      Yay My first thriller featuring a deaf female I have developed a craving for diverse characters in my mystery thrillers and this one was pure gold While the plot itself was fairly unique, I also found myself drawn to the careful details included surrounding the hearing impaired, and the medical field in general I learned from the author s note that she herself is hearing impaired, something I wasn t aware of before, and it brought Amelia s character to life so than it could have from the voice [...]

      Not a Sound by Heather Gudenkauf is a 2017 Park Row Books publication This novel delves deeper than the taut, suspenseful elements, touching upon some timely issues, while creating a sympathetic character, in Amelia Winn, that is at once vulnerable, but whose resilience is inspiring.Amelia Winn is an RN, happily married, with a step daughter she adores, when her life changes on a dime She is left profoundly deaf after a horrific car crash Her equilibrium is knocked out of whack in ways than one [...]

      mrsbbookreviews.wordpressI selected Heather Gudenkauf s latest based on an article I read that was featured in the highly regarded Washington Post stating this novel was a thriller worth staying up all night to finish Going on this strong recommendation and my enjoyment of Gudenkauf s 2016 release, Missing Pieces, I was all set to be thoroughly entertained by Not A Sound.Not A Sound deviates somewhat from a traditional thriller The heroine is a hearing impaired, former nurse, named Amelia Winn A [...]

      2.75 starsI liked certain aspects of this story a flawed heroine with a disability, an intriguing puzzle to solve, interesting tidbits about the operation of hearing impaired devices, and a cute but versatile dog thrown into the mix Beyond that, this story was just okay It wasn t very thrilling or exciting and the narrator was slightly irritating because she jumped to conclusions about everything and assumed that everything was about her Overall, the characters didn t hold my interest as strongl [...]

      4.5 stars From the moment I began reading Not A Sound I was fully into it Heather Gudenkauf pulled me in with her opening scene, and her writing had me imagining clearly the scenes she was setting The story is told from the viewpoint of Amelia, who is deaf after an accident that was appalling It was really interesting to be drawn into a deaf person s world, to find out in a new way what they miss out on I never thought about them not being able to differentiate emotions because they can t hear t [...]

      This book was a great suspenseful book that hooked me from the very beginning Heather Gudenkauf is one author I will be reading from The main character, Amelia, is deaf in this book and after reading the book, I see that the author is also hearing impaired so maybe that was why the book was so well written I loved her writing style and I highly recommend this book to those who want a thriller.

      Jennifer Masterson, Melissa, and Diane S all wrote different but great reviews of this title.I didn t enjoy it as much as they did I found the mystery not very mystifying, some incompatible aspects in the story, and found some of Amelia s actions to be somewhat dumbass unreasoned e.g why don t I risk my life because being embarassed if the police don t believe me would be too horrible, and taking a chance on death a much better choice I thought the author did a great job making me feel the absol [...]
