weathergirl for he news team at KWAC TV in Aspen Grove, California She s literally grown up in the newsroom there, as the previous weathercaster was her father The community loves her sweet, girl next door style of delivering the news and she loves the community back, with no desire to ever live elsewhere She already has her dream job here.Noah Drake becomes the new station manager when KWAC is sold He and his assistant general manager, Gabe Weston, have a reputation that has earned them the nickname The Firing Squad Breezy, the eternal optimist, is determined to remain positive until she overhears him referring to her as Pollyanna in the most negative sense of the term The Pride and Prejudice parallels are obvious, especially when the sexy Pamela Gladstone Hurricane Pamela shows up with a very Caroline Bingley like attitude toward the peasants she works with, aside from Noah Breezy s mother is quite Mrs Bennet like in her desire to see her daughter married However, this book also deviates significantly from PP, so there s no predicting exactly how things will play out.There are a couple of homonym type misspellings born borne and another one or two others I can t specifically recall , but otherwise the writing is quite good Ms Horrocks does a nice job of creating a hometown feeling in Aspen Grove the reader gets a Bedford Falls It s A Wonderful Life sense about the place She introduces a number of characters who will obviously continue throughout this series of books Unfortunately, many of them don t figure much into this plot, and there are too many to remember if you re reading this as a stand alone Among the stand out supporting players here Andrew North is a surfer dude who s Breezy s ex boyfriend Candy Kane is proprietor of Candy s Cafe hosting Chick Flick Clique movie nights every Wednesday with Breezy and her friends I really like the dynamics between Noah and Breezy There s a nice spark between them, both in their conversations and physically She s immediately attracted to him and often struggles to maintain her dislike for him personally despite her abhorrence for what he s doing to her beloved news office Meanwhile, Noah quickly recognizes that he underestimated Breezy and that he d REALLY like to go out with her He hates having Pamela around poisoning the work atmosphere at the station, but his hands are tied by the firm directives of the station owner, Mr Bentley I do find it hard to believe that Noah would interview any of his employees, and surely not an on air personality, without thoroughly reviewing their HR files Instead, Breezy s qualifications surprise him, which is ridiculous The author could achieve the same effect sticking to Breezy s much younger than her age appearance and her unsophisticated approach to delivering the news.Onerall, this book has a very pleasant, wholesome quality Content is clean and Biblical type morals are demonstrated, yet there are glimpses of the darker side of humanity in the real world Despite its flaws, I really liked it Weather forecast for tonight dark George CarlinBreanne Breezy Jones is a meteorologist with several degrees and a masters under her belt

Specifically, one Pamela Gladstone a Caroline Bingley clone who is a sexy, bombshell weathercaster chosen to replace the wholesome Breezy on the air Pamela knows nothing about forecasting She just reads what is on the teleprompter When Breezy is demoted to Pamela s assistant and slated to do the forecasting for her things start going downhill Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine Anthony J D AngeloWe have our snide remark that Breezy overhears Drake finds out later that she heard his remark and the morale situation at the station becomes strained at

call made for an even less desirable situation The alternative being leaving Aspen Grove and her wonderful friends behind, in search for another job was the only thing less desirable This was a fun and heart warming book, that left me thoroughly entertained Heartily recommend Life for Breezy Jones is going good An award winning meteorologist following in her father s footsteps With her cheery

new general manager, Noah Drake starts making changes that effect everything that is Breezy s dream To addfuel to the fire Breezy sat a lost with a growing attraction between her and Noah and their differences just keeping them apart.It s always nice to curl up with a cute book and Pride and Precipitation was just a plain cute romance, with shades of Pride and Prejudice and Pollyanna this book had a great cozy town feeling to in along with good solid characters.Breezy gets hit hard when changes take away her from her dream, getting her replaced diva and makes her a mere weather assistant Wanting to keep a positive outlook she works hard while trying to keep a lid on her almost instant attractive dislike to her new boss Noah after overhearing some not so nice things Things finally come to head for Breezy when she finally quits and it s in Noah s court to win her back Noah is at times a jaded manager, wanting to get the job done, rack up higher ratings and move on to another job Of, course he hits a road block that is Breezy He can t get over how cheerful and positive she is and starts to realize he s falling in love, but winning her is going to take everything he s got in order to prove his heart Both leads were adorable, the romance had a soft touch to it as they both slowly fall in love with the other Making the story a clean read with just some kissing The trouble I did have was the dance around Noah and Breezy go through as Noah gets hit hard with lower ratings, bad emails demanding Breezy back and wanting Breezy back himself Breezy on the other hand helps out an ex bf while she s job hunting I think this separation could have been shorten and perhaps an added tension for the couple to perhaps get a chance to get closer and know one another sooner Once these two do get together is was heart warming and brought a happy, silly smile to my face Like a sweet delicious treat this was just wonderful read I m so happy to have discovered this wonderful author, how she was able to create characters that ended up being lovable and having a greater dimension to them Giving this series and the small town of Aspen Grove plenty of room to grow Pride and Precipitation

character is Breezy Jones, a meteorologist who is the weathergirl for the news team at KWAC TV in Aspen Grove She is kind, funny and everyone in town loves her but her life changes when Noah Drake, the new station manager, removes her from her position as weathergirl to have Pamela Gladstone, a sexier hollywodesque version replace her on that position.Their relationship deteriorates evenafter she hears him call her Pollyanna, a clear reference to the Meryton Assembly remark, and just like in Pride and Prejudice these two characters will have to get to know each other better, to leave the prejudice behind, and find true happiness The road to happiness is long but less bumpier than Pride and Prejudice, especially because this is the epitome of a romcom novel.It is a light entertaining read, with several movie references, that may be evenappealing to American readers, who may be able to identify with the characters lifestyle and habits.I enjoyed the small town feel, the events and places we visited throughout the book, the girlish talk between Breezy and her friends and her parents personalities which resembled Mr and Mrs Bennet, but I wasn t captivated by the main characters, especially Breezy, and because of that the book didn t stand out for me.It is a fun, sweet romance that readers may enjoy, especially if they are into chick flick lit I would only recommend it to readers if this is a genre they love though, if not, I believe it will not meet the expectations It is a piece of fluff, but for a lazy summer afternoon with nothing much on my mind it kept my
