A light paranormal and romantic comedy with a powerful love story. Sensual. Struck by lightning as a child, Sunny Larkin awoke with an uncanny ability to predict the weather. A bolt of a different sort hit her again when, dangling out of a fourth story window by a mini-blind cord, she looked up into the eyes of Kale Hoaglin, TV network stud and heir to KRIP, the good news station in Corpus Christi, Texas, where she worked.
