Review: Finding Fraser by KC Dyer

Title: Finding Fraser
By: KC Dyer
My Copy:
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

I met Jamie Fraser when I was nineteen years old. He was tall, red-headed, and at our first meeting at least, a virgin. I fell in love hard, fast and completely. He knew how to ride a horse, wield a sword and stitch a wound. He was, in fact, the perfect man.

That he was fictional hardly entered into it.

At 29, Emma Sheridan’s life is a disaster and she’s tired of waiting for the perfect boyfriend to step from the pages of her favorite book. There’s only one place to look, and it means selling everything and leaving her world behind. With an unexpected collection of allies along the way, can Emma face down a naked fishmonger, a randy gnome, a perfidious thief, and even her own abdominal muscles on the journey to find her Fraser?

As some as you might know, I have been obsessed with Outlander lately. The books, the TV show, the men…all of it.  So when I found this book, I forwarded the link to my friend who is also obsessed with Outlander as well.  Together we decided to create a book club (between the two of us) and read the story about Emma, a lonely American, who sells everything she owns and hops across the pond to find her Jamie Fraser (because it is something that we have dreamed of doing.  Who wouldn’t travel to the ends of the earth to find the greatest man ever thought up.)

I don’t think that I have any other words to describe this book besides that it is so cute (and I mean cute in the best of ways.)  I loved the adventures that Emma just happened to fall in to throughout the whole book and they started before she even left the United States.  Like meeting Herself and being saved from a mob of women by a Scot the night before taking off to Scotland and that is just the beginning. 

In this book, Emma slowly finds herself.  She grows up, becomes independent, attracts loyal blog followers, and finds the Jamie of her dreams all while finding her true home.

For anyone who loves Outlander and needs a piece of it while we wait for another book and season two, this is the book to read.

Back to the book club.  My friend and I only met once for lunch on a Sunday afternoon to discuss the book and she had just started it the night before so she wasn’t far in.  I, on the other hand, was half way through so we couldn’t dive deep into the cuteness of Dyer’s book, which made me sad.  However, spending time with my friend…priceless.  (Next time she will just have to understand that she cannot match a book bloggers reading speed J )
