Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie

This was a new author to me. I'd read another book by her a few weeks ago that made me look for more. I like the other one (Bet Me) better, it had a little more humor in it then this one.

Don't get me wrong, this one was good too but not as humorous...or at least not to me.
Kate Svenson is attractive, successful, a brilliant businesswoman-and miserable. After three failed engagements, she realizes it's time for a PLAN - an organized, detailed agenda with a clear goal: finding Mr. Right. The Cabins resort is ripe with eligible bachelors, all rich distinguished, and ambitious - just her type. And they're dropping like flies around her... at least, that's how Jake Templeton views the situation. After he's stuck pulling her latest reject out of the swimming pool. Jake's convinced this femme fatale is trouble. Especially for him. But can a man who's sworn off ambition for good and a woman hanging from the top of the corporate ladder find common ground in the unpredictable territory called the heart, where the word proposal takes on a very different meaning...?

Manhunting is the first novel I ever wrote and I love it. Its full of flaws, theres some headhopping, theres probably infodump although I tried to edit it out, but I dont care,
I love it. I still think those scenes on the lake are hysterical, and the dates, well, I was on a roll there, especially the mashed potato date, that one still kills fifteen years later. (Why no, Im not modest. Whats the point?) And the best friend, Jessie is the first best friend I ever wrote and I … well, you know. I love this book.

Now I'm reading Bungalow 2 by Danielle Steel. I've read several of her books years ago then it seemed like they were all the same so I quit reading her until my husband kept mentioning Amazing Grace a few months ago when I was trying to remember the new books I'd seen at Sam's Club ;). So anyways, that is what I'm reading now.
