The second in a new series from the author of The Murdoch Mysteries, November Rain features PI Charlotte Frayne investigating two mysteries in post-war Toronto, one about a veteran injured in the Great War, and another involving suspected communist infiltrators at a women’s wear manufacturer. As the November clouds darken, Charlotte struggles to solve the two mysteries at the same time—until they intersect. | Book 1 is also available; Book 3 is forthcoming in 2021.


“This is the second book in the Paradise Café series featuring private investigator Charlotte Frayne and it’s even better than the first. Jennings has made the jump from Victorian Toronto to the Depression era with ease and, once again, proves that Canadian history is far from dull. ”

- Margaret Cannon

“Jennings is nothing if not a careful and intelligent writer, so I always know connections made by the characters have a meaning that will advance the plot. She’s also that wonderful and increasingly rare thing, concise. She doesn’t skimp her words but she doesn’t waste them either. Her sensitive and thoughtful explication and observation of character in her books adds to their depth and makes them linger in the memory long after you’ve finished reading. ”
