Synopsis:

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?

Review

“That’s the thing about depression. You can know it’s there, know it’s part of you, but you can go ages without seeing it. It lives with you, an invisible roommate.”

Do you ever read a book and not feel much for the characters themselves but appreciate the message in the story?

That’s me, with the Weather Girl. I didn’t feel much for the characters, but the story’s underlying message about mental health is what made the book for me. The main character, Ari Abrams, is so many people who struggle with depression and don’t let the world know what’s going on beneath the surface.

In the author’s note, Rachel Lynn Solomon said that Weather Girl was a deeply personal story for her, and I can see that after finishing the story.

🧠 Mental Health awareness
✡️ Jewish Representation
🌩🏈 Unique Rom-Com (my first office romance?)
🥴 Open Door Romance
💙 Love for all body types

I usually try to compare the book I’m reviewing to a book I’ve already read, but Weather Girl is a unique one.
