PERFECT FOLLOW-UP TO PROMISING DEBUT: Lizzy Dent’s debut, The Summer Job, received incredible praise from top outlets such as Cosmo, EW, Bustle, Country Living, Parade, New York Post, and The Pioneer Woman, and from beloved bestselling authors like Emily Henry, Josie Silver, Sophie Cousens, and Beth O’Leary, among others. Dent is poised to join these book-a-year rom-com authors.
HIGH CONCEPT LOVE STORY AND JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY: Denthas created another terrific high-concept story centered around one woman’s impulsive lie and the journey to love and finding herself that it sets off.
BUILDING A BRAND AUTHOR: Dent has found her niche creating memorable, hilarious heroines with an edge who you can’t help rooting for. This new book does not disappoint with a quirky coming-to-self journey for fans of shows like New Girl and The Mindy Project, and a great love story that rom-com fans will devour.
ON-TREND ESCAPIST SUMMER TPO: On-trend with recent comps like Emily Henry’s People We Meet on Vacation, this is another deliciously fun summer read perfect for Putnam’s growing trade paperback original fiction program with a gorgeous English summer setting.
“I fell in love with Lizzy Dent’s writing with The Summer Job and have been waiting with bated breath to see what she does next. This book is everything I wanted and then some. With Dent’s usual humor, wit, and warmth and a spectacularly charming cast of weirdos, The Setup is exactly the kind of summer read I’m constantly on the hunt for. I love astrology-obsessed hot-mess Mara, I love the crumbling little Broadgate lido she’s out to save, and I love-love-love Lizzy Dent.” —Emily Henry, author of People We Meet on Vacation and Book Lovers
“An adorable rom com packed full of nostalgia and Dent’s trademark wit.” —Sophie Cousens, author of This Time Next Year
“Lizzy Dent, known for her bestselling novel The Summer Job, is back once again with another witty story filled with love and lighthearted humor” —PopSugar
“[A] sweet and funny tale of a woman who has been barely scraping by as she opens herself up to new friends and new experiences. For fans of Abbi Waxman and Emily Henry.” —Booklist
“Grab your SPF and your carry-on because we have the ultimate beach read for your summer getaway. The Setup is a laugh-out-loud story about 31-year-old Mara who (while on a solo vacation) impulsively decides to impersonate a fortune teller. You can’t imagine the twists and turns this story takes but we’ll just tell you right now it involves a gorgeous Australian cellist named Josef, so do with that information what you will." –Love to Know
