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

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.
