When Rain Falls

Author: Tyora Moody
Publisher: Kensington
March 2012
ISBN: 978-1601628220
Genre: Romantic suspense/Urban Christian

Candace Johnson is the widow of a police officer, and she still keeps in contact with her husband’s former partner. She has two tween children, and is owner of a beauty salon. Her best friend, Pamela Coleman, called her late one night and said she had something to tell her, but she was tired, and they decided to put it off until the morning when Pamela had a beauty appointment. But Pamela never showed up for her appointment. Candy hears on the news that Pamela has been murdered.

Dectective Darnell Jackson is the investigating officer and his captain is coming down hard on him because Pamela is the daughter of a high-profile judge. The police have no leads, but knowing Candy is her best friend, they show up asking questions. The murder appears to have been a crime of passion, and to Candy’s knowledge, Pamela’s only ‘boyfriend’ is a ‘happily-married man.’

The leads die out, but Candy can’t let her friend’s death go. Her questioning leads her straight to the killer—and now the murderer has Candy on her hit list as well. Now Candy has to trust God with her own life.

WHEN RAIN is Ms. Moody’s debut novel, and the first book in the Victory Gospel series. Candy is a very realistic heroine, still hurting after the death of her husband two years earlier, and not ready to move on. The death of her best friend was adding insult to injury, and suddenly, Candy is left floundering, hurting, and wondering why everyone she loves is taken away from her.

I enjoyed reading WHEN RAIN FALLS by Ms. Moody and am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. If you like Urban Christian and romantic suspense, then this is a book that you’ll want to read. It kept me guessing until the end who the killer might be. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $14.95. 288 pages.
