Never Would've Guessed Angel Roberts was raised by her grandparents. The day of her fifth birthday party, her mother mysteriously disappeared. Twenty years later, the case is still unsolved. Angel wants answers. Wes Cade is an investigative reporter. He's working on a missing person case when he comes in contact with Angel. They decide to work together. Will their collaboration get them the answers they need? I was pulled in from the beginning. The new characters mesh well with previous characters. There wasn't any overshadowing. Tyora Moody is a great story teller. You feel like you’re right there with them. This is the second in the series. Even though “When Memories Fade” can be read as a stand-alone book, I encourage reading in order. I highly recommend. This is a great mystery that keeps you guessing. Reviewed by: Jas

Tyora Moody's Victory Gospel Series is amazing. She focuses on female entrepreneurs; women who work hard for the money. That is just one bonus of the series. When Memories Fade presents more bonuses like real-life dilemmas and predicaments that almost anyone can relate to with the exception of the crime. In this second book of the series, she focuses on a mother-daughter relationship that requires closure of a very complicated kind. Moody also explores extended family relationships from grandparent caregivers to children who are caregivers to their grandparents. I love those dynamics. I also love the characters, including the protagonist and her supporting cast - the good and evil. Like all of her other books, this takes faith on the everyday journey. Wonderful read.

This book had me on the edge of my seat. At one point, I thought I'd figured it out and I was really wrong! Tyora Moody expertly spins the story and makes you want to dig right along with Angel and Wes as they try to solve two mysteries at once. After I read this, I realized that this is part of a series, but this is a complete story in itself and could really stand alone. I'm going to go back and get the other book too, because I'm sure that story is just as good! I really enjoyed the story. The characters spoke to me. I can't imagine what Angel was going through, but I certainly felt her emotions. She did have a little tendency to overreact sometimes, but she knew that about herself, but at least she knew... I can't wait to see what's next!

A suspenseful story that delved into the topics of closure and forgiveness, in a spiritual yet no nonsense way. I was literally on the edge of my seat, up into the last chapter. Tyora Moody has another winner on her hands. A must read!!!

Tyora has done it again, another page turner. We return to Charlotte NC and Victory Gospel Church, along with some of the characters we met in When Rain Falls. Now you do not need to have read the first book, to enjoy this one, but you will be missing another great read. Angel Robert's Mother has been missing now for over twenty years. She wants answers, but how? With much prayer, things start to fall into place, and she meets some people who are willing to help. A childhood friend, now news reported, Wes Cade, is one of them. His Grandfather, a former police detective, Lenny Cade, is in the thrones of Alzheimer, worked this case. We then have another girl go missing, with the same type of disappearance. Will she never been seen again, or will she wake up a sleeping devil? Are these cases related. We have a bit of romance, forgiving old friends, mystery, suspense. This one will keep you guessing almost to the end. Just when I thought I knew the answer, nope...I changed my opinion. You will have to keep going to know who wins, if anyone? I received this book from the Author Tyora Moody, and was not required to give a positive review.

I always hold my breath when I read the second novel from an author whose debut effort I enjoyed. I find myself starting the book praying that it will be just as good as, or better than, the first one. When Memories Fade passed that test with flying colors. This is the second book in Tyora Moody’s Victory Gospel series, and it held my attention just as well as the first one (When Rain Falls) did. Whenever I read a whodunnit, I do my best to figure out who the villain of the piece is and then why he or she committed the crime. I thought I had it, but Tyora threw me a curve that had me swinging and missing like a member of Charlie Brown’s baseball team. This book got off to a running start and never slowed down. Angel Roberts wants to solve the twenty year old mystery of her mother’s disappearance while investigative reporter Wes Cade is working a different case- the recent disappearance of a local celebrity. Each of them carries a similar burden- solve a seemingly unsolvable case while dealing with elderly relatives with medical issues. Once they realize their separate cases may have a common thread, they work together. This was a complex work, yet easy to read. Anyone who has ever had to help care for a sick parent or grandparent will be able to relate to Angel and Wes’ attempts to juggle work and family responsibility. Through these characters, we get to explore such meaningful topics as Alzheimer’s diseases, strokes, home health care and the ups and downs of the music industry from the inside- the author does a good job of providing insights into each of these topics without short-changing any of them. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel (especially since I was completely wrong about whodunnit) and look forward to reading more from this author.

When Memories Fade is a story that touches the mind and spirit. It has been twenty plus years since the disappearance of her mother. Unsettled about the unsolved mystery, Angel Roberts sets out on a mission to find the answers she needs. The one person she believes can help her is her grandmother. The gateway to that option closes when the grandmother suffers a stroke and answers she might have are locked inside her mind. Determined to solve this cold case Angel continues her quest for answers. Along the way she meets Wes Cade, a reporter seeking answers to many of the same questions she has. Their journey toward truth will cause them to learn much about the mystery and themselves. The relationship they develop is refreshing in that it is grows without the trappings of unnecessary sex scenes, but by no means is boring. Add to that the mystery to be solved and you have a read that is thought-provoking, intelligent and entertaining. Author Moody's sophomore project showcases her talents through the development of her characters, the pacing of her story and the welcomed twists that keep the reader engaged. Additionally she touches on a subject that many today are faced with--the challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer. Dr. Linda F. Beed / Reviewer On Assignment Reviews ARC provided by author

The second installment of the Victory Gospel Series, “When Memories Fade”, by Tyora Moody does not disappoint. Just as I was intrigued with the first installment, “When Rain Falls,” I was equally intrigued and captivated by the storyline of “When Memories Fade.” Freelance videographer, Angel Roberts and dashing news reporter, Wes Cade share a common goal. They are both out to solve crimes of the past, that seem to have carried over into the future with the disappearance of Melanie Stowe. Talented Melanie Stowe, a top contender in the talent show American Voices. Her sudden disappearance is baffling for law enforcement and for Wes and Angel too. Angel is determined to find out what happened to her mother some twenty years ago. Wes is determined to find out what happened to Melanie, and solving the Cold Case of Angel’s missing mom might surprisingly be his ‘ram in the bush’. Moody sculptures Angel and Wes’s attraction to each other with finesse. The Christian representation is not overpowering, but is weaved graciously throughout this mystery/suspense tale. I thoroughly enjoyed the sophomore novel of Tyora Moody. What an engaging story from beginning to end. This is Christian mystery at its best; a welcomed and much needed genre incorporation across Christian fiction lines. (Reviewed by Shelia E. Lipsey)

Author: Tyora Moody Published By: Urban Christian Age Recommended: YA-Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 5 Review "When Memories Fade" by Tyora Moody was a second book in this author's series. I found this mystery/suspence novel very well delievered as it deals with life as it has happened toso many African-Americans by way of a 'Stroke and Alzheimer's Disease.' We will find that two of the main characters relatives are going through this. This author did a very wonderful job with bringing these issues into this story. What will be their outcome? In "When Memories Fade" we find Angel Roberts who is twenty -five, a videographer...owns her own business,lived with her (grams)grandmother) since childhood.... who now has suffered a stroke... and we find Angel was searching for her mother who had been a singer who had mysteriously disappeared some twenty years ago(a cold case) ...was she alive or dead? Angel wanted to find out the answers to her questions because she wanted to do a 'Document on her Mother's Elisas' Life' and bring this all to a close for her. Also what had happened to Angel's father in all of this? As the this story continues onto where there is a 'Investigator Reporter'... Wesley Cade who has a boss at work wanting him to take the lead and find out what has happened to a singer that has just disappeared in there area. WAIT: We have a singer who had disappeared over twenty years ago and has never been found and now their was now another singer who had recently disappeared!...Could there be a coincident? Through much prayer will Angel be able keep her faith high? Just a few of the things that Angel has had to go through...other than being a caretaker for her Grams, dealing with ex boyfriend and ex best friend who were getting married (trying to forgive it all) and trying to solve a case that seemed like there was no answers ....how would she make it out of all of this to be able to believe and trust again? Thank God for a praying friend that Angel had. After Angel tries to touch base with Wesley (Wes) grandfather...but was unable to due to the fact Detective Cade was suffering from Alzheimer's... however, she seeks help from Wes and he gladly does ..and when they when they got together sending prayers to the almighty...life will never be the same for these two. Now, this is where I say you must pick up "When Memories Fade" to find out how the author will lead you through this wonderful well written read. I must say that all of the characters and there were many were all so well developed in capiviting in making "When Memories Fade" one wholesome read that was simply enjoyable and could not put down until the last word...and that ending leaving you only to say WOW! I loved it! This is one read that you will not soon forget and would I recommend "When Memories Fade".... my answer would be definitely YES! Well done to the Author: Tyora Moody!
