#A PLAIN VANILLA MURDER by Susan Wittig Albert


The China Bayles series is an old friend, I started reading the first book in 1992 and watch each year for the next installment. Each book has brought me additional knowledge on a herb and a good read as I follow China and Ruby throughout their lives. They have been good friends that I would not, want to miss.
This book brought my attention to the herb Vanilla. I did not realize that vanilla came from a plant even when I was buying it on our trips to Mexico each year. That vanilla is all gone now. 
It is time for China and Ruby's annual highly popular vanilla workshop. And China shows the pictures she took on a college trip to see the vanilla beans harvested. Meanwhile, Police Chief Sheila who is pregnant is called to the college campus in a possible murder being passed as suicide. China breaks her vow of not using her lawyer personality to side a close friend who is in trouble and aids Sheila. There are plenty of suspects and Sheila is able to find an answer. There are some minor subplots so we know what other friends are doing. Ruby's daughter, Amy and her partner want another baby. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
Recipes are included.
