About The Book

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?

My Thoughts

When you don’t know how to control your life, the only way to control it is using fate as guidance. So, this is how our main character Mara Williams, thinks she can control her love life in the hands of the horoscope; reading it every day and looking for clues to find her “perfect” match. So, when a fortune teller tells her that her love is around the corner, she decides to take all the possible steps to find it. But, is what the fortune teller told her or her wishes so strong that make her believe things that aren’t real?
Even if I’ve never been a fate or horoscope believer, but I could understand how Mara feels that all her world is out of her reach and the only way she can feel in control is “controlling” fate. But, as you are well aware, fate is something totally impossible to control, and Mara will have to learn by herself that love is not something that you can plan but something that happens in the moment you least expect it.
I always love how the author, Lizzy Dent, always creates stories with characters that are lost and show the reader how healing is not always something that you can do alone but with the help from the people that surround us. Of course, if we leave them!
This is a story to make you believe in yourself and remember that love is always there if you are really looking.
Ready for “The Setup”?
