Jack Bailey lost his parents to influenza and now hopes to save the family novelty shop by advertising on the radio, a medium barely more than a novelty, itself. His nights are spent in a careless and debauched romp through the gayer sections of Manhattan.
When these two men cross paths, despite a world of differences separating them, their attraction cannot be denied. Sutton finds himself drawn to the piano, playing for Jack. But can his music heal them both, or will sudden prosperity jeopardize their chance at love?

Tamara Allen is one of the best writers of historical romance in my opinion. I have read everything she has written. The fact that she writes mm historical romance is just a bonus. She can weave a story like not many can. Her characters are rich with depth and she grabs a reader from the beginning and holds them enthralled in the romance she weaves between men when such a relationship was illegal. I always equate reading one of her novels like rich hot chocolate while curled up by a fire on a snowy winter’s day. Cliché yes, but that is how they make me feel. Her books are not erotica, as any sex is off page, but are romance in the best way.
This book is one of my favorites. My favorite is Downtime (which is a time travel/Jack the Ripper thriller); but this is a VERY close second. This is the story of Jack and Sutton, two very different men who have returned from WWI with PTSD and are trying to make it during the Depression. They find each other. Jack is a dreamer and visionary with a plan to “make it” by means of a new invention called the “radio.” Sutton comes from a very rich family, but has shunned it all to try and make it on his own in New York after the man he thought he loved threw him under the bus to save himself. There are bad guys and a wonderful supportive cast around these men. It is a wonderful ride and the narrator is fantastic. He really brings these men to life and his voice is intoxicating. Worth two credits!

Such a well developed plot and characters! Whistling offers a whole spectrum of emotions that will keep you hooked until the end. The romance was so sweet & so beautifully written that I felt I was reminded of 30s and 40s movies. The extra characters were engaging and the narration perfect.
