One September Morning

One September Morning

One September Morning by Rosalind Noonan
What would you do if you received word that your husband was killed in the line of duty, but the events surrounding his death seemed suspicious? This, sadly, was the fate of Abby Stanton. After begrudgingly becoming a military wife when her husband, John, gave up his career as a football player for the Seattle Seahaws to enlist in the Army, Abby could never have imagined that her husband would be taken away from her so soon after. But when no one could answer her questions about how, exactly, her husband had died Abby's suspicions grew and she endeavoured to get to the bottom of it all. Soon Abby would learn of the terrible plot concocted by a member of John's own platoon, a plan that would create a gap in Abby's life, which he would be all too happy to fill.

One September Morning was a fantastic book! It was suspenseful and thrilling and kept me turning pages as fast as I could get them read. I always enjoy stories which invite readers to solve a mystery along with the main character. Rosalind Noonan creates such a dark, twisted antagonist that you will still get shivers long after putting this book down. This is a novel that I would happily re-read and one that I eagerly recommend to anyone looking for a good mystery-fiction novel. Of course, due to content I would suggest this novel for older readers (say, late teens onwards). A must-read!


  1. Adding to my must read list, Thanks Megan!

  2. I really enjoyed this book too - so much so that I have been watching and waiting for a second book!

    I just finished reading Noonan's second book 'In a Heartbeat' and found it just as enjoyable as her first. Still some mystery - but I thought she developed the character relationships more than her first book.

    Megan now has it - I am looking forward to reading her review.

    Jess - if you want either of these books - I have them and you are welcome to them anytime!
