Publisher's Summary

Life went terribly wrong for Addie Bates in San Diego, and she's been running from dark memories ever since. For 15 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 devastating consequences of a single impulsive act.

    What disappointed you about Whistling Women?

    The characters were the most disappointing aspect of this book. I felt like I was reading a re-enactment of a bad junior high school play. All of the characters came across the stage without any grace and without the audience knowing anything about them, saying the lines you knew they were going to say. They were all so two dimensional, trite, and unoriginal.


    What could Kelly Romo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    An original story, characters, and ending would have been great for this book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicol Zanzarella’s performances?

    On top of an already cheesy story, characters, and plot, the narrator made this even more cheesy (didn't know it was possible) and was excruciating to listen to.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Whistling Women?

    The whole angle of the nudist colony was ridiculous and ultimately unimportant to story, it was only there to try to make it original on the facade.
