Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bookish Regina Metcalf isn't the most exciting heroine to ever grace the pages of a romance novel, but compared to her strung-out, back-stabbing sisters, she's certainly the most well-adjusted character in this rollicking comic mystery from Bond (Got Your Number). There's nothing ordinary about the goings-on in Monroeville, N.C., despite the book's familiar premise: three sisters torn apart by a man meet up years later, ostensibly to make amends. Events quickly snowball out of control when Regina learns her elder sister has been shot at; her younger sister has an abusive boyfriend; and her parents are in debt, splitting up and auctioning off the items from their antique store. To top everything off, the man who was convicted of murdering Regina's aunt 20 years earlier has requested a new trial, and the appraiser the bank has sent is sexy, funny and, for some odd reason, interested in Regina. But when an unsavory character with ties to the Metcalfs turns up dead, the sisters are forced to come to terms with a secret from their past and the knowledge that a killer may be after them. Near palpable romantic sparks and whodunit tension hold the reader's interest, and the book's humorous antics leaven an otherwise sober story line. With its energetic prose and cozy Southern setting, this read is a sterling source of laughs and lighthearted fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC BOOK August 29, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love this book. I first read it when I was a teenager, and I always thought it would make a great movie. I bought it again because I lent out my copy and never got it back and I read it again, and it was like meeting the characters for the first time. It is fun and fast and exciting and sexy and sweet. But it's also a murder mystery, so there is a little something for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! September 3, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had thoroughly enjoyed OUR HUSBAND, Stephanie Bond's earlier book, so I expected to like I THINK I LOVE YOU. Yet I more than liked it, I was awed by it.
The story was far more detailed than one expects a genre romance to be. Ms. Bond lets the reader know right from the beginning that she was inspired by the Nancy Drew mysteries of our collective youths, and I THINK I LOVE YOU is very much a Nancy Drew book for the modern woman.
The tension among the three sisters who are the focus of this novel is altogether plausible, and its history is well-explained. The separate plots concerning each of the three sisters also are compelling, and the backstory of small town Southern life is extremely interesting. I was awed by Ms. Bond's imagination and I cannot wait to read the sequel that the final pages of this novel promise already is in the works.

3.0 out of 5 stars An emotional roller coaster ride March 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hated it, I loved it, I liked it, I hated it again, then I liked it again. Let me explain!

Before I begin, it is important to note that this book can be found in the Romance section. Correct me if I am wrong, but for a book to be classified as a Romance, shouldn't the romantic element be the driving force of the story, with all other sub-plots being secondary? Even in a Romantic Suspense, the suspense is secondary to the romantic element. That is not the case in this book. It is not primarily a romance. I'm ok with that because I enjoy a variety of genres, but this will probably bother some readers. It is actually a story about three sisters who witness their aunt's murder at Lover's Lane and decide to never tell anyone. They grow up and go their separate ways. Eventually, they all find their way back home and face the problems that tore them apart. Their knowlege about the murder was discovered and they became targets, but not before the oldest sister is caught sleeping with a married man and is being targeted by his wife. There is a lot of mystery and suspense in the book, but not a lot of romance. In fact, I was disappointed with the middle sister and her relationship with the appraiser. I didn't feel that their relationship was developed well. She was never really very nice to him, and the one time they made love seemed very forced as if the author stuck it in as an afterthought. Still, I give this book three stars, because I enjoy murder mysteries as well as other genres and do not only seek out romance books, but for those of you who primarily read romance, you should be aware that this story does have romantic elements, but they are secondary to the main plot...and could also be viewed as secondary to various sub-plots.

Justine, Regina, and Mica Metcalf are the daughters of a couple that ran an antiques store and never got married.

The summer Justine was 17 Regina was 14 and Mica was 12 they saw the murder of their Uncles wife. The vowed never to talk about it to anyone and they didnt, for 20 years.

That summer a man named Dean came to work for the girls parents. The girls liked him and soon he and Justine were an item. Several years later they were engaged, but then he left to go to California with Mica (whom he had been sleeping with for years)

Many years later Regina, Mica and Justine are back in their small North Carlina home to deal with the bankrupsy and split of their parents.

Soon thought they are dealing with somethig different when Dean comes to town and then turns out dead, and Justine is scared about the deranged wife of a man she slept with. With the help of the man hired to apraise the antiques (who just happens to be a non practicing lawyer)Justine, Mica, and Regina soon learn they need to get along to find out about the death of their Aunt and Dean and figure out if there is a connection between the two.

A very intersting book that has a surprise ending it is hard to put this book down.

1.0 out of 5 stars not funny October 7, 2012
By sue
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't find this book funny at all. "A humorous romantic mystery" didn't describe this book. Petty and mean was how the oldest sister treated the other 2. And where was the romance? Bad description all the way around.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best - But Not the Worst April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Since all of the reviewers here have done such a wonderful job on giving you a synopsis, I will just give you my opinion --->

With silly and several absolutely cruel characters, weak secondary characters, a fairly obvious plot with an even more obvious red herring thrown in,, "I Think I Love You" does not make this one of my favorite Stephanie Bond books. Although it was a very detailed narrative, the characters (most of them) are so disagreeable that I couldn't give this book the consideration I would normally give.

If you are thinking of the three Metcalf sisters like you would the Three Bears --- don't, becasue even the 'just right' sister Regina is annoyingly uber correct at times.

I think one of my mistakes is reading Ms Bonds books nearly back-to-back, since they are all starting to seem to have the same plot, the same characters and the same love scenes!

Thank the goodness of Books that this book was only $2.99 for Kindle owners and free if you have a Prime membership.

More About the Author

Stephanie Bond was several years into a corporate computer programming career when an instructor in her night school MBA program remarked that she had a flair for writing and encouraged her to submit one of her projects to academic journals. "But," Stephanie says, "all I could think was 'I wonder if I could write a romance novel?'" Bond grew up on a farm in eastern Kentucky where the entertainment choices were few. Luckily, she had a beloved aunt who shared her passion for reading. "When she visited once a year, she brought boxes and boxes of gothic novels by Victoria Holt and Phyllis Whitney and lush historical romances--I was in heaven! So suddenly thinking about writing in the genre of the books I loved was very exciting." After writing every spare moment for two years, Stephanie sold her first romantic comedy manuscript, IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. Two years later, she walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 60 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, and Mira Books, and is most well-known for her BODY MOVERS humorous mystery series. Her newest series is TWO GUYS DETECTIVE AGENCY (about two sisters whose last name is Guy). Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.
