Review| Weather Girl – Rachel Lynn Solomon

Rachel Lynn Solomon is one of my favorite authors and I was really excited when I heard about Weather Girl. I was even happier when I got approved for an e-arc on Edelweiss. Weather Girl released on January 11th and it’s definitely time for me to be sharing my review. Keep on reading to find out more about this book and what I thought!

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?

A TV meteorologist and a sports reporter scheme to reunite their divorced bosses with unforecasted results in this charming romantic comedy from the author of The Ex Talk.


Weather Girl sucked me in from the start and when I read the last page I couldn’t believe it was over. This author’s writing makes the book so easy to read and very enjoyable. I had a smile on my face most of this book and there were quite a few heartwarming moments as well. Weather Girl was a good book to start off the year with!

Ari our main character has always loved the weather and it’s clear that she’s very passionate. I loved the moments she got so excited talking about how weather worked or why she loved it so much. It’s always interesting when a character is really passionate. She hasn’t always had the best luck in love and her childhood has definitely influenced that. Her mother dealt with depression, but didn’t seek treatment. Ari, who also is struggling with depression herself, thinks that she can’t show this side of herself to the men in her life. Ari really needed someone to love her for her. Everything included.

“What I’m realizing,” I continue, “is that I like myself the most when I’m around you. And I think it’s because I’m the most honest version of myself. I don’t have to try as hard, and I don’t have to hide. I can just . . . be.”

Russell was a great addition to this book. A lot of the times romances have males that all look like models and are gorgeous. That wasn’t the case with Russell. His body isn’t perfect and Ari ended up falling for who he was anyways. I loved seeing this in a romance. Russell’s story was also really interesting. His experience with fatherhood and him now trying to see himself as more than a father again. Russell’s love and feelings were very genuine. I really would’ve loved at least a few chapters from his POV. For me that would’ve made this story complete.

“Even if we’re going through darkness, I know we’ll always find our way back to each other.”

Ari and Russell growing close was so interesting to read about. It wasn’t something that just happened, but slowly did. I loved them talking, getting closer, dating, and even reading Ari’s doubts about what a serious relationship would mean. Weather Girl definitely got a bit steamier than I was expecting, but in such a good way. I loved how they talked about intimacy and being together.

Besides the romance we have the plot line of Ari and Russell bringing their bosses together. Torrance and Seth were interesting side characters and they definitely had me laughing at times. The schemes to get them closer were a lot of fun to read about. Talking about side characters I loved Ari’s brother and the story line with their mother. Not everything was settled at the end, but it was a work in progress. This definitely felt more realistic.

All in all, Weather Girl was such a good book. I loved how everything came together and how the author dealt with all of the more serious subjects in this book. Rachel Lynn Solomon definitely proved once again why she’s one of my favorite authors.


Weather Girl was another amazing book by this author and I’m excited that she has a new YA release later this year (See You Yesterday). I’ll definitely be reading that one! Have you read anything by this author? What did you think? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
