A timeless tale from the first name in romantic comedy - Jennifer Crusie!

OBJECTIVE: Find Man
Must be Rich, Handsome, and Successful


Kate Svenson is attractive, successful, a brilliant businesswoman - and miserable. After three failed engagements, she realises it's time for a PLAN...and organised, detailed agenda with a clear goal: finding Mr. Right.

The Cabins resort is ripe with eligible bachelors, all rich, distinguished and ambitious - just her type. And they're dropping like flies around her...at least, that's how Jake Templeton views the situation. After he's stuck pulling her latest reject out of the swimming pool, Jake's convinced this femme fatale is trouble. Especially for him.

But can a man who's sworn off ambition for good and a woman hanging from the top of the corporate ladder find common ground in the unpredictable territory called the heart, where the word proposal takes on a very different meaning...?

This book was so cute! The first chapter didn’t really grab me and I got a little worried. By the time the heroine pushed the first jerk in the pool…I knew this was a winner!

I haven’t had this much fun digging through an author’s backlist since I first discovered Mercedes Lackey. Oh, BTW – Authors. If you have the option…don’t use the color white for your hardback books. Us book aficionados sometimes get crazy about our dust jackets and we take them off the book while reading to protect them. So, now I have a dirty white book. *face palm*

    […] I reviewed Manhunting in 2013. The review is…barely there at best but it did capture my feelings at that time (I was knee deep in a Jenny Crusie glom). The initial chapter of Manhunting is underwhelming – especially when compared to other Crusie books like Agnes and the Hitman. Kate (the heroine) didn’t really start to catch me until the second chapter. Kate was (appropriately dressed, of course) outside at a poolside mixer (I’ve been to some of these – horrible, horrible things) when a fellow resort goer starts to get drunk and begins to harass her.
