I just finished up the audio book Not a Sound: A Thriller by Heather Gudenkauf. My online library got in a lot of new audio books and I put several on my holds list. It seems many of them are mystery or thrillers. Many have been becoming available so lately many of the books I’ve been listening to are thrillers or mysteries. This one is classified as a thriller.
I really liked this book. The main character is deaf and has a support dog. I loved the dog element of the story. I can’t say I was surprised about the outcome and how the story was laid out but I can say that it was still a very good listen. Make sure you have some time if you pick this book up as you’ll be wanting to find out what happens next.
Here’s what Amazon had to say:“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.”
Amazon readers gave the book 4.3 stars. I would totally agree. It really kept my attention. I’m off to put myself on the hold list for a couple other of her books. I’m hoping my on line library has them or I just might have to burn an Audible credit.
If you like the dog aspect, maybe you’d enjoy the Spencer Quinn mysteries-solved from the dog’s perspective. Different take on mysteries, obviously not without humor! If I remember correctly, the first one was called Dog On It. They’ve been around for a while, so they shouldn’t be on a wait list–IF they are still in the online library!
Thanks for all the reviews i have added to my list on audible. I love audible i get my steps in or sew while reading or listening to great books.. Have you read small great things..jodi picoult..best book i have read/listened to in a very long time
I actually know Heather – her parents go to my church and are good friends of my parents. She’s a wonderful person! This one is in my audible queue as well, so you’ve inspired me to go download it. I finished my last audible book yesterday, so good timing!
