Publisher's Summary

What if the fortune teller at the local village fair is a witch? And all her fortunes come true - even when she foresees a death....

When Lucy Swift's cousin Violet decides to take over as the fortune teller at Moreton-under-Wychwood's annual summer fête, Lucy thinks being her assistant will be a fun way to spend a Saturday. That is, until someone's murdered, and the locals turn on Violet, who foresaw the death.

To save her, Lucy and her band of undead amateur sleuths have to find out what's really going on in this charming Cotswolds village. What better way than to offer knitting classes? No one has to know that the teacher is a vampire.

But uncovering the dark secrets under the postcard - prettiness will bring great danger to Lucy and those she loves.

LOVE THIS SERIES

AND THIS BOOK DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. I LOVE THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN LUCY AND RAFE AND WITH THE OTHER LIKEABLE (AND NOT SO LIKEABLE) CHARACTERS. I DO HOPE TO SEE LUCY COME INTO MORE OF HER POWERS IN THE NEXT BOOK.

Such a fun listen!

I thoroughly enjoyed this series (while knitting of course). I especially enjoyed the narrator’s performance which was lively and engaging. The narrator had great and captivating voices for the different characters. I will listen to the whole series again and I hope there will be additional books in this series:)

Out of the Knit Shop and into the Witch Hunts

With a change of scene we find Lucy helping out at a local summer fair with her cousin Violet who is working as a fortune teller. Soon after Violet, using her actual prophetic abilities, gives bad news to all her customers one of them is murdered. In a small town the locals soon turn against Violet and a mob mentality starts to emerge with charges of witchcraft. Lucy is on the case and committed to rooting out the real murderer and getting the townsfolk to forget their fears about witches. Twists and turns and lots of interaction with characters new and old make this story another solid entry in the series. The narration continues to be wonderful and the romance remains very vague and undeveloped with Rafe being more forward in this volume and Ian almost non existent. I will say I felt there were some elements that were extremely forced in my opinion as Lucy immediately wants to connect the only two murders that have happened in this tiny town one is the present moment murder of a local in an open public fairground with clear intent and the other is a 30 year old cold case where a homeowner interrupted a burglary and was killed. Lucy immediately suggests this is a serial killer. This completely baffled me and felt extremely awkward, two murders with 3 decades of separation, no similarity in MO, one an accident and one a premeditated act of violence. It just felt contrived and like lazy writing to be honest mashing things together instead of creating a story that drew them into connection. Did not stop me from listening the rest of the world and characters are entertaining but the mystery story of the book I think is easily the worst so far in the series, which is still better than a good deal of cozies. I will be curious to see what happens in book 7.
