Is you Mom a died hard Outlander fan?
Or are you one?
Have the 2 of you ever talked about running off to Scotland and tracing the stops in the show?
If so, THIS is a book you MUST read!
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.
Ok, so sometimes with chick lit, you can see the trees for the forest right away and you have a clue what the plot might be. But GETTING there is half the fun usually, and with this book, it is ALL of the fun! It is such a fun premise, Emma having just enough gumption to take on Scotland (and master it), bit not enough to see what is really going on. This makes her extremely likable and honest. Her relationship with her sister if full of all the love/hate/competition of childhood, and you just can't help wondering if Emma's family really thinks she's truly brave, but doesn't want to tell her! Everything is here- travel, romance, friendship, learning to belong and plenty of humor! I read this book in one sitting, it was SO SO much fun! It would be a great book to read together and then plan a girls party, or even a trip (!!!) around as well! Once you read it, you'll be wanting to share it with everyone too! So don't miss this one!
