Manhunting. Kate’s search for Mr. Right is a lot harder since she’s spending so much time with Mr. Wrong. Kate Svenson may be a dynamite. “Planning on jumping? I wouldn’t. Blood’s hell to get out of silk.” “I’m just checking the weather,” Kate Svenson said patiently and continued to stare out her. “You’ve been engaged three times in the past three years and not one of them could keep you.” Manhunting was not Jenny’s title and she’s never liked it (it was .

Love Jennifer Cruises books Jack Vasen Kindle is how I read it. See 2 questions about Manhunting…. Lists with This Book. Feb 16, Bark rated it it was amazing Shelves: Manhunting is a five star read if there ever was one.
If you’re feeling blah and want a good laugh – along with a wonderful romance – you can’t get better than this! Kate Svensen is thirty-five, gorgeous and has a successful career.
She’s the kind of heroine we all love to hate. But wait a minute this is a Crusie heroine after all and not your standard perfectly coifed heroine. Kate may be more successful than most of us ever dream of becoming but she’s also insecure and more than a l Manhunting is a five star read if there ever was one.
Kate may be more successful than most of us ever dream of becoming but she’s also insecure and more than a little bit unhappy. 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.
Despite this Kate still wants a husband, a compatible husband who is as successful and driven as she is.
Desert Isle Keeper
And what better place to find him than at an exclusive golf resort catering to singles? But instead of meeting a decent hard-working man Kate only finds more losers at the resort. The trip isn’t a total bust however because she does meet Jake and the two strike up an instant friendship. Jake is beautiful and they have a ton of fun together. But he’s also totally unmotivated, admittedly lazy, and just about the slowest moving person Kate has ever come across. He’s so not what Kate is looking for.
Jake had been married to a cold, self-centered woman and now wants to settle down with a nice, dumb bimbo who thinks he’s cruse end-all be-all of her world. But the two are honest with each other and begin spending a lot of time together because they believe they are “safe” with each other. All their well-laid plans are blown to shreds when love takes over and then the fun really begins!
Manhunting is a classic Jennifer Crusie tale filled with humorous situations, tons of witty dialogue that is simply about two people who love spending time together. The conflict is believable and never feels contrived and the book doesn’t get weighed down with subplots. There are a few great secondary characters who add to the fun but never take over the spotlight.
Jun 12, Diana rated it really liked it. There are times when I crave a night of romantic comedies. Manhunting fulfills this hunger in book form. Is it for everyone? For those of you that adore a cute little love story, this is it! I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t read any chick lit lately, but I let my emotions rush with Kate the main character. I guess I was in that type of mood.

There’s the cutest note at the front of this book jennifrr says it’s her first and a favorite as a result. I can totally see why. Jake is cool enough besides the name, I mean and I really liked how His attachment to Toby’s Corner was endearing, even while his lay about lifestyle is mildly off-putting. His brother, Will, helped that a bit as their relationship and shared insights into Jake actively showed us that he had more depth This is her first novel?!?
His brother, Will, helped that a bit as their relationship and shared insights into Jake actively showed us that he had more depth than might appear on the surface. But I really liked Kate. She’s a hot mess of contradictions, a high-profile career woman looking for a man to settle down with without settling downand that’s just for a start.
I really liked her learning to parse her own interior preferences and emotional landscape, even as she’s trying to figure out the men around jennider. But what sold the book was combining all of that with some truly manhuntinv moments—and I don’t mean the slapstick though that wasn’t out of place, either, really, crusif though I’m not usually a fan. Kate and Jake crusid 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.
This was a solid four stars, but the humor bumped my entertainment up to a stretched, but valid, five. I can’t believe this is her first published book. A note about Steamy: On the high side of mild with two and a half explicit scenes and a few flirty episodes of varying degrees of sexy. She needed a good man. Someone to love and accept her for who she was. Some insecurity with the H and h. Silly antics with stupid-goofy moments.
Crisp dialog that sparkles at select times.
Wonderful chemistry and enjoyable secondary characters. At times, manhuntng romances have reminded me of Kristan Higgins’ stories. View all 9 comments. Apr 21, Cyndi rated it really liked jsnnifer. Lucy McGillicuddy looks for a husband. What could go wrong goes wrong for every man who tries to get close to the heroine, finally the hero tries his luck. That by itself would have made a good story but Crusie steps it up a pace with angst and true love pushing itself forward.
Jun 26, CatBookMom rated it liked it Shelves: Stretching this to 3 stars.
Cute, maybe a little too cute. Not as good as Maybe This Time. Jan 19, Carrie rated it really liked it Shelves: I loved every minute of it. The characters all of them were well done, the writing was hilarious without being slap-stick, and the dialog was sharp and witty.
I only wish it was twice as long! However, I didn’t care for parts of Fast Women too cynical about marriage and I have attempted and not finished Welcome to Temptation twice.
After reading Manhunting, I’ll definitely be g 4. After reading Manhunting, I’ll definitely be giving more of Ms. Crusie’s books a try, and I might even go back to the highly praised Welcome to Temptation.
