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. She was headed there in her candy-apple red BMW sports car with her grandfather’s Rottweiler, Bruno. There were plenty of single men in Alaska and Alex wanted a husband.
The swap was, undoubtedly, less that equitable: the cabin was run-down and very basic; the hardware store, much the same. Michael Casey had already encountered the ditsy female when he tried to rescue Bruno from drowning off the Juneau docks, so he wasn’t pleased to see Alex moving in to the cabin down the hill. 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.
