So much has already been said here that I agree with, I would just like to add that while I found the Paris portions of DiA entertaining, I felt like I’d fallen into an Outlander short story/novelette — a little sideways jaunt that wasn’t mean to really move things along, but instead to flesh out J&C’s relationship (after all that happened in Outlander, we needed to stay put a bit) and develop their characters before the heavier action/separation take place.

I was so glad to get back to Scotland, which is a “character” in the books to me as much as Jamie and Claire.

[SPOILER TALK]

Later, I suppose N.C. was a stand in, many similarities both in landscape and position/relation of “laird” in America, but it took me a while to get over losing Scotland as the setting. 🙂
