In this debut novel, Rowie Shakespeare, a beautiful redheaded psychic (from a long line of beautiful redheaded
psychics), gets hired to deliver weather forecasts at a high-ranked New York television station. Her abilities
include flawlessly predicting the weather, reading palms, and seeing into the future during a kiss. Although
her first gift got her the job and her second gift helps save lives, her ability to see a man’s romantic future
after one kiss has doomed her love life to failure. That is, until she kisses her one true love and feels...
Unfortunately for Rowie, she experiences that ultimate kiss with Drew Henderson, the station’s playboy
meteorologist whom she is temporarily replacing, after he suffers an accident while covering a hurricane in
Florida. Despite their mutual attraction, they have a professional rivalry which is fueled on by a conniving
producer at the station who is also in love with Drew. In a strange twist, the author gives us a peek inside
the thoughts of the two lovers and inside the mind of Jess Walker, the producer who gives Rowie a job only to
snatch it away from her when she witnesses the budding romance between the two rivals.
A strange assortment of other colorful characters inhabit this world. There are Rowie’s eccentric grandmother
and mother who run a New Age shop called Second Site that sells books, crystals, tarot cards, tools of the occult,
and readings. There are Rowie’s new co-workers at the station, who all share mixed emotions about the quirky young
woman with no broadcast experience or meteorological training who takes over the weather spot. Then there are the
lost souls who enter Second Site looking for answers to some of the strangest questions.
Forecast provides an entertaining look at the collision between science and metaphysics. While no one
but Rowie can accurately predict the weather, most readers will be able to predict the happy outcome of this fun
contemporary paranormal romance.
