Not A Sound by 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?

My Thoughts
I've had this book sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time and I saw it and read it in two days!  I thought the story line was very intriguing and was taken in a different direction than I was expecting and it was great!  I love a book that can draw me in and surprise me.
Amelia has not had the easiest life the last few years and it all came about when she was involved in an accident and lost her hearing.  She lost her world once her hearing was gone - her husband, her step-daughter, her job, everything.  Drinking became her best friend and that has been a hard demon to conquer.  She is putting her best foot forward but it's not easy.
Then one day she comes across something in the water while she's paddle boarding with her hearing dog Stich, a dead body.  And it's her friend...
She called the police and then she found herself more and more involved - her house was broken into, and she was followed to name just a few.
Will she make it out of this nightmare alive?

Drink Selection
It's time for a nice cocktail on this chilly day - Hot Buttered Rum - Delish!

A good suspense read with a twist from beginning to end, 4 wine glasses for sure!
