Finding Fraser | Book Review

Tuesday, September 25, 2018
"I met Jaime when I was nineteen years old. He was tall, redheaded, the perfect man. That he was fictional hardly mattered..." With a back blurb like that, I just couldn't ignore a book with that humour.

I actually planned this post back in August but never got around to finally finishing up until now. so here it is:
If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw that I did a short post on Finding Fraser. This summer I was at the library, in the English section, when I stumbled upon this book. The cover looked interesting but it was the title that got me, Finding Fraser. Could it refer to whom I think it is? Intrigued by the name, the kilt-wearing lad and the fact that Diana Gabaldon has a quote on the cover I decided to read the back blurb.
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.   Emma | Finding Fraser 

Finding Fraser | KC Dyer

After reading that I decided to read it and I liked it a lot. The title refers to Jamie Fraser who is the main character in the Outlander series, that the main character in finding Fraser is in love with. She goes on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Scotland to find her own Jamie after everything in her life has gone wrong.

The writing was fun and the characters somewhat relatable (honestly who wouldn't want their own Jamie?) but I had the biggest time understanding how a 29-year-old would be caught up in so many questionable situations. The author does know how to write a story that will suck you right in. Even herself Diana Gabaldon makes an appearance.

The main characters (whose name I forgot) decides to leave everything behind to go to Scotland and find herself a Jaime, one of the things she does is start a travel blog of sorts. One of the unbelievable things is the fact that she gets a minimum of 3 comments per post. At one point she had 100+, I'm not saying I'm jealous, but I wish! Also, the fact that she does some very immature, crazy things did not sit well with me (I'm 19, and I could see that from a mile away).
Fun fact: The author is Canadian! Ok, maybe that's just a fun fact for me *sigh* what a tough crowd.
Overall a great afternoon read, some head shakes and lots of Outlander references. The fabric on which the book is upon is one of my favourites, most prized fabric that I have. I'm terrified of cutting it and messing up that wonderful tartan.
If you loved Outlander (especially Jaime) and have wondered: how can I get a Jaime of my own?; then this is a book for you.
I give this book 3.5/5 

Have you read Finding Fraser? Did you enjoy it? Should I do more reviews or leave it as is? Well, I hope you enjoyed this review and until next time.
