Description

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.

  • (4/5)
    Overall I liked the book and would recommend it. There were a few places I thought were the typical “girl tries to do everything on her own” but I did like it. I think the narrator did a great job. Sometimes good narrators can make a mundane book better while other times bad narrators can make a great book awful. In audiobooks, a great narrator is a must!

    After a string of duds, finally a great book! It has an interesting and unique plot line; it hooked me from the start and I finished it in one day. Give it a go!
  • (5/5)
    I thought the book was great. From beginning to end you think you've guessed what kind of a person could kill this way. Then it kept you guessing the guilty. It was well written about a woman that could not hear. I still wonder who caused her to lose her hearing.
  • (5/5)
    I truly enjoyed the narrator as she beautifully told this
  • (4/5)
    Finished this bad boy last night on my (very cold) walk.
    I really enjoyed it, but I’m not quite sure how to rate it yet. I do have to say the ending pleased my wicked little soul, and normally these types of endings make me angry. ••
    Amelia made me so angry in the middle of the book, but I feel like her behavior was justified in the end. I still wanted to punch her though ??‍♀️
    ••
    What I loved about this book is the awareness it brings to the deaf community and the struggles they may face, at least from one POV. I also really enjoyed the medical twist this story takes. Though this may not be super rare in novels, I think Heather touched on an important aspect here.
    ••
    I’m still adjusting to this whole audiobook business, and I’m wondering if I would have felt different if I’d read it in print. ?
  • (2/5)
    A story with good possibilities, but just could have been executed better. It was rather slow and predictable, but I will give kudos for making a thriller with a main character that was deaf. That could not have been easy to write.
  • (5/5)
    Absolutely brilliant! I am so glad Stitch made it. Kept me riveted until the end and I’m sad it’s finished.
  • (5/5)
    Great book, captivating the whole book.
    The reader made listening that much better
  • (5/5)
    Very good book, keeping you interested in the story throughout.
  • (4/5)
    Not too violent or gory, but solid easy read. Won’t give you nightmares. I enjoyed this book mostly because of the perspective of the main character. Good for maybe a younger-ish audience, or someone maybe a bit more faint of heart. Was more mystery less murder if that makes sense
  • (2/5)
    The narrator was clear and expressive but the story was just too long and meandering. Also, the lead character was not the most likeable and her decisions were often silly. To be fair, the writing is wonderful but it seems like the book couldn't decide between being a romance novel or a thriller. It's a bit jarring to read about a murder scene and then in the same breath hear the narrator wax eloquent about Jake. I couldn't take it seriously. I wish some of the plot points were developed a more. Interesting premise though.
  • (5/5)
    Interesting, entertaining and suspenseful! Enjoyed the medical references.

    As a hard of hearing individual, it is so great to find a book with a d/Deaf main character!! I really found myself rooting for Amelia not only with the case but with her life. The combination of a compelling main character and interesting mystery made this book a step above. The narrator breathes life into the story in a way not all can. Highly recommend!!
