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.

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 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?' "

She spent every spare moment the next couple of years writing and submitting manuscripts before selling her romantic comedy IRRESISTIBLE? to Harlequin books. After selling ten projects in two years, Stephanie walked away from her corporate career to write commercial fiction full time. To date, she's published over 70 romance and mystery projects with Random House, St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins, Mira Books, and more recently, under her own imprint.

Stephanie's independently published romantic comedy STOP THE WEDDING!, a Kindle bestseller in three languages, is currently in development at The Hallmark Channel for a 2-hour movie.

Stephanie lives in midtown Atlanta and is probably working on a story at this very moment.

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.

This is my first Stephanie Bond book but it won't be my last. This is the kind of book I love. . .hunky, alpha-type hero, smart heroine, complicated but well defined characters, a smart story line, a mystery that is actually difficult to figure out, action, humor, sexy love scene. . .Hey! This one has it all! A definite keeper and I can't wait to order OUR HUSBAND and any other book I can find by SB. Great!

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 Roxann�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.

Out of all of the books I've read by Ms Bond, "Got Your Number" has the least likable characters than any of her other books.

One cousin is jilted at the alter and that would be Angora (?) the other cousin Roxann is a woman on a mission. A mission to save battered women and their children from husbands that have not lost their visiting privileges. Although they are from the same family they are as dissimilar as salt water and chocolate milk. Angora from a life of privilege and Roxann from a life where her mother couldn't bother to see her after she got her divorce from Roxann's father.

Roxznn decides to leave town for a little while because a policeman is trying to get her to tell him where one of her "clents" is hiding out. She leaves town to go to her cousins wedding and one angora is jilted at the alter Roxann and Angora decide to revisit their college for its homecoming weekend. Things go very much down-hill and they are soon implicated in a murder of a man they both had desired back in there college days.

Since this is one of Ms Bonds early works, and the author has yet to find her style that we've all come to love, I am finding the characters (all of them) to be less than sympathetic and much less humor than any of her later novels. The usual plot that tends to have girlfriends on shaky ground, come to appreciate each other is just not ringing true in this book.
What little romance there is just doesn't come off as believable for me; but I can see from this attempt that this book may be the one in which the romantic aspect is the one she (ms Bond) will use for all her other books. It is just that later books the technique is refined and not so 'slap-in-your-face-ish'

I would save my cash and buy one of Ms Bond's later works. They are more refined and a lot more interesting.

This is an easy read full of interesting characters and unique twists. The main character is a fun mix of smart, insecure and escapism. It takes most of the plot for her to understand that her basic understanding of men and relationships is flawed because of deceptions in her parent's relationship. It leads to attractions to all the wrong sort of men and to an inability to accept masculinity. Her cousin also is deceived about self-worth and this leads her into failed relationships as well. The plot of two ladies driving to escape their circumstances only to find themselves in a murder is a pretty good twist.
Some of the situations are far fetched and some of the dialogue is stilted. There also are some formatting issues with the dialogue which makes it a bit harder to understand who is talking. In the end when girls are being investigated, time stretches beyond reality. This make the ending of the book much weaker than the beginning which is unfortunate as it leaves the whole story feeling weak.
Overall a fun read with several unbelievable circumstances and some good insights into character
