Review; Fair Isle and Fortunes by Nancy Warren
Description from GoodreadsWhat 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 féte, 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.
Fair Isle and Fortunes can be read as a stand-alone mystery in this best-selling series. There's no violence or gore, just a good, clean mystery, with a lot of fun, a crazy-smart cat, tangled knitting, and a few laughs.
My Thoughts on the Book
Fair Isle and Fortunes is a charming and fun read with a picturesque setting. The mystery is well crafted with a few red herrings thrown into the mix and I had no idea who the murderer was until the very end. I also really like several of the characters, who are well written.
