Product Description

Product Description

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.

Forecast is the first book in the Shakespeare Sisters series. The second book is Trouble Brewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great summer read! 1 May 2013

I don't tend to enjoy chick lit but really loved this. I'm so glad that there's to be a sequel as I didn't want it to end. What makes this such an enjoyable read is that you really care about the characters - this is isn't a book where the man's short-comings are endlessly heralded but a cute romance that you really hope will end well.

Well written but 100% predictable and full of far, far too many feel-goods for my taste. It's the sort of book where the heroine is an amazing Mary Sue that everyone except the single person who has to dislike her to create enough dissonance for a plot loves her. Then, once the necessary challenge has been presented and mastered the single bitch becomes mysteriously contrite, apologises and is instantly forgiven (because there can't be any lingering hard feelings apparently). Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, ends up happy. (How realistic is that?) I know many people love this aspect of romantic comedy. Me? I've over here suffocating on all of the hearts and flowers flooding the room and blocking the oxygen from reaching my poor withered heart.

Plus, apparently I'm not nearly as good a person as Rowie, because I wouldn't have forgiven so easily and have a hard time relating to how she could have. Her easy forgiveness kind of felt like a betrayal to me. I also thought the need to have every single person in the book paired off in the end, thus requiring attention be paid to their bit of the story, thinned the plot (a lot). I mean that's Rowie, her mother and grandmother, Angel, Petey, Jack, Drew, Georgette, William, Shin and Jess. That's a pretty full list of people to find partners for and try to keep a plot tight. It didn't really work that well.

Again, the book is well written and I didn't notice any editing errors. It's also pretty darned funny. I liked a lot of the sarcastic commentary. So, it's not a fail in general, just a fail for me.

On a side note: The series is called the Shakespeare Sisters, but Rowies an only child. Figure that one out.
