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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Debut June 1, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will be back for more October 5, 2013
By tricia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first book I've read by Tyora Moody but I will be back for more. As a fellow Christian I enjoy reading books that don't compromise God's values but also don't come across as preachy. It's a mystery, suspence, with just the right amount of romance. I connected with the characters. I didn't want to book to end which for me is a sure sign of a good novel. If you're looking for a new enjoyable, author to try, read this book.

By L27
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When Rain Falls is a riveting first novel by author Tyora Moody. Tyora Moody has successfully delivered to her readers an exciting and spirit filled first novel. She has created interesting and believable characters. It is When Rain Falls story line, characters and the author's craftwomanship that holds her readers attention. Tyora Moody has taken great care to deliver a well written manuscript.

Ms. Moody is a Christian and shares her love of God without proselytizing. She has written a novel which will appeal to all audiences, Christians, all communities of faith and the secular community. You do not have to be Christian to enjoy When Rain Falls.

In today's economy everyone is mindful of how resources are spent. We hope the literature we choose or each purchase we make is a wise choice. When Rain Falls is a wise choice.

When Rain Falls has met my criteria for recommendation. My criteria is a well crafted manuscript. One which captures the readers imagination. The characters are believable. There's a thought provoking message, which ministers to the spirit. When Rain Falls has met all criteria. I look forward to Tyora Moody's next novel. Congratulations and well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raining Suspense May 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a great debut!

Candace Johnson has suffered her share of loses. She has lost her mother, husband and now her best friend. All these loses were tragic. She was raised by an aunt who was a devout Christian. Upon high school graduation, she was determined to get from under her aunts roof. After the death of her husband, she loses hope in the police force and stops attending church. When she learns of the death of her best friend, she decides to find out who the murderer is. Will she hinder Darnell's investigation? Will justice be served?

This was a suspenseful debut. Moody does an excellent ob of tying in the murders of the husband and best friend. Character development was phenomenal. The characters were real and relatable. Christian principles sre present but not preachy or forced on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised by Whodunit!! May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When Rain Falls by Tyora Moody, is an excellent depiction of a troubled adult, who lives in fear, rattled by her childhood. Candace Johnson, mother of two, struggles with real-life nightmares as tragedy seems to find her. The murder of her beloved husband leaves her a widow after 17 years of marriage. The mother of two, longs for answers that would bring her much needed closure/peace in the death of her spouse, however, tragedy strikes again! Her best friend Pamela, is also taken from her, in yet another murder. Candace is determined to find answers, but what explanation could there possibly be for the loss of those you love?

Author Tyora Moody does a brilliant job in bringing readers through this suspense-filled journey. Reading this murder mystery novel, you will find yourself trying to crack the case right along with Candace and her newly found "admirer," Detective Darnell Jackson. The suspense will have you on the edge of your seat! Just when you think you solved the mystery another twist comes into play! In reading When Rain Falls, there were times when I found the storyline to be so vivid that "theme song" (music) would be cascading in my head.... You'll get so wrapped up in the characters that you'll find yourself taking sides or talking out loud, as if they were in the room with you.~Missionary La' Tanyha, of Faith ABeliver's Virtual Book Club
