Author: Tyora Moody
Publisher: Urban Books/Kensington

ISBN: 978-1601627537
Genre: Contemporary/urban romance/mystery

Angel Roberts has embraced her new faith, but past memories remain fresh. When her beloved grandmother suffers a stroke, Angel sets out to investigate a mystery that has created family tensions and lingered since she was five years old. What happened to her mother?

She teams up with investigative reporter, Wes Cade, a man obsessed with his Alzheimer stricken grandfather's remaining memories. As Angel lets her guard down with Wes, his determination to get the story could push her to the edge. Is his interest in her or the story?

Angel must conquer her fears to find the truth. Unknown to her someone close is working feverishly to stop Angel from unlocking the truth of what really happened to her mother. Who will win?

Angel’s mom vanished when she was five years old. Now her grandmother has suffered a stroke, and Angel is more determined to discover what happened to her mother than ever. Wes’ grandfather worked the case, but now he has Alzheimers. However, the case has remained near to Wes’ grandfather’s heart since Angel’s mom was his friend’s daughter.

When another African American singer goes missing, the scenario seems similar.  But the one person who knows the truth will do anything to stop Angel and Wes from finding out.

I enjoyed getting to know Angel and Wes and their search for truth, while juggling caring for family members into their routine. It made for a book fraught with tension of differing kinds, and an interesting read. If you like urban romances, you might consider picking up WHEN MEMORIES FADE. It is book 2 in the Victory Gospel Series, but it easily stands alone. Readers might want to read When Rain Falls to find out another secondary characters story. Discussion questions are included at the end. $14.95. 288 pages.
