I received a gifted galley of WEATHER GIRL by Rachel Lynn Solomon for an honest review. Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read and review!
Publication Date: 1/11/2022
WEATHER GIRL follows Ari Abrams, an up and coming meteorologist working for her idol who should be having the time of her life, but things at work aren’t all she always hoped it would be. Her boss is constantly butting heads with her ex-husband making the staff who work for both increasingly uncomfortable. Add in the fact that her boss barely knows Ari is alive and things have got to change.
After an ill fated Christmas party (even moreso given that Ari is Jewish), Ari and her work friend Russell conspire to make the workplace a happier place by parent trapping their bosses. Though their relationship has generally consisted of hellos and quick comments in the break room, soon a solid friendship is forming with the potential for more.
I really thought this was a fun read! I enjoyed the slow burn romance that developed between Ari and Russell with a solid friendship forming between them. The side characters were a lot of fun too! Each of the main leads had fantastic family members in their corners who were great to read about.
One thing that I especially appreciated in this book was the mental health rep. The author gives us a leading lady who deals with depression. She portrays a leading lady who understands her mental health and the ways it impacts her life and her relationships. It shows appropriate use of medications and therapy and the struggles that still exist even when doing all the right things. I loved seeing this representation on the page!
I definitely recommend you add WEATHER GIRL to your TBR! It is out today!
