Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Gutsy Roxann Beadleman, a volunteer for an underground organization that helps abused wives escape from their husbands, needs to be rescued herself. She's being hunted by Frank Cape, a smarmy PI who wants his wife and child back, and by Joe Capistrano, a rugged police detective whose partner was shot by Cape. Joe intends to find Melissa, Cape's wife, and have her testify against her husband, but Roxann refuses to cooperate, fearful that the police won't be able to protect Melissa. When Roxann receives an invitation to her cousin Angora's wedding, she seizes the opportunity to flee town. Unfortunately, her cousin is jilted at the altar and, against her better judgment, Roxann agrees to accompany Angora to their college reunion in South Bend, Ind. En route, the former roommates have an unnerving run-in with Cape, but Joe steps in just in time. Although Roxann insists that she doesn't need his help or his affection, she quickly changes her mind when she and Angora are accused of murdering their theology professor. This lighthearted whodunit is only Bond's second single-title romance (after Our Husband), but fans of Susan Anderson and Jane Graves will warm to her lively prose. Bond fills her story with enough witty repartee, red herrings and romance to keep readers guessing.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're in Love? May 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, but it's not much of a romance. It's full of sexy and sinister secrets, compelling hints and lots of humor. I found Roxann and Joe completely likeable and respectable. Unfortunately, there is such a little part in this book for Joe and she is so good at blocking the few advances he makes that when she and Joe fall in love, you find yourself asking, "Where was I?" But buy the book, anyway. Stephanie Bond moves the story forward at a good clip and with firm control, keeping you reading and wondering and feeling fairly satisfied that all the pieces of her complex puzzle fit so nicely together. All but the romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Characters March 19 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Roxanne and her dimwitted cousin, Angora, are very well drawn. You can get frustrated with bimbo Angora, but it makes perfect sense for her to be the way she is with her shallow, overbearing mother and superficial "country club" lifestyle. Love the pictures the author draws of Angora and her mom!
Capistrano is a delicious character, as well, and Roxanne's vacillation is very believable, given the hunkiness of this detective and the non-self-acceptance of Roxanne.
There were a few flaws, like when Roxanne dumps coffee on Capistrano and gets fired from her waitressing job. First of all, this is more than a firing offence, it's assualt & battery! Secondly, Capistrano wouldn't yelp, then brush it off, jogging alongside Roxanne not long after. Still, the characters grab you and keep you going!

5.0 out of 5 stars A comedic romp Sept. 24 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Biloxi, Mississippi, though not talking to her father except for funerals, Roxann Beadleman enjoys volunteer work to help wives with abusive husbands. Soon something goes wrong, threats begin to happen, and Detective Joe Capistrano begins asking her questions. Deciding to run away, she attends her cousin Angora Ryder's wedding in Baton Rouge feeling that it is a safe house because everyone knows the strain between Roxann and her family. However, the marriage does not occur as the groom leaves Angora waiting by herself at the altar. Humiliated Angora persuades Roxann to let her join her on the lam. The idea is bad, but having company is appealing so Roxann acquiesces. The twosome flee to their college.

However running from one murder leaves Roxann in the middle of another homicide. Like the killer, Joe is closing in on the two women and he especially wants to keep Roxann safe for about five or so decades because he is falling in love with her just as she is with him.

Though one must wonder about some of Roxannï¿s decisions and those of Angora too, GOT YOUR NUMBER grabs her fans with its thirties-like comedic romantic suspense. The story line is loaded with twists as the two female leads fall in and out of one dilemma after another. Joe is a heroic hunk struggling between love and duty. Stephanie Bond provides readers with that rare humorous yet suspense laden novel that leaves the audience wanting more from a delightful author.
