Lucy Swift is in Oxford to spend time with her grandmother and figure out the next step of her life. She lost her job and caught her ex boyfriend cheating on her. What she doesn’t expect is to find out that her grandmother is dead and everything, including the knitting store, is now hers. It gets even weirder when she finds that her grandmother was murdered and is now a vampire.
This book was ok. I didn’t really like Lucy. She is very obsessive about her age and the lack of things she has done, which if you feel that way do something about it. She also doesn’t know how to knit and barely tries to learn. She doesn’t have the patience and it really shows in all her decisions. Lucy just felt like a flat character to me and I was more interested in the vampires.
I liked the concept of this book though. A group of vampires who have a knitting group and help solve mysteries. It was fun and unique. I had some issues though. Like I said, I didn’t love the main character. My biggest issue though was the pacing of the story. The pacing felt off and really made these 219 pages seem a lot longer. It felt like even though there were a lot of things happening the story was dragging along.
Overall, this was just an ok book. It is the first book so the series might pick up but I don’t know if I will actually read the second book of the series. We will see what the future holds though.
