Non ancora pubblicato in Italia. Una fantastica e divertente storia di matchmaking con conseguenze impreviste.
Ari Abrams became a TV meteorologist thanks to legendary weatherwoman Torrance Hale. She grew up watching her on TV and she couldn’t believe her luck when she got a job working for her. Except that, three years later, her dreams of being mentored by Torrance are shattered as she spends more time arguing with her ex-husband than mentoring Ari. After yet another disastrous work event that ended up with a broken window and everyone leaving earlier than expected, Ari finds herself sitting at a bar hotel drinking with sport journalist Russell. Working for Torrance’s ex-husband, Russell understands Ari better than anyone else so they decide to get them back together because it is clear that they still have feelings for each other. And the more time Russell and Ari spends together, the more is clear that they aren’t the only one.
