Review of An Unlikely Setup (Welcome to Otter Tail #1) by Margaret Watson

“You should come with a warning label…”


Genre: Contemporary Romance

Length: 200 Pages

POV: Third Person


After a disastrous business decision plunged her into debt, Maddie Johnson had only one way to save herself – return to Otter Tail, Wisconsin, sell her godfather’s pub and start over. But the best laid plans…

Quinn Murphy, her former crush and the man she least wanted to see, is running the pub. He wants to buy it, and he’s willing to play dirty. Too bad Maddie can’t afford to take his bid and get out of town.

Maddie hasn’t seen Quinn since a humiliating night fifteen years ago. But she never forgot him. She’s still drawn to him – even though getting involved with Quinn would be an utter disaster.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

The last thing Maddie wanted to do was return to Otter Tail. She used to spend the summers with her godfather, but after a humiliating one she never came back. That is until he passed away and left her everything from his house to the bar he’d owned.

“There’s a lot to be said for instant gratification.”

Quinn was supposed to buy the bar, but everything changed once the owner passed away. Now he had to convince the new owner to sell it to him for the amount he could afford. He never expected to be told no. Nor did he expect to be attracted to the woman who was basically destroying his future.

“I just like touching you.”

An Unlikely Setup puts two people who just may be destined for each other together…or rather someone they both cared for did. Even after death her godfather worked his magic knowing better than they did what they both needed.

It’s funny and quirky, not to mention a little emotional. It’s a good way to start a series and I look forward to reading more.
