Manhunting, by Jennifer Crusie

Cover ImageFinished audio 10-25-09, rating 3/5, Romance, pub. 2007

Kate is a successful in her career, but disappointed in her love life.  A friend convinces her to spend some time at the Cabins resort where eligible men and women go to meet.  When Kate arrives she has no problem finding the men, but has a problem with the quality of men she’s meeting.  And handyman Jake isn’t helping her feel any better about herself with his rude and judgemental comments.

As Kate becomes more involved in the small town she finds that she will be sad to leave, man or no.  And when Jake proves to be the most eligible man, Kate must reassess her goals for being there.

I love Jennifer Crusie, with her humor and wit, but this book didn’t do it for me.  It was light and fun, but I was not caught up in the story.  In the interest of full disclosure, I did listen to this during the read-a-thon last week between the hours of 11pm -6am, so my judgment may not be 100% accurate 🙂  I would not hesitate to recommend other Crusie books.

This was a library copy.

    Since you listened to it after a full day of reading and still enjoyed it some, I’d be willing to give it a try.

    It’s hard to know how much of my discontent with the book was real or caused by an overworked brain 🙂

    I think I have read one of her books but wasn’t overly excited about it. It was still a fun read, though. 🙂

    I think this might me the first one I’ve read. I know I’ve listened to several in the car and they were perfect for that.
