Book Review: Finding Fraser by KC Dyer

Finding Fraser
by KC Dyer
May 1st 2016

by Berkley Books
Pages: 388
I met Jamie Fraser when I was nineteen years old. He was tall, red-headed, and at our first meeting at least, a virgin. He was, in fact, the perfect man.
That he was fictional hardly entered into it...

On the cusp of thirty, Emma Sheridan is desperately in need of a change. After a string of failed relationships, she can admit that no man has ever lived up to her idea of perfection: the Scottish fictional star of romantic fantasies the world over—James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser.

Her ideal man might be ripped from the pages of a book, but Emma hopes that by making one life-altering decision she might be able to turn fiction into fact. After selling all her worldly possessions, Emma takes off for Scotland with nothing but her burgeoning travel blog to confide in.

But as she scours the country’s rolling green hills and crumbling castles, Emma discovers that in searching for her own Jamie Fraser, she just might find herself.

This is the first book I've read by KC Dyer and I found that I really liked her writing style. I was disappointed that Jack Findlay was not a real author or the books Dragon Thane. Though I speculate that the character's name could be based on Jack Whyte, a British Columbia author that she discusses in the back of the book. I figured since this story was based on a real book and character from another author that this fact would be too. I also didn't realize until reading this book that some of the locations in the Outlander books were not real. I'm not sure why I thought all the locations were based on actual places but I did. 

Emma Sheridian needs a change in her life so she decides that she is gong to head to Scotland and find her one true love, her own Jamie Fraser from her favorite Outlander book by Diana Gabaldon. If you haven't read the Outlander book you can still enjoy this story but for you Outlander fans it was fun and worth the read. Full of quirky comedy and disasters; I was definitely not disappointed that I gave his author a try.
