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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Silly book

I bought this because I had never listened to Janet Evanovich. The main female character in this book was so ditzy I almost stopped listening and would have if it hadn't been only 5 hours. Unbelievable character development and too fast relationship. This one would be good to have on while vacuuming the house so you don't mind missing half of it. I am a romance fan, so that was not the problem. I just really did not like the main character!

Fun light read

This is a fun book that will interest you on a lazy day. Not a bad book and not a "WOW" book. It's a good easy listen.

Predictable

Not as good as Evanovich's later works but is ok for an afternoon read.
