A cute fast read. Better than the average "chick lit" romance, but maybe not quite as good as the author's best (IMHO Bet Me is the best Crusie).
I did find the heroine's unfortunate penchant for injuring her dates pretty funny. One ends up in a pool, another has a "heart incident", one has a problem with a horse, and another ends up over a cliff and covered in poison ivy. Finding a guy willing to brave dating Kate isn't going to be easy.
This book said it was Jennifer Crusie's first published book. What way to start!! I have read a couple of other books by her and this one didn't disappoint either. Very funny! I laughed out loud in parts. Very good book. Nice summer read.
A light predictable read but enjoyable nonetheless. Sometimes I like to read something that I don't have to give a lot of thought to and I want to read a book that just makes me feel good, Manhunting filled that need. We should all have a Jake in our lives at least once! LOL.
From the back cover of the book:
Find a Rich, Handsome and Successful Man
Kate Svenson may be a dynamite businesswoman - but after three failed engagements, she's decided she's hopeless at romance. What she needs is a Business Plan to help her find Mr. Right.
The Cabins resort is ripe with eligible bachelors, all rich and ambitious - just her type. But they're dropping like flies, and after fishing Kate's latest reject out of the swimming pool, Jake Templeton is convinced that Kate is nothing but trouble. Especially for him.
A man who's sworn off ambition and a woman hanging from the top of the corporate ladder don't have much in common. But in that unpredictable territory known as the heart, anything can happen...
funny, crusie books are great
