Weather Girl

Ari Abrams is living her dream. Since she was a child she was obsessed with the weather she wanted to be a meteorologist and now she is one. But her life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, because Ari has depression, but only the people close to her know about this. Her boss Torrance is constantly fighting with her ex-husband Seth, who is the news director at the station. Their fight is now affecting everyone else at work, so Ari and Russell (sports reporter) make a plan to bring back them together because they think and feel Torrance and Seth still have feelings for each other, even though they are fighting. But the more time Ari and Russell the closer they become. 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?


Just like the main character, I find the weather very interesting. Not interested enough to become a meteorologist, but I do enjoy thunderstorms, especially because they are so rare in the area I live in.
So when I picked this book, I thought I would enjoy it. I’ve also read ‘Ex-talk’ by Rachel Lynn Solomon and I really liked that one, so I wanted to read one of her other books as well.

I prefer to start with the things I liked about this book. I liked that each chapter has a short description but the author wrote it as a weather forecast. I thought that was pretty cool and funny. Although the description also gave away what was going to happen in that chapter, I still liked it. The characters were likable enough and probably might be relatable to many people who have depression or know people who have depression. I think Russell is my favorite character in this book because he really cares about his daughter and she is the most important thing in his life. He was a very likable person.

I don’t think there is one specific thing I did not like about this book, but somehow it didn’t make screams of happiness or sadness when they broke up. I am a very sensitive reader. When a couple in a book breaks up, I feel the heartbreak. And when they fall in love, it makes me happy and excited. Some books give me all of those feelings and this book didn’t. Which is pretty interesting though. I realize that a few of my favorite books made me feel things, but there were still things I didn’t like about those books. But this time (with this book) I liked this book and there wasn’t anything that I hated, but somehow it is still not my favorite book. I am weird and complicated, I think.

Maybe it is just simple her writing style, although I don’t think it was bad. Or maybe the topic was just heavy (depression). I just don’t know why this book isn’t a favorite. It has all of the ingredients (single dad trope, weather, romance).
So overall this book was just an okay book for me. I didn’t hate it but it isn’t my favorite either. But I am still happy I read it because it was on my TBR list for such a long time now.
