Publisher Description

A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick "Narrator Frankie Corzo's lovely smooth voice eloquently depicts the mostly female characters in this novel . . . This audiobook enthralls the listener." - AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award winning review “There’s a 100% chance you’ll be paging through this book to uncover the secrets and deception that could potentially burn everything down!” — Reese Witherspoon “This is by far one of the most endearing L.A. novels in recent memory.”— Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "A capacious book, chock-full of human drama...Escandón’s narrative voice is often witty and warm, and her meditations on Los Angeles are lush and lyrical...A lively and ambitious family novel." — New York Times Book Review Storm clouds are on the horizon in L.A. Weather, a fun, fast-paced novel of a Mexican-American family from the author of the #1 Los Angeles Times bestseller Esperanza’s Box of Saints L.A. is parched, dry as a bone, and all Oscar, the weather-obsessed patriarch of the Alvarado family, desperately wants is a little rain. He’s harboring a costly secret that distracts him from everything else. His wife, Keila, desperate for a life with a little more intimacy and a little less Weather Channel, feels she has no choice but to end their marriage. Their three daughters—Claudia, a television chef with a hard-hearted attitude; Olivia, a successful architect who suffers from gentrification guilt; and Patricia, a social media wizard who has an uncanny knack for connecting with audiences but not with her lovers—are blindsided and left questioning everything they know. Each will have to take a critical look at her own relationships and make some tough decisions along the way. With quick wit and humor, Maria Amparo Escandón follows the Alvarado family as they wrestle with impending evacuations, secrets, deception, and betrayal, and their toughest decision yet: whether to stick together or burn it all down. A Macmillan Audio production from Flatiron Books
