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


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?

Excerpts-
  • From the cover 1

    Forecast: Cloudy with a chance of public humiliation

    There’s something especially lovely about an overcast day. Clouds dipped in ink, the sky ready to crack open. The air turning crisp and sweet. It’s magic, the way the world seems to pause for a few moments right before a downpour, and I can never get enough of that heady anticipation—­this sense that something extraordinary is about to happen.

    Sometimes I think I could live in those moments forever.

    “What was that?” my brother asks from the driver’s seat. It’s possible I’ve just let out a contented sigh. “Are you getting emotional about rain again?”

    I’ve been staring—­well, gazing—­out the window as the early morning sky surrenders to a drizzle. “No. That doesn’t sound like something I’d do.”

    Because it’s not just that I’m emotional about rain. It’s that rain means the thrill of tracking a cold front as it moves in from the Pacific. It means knee-­high boots and cable-­knit sweaters, and it’s simply a fact that those are the best clothes. I don’t make the rules.

    For so many people, weather is small talk, the thing you discuss when you’ve run out of conversation topics at a party or you’re on a first date with a guy who lives in his parents’ basement and thinks you two could be really happy down there together. Can you believe the weather we’re having? It’s a source of joy or frustration, but rarely anything in the middle.

    It’s never been small talk for me. Even if we’re due for six more months of gloom, I always miss it when summer comes.

    “You’re lucky I love you so much.” Alex rakes a hand through the sleep-­mussed red hair we almost share, only his is auburn and mine is a bright shock of ginger. “We’d just gotten past Orion’s fear of the dark, but now Cassie’s up at five if we’re lucky, four-­thirty if we’re not. No one’s getting any sleep in the Abrams-­Delgado house.”

    “I told you she’s a little meteorologist in training.” I adore my brother’s five-­year-­old twins, and not just because they’re named after constellations. “Don’t tell her we have to do our own hair and makeup. Ruins the illusion.”

    “She has to watch you every morning before preschool. Dinosaur-­shaped pancakes and Aunt Ari on the TV.”

    “The way God intended.”

    “I must not have been paying attention that day in Hebrew school.” Alex stifles a yawn as we jigsaw around Green Lake. He lives on the Eastside and works in South Seattle, so he picked me up in my tree-­lined Ravenna neighborhood and will drop me off at the station when we’re done.

    His clock is always six minutes fast because Alex loves the extra motivation in the mornings. Right now it reads 6:08—­usually late for me, but thanks to one of Torrance’s last-­minute schedule changes, I won’t be on camera until the afternoon. I might end up staying awake for a full twenty hours, but my body’s gotten used to me messing with its internal clock. Mostly.

    Still, imagining my tiny perfect niece transfixed by a weather report warms the very center of my heart.

    Once upon a time, I did the exact same thing.

    “Relax. It’s going to be great,” Alex says as I fidget with the zipper on my waterproof jacket, and then with the necklace buried in the fuzz of my sweater. I only roped...

    Co-workers scheme to get their bosses back together, falling for each other in the process. Ari Abrams dreamed of being a meteorologist as a child, when she escaped from her mother's stormy moods by watching Torrance Hale deliver the forecast on the evening news. Now 27, Ari covers the weather for local Seattle station KSEA 6, a dream come true. Having Torrance as her boss? The icing on the cake. At least, she thought it would be when she started the job three years ago. But KSEA 6 director Seth Hasegawa Hale is Torrance's ex-husband, and the two of them are at each other's throats so often that it's made the atmosphere at the station perpetually overcast, leaving Torrance far too distracted to spend much time mentoring Ari. After Torrance and Seth cause a particularly dramatic scene at the station's holiday party, Ari and sports reporter Russell Barringer bond over booze and their shared desire for better working conditions. They hatch a plan to turn their bosses' passion from hate back to love through forced proximity--couples' massages, dance classes, dinners--and in the process find their own friendship becoming much more. But Ari's desire to keep her depression diagnosis hidden, along with Russell's complicated home life, might put the kibosh on their burgeoning romance. The relationship between Ari and Russell is the main driver of the plot, but their connection is slightly underdeveloped. Their three years as co-workers are mostly unexplored, so the journey from friends to crushes to lovers feels rushed. But with a cast of interesting characters, sensitively explored topics of mental health and family dynamics, and enough steamy scenes to fog up the Seattle skyline, readers will no doubt be satisfied. The forecast predicts a 100% chance of heartfelt rom-com charm.

    Starred review from November 15, 2021
    Solomon’s wildly appealing sophomore rom-com (after The Ex Talk) takes readers behind the scenes of a drama-filled TV news station. KSEA 6 morning weather reporter Ari Abrams loves her job and has always looked up to Torrance Hale, the reigning queen of all things meteorological at KSEA 6. But recently, the nonstop hostility between Torrance and her ex-husband, the station’s news director, has made the workplace stressful. It’s particularly hard for Ari, who masks her clinical depression with relentless cheeriness at work—until one evening when she finally opens up and vents to the cute, chubby sports anchor, Russell Barringer. When Russell suggests he and Ari get their bosses back together to improve their dispositions, she thinks it’s worth a try and is glad to have made a friend who listens to her. Solomon handles Ari’s mental health and Russell’s body image issues with skill and sensitivity. Fans of Christina Lauren and Julie James will enjoy watching the duo’s matchmaking schemes as chemistry begins to sizzle between them—and, inevitably, the plotters are hoisted by their own petard. Solomon writes real characters with real problems without ever sacrificing fun. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary.

    Following her stellar debut, The Ex Talk (2021), Solomon delivers a second workplace romance set in Seattle. Neurodiverse Jewish American Ari Abrams is a meteorologist at KSEA-TV in love with her job. Though her twin's love sustained her while growing up, their father's abandonment and their mother's mental health challenges took a toll. Ari suffers from depression, but she is taking care of herself with medication and therapy. Jewish American Russell Barringer is a parent of a preteen and a sports journalist at KSEA-TV. He played competitive hockey in school, but teen parenthood dashed his dreams of playing in college. Reporting on sports is now his passion even as he suffers from body-image issues. Stress in the workplace caused by verbal warfare between the station's news director and star reporter-scientist cause Ari and Russell to put their heads together and try their hand at matchmaking. While stronger chemistry between the leading characters would've made the story more engaging, this is a promising second book.
