Weather Girl – a Seattle newsroom is the setting for this charming romantic comedy.
After reading a slew of books with serial killers, missing women and mind-bending twists and turns, it was time for a change of pace. Weather Girl, with its cute book cover, appears at first to be a standard rom-com. But I'm happy to report that it’s more than that.
Ari Abrams is the morning weather reporter for Seattle’s KSEA. She works for her idol, Torrance Hale, the head meteorologist, who is also the ex-wife of Seth, the station’s news director. The former couple’s constant battling has created a toxic work environment. After a holiday office party filled with a bit too much celebrating, Ari teams up with sports reporter Russell Barringer to try and get the couple back together as they believe that Torrance and Seth are still madly in love with one another. As they scheme to get their bosses to reunite, Ari and Russell start to get close. And well, you can guess the rest. (This is a romance book, so you know what to expect.) But what you might not expect is the addition of some real life issues such as depression and mental health (Ari), weight and body image (Russell) and other areas that make Rachel Lynn Solomon’s enjoyable book stronger than many others in the genre.
It left me smiling. Mission accomplished.
