Today’s First Line Friday is the newest book from my favorite author Heather Gudenkauf!! This one was released last year. I unfortunately have not been able to read it yet. Much like the author and protagonist in this novel, I have some hearing issues, so I really look forward to this one! There are not many books out there that deal with disabilities. We need more of them!
I find her sitting all by herself in the emergency waiting room, her lovely features distorted from the swelling and bruising.
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?
