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?

Critic Reviews

"That feeling you get when you curl up on the couch on a rainy Saturday, with a great book in one hand and a spiked hot chocolate in the other: that's the feeling you get when you read Weather Girl. This book is cozy, comforting, thought provoking, and it'll make you feel warm from the inside out." (Jasmine Guillory, New York Times best-selling author of While We Were Dating)

“A sharp, witty romance full of heart. Rachel's writing zips off the page. As with The Ex Talk, she has created truly original, well-rounded characters you will love. A sexy storm of a book.” (Sophie Cousens, New York Times best-selling author of This Time Next Year)

“A delightful romance. Perfect for rainy days and sunny days and everything in between.” (Helen Hoang, New York Times best-selling author of The Heart Principle)

What a delight!

Ari Abrams thought it was a dream come true when she was hired as a TV weatherwoman at KSEA to work alongside her idol, Torrance Hale, the famous Seattle weather broadcaster. Ari’s loved the weather even since she can remember but working with Torrance has been less than ideal. Instead of getting the mentoring she wanted, Torrance is too caught up bickering with her ex-husband, Seth Hale, one of the manager’s at KSEA.

However, at Christmas/holiday party, Ari witnesses a moment of longing between Torrance and Seth before it all goes to hell. When their fighting reaches a crescendo, Ari teams up with sportscaster, Russell Barringer to help get Torrance and Seth back together again hoping to eliminate the toxic work environment the Hale’s have created.

Soon Ari and Russell are meeting up, making plans, and getting closer. Ari’s always found Russell attractive, but she’s surprised how easy it is to confide in him and just be herself. Struggling with depression it’s not something Ari’s had an easy time of in the past.

Ari was such sweet, spunky, and likable character! Her struggles with depression felt real and honest. Being raised by a mother who didn’t want to acknowledge her own depression, at the detriment of her kids and relationships, made Ari hesitant to open up about her condition. But with Russell Ari didn’t feel like she always had to be the bright and shiny version of herself.

I adored Russell, too! He was a sweetheart, but he had his own issues, as most of us do. I loved that they helped each other overcome some of the self-doubts and insecurities that came with each their histories.

As a side point, I’m a little obsessed with the weather, and like Ari, I’m gleeful when it rains. I find the clouds and rain mesmerizing, so I loved all the weather talk, especially being set in Seattle where it rains a bunch. I guess that comes from living in Southern California where rain is a rarity! I’ve been told I wouldn’t feel the same way if I actually lived in the Pacific Northwest, but I’ll never believe it, lol!

Weather Girl was such a delightful story that filled me with joy! The romance was slow burn and with oodles of chemistry, but it also felt true to life. Neither Ari or Russell was portrayed as perfect, physically, or otherwise and it made their romance more relatable.

This is the second Rachel Lynn Solomon story I’ve read and loved! I look forward to whatever she comes up with next!

I enjoyed Sarah Mollo-Christensen’s performance. She did great with both female and male voices. I listened at 1.6-1.7x normal speed.

Perfection

Honestly, you should just read it. Don’t read the description. Just listen to the book. It is perfect. Great narrator. Great characters.

Meh

If you read the description you would assume there would be times they would scheme and come up with plans but it just happens and they don’t explain how they came up with the scheme. Also it’s mostly just about her job and how she wishes her mother loves her and 2 1/2 nsfw scenes. Narrator was great but just expected so much more from the book.

Not for me

I wanted to love this...but I ended up returning. I kept waiting for it to get better but it just didn't work for me. The story was bland and the characters had little-to-no chemistry. I couldn't connect with anything in this book. I LOVED "The Ex Talk" and was hoping for another smash but this one wasn't for me. Sidebar: I know everyone is different but as someone who has struggled with depression myself, I just found the way that the main character deals with hers to be so annoying. I'm sure some people will find it something to connect over but for me it wasn't it! Also - the "annoying" may be that the narrator made her sound whiny.

Weather Girl

This was such a heartwarming novel.
The narrator was wonderful… I felt the emotional ups and downs in her voice. Plenty of laugh out louds… the sexual scenes were a bit too much but necessary to show the true inner character of each of them.

Great story....with a purpose

At first the reader drove me nuts with the sing-song reading. But either I became used to it or it started to.work. The story was good, I really enjoy this author. But I also appreciated that it had a subject on mental health positively and healthily. Thank you!

DNF'ed at 40%

The main character is the most worthless lead in any book I've ever read. About as mature as a 15 year old, while actually being 27. No chemistry between the love interest and Ari. The love interest had like... no personality other than being a kind person.

Great book, not my favorite narrator!

Weather Girl is basically a parent trap inside a parent trap! I decided to give Weather Girl a read because my booksta friend put out a call for anyone who might be interested in joining a reading club for it & I wanted to try a book outside my usual genre. I do read some romance, but literally had only read Julia Quinn period romances. So I was ready to try something modern. On top of being a romcom, Weather Girl deals a lot with mental health, & I’m a huge fan of spreading awareness & reading stories of those who deal with any mental health struggle–although usually in fantasy format, so think ACOSF or Girls of Paper & Fire/Girls of Storm & Shadow.

The only two negatives I will attribute to Weather Girl are the narrator of the audiobook & the push on Ari’s mother to take prescriptions for her depression. I strongly believe there are prescriptions that help people! I wholeheartedly support anyone who might need them. My issue was that Ari’s push on her mother felt a little too strong. Ari begins the story as someone who’s been taking antidepressants for years & they really work for her, but she held a lot of resentment toward her mom for not getting help & not trying prescriptions. Ari’s mother had an outdated opinion of antidepressants & because of her opinion she was resistant to trying any. I totally vibed with the mom-resentment & fraught childhood due to mom’s issues, so I agree with Ari that her mom needed help, & I’m glad that when Ari’s mom did find help, she had a support group of doctors who were able to recommend prescriptions & closely monitor her reactions & side effects. So yay, drugs worked for her! But I felt like before this, Ari judged her mom & pressured her to take prescriptions when her mom wasn’t ready.

Back to my vibe: for anyone, especially women, who has/had a difficult relationship with your mom, although this story is a romcom, there’s a strong mom/daughter subplot that hit really close to home for me.

On to the audiobook narrator: she sounded like a news anchor delivering lines with pauses & emphases in odd places. This caused the story to sound more like a drama than a romcom, so I would recommend a visual read, unless narrators don’t bother you as much as they can bother me!

I’m marking this book as a 5 star read because there were zero plot holes & very little issues with character development; although I did feel like Javier could have used some more development as a side character, he did kind of feel like a cardboard placeholder character. As an atheist who has struggled with mental health & the mental health of those around me, I think this is the perfect rom-com to bring light to mental health & Judaism.

Workplace Conspirators Fall in Love

One liner: A steamy contemporary romance set in the workplace. Two junior on-air staff conspire to reconnect the divorced on-air leads.

Although Ari and Russell never intended to fall in love while executing their scheme (they just wanted a better work environment!), the sparks fly as they spend more time together. This book looks at mental health issues and how they can impact relationships and the workplace.

Nowhere near as good as Ex-Talk

I had high hopes after the Ex-Talk, but this story was not very interesting—except for the depression education, which I appreciated. Narrator never varied her delivery either.

So good that I am going to listen to it again immediately.

This might be the perfect book. The most honest representation of what living with depression feels like, what it looks like and how hard it can be to share that with someone. It is brutally honest but also hopeful, a reminder that you likely won’t ever be cured and there is no magic fix but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a full and beautiful life. Just as you are. Also Russ….he is the most absolutely perfect book boyfriend and I think I might be in love. I cannot recommend this book enough. I will be buying the hard copy as well.

So so adorable

An endearing cast of characters with a light exploration of mental health. the Sex scenes are realistic and it's refreshing to see the 'clunkiness' and nerves of first times in this genre. A rainy day listen to keep you warm and cozy.
