Praise for Rainy Day Women

“Determined to clear a close friend who’s suspected of murdering a
popular feminist leader, Austin Starr struggles to balance family and
personal in dependence. Vivid detail of the 1960s and a clever plot make
Rainy Day Women an outstanding follow-up to Kay Kendall’s strong
debut, Desolation Row. Austin Starr is a memorable protagonist, and
Kendall’s skill at crafting a compelling mystery kept me turning the pages!”
– Robert Rotstein, author of The Bomb Maker’s Son and Corrupt Practices

Kay Kendall’s second Austin Starr mystery will have you believing it’s
1969 all over again. In a book where the musical references mean you’ll
find yourself humming tunes now known as ‘classic vinyl,’ Kendall peppers
her work with references to the times which make the decades disappear
– and she respects her readers enough to not overdo it. Her sense of place
as she allows the mystery to unfold within Vancouver’s University of
British Columbia, beset by the rain for which the ‘wet’ coast is known,
is pitch perfect. Hot diggity – a thoroughly enjoyable read. Now I’m off
to dig out my Bob Dylan albums and find an old bra I can burn.”
– Cathy Ace, author of The Cait Morgan Mysteries
and the WISE Enquiries Agency Mysteries

Feminism, the ‘60s, murder, and a friend in big trouble. Austin Starr is
back to help, leaving her husband behind but bringing her baby along.
Rainy Day Women is an entertaining and fast-paced mystery set in
a turbulent time. Right on! ” – Bill Crider, Texas author
