As promised, here’s my review of Finding Fraser by KC Dyer. I was excited to hear about this novel and even more excited when I was able to find the time to read it. It’s the story of a 29 year old woman named Emma who loves Outlander and runs to Scotland to find her own Jamie Fraser. Living the dream.
Overall Rating: 4/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Blogging Romance
So, the prospect of 30 is tough when you’re looking for love and Jamie Fraser is the only man who would fit the bill. Then again, what’s not to love? He’s devoted, strong, smart, noble, a generous lover, and sex in a kilt. But, I digress; Emma is pretty much working with very little cash and decides to trace the route Claire took in Scotland in search of her own Highlander. She meets several men, most of whom have you guessing, ‘will he be the one?’ until almost the end. She’s awkward, and struggling, which makes her relatable, and she explores with a sense of detailed wonder that I think is very understandable as an American in Scotland for the first time.
It’s written, partially, in blog format, which Emma keeps to regale her readers of her search for her Jamie. It is slightly reminiscent of Bridget Jone’s Diary, one of my all-time favorites. That made it a little bit more of a fast read, good for the beach or pool, as it isn’t a complicated story, nor one that requires much involvement. Just don’t go in expecting a grand romance, mega-humor, or the undeniable love of the true Jamie and Claire. But, then again, can we ever find a love so grand?
