About the Author

Bestselling author Janet Evanovich is the winner of the New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award and multiple Romantic Times awards, including Lifetime Achievement. She is also a long-standing member of RWA.

From AudioFile

This re-release from 1989 is pure Evanovich. Alexandra Scott, intrepid New Jersey girl, trades Wall Street for Alaska, sight unseen. Of course, a cabin without ANY amenities but plenty of wildlife doesn't faze her, nor does her sexy neighbor, Michael Casey. But working with gruff Andy, who runs the store she purchased, also sight unseen, does present a few challenges. Critt laughs along with the listener as Alexandra fights off mice, guns, snow, and abundant men. This short adventure proves itself to have aged well as Critt shows us how women hunt men in Alaska.

Evanovich has a great sense of humor, and has created a quick, fun read with MANHUNT.

I think a book is great when it can make you laugh out loud while reading and she can sure do that.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a short and simple, well-written romance. If fluff offends you, steer clear of "Manhunt," written in the days when Janet Evanovich was developing the talent that authored the terrific Stephanie Plum series, i.e., "One For The Money," etc. However, if you're looking for an entertaining read to wile away a few hours, this could be it.
Alexandra Scott, a New Jersey resident with a high powered Wall Street career, is burnt out. She cannot take another 80 hour work week, and she doesn't want any of the perks that go along with it. She is tired of speeding through her rat race life before she has Lived it - with a capital "L." So, she of the analytic brain and practical mind, trades in her luxury condo for a cabin in the backwoods of Alaska - sight unseen! She always knew that Alaska, where men outnumber women by a large percentage, would be the place where she could find the perfect husband. And she wants to get married and start a family before it is too late.
Alex, an upbeat, self-sufficient woman, travels with small sports car and large dog across the country and heads due north. She eventually finds her Alaskan wilderness cabin, which needs a lot of work before the deep freeze sets in, and she meets her nearest neighbor, Michael Casey, an incredibly hunky pilot. Sparks fly but he is a confirmed bachelor. She is as undaunted by his resistance as by the frequent disasters that befall her while learning to be a wilderness woman.
This is a good, fun read. It is also interesting, if you are an Evanovich fan, to read one of her early novels and compare it, and her humor, with her latest work. Enjoy!!

`Manhunt' by Janet Evanovich is a quick amusing romantic treat. Alex leaves her high stressed job to find a husband and new life in Alaska. She finds handsome confirmed bachelor Casey who turns out to be Mr. Right or Mr. Right now? This novel keeps a smile on your face and you will enjoy every funny adventure.

This really was a cute story. I can see a lot of the same in her Plum series...food and accident prone!!!

This was cute story...short too!!! Something from Evanovich early days. But worth reading.

I am glad she re-released this one...have enjoyed all of them...looking forward to Smitten.

This would be a great stocking stuffer!!!

At the point of mental exhaustion after finishing a 600-page novel of intrigue in Victorian England, I felt in need of lighter fare. Yup, this was it.

As author Janet Evanovich explains in a preface written just inside the front cover, MANHUNT was one of twelve short romances - "red hot screwball comedies" - written in her pre-Plum days, nine of which are being re-released. This book in particular was inspired by a 1-year residence with her husband, two kids, cat and beagle in a cabin deep in the woods outside Fairbanks, AL.

Here, Alexandra Scott, the 29 going on 65, burned-out, junior VP of a large New York corporation, trades her elegant city condo even-steven to an old Alaska hand for his cabin in the woods and country store - sight unseen - outside Fairbanks. So, looking forward to a simpler life and hoping to find a committed relationship, i.e. husband, Alex arrives in the outback with her dog Bruno to find that the cabin is a one-room hovel with no plumbing or electricity and the store is a scruffy bait shack. But, on the plus side, her nearest neighbor in the woods is the hunky and affluent Michael Casey, who owns his own air freight business and a comfortable mountain house with all the amenities. Since Casey has no desire to marry and is a housekeeping slob, you'd think he and Alex would have nothing in common. But that doesn't take into account hormonal tides.

The storyline follows a simple formula. Tension builds between Casey and Alex to the point that they have tempestuous sex, after which they're mad at each other for awhile. Then the cycle repeats two or three times.

Janet Evaonvich always seems to write such witty and fun stories. This was a hoot and I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. I enjoyed the quirky Alex and I found her to be likeable. The romantic sparks between her and Casey lept off of the page. I look forward to reading much more of Evanovich in the future, as she has become one of my most favorite authors.

Manhunt is a fun, fast, quirky little love tale. Alex,a young woman, makes some major changes in her life, moving across the country from a big city life to the wide open country with the goal being to find the "perfect" husband.

In typical Evanovich style there are a constant series of comical mishaps along the way and in the end Alex discovers that you don't always find what you are looking for...........sometimes you find something even better!!!

Before I start I have to disclose I bought this book by mistake. I love her Stephanie Plum series, and I just assumed her other books were in the same genre (detective/bounty hunter).

I bought Manhunt at an airport bookstore. I got halfway through it before realizing I was reading a romance novel. I don't normally read romance novels but I have nothing against them. Even though they have a stigma of being trashy, there's nothing wrong with them and they are immensely popular.

Manhunt is written in the same lively style as her Stephanie Plub series. Evanovish shows her talent, and the story moves along. What I liked best is the point of view suddenly changes from Alex to Casey and back again suddenly, giving the reader an understanding of what both people are thinking -- which was both entertaining and enlightening since we all know men and women often seem like two completely different species.

As for the downside, the story was a bit insipid. There were no suprises and the plot moved predictably toward the inevitable conclusion. And the passages involving intimacy were largely glossed over or skipped, and not terribly sexy. (At least that's my male perspective.) I found Stephanie Plum's sexual escapades more stimulating.

I trust Evanovich is a popular romance writer, but I think you can do better than Manhunt.
