Not A Sound

Summary: A shocking discovery and chilling secrets converge in this latest novel from New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf

When a tragic accident leaves nurse Amelia Winn deaf, she spirals into a depression that ultimately causes her to lose everything that matters–her job, her husband, David, and her stepdaughter, Nora. Now, two years later and with the help of her hearing dog, Stitch, she is finally getting back on her feet. But when she discovers the body of a fellow nurse in the dense bush by the river, deep in the woods near her cabin, she is plunged into a disturbing mystery that could shatter the carefully reconstructed pieces of her life all over again.

As clues begin to surface, Amelia finds herself swept into an investigation that hits all too close to home. But how much is she willing to risk in order to uncover the truth and bring a killer to justice?

New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf has been described as “masterful” and “intelligent” and compared to Lisa Scottoline and Jodi Picoult. Introducing her most compelling heroine yet, she delivers a taut and emotional thriller that proves she’s at the top of her class.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’m pretty new to the genius of Heather Gudenkauf only having read 1 other book by her, but when I saw this book- I knew I had to request it. The cover, the main character, and the summary all drew me in.


What I liked:

Cover. Ya’ll know how I adore my covers and I really love this one. My only regret is that I requested this via Netgalley so I cannot gaze adoringly at the cover as I would if I had it paperback ARC or hardcover.

Amelia. Amelia is at the top of her game when we meet her, but her fate quickly turns. I’ve known people who were deaf from birth, but never known someone who lost their hearing in the age of life that Amelia was. It must be frustrating to be able to hear for years and then.. nothing. I liked how Heather explained things about the way that Amelia was coping and learning new skills to compensate her loss of hearing. It made Amelia seem more real and gave me something to think about.

The mystery. I was not quite sure where Heather was headed with this story, then I thought I knew, then I realized that she was pulling a switcher-roo. Good girl 🙂


Bottom line: Suspenseful at times, educational at others- Not A Sound offers much for readers!
