Blog Tour: Whistling Women by Kelly Romo

Author: Kelly Romo
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Date of publication:

A buried secret keeps two sisters apart.

Life went terribly wrong for Addie Bates in San Diego, and she’s been running from those memories ever since. For fifteen years, the Sleepy Valley Nudist Colony has provided a safe haven for Addie to hide from the crime she committed. But when the residents pack up to go on exhibit at the 1935 world’s fair in San Diego, Addie returns and must face the thrilling yet terrifying prospect of reuniting with her estranged sister, Wavey.

Addie isn’t the only one interested in a reunion. When her niece, Rumor, discovers she has an aunt, Rumor is determined to bring her family together. But it’s not so easy when the women are forced to confront family secrets, past and present.

Set against the backdrop of the 1935 world’s fair, Whistling Women explores the complex relationships between sisters, the sacrifices required to protect family, and the lasting consequences of a single impulsive act.

Whistling Women looked to be an enjoyable book about family dynamics.  It's pretty long and normally I don't mind that.  But when I book is long and doesn't suck me right in, that is when I have a problem.  I'm going to chalk this one up as not for me.  I found myself putting it down several times and that is never a good sign.  I just couldn't get into the story.  By the time I got to about 30%, I no longer cared about the characters.  I know other people loved this book, so give it a try and see for yourself.
