September Shadows offers a first-rate chiller from the pen of Jane Toombs, who continues the Always a Bridesmaid series with THE ABANDONED BRIDE (4). As a lovely librarian marches down the aisle to marry her handsome fianc, she is stunned when her bridegroom bolts out of the church with a mysterious stranger in hot pursuit. What dark secret links the two men, and why does the lady feel only relief at the abrupt termination of her wedding? Ms. Toombs really comes up trumps with this dandy tale featuring clever plotting and appealing characters.
