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.

Ok story. Narration was tough.

I listened to this book because it kept showing up in my “recommended” list for months. This was a good story; but the narration made it difficult for me to listen. The narrator did a fantastic job with the side character voices, but the main character voice was slow and too drawn out. The sex scenes seemed awkward in her voice.

Sweet, fun story

The narrator was very good. The story was romantic, fun, and endearing. I enjoyed the references to the characters Jewish heritage ( not over done and added depth to the characters) Depression rep and a realistic cinnamon roll hero, enjoyed Russ"s character very much. Some LGBTQ+ rep in the story as well. Overall I thought this was a solid contemporary romance

Unexpected character development

I enjoyed this is an "easy" read. Something I could have on in the background while working on other things and I didn't feel like I had to give it my full attention to follow along. I appreciated that the characters seemed relatable. The male did not have a perfect body or the stereotypical background of being a womanizer. He was a kind single parent who was working with his ex to co-parent and raise their daughter well. It was just normal. I also appreciated that the main character has relatable characteristics. An adult dealing with anxiety at work and at home. I think we should normalize that because so many people experience it. There were also some elements that made this book fun and silly. A classic chick-lit for those of us who like that sort of thing.

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.

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.
