Publisher's summary

"Alexandra Scott, Alaskan Wilderness Woman". It had a terrific ring to it, but Alex felt a sudden twinge of uncertainty. She'd traded in her Wall Street job and fancy condo for a rundown cabin in the woods and a bait and tackle store. She'd wanted to escape the rat race and to go husband hunting where men outnumbered women four to one, but was she ready for the challenge?

Then she spotted Michael Casey, a sexy pilot who was undaunted by disaster, had hero written all over him, and was a confirmed bachelor. Michael Casey was the man she had come to Alaska to hunt, and Alexandra Scott had him in her sights.

Worst book to date.

I have been a member of Audible for over a year, and purchased many, many books. This one was a true waste. Although the reviews for this book were not good, I wanted a mindless story and the price was right, but as it turned out this story was less than mindless. The plot and characters are totally ridiculous and the reader was even worse. Save your money.

Lots of Fun

This is an incredibly fun romp. Jersey girl goes to Alaska to find a husband with her overweight dog. Ends up meeting the man of her dreams. However, needs to live in cabin with an outhouse to prove it.

This is a light, laugh a minute story that will leave cars next to you wondering what you're smiling about.

Strongly recommended to all Evanowich fans. This is BY FAR the best of her earlier works. It has the same witty dialog that makes her current books so popular.

The price was right

If you are an Evanovich fan, which I am, this is a typical story line from her earlier writings. The price makes the read worth it and the story makes the time on the treadmill a bit more tolerable.

This must have been one of Janet's first book

I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan! This is by far the worst book I've purchased. The story was predictable and very slow.

The narrator had the tone of voice you'd use to rad a book to an audience of 5 year olds.

Don't waste your money or time on this one.

Not a great story

I've read a lot of her books and did not enjoy this book at all. It's almost like the author writes the same romance stories but uses different characters and names. I'll still read her books, but will be more careful what books I buy.

Funny

Predictable but very funny book read by C. J. Critt. We found ourselves laughing out loud at the antics of the various characters. If you like the Stephanie Plum books you will certainly like this earlier book by Janet Evanovich.

Not the best of Evanovich.

You can tell this was written by Evanovich before she struck gold with Stephanie Plum. The story is flat and one dimensional. There are really only 2 characters until the middle of the story and the additional characters really were just part of the background and scenery. There are no subplots. No cliffhangers. However, the story holds your attention and keeps you entertained. CJ Critt is again, an amazing narrator. Definitely worth a listen, but don't expect to remember this story later. It is utterly forgettable.

Note: I really hated how Alex's only real goal was to find a husband and I hated how she announced it to Casey. And kept announcing it. Annoyingly. We get it, she wants a family. Her behavior was weak and tacky. But I guess since this story was written in the 80's that makes a little more sense than it does for today.

Narrator Too Theatrical

The narrator reads this book like an old episode of I Love Lucy. It would’ve been a 5 star for sure if it was read like that.
