Interesting to have some of the backstory to Lord John's life in the 1750s, after Culloden. The plot's fairly silly and superficial, though, by comparison with the Outlander books. Jamie's mentioned a few times, though not a character in the book, and Claire's mentioned maybe once. This is a straight historical mystery, with no time travel.

While this character was originally introduced in The Outlander Series, the Lord John novels are primarily historical mysteries and not sf/f.

NOT SF/F. By the author of the "Outlander" series. Apparently having mined that line for all its worth (actually far far MORE than it was worth) she has apparently branched out into new areas of romance-noveldom - which still does not make THIS series SF/F either. I am SO tired of coming across stuff like this under SF/F and unwittingly (*shudder*) taking it home, only to find myself with a volume full of tripe. Seriously. The library needs to stop classifying romance novels as SF/F just because they involve time travel, zombies, witches, vampires, or werewolves.
