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? 

What people are saying about FINDING FRASER: 

"Jamie Fraser would be Deeply Gratified at having inspired such a charmingly funny, poignant story--and so am I." 
--Diana Gabaldon, author of the New York Times Bestselling OUTLANDER series 

"I loved this book. It transported me to a Scotland I wished I’d grown up in. Everything about it is a delight, and it’s all authentic—the environment, the characters, the dialogue and the sheer enjoyment of it all.” 
-- Jack Whyte, best-selling author of, most recently, THE GUARDIANS OF SCOTLAND series 

“Finding Fraser is an absolute must-read for any Outlander fan. The story is both hilarious and romantic, as well as guaranteed to have readers turning the pages until the wee hours to discover if the heroine finds her very own Jamie Fraser.”  
-- Laura Bradbury, author of the best-selling MY GRAPE ESCAPE series

i adored this book, i doubt it would win any awards due to the lack of actual Scotland knowledge (according to the the reviews on  amazon) but its genuinely a fun book, so what if the author used a little creative flair whilst writing. The story flowed seamlessly from blog posts to actual storyline text and was emotionally light. of course this book is mainly a Outlander fan book but i can't see why you couldn't read it if you haven't read outlander. Yes its a little cheesy in places and YES we guessed who her Jamie was BUT SHE didn't hence the lovely story line.

the whole book is written in Emma's point of view and her blog posts. dyer has a lovely casual style that keeps you in the story and isn't overly dramatic.
Emma has left Chicago to find her James Fraser (character from outlander by diana gabaldon) on her travels she meets many characters who all have a small but important part to play. 

i must admit i adored Jack from the start he was just loveable, Hamish was arrogant and made me dislike him from his first few words. Emma was lovely and i just wanted to give her a confidence boost the whole way through the book.
 Emma's sister SOPHIA well id like to slap her. 
 all in al it was a lovely fun book with little to non sex scenes.
