K.C. Dyer has written a clever, funny, and sweetly romantic book about a young woman who is out of work and unlucky in love. Emma, a HUGE fan of Diana Gabaldon’s book, Outlander, decides to take what little money she has and travel to Scotland to find her Jamie Fraser, and blogs about her journey. Emma’s blog attracts a loyal following of young women, eager to hear her exploits with Scottish men, and root on her search exuberantly. As a funny side note, her sister, Sophie posts some hysterically funny notes to her on her blog, claiming she’s making up these followers (I mean, come on, who would make up a name like hihokitty!) and to just come home already.
I, also am a huge fan of Outlander, and I will admit, am also a fan of Jamie Fraser. However, I do know he’s a fictional character. I’m sure there are some honorable, sweet, very nicely built warrior men out there… But Emma’s comparing all men to that fantasy is going to cause her all kinds of disappointment, and it did, in a charmingly funny way. I’ll give this character props, she was determined to fit that square peg into a round hole (bad visual, I know!), but it did make for a cute story. Of course, there is an HEA to Emma’s search, and I spotted him pretty early on, but this search of Emma’s became more of a journey of self discovery than a search for a man, and I was enjoying the humor too much to get frustrated by how long it took for her to figure it out.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Berkley Publishing group, through NetGalley, for my honest review. This book was released in February, so pick up a copy and enjoy the journey!
