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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just BREATHE. 18 July 2013
By Steph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Attention all authors & editors...LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BREATHE AND BREATH! Spellcheck will not carch this! You must actually read your book!! Am I the only one w/ this pet peeve?!?

Other than that annoying detail, Forecast was a cute book w/ a fun premise: Rowie Shakespeare can forecast the weather (among other things) and comes from a long line of intuitive women with various mystical abilities. Rowie's penchant for weather accuracy propels her into the weather woman spot on TV, playing up her gifts as a gimmic for ratings while regular meteorologist Drew Henderson is laid up after an accident. Sparks fly when the two meet but a jealous ex gf and coworker is determined to make Drew hers forever, no matters what Rowie predicts. Chaos ensews.

Follows the typical romcom formula but I do like the quirky characters who are unashamed of their gifts and the different background of meteorology. Rowie's mom and grandma were funny, and BFF Angel was awesome as well.

Not a groundbreaking novel, but not a bad way to spend the day either. With a few light edits, I would move my rating for content up to a 4.
3.0 out of 5 stars too sweet for me 21 July 2014
By Zarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A cute, fun read 24 July 2014
By Jen R - Published on Amazon.com

3.5 stars

Forecast was a cute read. I enjoyed the main characters and it was just fun.

Rowie is psychic just like the rest of the women in her family. She helps her grandmother run their store, though she wants more from her life. She doesn't want to be stuck there forever, something her grandmother doesn't understand. Her mother has always had her head in the clouds a bit and never got over her father (who her mother had only spent one night with and never saw again). Rowie's talents are different from her mother and grandmother. She can predict the weather and has been doing so for 3 years now outside their place. She has never been wrong. She can also see a guys future when she kisses them, which might not be a big deal only it never includes her. She's tried in the past to just ignore it, but that just ends in heartache when the guy finds the girl she saw when she first kissed him. She is waiting to find the guy who makes her see nothing when they kiss. The guy who blocks her powers, the guy for her.

Drew is the popular weather guy everyone loves. He is a bit of a ladies man, but he is not a bad guy. He did sleep with the lady in charge at work though and that has been a bit of a disaster. He thought she was okay with no strings, until she got really clingy and he tried to end it amicably. Since then Jess, the girl in charge, has been holding a grudge. She wants Drew back and so she ends up being an issue.

At the beginning of the book Drew hurts his leg while covering the hurricane in Florida so they need a temporary replacement - Rowie. Jess had just seen her weather thing that morning and they could use a gimmick to get people to tune in. Drew has veto power and has to approve his replacement and when Rowie and Drew meet they are both drawn to the other. Drew tries to be annoyed with her when he finds out she is a gimmick. He is all science and loves his job. He doesn't want anyone making a mockery of it.. Then he talks to her again and it just is perfect. They are so perfect for each other and he can't stay mad at her.

When he can finally come back to New York, when his leg heals enough, things quickly heat up. Jess is around trying to cause trouble as she wants Drew for herself. She really is quite mean and selfish and just not a very nice person. It was still nice to see Drew and Rowie together as they were really cute. Of course it can't be all sunshine and roses and there are some issues, but they work it out in the end.

There were a few small things that did bug me about the book. A few times there were some conversations about like the environment and stuff and they way it was written was just like the author wanted to add a psa into the story, not like just have the characters discuss it. It didn't feel natural and while I agreed with what was said I still didn't like it in my story. It needs to flow and just be what it is.

The other thing that bugged me? Everyone Rowie knows finds love at the same time. I really don't like when that happens. It is just a bit too...too much for me. It is not realistic that everyone you know will find their true loves all within like a week of each other. It is just something that bugs me in books. Overall though I did enjoy the story, it was really cute, and I would read more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wittingly Whimsical and Magically Romantic….. 6 December 2013
By De Ann Townes Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was set off on a journey of magic at its best. Let’s just say that I enjoyed each and every magical page. I was pleasantly surprised as I devoured and every page. Author Jane Tara weaved a wonderfully romantic and stirringly eclectic web of characters throughout each and every chapter, to build a fabulous and delicious read.

If a truly touching and a magical read is what you love? Then this is the read for you. And if you are looking for a truly heartwarming and magically romantic read? Then I say pick it up and enjoy, smile….

I loved it so much, that I purchased the 2nd book in the series right after. I will be continuing this amazing ride. Gracias to the Author for this awesome read!!!

A definite 5 Star read for the romantics at heart. {WaAr}
