Vanilla Chai and A Vanishing Victim: A British Cozy Murder Mystery with a Female Sleuth
(A Waterwheel Cafe Mystery)
by Victoria Tait
I’ve loved every Victoria Tait book I’ve read, and Vanilla Chai and a Vanishing Victim is no exception. This is a cozy mystery series that makes me want to jump into the books and live there, and I think you’ll feel the same!
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
The plot is clever and complex, with several subplots, making this quite a robust story. Twists and turns abound . . . I recommend VANILLA CHAI AND A VANISHING VICTIM to cozy mystery readers who enjoy intricate plots, engaging characters, and a continual parade of culinary delights throughout the pages.

Vanilla Chai and a Vanishing Victim takes readers back to the charming Cotswolds region of England, with its picturesque landscape and cozy atmosphere. The plot of the story is solidly constructed with a satisfying number of red herrings and unexpected twists that keep readers guessing whodunit until the book’s final chapters.
~Book Club Librarian
Vanilla Chai and A Vanishing Victim is well-plotted and so well-written. Ms. Tait’s wonderful characters draw readers right into the story and soon the pages are flipping rapidly. I have been delightfully entertained by every book Victoria Tait has written. I recommend them all.

A missing child. A half-baked ransom demand. Can a community cop sift through clues and rescue the tot before teatime?
Sergeant Keya Varma’s culinary dreams come true as she joyfully opens her own café. And attending her sister’s wedding is the cherry on the cake. But her excitement sinks like a souffle when a customer’s little boy disappears.
Shaken as well as stirred into action, the part-time police officer joins the search, but she’s shattered when even a ransom payment doesn’t bring the rug rat back home.
For Keya, justice is served with a side of scones, but can she save the child before the clotted cream turns sour?
Indulge in the Waterwheel Café cozy mystery series, where Keya Varma mixes crime with coffee and crêpes. If you crave appetising characters, a dash of humour, and a dollop of English charm, you’ll devour Victoria Tait’s delicious tale.
