Summary

From Book 1:

I was a divorced, middle-aged witch banished to Ireland. 

My life could be summed up in a limerick....

There once was a misguided witch 

Who tried a man’s fate to switch 

Her punishment set 

To Ireland she must get 

But better than feathers and pitch!  

With a name like Quinn Calahan, I sounded as Irish as a leprechaun dancing a jig on a four leafed clover, but the truth was, I’d never been closer to the emerald isle than drinking green beer at the St Patrick’s day street party in Boston until I messed up so badly I had to leave the US. I was offered a job in a tiny village in Ireland that no one’s ever heard of. And I think that was the point in sending me there. How much trouble could a divorced, middle-aged witch get into in a village that boasted very few residents, one crumbling castle that attracted no tourists, and a post office that was only open Mondays and Thursdays? 

You’d be surprised. 

You will fall in love with this series about second chances, magical mayhem, and book club unlike any other. From the author of the best-selling Vampire Knitting Club series.

Ever wondered what happened to Oscar Wilde?

Nice easy going 'cosy' mystery which doesn't take too much thinking about. Perfect accompaniment to a leisurely stroll, an hours knitting or zipping through the housework. It was nice fo have a crossover from the vampire knitting club series, a bit like an old friend dropping in. They didn't add much to the story but it was a pleasant aside. There were enough suspects to make it interesting but not so many that you lost track of the action when you had to leave the story for a while. I particularly liked the idea of Oscar Wilde may have joined the ranks of the undead and joined a vampire book club! My only criticism is the English and Irish accents the reader presented. I found they grated a little and were distracting. Not distracting enough to stop me listening to more in the series. On the whole a pleasant change to listening to the news or podcasts whilst pottering around. Nice one!

Another Brilliant Series

Nancy Warren does it again. Another great read. I love the fact the main character is over the age of 40. She writes such great characters and I love that this is set in Ireland. I also really love Holly MCarthy as the narrator. Can’t wait for the next instalment!

Love this new series I started

This book was so fun and entertaining. Just the right amount of mystery, small village intrigue, and interesting characters. I can't wait to read the next book to learn the stories behind the characters, (Quinn especially) and investigate the next mystery. I just love bookstores, so that is the perfect setting!

Fun read!

I do like the Vampire Knitting Club the best, this is an equally fun read. I was reading/listening to a lot of WWII stories and heavy dramas. This was just what I needed. Light and engaging. Kept me interested and was pretty informative on Wicca practices.

Slow start, but good ending...

I’m a huge fan of Nancy’s Vampire Knitting Club books so of course this one also appealed to me! It was a tad slow to start but once the action started it was very cleverly done! And having a cameo from some of my favorite knitting vamps helped too! Definitely a fun little mystery and can’t wait to see what the next one in the series holds for our little bookworm witch and her new Irish friends.

Vampires, Witches & A Dead Body!

An excellent new series that will delight and entertain you! Who hasn't dreamed of living in a small village in the Irish countryside in an adorably quaint cottage and running a fabulous bookstore? I know I have! Toss in a group of voracious reading vampires who hold a midnight book club and you are set! Of course it would help if the first day you arrive to check out the bookstore you don't find a dead body behind the checkout desk! At least you are too new in town to be the murder suspect, but being new in town means that everyone else is suspected! Toss in visitors from the Vampire Knitting series and you not only have the perfect story, but a lovely cross over as well! If you haven't read the Vampire Knitting series that will not interfere with your enjoyment, but I do have to say that you are missing out on hours of entertainment! This author weaves wonderful characters and brings them to life in a manner that makes you not only enjoy the books, but feel as if you have made new friends. The plot is wonderfully woven to give you nice twists and turns to keep you guessing! The narrator of this book is absolutely divine and really breathes extra life into the characters and story! She is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! I absolutely can't wait for the next book in this series!

What a way to start a series!

I immediately fell in live with The Vampire Book Club and with the narration. Nancy Warren has a way with visuals that make you feel like you are walking beside the characters the entire way. I loved how many characters there are and all of their colorful backgrounds. (narrator did an excellent job) This one also kept me on my toes which in return had the ending pleasently surprising me. I can not wait to move on to the second one.

Incredible Cozy Mystery!

The Vampire Book Club by Nancy Warren (The Vampire Book Club, Book 1) Narrated by: Hollis McCarthy Release date: July 14, 2020 The Vampire Book Club is the first book in the new paranormal cozy mystery series by Nancy Warren. There are currently two other books in the series, so this is totally bingeable! This book introduces Quinn Calahan, a divorced, middle-aged witch who was banished to Ireland after messing up big time in the States. I really like Quinn. She has a good heart, a strong will and is more mature & experienced in life. This book is filled with all the supernatural goodness that I look for in a cozy mystery: a quant Irish village, witches, a book shop, a book club, a hot vampire, and a mystery! The narration by Hollis McCarthy is absolute perfection! She really knows how to bring a story to life! I definitely recommend this book! I received a review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Nancy Warren does it again !

The Vampire Book Club is a wonderful story. The characters are fun and likable. I want to be friends with Quinn and shop in The Blarney Tome bookshop. Already in love with Lachlan. This read has everything you need in a cozy mystery, a quaint village, witches, vampires and a murder to be solved. Nancy Warren the author does it again. The narration by Hollis McCarthy was smooth and reflective of the action, with delightful accents for each character. You will love it

Could one of your favorite authors be a vampire??

The series is amazing! It starts out with a witch breaking the rules and being banished to Ireland of all places! The meat of the story centers around a vampire book club in said witches bookshop reviewing books and solving mysteries together! What more could anyone want with a beautiful country, castles, books and vampires! Sign me up please! Recommend this series to everyone!

Worth Listening To

Listening to the narrator tell this story was calming and soothing. After Quinn did something horrible in the witch community she relocates to Ireland. She meets Lachlan, the handsome next door neighbor. While trying to get use to living in a small village in a different country Quinn finds a dead body in the bookshop she manages. She finds herself becoming a sleuth and finding out the village secrets, she never wanted to know. For me it was easy to start loving the characters and the village. I had hoped that Quinn and Lochlan would have developed a romance, may in a later book. I can't wait to hear the rest of the series. I think Nancy Warren is a phenomenal writer, a weaver of a superb story. I highly recommend this audio.
