When I read in the book cover description that the protagonist is deaf, I was especially anxious to read it as I worked for 20 years with a man that was deaf and read lips. I thought that the author did a wonderful job that showed a lot of sensitivity when addressing the subjects of deafness and cancer treatment. The idea to have the protagonist be deaf was also something different and well carried out throughout the story. No matter what your final opinion of the book is...you’ll find that it’s hard not to root for Amelia and Stitch. They’re tough and engaging fighters. ( )

Not a Sound by Heather Gudenkauf  is a spellbinding mystery that is fast-paced and suspense-laden.

Two years after the hit and run accident that left her deaf, Amelia Winn is finally beginning to get her life back on track. Now a recovering alcoholic, she is separated from her husband Dr. David Winn and living in her family's isolated cabin near the river where she spends time kayaking or paddleboarding with her service dog, Stitch. On the day she is planning to go to her first job interview since losing her hearing, Amelia is stunned to discover the lifeless body of her former friend and fellow nurse, Gwen Locke, floating in the river. Amelia's suspicion that Gwen's death was no accident is quickly confirmed by her lifelong friend Detective Jake Schroeder. After she begins her new job working in a cancer treatment clinic for David's colleague, Dr. Joseph Huntley, she quickly settles into her new routine.  However, Amelia is quite troubled about Gwen's murder and despite Jake's pleas to stay out the investigation, she soon uncovers very disturbing information that might explain the murderer's motive for silencing her friend. Unsettled by her mounting suspicions, Amelia takes a huge risk that puts her in the crosshairs of a ruthless killer.

Before the accident, Amelia had everything: a satisfying and fulfilling job, a happy marriage and a fantastic relationship with her stepdaughter Nora.  After the accident, she pushes away all of her friends as she turns to alcohol to help cope with all of the changes in her life. After David forces her to leave their home, Jake is instrumental in getting her help for her drinking and convincing her to utilize the resources available for her deafness. Amelia is dedicated to her sobriety and she is working very hard to prove herself to David so she can maintain her relationship with Nora.

After discovering Gwen's body, Amelia is wracked with guilt for pushing her friend away and not responding to her efforts to resume their friendship. Although she knows she is taking a huge risk, she cannot stop searching for answers that will explain why someone would want to kill Gwen. When strange things begin occurring, Amelia thinks she knows who is responsible, but she cannot think of a reason why this person would do this to her. Pushing her suspicions to the back of her mind, Amelia continues digging into Gwen's life and she soon uncovers shocking information that provides her with the motive for the murder. Discovering why Gwen was murdered also leads Amelia to a stunning conclusion about who killed her but will she find irrefutable proof before it is too late?  

Not a Sound is an exceedingly well written whodunit that is full of unexpected twists and turns.  Amelia is a wonderful protagonist and it is very easy to root for her as she works hard to maintain her sobriety while trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She is truly regretful for letting her friendship with Gwen lapse and the resulting guilt and remorse provide the impetus for her investigation. The killer's identity and motive for the murder are brilliantly concealed through a series of clever misdirects and red herrings. Heather Gudenkauf brings the novel to an adrenaline fueled and action packed conclusion. ( )

Fast-paced, well-plotted thriller set in my home state. Amelia is a heroine with a laundry list of challenges, some by change and some of her own making, and experiencing the journey she takes to overcome them is a great ride. Will definitely read more by this author! ( )

A medical thriller about Amelia Winn who lost her hearing in a car accident. A few years later, her marriage in tatters, she stumbles upon the dead body of a fellow nurse / friend. With this discovery, Amelia's life is turned upside down.
Although I suspected the killer early on, due to one obvious clue, I didn't know why they murdered Gwen (the dead nurse). So, the story did hold my interest. I will read more by this author. ( )

I was lucky enough to win this book from Linda's Book Obsession. This is a new author to me.

I was reading another book at the time I won this, and I have a policy of not quitting a book I'm reading in favor of another. Until very recently, I would not quit a book at all, even if I hated it. So, I had to sit this book aside for awhile. I sat it close. Every now and then, I would pick it up, study the cover, read the blurbs, open it a tiny ways, and then put it back down. I finally jumped on it, out of order in my book plan. Wow, am I glad I did.

This book hit all the high spots for me. It has wonderful characters, including a furry one, and you understand them and want to be their friends immediately. There are some not so nice characters that you want to throttle, and some unknowns that you keep a close eye on. I learned some new factual things from reading this novel and that is such a plus for me. I love to learn new things. As the mystery unfolded, I attempted to solve it, because why else would you read a mystery if not to solve it, and I won't get into the number of times and ways in which I was incorrect. That alone was reason enough for me to want to run out and buy anything ever written by this author, but her writing ability would have been enough also.

Thank you, Heather Gudenkauf, for writing this lovely book, and thank you, Linda, for your contest. ( )
