Summary

Elderflower Tea Shop is next door to Cardinal Woolsey's, the yarn shop Lucy runs and home to the late-night Vampire Knitting Club. The tea shop owners are a pair of octogenarian spinsters and old family friends, so Lucy wants to help clear up the mystery that's keeping their shop closed. But murder isn't the only issue troubling the Miss Watts. A man has come between them. Miss Florence Watt is being romanced by an old flame, one Mary Watt distrusts.

In between figuring out who, among his many enemies, might have poisoned the unpleasant Colonel Montague, Lucy's trying to brush up on her magic spells before the Wiccan potluck dinner her witchy cousin insists she attend. However, she's still settling into being a witch and since she botched a spell and blew up her kitchen, she's taking the magic slowly.

Her knitting endeavors aren't much better. Between purling when she should knit and dropping so many stitches her hand-knit scarf looks like it was attacked by giant moths, there are days Lucy thinks she'll pack it all in and move back to Boston. She might, except she'd miss her beloved undead grandmother, her new friends, one very sexy vampire, and a local detective who is very much alive.

What an enjoyable series to read.

I have read/listened to Bk 1 & 2----------NOW I'M HOOKED.

From the streets of Oxford England in a cosy knitting shop--------Witches, Vampires and murders to deal with. Read and enjoy.

Thank you to Nancy Waren for the story and to Sarah Zimmerman to the excellent narration.

Tea Service Tragedy

We return to the series and this volume happens at a slightly faster pace than the last with folks trying to find a rhythm and Lucy trying to navigate her new role as shopkeeper. There are funny moments as she deals with her newly turned vamp grandmother, burgeoning magical abilities, and social circles both human and supernatural. The twists and turns of the mystery were a delight to listen along to and Sarah Zimmerman continues to do a marvelous job narrating realistic characters with a range of accents. The murders and drama with the townsfolk was done well and drew me in and I felt emotionally invested in finding out the truth. There was only one moment where Lucy after making repeated comments about her fear of the main male vampire she talks with then runs headlong into unnecessary danger that left me confused and bewildered as it felt totally contradictory to most of what Lucy usually does but resolved quite quickly and even other characters pointed out her illogical choice. I continue to enjoy this exploration through the eyes of this little knit shop with growing communities in both worlds for our main character. There is really no romance to speak of but a delightful expansion on the varying relationships in the town. This definitely builds nicely on the first volume and I look forward to the next.
