When I say the word Whisterpoop, what comes to mind? Is it a joke or a made-up word? It sure sounds like one, but it actually is quite real. To put it simply, whisterpoop is British slang for "a slight smack upside the head" or realization, which is highly fitting when it comes to the novel Whisterpoop by R. J. Corgan. This is the author's first romantic comedy, and it certainly brings in the laughs. Protagonist Karen Whittington has just turned fifty. She feels older with each passing day, yet in her heart she still is young. As a librarian it is easy to get lost in books, sweeping romances especially, but when it comes to her real life, love is a bit lacking. She claims her husband is dead, but the truth may be that he's more alive than she is. Karen is on a mission to turn up the heat, somehow and someway. Can she do it with just her cat and an aging body? Time to find out.

I was pleasantly surprised when I began reading Whisterpoop. It had an interesting title, to say the least, and Karen was a relatable central figure. Even though I’m not near the age of fifty, there are some things I couldn’t but help think: amen, sister. Most of us women like to get lost in romance novels, and we do like to feel all the feels, which this novel delivers. Plus, Karen was a hoot. The humor crafted by author R. J. Corgan was spot on, but the work also carried real emotions. You didn’t just get the laughter, but real-world problems too, and that made Whisterpoop an even more enjoyable read.
