I discovered the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon last summer and read all eight of these heart pounding, tear inducing, fabulous novels over the course of a few months.
If you have not read them, I encourage you to do so….life will never be the same once you are introduced to Jamie Fraser; the tall, redhaired hero of this series. Jamie is also referred to as The King of Men. ( once you read it, it will all become clear!)
Today's book review is a fictional account of a woman who goes to Scotland to find her own Jamie Fraser!
In Finding Fraser, Emma Sheridan, who is about to turn thirty, decides she has had enough of bad relationships and mediocre existence. She sells everything she owns -including her hair straightener, starts a travel blog and books a flight to Scotland. There, she plans to retrace the steps of Claire, the Outlander heroine and find true love along the way.
Of course the path of true love never runs smooth. Obstacles and mishaps find Emma and while searching for true love, she just may find the missing part of herself.
This book is a treat for an Outlander fan. The chance encounter Emma has with Herself ( the honorary title for the authoress of Outlander) is especially noteworthy.
The locations I had come to love are revisited in modern times and still have a charm to them. I have been wondering if travel agencies book these kind of tours maybe lead by a man in a kilt?!
Finding Fraser is a fast paced, enjoyable read; perfect for the weekend!
