Editorial Reviews


When Rain Falls is a delightful 'whodunit' that garners your interest on page one and keeps you guessing until the story ends.  Moody's sprinkle of romance adds just the right spice to make her debut novel an enjoyable read.
~ Patricia Haley, Bestselling author of Broken and Anointed

A showering of faith, love, and mystery. When Rain Falls proves that when life is cloudy, God will soon bring his sunshine. Make room on your bookshelf for the entire Victory Gospel Series.
 ~  Tia McCollors, author of Steppin' Into The Good Life

When Rain Falls is one of the best debut novels I've read in a long time. A page turner that will keep you at the edge of your seat
~ Vanessa Miller, Bestselling author of the Rain and Forsaken Series

From the Back Cover

"Why does God keep taking away the people I love?"

This is the lamentation of widow CANDACE JOHNSON when her best friend is brutally murdered. Ensnared by a deep-rooted bitterness, seeping her faith day by day, Candace is determined to seek justice.

Detective Darnell Jackson is in need of clues fast. The police captain is coming down hard on him and his partner to find out who murdered Pamela Coleman, the daughter of a high profile judge. Darnell confers with Candace to get the inside track on events leading up to the murder. As the investigation heats up, his growing attraction for Candace plays havoc on Darnell's judgment.

Little does she know, Candace's quest to find the truth has led her straight to the killer. She's already lost loved ones. Now Candace must choose to completely trust God with her own life.

The title refers to the life of one Candace Johnson and she's in the midst of a personal torrent of perpetual heartache. I won't give away those issues, read the back cover copy for a preview, but needless to say, she's an emotional wreck.

Enter Detective Darnell Jackson of the Charlotte Police Department. His main agenda is to solve the case presented before him, but simultaneously, he's got this other agenda that slowly evolves and the target of it is one Ms. Johnson. Fortunately for him, despite common sense to the contrary, she's feeling his vibe as well. You'll understand that statement once you read the book.

I don't fancy myself a reader of romantic suspense/mystery. I'm more of a straight-laced police procedural/thriller kind of guy, but Ms. Moody kept both facets of the genre building toward the climax and kept this reader turning the pages. It takes its time to get where it's going focusing on the world of relationships in the lives of Candace and Darnell, but cranks up the pace where it needs to at the end.

For the sake of the genre requirements, Darnell, and he thought as much too, may have tipped his informational hand a bit with Candace that might be over the line in a real life investigation, but like Bobby Caldwell sang back in the day, `What You Won't Do For Love'.

A plethora of tangled relationships drives the engine of When Rain Falls and it's up to Candace and Darnell and a few other chosen folks to decipher truths from lies. A couple minor craft quibbles, Tyora: 1) Trust the simple believability of contracted words; it makes the dialogue sound more realistic. But too, we're all different and our myriad relationship contacts in life affect our word choices.

Format: Paperback
Candace Johnson was only twelve when she lost her mother. After seventeen years of marriage, she lost her husband. Now her best friend, Pamela Coleman, has been killed. Losing so many loved ones has caused Candace to put her faith in God on the back burner. Will she ever be able to connect with the heavenly Father again?

I liked Candace. She was a strong, independent woman and a good mother to two teens - Rachel (16) and Daniel (14). I also liked Beulah and Mrs. Roberts, and some of the conversations Candace had with them. Candace stopped attending church regularly after her husband's death, but even though she was struggling with her faith, she did not forget where her help came from. Candace knew how to call on God in times of need.

I understood Candace's pain, but I did not agree with her thinking God took her loved ones. Her mother, her husband, her best friend, each of them died in a way that I don't believe God would have anything to do with. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11) Reading this story, I was reminded of how sometimes Christians don't take the time to thank God when good things happen, but they are quick to blame Him, or say He's the One responsible, when something goes wrong. It's as if they forget there's also an Enemy. The thief (Satan) comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy (John 10:10).

This novel has sixty chapters, but most are not lengthy. The story grabbed me from the beginning. It was written in a way that kept me wondering and guessing who the killer was and, although there was a bit of repetitiveness, it was not predictable.

Format: Paperback
Tyora Moody's "When Rain Falls" is about the life of Mrs. Candace Johnson as she endures sorrow, pain and death. Candace was a motherless child. After marrying the man of her dreams and having two children, her husband was murdered. Then Candace's best friend, Pamela, was found murdered. "Why does God keep taking away people I love?" Rachel, Candace daughter cries out. Readers will have to read the book to find out why and the many plots and twists this novel takes.

With "When Rain Falls," I walked away satisfied as a reader and a reviewer that this was a great "whodunnit" novel. I rated this book five stars because it was an excellent read. You will encounter: death, crime, violence, love, betrayal, spirituality, adultery, and the trauma of dreams.

The setting was in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2008. My favorite character was Candace Johnson for being a resilient strong woman; a widow raising two teenagers who has faced death more than
her fair share.

The writer's style was excellent. This was a page turner once you got involved. It started off a little dry. Everything was realistically set and believable. All I can say is remember the clues to see what happens next. The character development of each character was well thought out and placed exactly where they needed to be placed in this novel. The flow and the suspense were built in a crescendo and unbelievable good.

Readers witness a police station, crime scenes and a mega-church for the services. The teen-angers are rambunctious teenagers who do silly things such as playing basketball, video games with raging

"When Rain Falls" would be a great book for book clubs or mystery book lovers to tear apart or if you love a great mystery on a cold winter's night. Enjoy this novel and throw the answers to the wind.
