A pretty good mystery/suspense/romance. I liked Miranda's tenaciousness in figuring out how to set Owen free. The small town characters were intriguing and loved how Miranda escaped her past. Full review coming on The Smut-Brarians. ...more

A modern day tale of Beauty and the Beast in a gothic romance. The characters are so interesting and the underlying suspense will keep you riveted. Everything about Fall Island seemed dark and foreboding.
Love, honesty and loyalty save the day.

Josie's Review 4.5 STARS

Set Me Free was such an amazing and captivating read, the blurb did not do this book justice. I will admit that after I read the synopsis for this book I was curious and had so many thoughts and ideas running through my mind. I am so pleased that NOT ONE was right. I love a book and an author that can challenge me and take me on a journey that has my mind working from the beginning to the very end and that is exactly what this author did to me. Miranda and Owen’s characte

Wow. I read this a while back and I am now coming to write a review. The character development in this book was so intensely amazing I almost didn't recognize them by the end. This book was a quick read but that doesn't mean it wasn't full of substance. This book touched on some things I haven't ever read about and I felt like they were done in an accurate style. I want to read more from this author in the future! ...more

“If you’re not an English major, what are you?” Owen asked.
“I’m…” Before Rhys, I was a bartender and a painter. But since then? “I’m nothing.” Absolutely nothing.

Set Me Free by London Setterby is an interesting emotional read. The story opens with main character, Miranda, named after Shakespeare’s Miranda in The Tempest, running away from her abusive and domineering boyfriend Rhys. She has no idea where she’s going except that she needs to get as far away from him as possible.

Running To Find Herself And More . . .

This novel was a mix of romantic suspense with a hint of supernatural surrounding an art based crime thriller. At its core the book is unique but could have been flushed out into about three different stories instead of just this one novel. I'd most likely have rated this book higher if the it had been split in two parts, because the protagonist offered a myriad of issues to read about.

After much secretly planning for months, Miranda Lewis was finally able t

Miranda is trying to outrun her abusive past when she ends up in on a small island off of Maine. The small town charms her even if the locals seem a little wary. Especially with their open dislike of Owen, the son of the coffee shop owner. Trying to fit in and start over, Miranda senses there is a secret about Owen that no one seems to want to share with her.

This is an intriguing mix of a story. Just a hint of the paranormal, mixed with suspense and romance. Not an easy relationship between Miranda and Owen, and it is fair to say that there is a heavy helping of fate laid over it. However, anything work having is worth working for.

A touching story of faith in love and relationships. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is a wonderful romance and mystery with a Gothic feel - it gave me strong Rebecca vibes, which is a fantastic thing in my book! I loved the Maine island setting, Miranda and her new friends, and the mysterious painter who "haunts" the novel. There were a few details related to Miranda and her escape from an abusive relationship that didn't quite seem realistic, but overall it was a great story. ...more

Pointless cliche of a book.
Main character was very annoying but on a positive note the writing was not half as bad. Couldn't quite connect or feel anything for any of the characters.
Story started out well but just became predictable.A few things were never fully explained so definitely some loose threads left behind.Romance moved too fast and the second half of the book just dragged on and on without much point to it really.
