4.0 out of 5 stars A quick, fun romp in the hay! 12 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you like simple, fun, sexy romances, then this is the book for you. It's one of Janet Evanovitch's earlier books, written before her best selling Stephanie Plum series, and to some degree, you can tell. It lacks the depth and humour of her later books (not to mention the length), but to be fair, that's nit picking! Taken on it's own merits, this is a fun, screwball comedy romance, which once you pick up and start reading, you won't want to put down.
Enter Alexeandra Scott, city whizz kid, who decides to ditch Manhattan and her high paying job to move to the wilds of Canada in an effort to meet a "nice" man, get married and have kids. Only trouble is, she's bought her new home sight unseen - and to say it's rustic, is putting it mildy - it doesn't even have an indoor bathroom! Thankfully, the guy next door has indoor plumbing, and the fact he's cute doesn't hurt either.
Screwball romance at it's finest!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Blissful Read 30 Mar 2010
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is an absolutely fantastic book and although it is one of Janet's shorter stories it is definitely worth a read.

The main characters are completely lovable and the story beautifully written. Be warned though, I lost a few hours for reading this book from cover to cover but in my opinion this was time well spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Jersey Wilderness Woman Meets Alaska Macho Man!!! 14 Jun 2003
By Jana L. Perskie - Published on Amazon.com
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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute!!! 13 Dec 2005
By T. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Soft porn for the ladies 23 Aug 2006
By Joseph Haschka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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. It's the Battle of the Sexes at its most elemental (and monotonous) interspersed with the occasional humorous episode, as when Alex burns down her new outhouse and almost gets lost in the season's first snowstorm. The narrative also has the interesting perspective of jumping back and forth between the two principals: he thinks and says, she thinks and says. Bruno's thoughts remain unpolled.

MANHUNT is soft porn for the ladies:

"The skirt to her dress had ridden high, exposing the skimpy lace panties. His hand moved across the lace, tracing tantalizing circles. Then his mouth followed the path of his hand and Alex was lost to his touch."

The book's chief usefulness to the average reader is as a time capsule of the author's early writing career as she evolves her characterization and plot development skills to the level of her ongoing and very successful Stephanie Plum series (currently on its twelfth installment), to which I'm addicted.

I think I'm done with Janet's early romances; my manly self-image is suffering from reading this stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast, fun, quirky love tale 8 Feb 2006
By jeanne-scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!!!
