THE SET UP by Lizzy Dent


There are two men in my life. But this is not a love triangle.

Mara Williams reads her horoscope every day – but she wasn’t expecting to be in a whole other country when destiny finally found her. Just as a fortune teller reveals that her true love is about to arrive, a gorgeous stranger literally walks into her life. And now Mara is determined to bring them together again . . . Surely even fate needs a nudge in the right direction sometimes?

But while Mara is getting ready for ‘the one’, the universe intervenes. Her new flatmate Ash is funny, and kind, and sexy as hell . . . There was no predicting this: it’s as if her destiny just arrived on her doorstep.

So will Mara put her destiny in fate’s hands – or finally trust herself to reach for the stars?

Micky’s 3.5 star review

Car crash heroine
Setting up ‘v’ serendipity
Wit and warm

The Set Up was an engaging contemporary read with wit and warmth. The protagonist Mara, took some time to get to know and like but she was worth the investment. She was definitely a complex character with some issues that Dent explored well.

This story took the reader from Budapest to various interesting locations across England. Everything Mara did came with a check on her horoscope to see if that gave her direction. I’m not a fan of horoscopes but I managed to rub along with that element.

The plot built to an impasse of setup versus serendipity and I was here for the serendipity of the housemate. You have to read to find out where Mara ended up.

Thank you @vikingbooksuk for the #gifted review copy.
