This page-turner was unputtdownable. When the deaf protagonist finds the body of an old friend in the river, her life as a former nurse, current unemployed alcoholic becomes more complicated than she could have imagined, and she learns that she‘s even stronger than she ever thought possible.
A picture of my mom (pictured second from left) and her siblings and their mother. New blog post up about how much I identified with Not a Sound and how these three people inspire me daily. I would love for you guys to check it out! Link is in the bio!!
I have just finished reading this book at the weekend and all i can say is omG! This was such a great read with many surprising twists and a fantastic ending! Really loved this book, i have read the other books this author has written and loved them all though i think this is going to be my favourite. Would recommend to any looking at this book or even this author. She does not disappoint!
Yay for Iowa authors!!!! This is an excellent mystery/thriller. A tragic accident leaves nurse Amelia deaf. Depression and drinking estrange her from her husband and step-daughter. When she discovers the body of a woman who used to be a good friend, Amelia stops at nothing to find the killer. But who is trying to stop Amelia? This is a great page turner!!!

I like anything that Heather Gudenkauf writes! Her book about the social worker is still my favorite of hers but this one was pretty darned good! I also like the fact that the heroine is deaf, as we so rarely see heroines with a hearing disability.
Heather Gudenkauf is from my home state. Iowa!!!! I've read all of her books and love them. This one did not disappoint. Hopefully I will get to see her at one of her book signings in the area. Way to represent our Hawkeyes!!!🏈🏀🏉
Great thriller!! I could not put it down. I read it in 2 sittings because it was so intriguing.
A good book for what it is: a plot-driven mystery that kept me engaged. I'd have liked to see more development of the characters, especially the late- deafened protagonist, but it was a page-turner and good choice for me during this busy time (end of school, parents coming to visit soon).
The opening pages sucked me in and kept me reading quickly. I finished the book in two sittings.
Amelia is an ER nurse surrounded by a constant
cacophony of sounds and then in a violent instant, she's enveloped in silence.
Amelia made some bad choices trying to deal with the aftermath of this incident that took her hearing. She ended up losing her marriage, her profession, and her relationship with her daughter. Continued below 👇🏻
Currently reading this mystery/thriller ARC I got a few months ago from a local indie. Good description of terminology here. Picked it up b/c main character is deaf. I am too, but more like big D. Interestingly, author is deaf herself and her website describes her as hearing-impaired. Maybe that description was penned before this book was. This just came out last month. So far so good although it's a departure from what I usually read.
I love being the first person to read a brand new book from the library! She's a favorite author of mine and I have been waiting for this one.
I promise to take good care of it. ❤️📚
So, today I took a walk by the river, I set up a book post and snapped my shot. When I went to grab my book, I freaked out to see a head of a snake beside it! 😳😬🐍
Got this ARC novel (free) from the bookstore today. Whenever I see titles like this, or w/ "Silent" or "Silence" in it, I always suspect it'll be about deafness. Yep, MC is late-deafened. Pub date May 2017. Anyone read this yet? I went there to get some bookish goodies to fill out my Cupid package (and s/he will now have one extra book, picked up another that I think s/he might like ?). Mailing #cupidgoespostal package & pic, both tomorrow!?
