When Kate gets there, she slowly becomes disillusioned with her plan but continues on through hilarious situations and a funny problem that Kate discovers about herself. But what sold the book was combining all of that with some truly laugh-out-loud moments—and I don’t mean the slapstick though that wasn’t out of place, either, really, even though I’m not usually a fan.
His attachment to Toby’s Corner was endearing, even while his lay about lifestyle is mildly off-putting. This whole book is so beautiful. And her little friend at the resort was an idiot.
The men Kate dates are all over the place in a good way. As her search for Mr. What could go wrong goes wrong for every man who tries to get close to the heroine, finally the hero tries his luck.
Kate and Jake and those around them were witty and in situations that were rife with emotional byplay and that was fertile ground for Crusie to mine for humor.
But instead of meeting a decent hard-working man Kate only finds more losers at the resort. She is determined to get married. Oct 31, Isabella rated it it was cgusie Shelves: She’s already been engaged 3 times and never married. The conflict is believable and never feels contrived and the book doesn’t get weighed down with subplots.
This isn’t as cold and calculated as it sounds, it’s just how she was raised. There are times when I crave a night of romantic comedies.
Some insecurity with the H and h. Let me tell you, that moment is worth the wait! With crrusie exception of a couple of tiny distractions moustachethere isn’t much here to make you feel anything but good.
There were good parts – the dialogue, especially between the romantic leads, sparkled and the leads themselves sizzled from time to time, and there wasn’t a vampire or werewolf in sight – but much of the rest was rather uneven, and I often felt like I was being told what was happening, manhunging than being shown the manhuntng dictum being “show, don’t tell”.
Kate is armed with a plan and Jake does not fit the plan, but you know what they say about plans, right?
Feb 12, Ally rated it really liked it Shelves: Jun 26, CatBookMom rated it liked it Shelves: It’s sometimes in a tie for first place in my affections, but usually it’s my very-close-second favorite, as I think I always read Getting Rid of Bradley first.

Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie — All About Romance
Her job bores her, her breasts are starting to droop and she’s given up on love after dating a string of losers who only want her for her money. He’s so not what Kate is looking for. The way the story is written is very easy to read and makes you go through the book very quickly, but at the same time it is so fun to read that it is good that you get through it fast because you just can’t wait to read on and know what happens next. A Sensuality Warm Book Type: And I never tire of it.

Even at the end. That right there should tell you something. Cute, fluffy, and predictable, this is very definitely early Crusie. The characters all of them were well done, the writing was hilarious without being slap-stick, and the dialog was sharp and witty.
Manhunting is a five star read if there ever was one. Sure, it’s Jennifer Cruise.
Manhunting meets all of our chick-lit requirements! This book was a total hoot because it had two characters who practiced self-delusion perfectly, the heroine with her corporate life and three engagements she broke off, who wanted to have a companion, someone smart and successful and definitely not like the hero Jake who does nothing, ever since he quit his job as a tax attorney in the city and invested all his money in the resort run by his brother and that is where these two meet.
There are also a small handful of mannunting characters who help create a warm feeling of friendship without overpowering the main love story in this short cursie. His easygoing personality and his genuine drusie for the heroine made for a winning combination.
She needed a good man. Kate comes up with her plan of what the perfect man will be, and Jessie sends her out to a resort in the middle of nowhere in a small town to find that perfect man. Kate comes up with her plan of what the perfect man will be, and Jessie sends her out Highly entertaining!! And while the overall idea that people fall in love within a week and just overturn their entire life after that is very far fetched for me it is still a wonderful and very entertaining read!
