“Can the Hooker Find Love?”
Five Star Review on Amazon By The Kindle Book Review
Judy was as an abused kid who did what she must to survive. She was taken in by a pimp, learned to work as a prostitute, found that she did it well, and prospered. She doesn’t have a heart of gold, but she’s not evil, either. She looks on what she does as her profession, and like those in other lines of work, she’s able to separate her business and personal lives.
Nevertheless, it seems rather improbable that a prostitute would meet and fall in love with the guy of her dreams, an attorney who is not a client. It seems even more improbable that they will fall in love.
In Tarnished Romance, though, the author makes it completely believable.
Then, an abusive client begins to stalk her, and she turns to the strong man for her former pimp to take care of it. The client ends up dead and in the aftermath, her secrets are revealed, and the man she loves walks away.
It’s an excellent story. It is well-written, moves well, and holds your interest. I found myself rooting for Judy, hoping that things would turn out well for her. This is the best of Sandi Whipple’s books to date and is highly recommended!

I received a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
About the Author
I was born in Illinois, (oh my goodness, was it really that many years ago?) and in my teen years I moved to California. I spent over 25 years as management in the food and beverage industry, and sometimes I wonder why I did that!
I’m a proud Veteran of the United States Army and a true ‘Patriot’ of our beloved country.
I’d like to tell you I’m flawless, but you’d know right away it was a lie. Someone once told me I could hide most of my flaws with the help of glue, paper clips, duct tape, and of course a smile! But I’m just a non-award winning, non-bestselling, self-published author who has written four and a half romance novels.
More information about me and my upcoming fifth novel, scheduled for release in late summer of 2016, can be found on my website www.sandikwhipple.com.
