Once, a long time ago, back when Twitter was actually a place for conversation rather than brands yelling things into the ether, I met a girl. She was a writer, like me, and we bonded over our mutual love for Jamie Fraser and all the rest of Diana Galdon’s Outlander characters.
Genevieve and I checked in with each other sporadically, encouraging each other as we wrote our first novels. Then I got a job and got sidetracked and she got a killer agent and an even better book deal and I was beyond stoked for her.
This week her publisher informed her that she was officially a Best Selling Author. (Yes, it does merit capitals.) And I couldn’t be more excited.
I mean, I can always say “I knew her when…” Heck, I can even claim the fame of having beta read the first half of her first book. Squee.
In any case, we don’t need any list proclaiming her to be awesome, her books will prove it just fine on their own. If you have a penchant for historical tales set in the Scottish Highlands, for good looking men in tartans, for mysterious romances that will have you sighing and weeping and hoping against hope that things will work out for everyone, basically, if you loved Outlander, do yourself a favor and get this book, and then the next one. You can thank me later.
Read this book if: You love historical romanc-y type books. You have a thing for men in kilts. You love well written stories that you can slip into like a warm blanket.
Would this make a good book club book? It’s entirely possible, especially if everyone is into men in kilts. But I bet you’ll want to savor this one on your own. If your friends are lucky, you might share after you’re done. Or not.
