Willa Jenkins is dragging herself through the motions of her life since the devastating death of her best friend, Valentina, seven weeks earlier. Being an entertainment news segment producer in Hollywood has never seemed more out of touch or pointless. Willa is stunned when she is summoned to a lawyer’s office only to discover that she was bequeathed an immersive Outlander experience in Scotland, the one show that she never had the inclination to watch with superfan Val. She is even more shocked to discover that she will be going with Val’s long-out-of-touch brother, Gabe, who cut himself off from his family after high school. When they arrive in Scotland, not everything is as it seems, including one of the gruff hosts of Balcraigie castle, Finlay Jamieson.
VERDICT McClure (The Break-Up Agency) has successfully created layered characters and adds a lot of sly laughs and inside Outlander jokes that will keep readers entertained, and the happily-ever-after ending will leave readers satisfied. A must-buy where Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander is popular.
