About the book:
A TV meteorologist and a sports reporter scheme to reunite their divorced bosses with unforecasted results in this electrifying romance from the author of The Ex Talk.
Ari Abrams has always been fascinated by the weather, and she loves almost everything about her job as a TV meteorologist. Her boss, legendary Seattle weatherwoman Torrance Hale, is too distracted by her tempestuous relationship with her ex-husband, the station’s news director, to give Ari the mentorship she wants. Ari, who runs on sunshine and optimism, is at her wits’ end. The only person who seems to understand how she feels is sweet but reserved sports reporter Russell Barringer.
In the aftermath of a disastrous holiday party, Ari and Russell decide to team up to solve their bosses’ relationship issues. Between secret gifts and double dates, they start nudging their bosses back together. But their well-meaning meddling backfires when the real chemistry builds between Ari and Russell.
Working closely with Russell means allowing him to get to know parts of herself that Ari keeps hidden from everyone. Will he be able to embrace her dark clouds as well as her clear skies?
Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon is a contemporary romance novel. The story in this one does a dance on the border between lighthearted fun and having a more serious side to it with the main character dealing with depression.
Ari Abrams is working in her dream job as a TV meteorologist after always being fascinated by weather. The dream job comes with some obstacles to it being perfect though with Ari’s bosses being a divorced couple always bickering with one another putting a damper on the workplace.
One night Ari finds herself chatting with Russell Barringer, a sports reporter at the station. Russell has also noticed the atmosphere at work and the two of them come up with a plan to push their bosses together thinking unresolved feelings are still there. Of course this means Ari and Russell will have to spend a lot of time together in order to “Parent Trap” their bosses.
Weather Girl by Rachel Lynn Solomon was such a delightful story that I couldn’t help but get totally caught up inside. The story was such a cute one with the characters trying to set up their bosses but Ari felt much more like a real person with having depression she was dealing with. I didn’t think the two sides of this would mix well but I was wrong as the book did still have that lighthearted fun that you would expect from a rom-com type of read but also with a more realistic twist that you don’t normally find and I was definitely a fan.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
