My feature on the African American Christian Fiction icon is winding down, but here's another comment from a fan. Avid reader, reviewer and aspiring author, Tyora Moody had this to say about Victoria:

While designing the GoodGirlBookClubOnline.com website in 2000, I learned about “Temptations” by Victoria Christopher Murray. For a few years, I had struggled with finding books to read as I grew into my Christian faith. This novel truly ignited my passion for reading again. One of the things I really enjoy about Victoria’s novels since “Temptations” is how she continues to raise the bar with her characters and storylines. She’s a class act and inspiration for authors and readers of AA Christian Fiction.

Good luck winning the books and make sure to check back for a chance to win Too Little, Too Late.
