Guest Review: Forecast (Jane Tara)

Forecastebook, 306 pages
Published May 1st 2013 by Momentum (first published October 30th 2007)

The Shakespeare women were what the locals of Greenwich Village called “gifted.”
Sure, Rowie’s predictions were helpful for forecasting the weather or finding someone’s lost grandkid. 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 some blonde from New Jersey? Nope, Rowie was much happier bringing together the people she knew were a perfect match. Until the day she kissed the man whose future she couldn’t foresee.

Hello from beautiful Bondi in Sydney. I'm thrilled that my first novel FORECAST has found a new home at Momentum Books. It was first published in 2007 by Dorchester, but they went bust... so if you're looking for my book, please note the new cover.
So FORECAST was re-released in May. And the long-awaited sequel, TROUBLE BREWING has also just been released. I'm so excited about this book.
You'll notice I have lots of travel books on my list. I'm an avid traveller. For years I wandered the world and wrote. I have over twenty children’s picture books published in Asia, and have written travel articles for many publications worldwide. I've lived in Tokyo, London, Vienna, New York and various parts of Australia. I even transformed my itchy feet into ITCHEE FEET, which publishes travel books for kids.
So now I'm juggling both romance and travel, and will be combining both in a great new series as well. Stay tuned. And please stay in touch.

Spellbinding!!!!!  I loved this book! I could not put it down! I want to be a good witch or at least be friends with cool would that be! Jane Tara did a phenomenal job of getting the reader lost in the magical place of New York City!

The Shakespeare women have been using their powers for generations. Now there are only a few of the women left. Rowie Shakespeare is the lucky one that is destine to carry on the family business, or at least that is what her Grandmother tells her.

 Rowie has her own dreams of having a more normal life. When Rowie was finally doing something she loved and making her own life she finds the one man she can not read. "Blissful nothing!" She had waited her whole life to kiss a man and not see his entire life play out in her mind, which did not include her. The man she can't read is none other than the handsome local TV weatherman Drew Henderson! 

 You think everything is going to be great but nothing is ever perfect, not even for a witch! I enjoyed their road back to each other and all the secrets that are divulged. I love to think about destiny and how each decision we make can take us down different paths for our future! This book did not disappoint! I give it 4.5 stars!
