I like her older books for a quick and funny read once in awhile. This one was light, funny, romantic and whimsical. Just what I was in manhynt mood for.
Jul 25, Marianne rated it liked it. Manhunt is a stand-alone pre-Plum romance novel by popular American author, Janet Evanovich. Alexandra Scott had swapped her fancy Princeton condo and her life as a corporate high flier for a cabin in the Alaskan wilderness and a run-down hardware store. There were plenty of single men in Alaska and Alex wanted a husband. The swap was, undoubtedly, less that equitable: But somehow he found himself helping her out anyway.
As a romantic heroine, Alex maintains her silliness throughout the book. Michael seems like the right guy for her Happily Ever After, but he has his own baggage to deal with. This one is a bit slower moving than the Stephanie Plum books, and the premise is really too silly to entertain, but the result is amusing enough to persist to the HEA.
Jan 02, BarbaraW rated it liked it. A sweet quick read about a city girl who tries to put down roots in Alaska. Jan 22, Jimmyjane rated it did not like it Recommended to Jimmyjane by: This was a page lobotomy. I hate to be such a hater, but it literally made my head hurt, it was that ridiculously banal and trite.
I am a huge sucker for the formulaic romance and enjoy the old over-the-top fun romp, but there has to be some emotional investment in the characters for me to give a damn, and this made no effort to provide anything resembling depth. In fact, this little book seemingly reveled in sloshing through the shallowest end of the intelligence pool. The dialogue and inner This was a page lobotomy. The dialogue and inner monologues were daft and woefully outdated and the characters were, at best, complete gibbering morons.
How they managed to walk upright, let alone supposedly survive in the Alaskan wilderness is beyond me. This could all have been overlooked to some degree at least had there been some deliciously hot love scenes.
But anything approaching frisky had all the smolder of a very wet, very dead dog, ended abruptly forget ‘fade to black’; the shutters were slammed shut so fast you had to kiss your fingers goodbyeand referred to with the oh-so-realistic trumpet of “That was glorious!
Should you also possess the mile-wide masochistic streak I apparently do, as I read through to the end, have at it. But keep sharp implements out of reach, because eyes are handy for activities other than reading and you might forget that halfway through this delightful novel.

Look, usually these Janet Evanovich romance novels make me super ragey and I end up throwing them across the room because they’re squicky and misogynistic. In contrast, this one was totally cheesy and totally predictable but actually not that terrible in comparison?? Essentially, a 29 year old woman is sick of her corporate life, and somehow ends up deciding to do a swap with some old guy she barely knows.
She takes her dead grandfather’s enormous, overweight Rottweiler with her, and obviously meets a cute guy when said Rottweiler dives for a doughnut on the ferry and ends up in the water. Cute Guy turns out to be her next door neighbour, and has a house with all mod cons, which is super convenient because the cabin she bought turns out to have no electricity or running water, it’s infested with mice, and she manages to burn down the outhouse. Definitely had moments of ” But far less than a lot of Evanovich’s other romance novels.
So essentially, it wasn’t great. But it could have been so much worse. Feb 21, Nancy H rated it really liked it. This is a quick, quirky read that will keep you laughing as you turn the pages.
The main character knows what she wants and goes after it, even into the wilds of Alaska. Sep 13, Jen rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really enjoy this book. Of all of Janet Evanovich ‘s early romantic comedies, this one is probably my favorite.
It’s because it’s set in Alaska. I really love stories set in Alaska. Alaska is a place I’ve visited once twice if you count the layover I had at the airport in Anchorage, but that visit doesn’t really count and dream of living in one day.
I have just got to experience one of their long and cold winters. I love Bruno, the overweight Rottweiler, too. I’m not sure what it is, but it just doesn’t move me in the same way that, for instance, Jennifer Crusie ‘s Manhunting does.
When I think of Janet Evanovich’s early romantic comedies, invariably this is the book that comes to mind. And I do love it, but I never feel like I can wax on and on about it in the same way I can about Jennifer Crusie’s early romantic comedies.
I will shelve it on my Favorites shelf, though. After all, it is my favorite of JE’s early romantic comedies. I’ll share a couple of them: First, on page 9, we have the scene where Bruno is resisting Alex’s efforts to get him to walk with her while they wait for the ferry’s departure bell, so she brandishes a doughnut and, seeing it, Bruno jumps her.
He knocks her into the pier’s railing, the doughnut flies out of her hand into the water, and “without a moment’s hesitation Bruno jumped the rail in pursuit. That crazy broad just deep-sixed her dog! She sent him sailing off to fetch The Big One.
He didn’t have an answer for “Oh, pooh. It’s when Alex has been out with Bubba Johanssen: Five hours later, Casey heard Alex stomping the snow off her boots on the deck and quickly buried his nose in the mystery he was reading. He’d been on page fifty-seven for two hours and didn’t have a clue what it said. I just don’t LOVE -love it. It will probably always be my go-to Janet Evanovich book, but it will never be the first book I think of when I think of romantic comedies, or even when I think of stories set in Alaska.

That honor goes to Northern Lights by Nora Robertswhich is a romantic suspense set in Alaska that I really, really, love. But Manhunt is definitely a fun, quick, read and I know I’ll revisit it again – multiple times – in the years to come.
