Booktalk: Nancy Warren, Author

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Today I’d like to introduce you to an author that raced through the ranks of my favorite writers, to take a firm spot among the Top5.
Nancy Warren* is the author of more that 60 novels, a three time finalist for the RITA award, and was honored by the Romantic Times Magazine. She creates very lively and likeable characters, and fast moving stories.

My first Nancy Warren book was ‘The Vampire Knitting Club‘. This is the first in a paranormal cozy, taking place in Oxford, England.

The Vampire Knitting Club: First in a Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series by [Nancy Warren]
In this first installment in a very entertaining series Lucy travels to Oxford to be with her Grandma, and keep busy in Granny’s yarn shop. Once there she finds the shop locked up tight, and is informed that Gran has passed on…or has she? There is a death certificate, and a will leaving the shop to Lucy. But Lucy also catches glimpses of Gran, and discovers a few hard to explain things going on in and around the shop. Including the fact that her beloved ancestor did not die of old age, she was murdered. Who would kill an adorable, kind Grandma?
Add a yummy detective, quite a few (non-scary) vampires, a cute cat, an abundance of yarns and cable sweaters, and you have a wonderful, lighthearted mystery.
And I’ve more good news – there are currently 9 books in this series. And the 10th one, ‘Garters and Gargoyles’, is being published June 10th, 2020. 😎

🌺Since I enjoyed those books so much I was delighted to discover a second series by Nancy Warren – The Great Witches Baking Show 

The Great Witches Baking Show: A culinary cozy mystery by [Nancy Warren]

In this paranormal cozy, Poppy Wilkinson is chosen to be a contestant on a very popular baking show. Not only would the title of ‘Best Baker’ be of help professionally, Poppy also hopes to find out more about her (witchy) origins on the setting of the show, ‘Broomwode Hall’.
When a contestant gets murdered on the set, Poppy and her new friends set out to find the culprit before the show is cancelled.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two installment in a very promising series. I mean, delicious baked goods, witches, a beautiful estate in England’s countryside – what could be better. 👩🏻‍🍳

There are currently two books in this series. The third one ‘A Rolling Scone’ will be published on May 20th, 2020.

🌺Since I recently discovered my love for historical fiction, imagine my delight to find out that Nancy Warren wrote ‘Death of a Flapper’, a cozy mystery set in Paris in the 1920s.

Death of a Flapper: A 1920s Cozy Historical Mystery (Abigail Dixon Mysteries Book 1) by [Nancy Warren]

In her wonderful, light-hearted style Nancy Warren lets the reader accompany Abigail Dixon on her adventure of a lifetime.
As a reporter from Chicago, Abby arrives in Paris to write for the Woman’s page of a newspaper. Before she can publish her first article, she’s involved in a murder. With the help of her lovely and colorful roommate, a fashion designer, a fellow reporter (Ernest Hemingway 🤓yes, that Ernest) she hopes to clear her name before she loses her head (Pun intented  🤦🏻‍♀️). Yes, in the 1920s the Guillotine was a very real threat.

🌺Currently I’m enjoying a brand-new series by this author. I’m about half-way through The Vampire Book Club, and am enjoying it as much as all the other books by Nancy Warren.
The Vampire Book Club: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Cozy Mystery by [Nancy Warren]

In this book, Quinn Calahan, a middle-aged, divorced witch, banned to a small town in Ireland, finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery before she even unpacks her bags. And there are even vampires living in the beautiful castle overlooking the tiny town – again, the non-scary kind. 🧛🏻‍♂️
As I write this, there is only one book out in this series, with the next two installments scheduled for release in July and October, respectively.

🌺Nancy Warren is also the writer of numerous romance novels. I’m sorry, but I can’t tell you anything about those, since I’m not a fan of that genre. But according to many reviews, those books are equally entertaining, and very well written.

Have you read any of these books? Did you enjoy them? Please let me know in the comments….I love a good ‘Booktalk’. 😎

Until next time 💕

    I read the first one (because of one of your previous posts) and enjoyed it. I will eventually get around to reading the rest in the series.
