F Is For Forecast

Jennifer reviews Jane Tara’s book...

Okay, I’m cheating a little, but I’ve been dying to review this book and I’m using the title rather than the author so I can do it now.

Jane Tara’s book, Forecast was such a fun book to read. It’s a quirky contemporary romance where the heroine is a psychic who an accurately predict the weather (down the specific address, by the way), and the hero is a professional weatherman who is sidelined by an injury. The network hires the heroine and, well, I’ll leave it to you to read the rest. Here’s the blurb:

The Shakespeare women were what the locals of Greenwich Village called "gifted."

They did tarot readings and cast spells from their infamous shop Second Site. And each morning, Rowie would perform her popular weather prediction on the pavement outside.

Sure, Rowie's predictions were helpful for forecasting the weather, but when it came to love, her abilities were more like a curse. Why bother dating a guy if you knew at the first kiss he was destined for someone else? And how would she ever meet anyone while she was stuck working at the family shop?

Rowie was resigned to never finding love. Until Drew Henderson, New York's hottest weatherman is injured and the network decides to replace him with a gimmick—the Psychic Weatherwoman.

The very scientific Drew is furious. The witch might light up the TV screen. But how dare the network make a mockery of meteorology.

Now Rowie's overbearing grandmother Gwendolyn won't talk to her. Sixteen generations of Shakespeare women have worked in the family business. How dare she make a mockery of her gift.

But Rowie loves her new job, and won't let anyone ruin it. Until the day Drew Henderson kisses her, and she can't predict his future. In fact she can't predict anything.

I had so much fun reading about these people, I wanted to move in with them. The book is fast-paced and is the first in the Shakespeare Sisters series—I can’t wait to read the rest of them!
