I Think I Love You by Stephanie Bond

I Think I Love You by Stephanie Bond Purchase:

    The mystery was not easily solved with several suspects and plenty of motive. The story was unravelled with perfect pace and kept me in suspense wanting to turn the page.

     

    Twenty years ago, the Metcalf sisters witnessed a murder and formed a pact of silence. Now they’re estranged and scattered because they all fell in love with the same man.

    When the sisters converge at their childhood home, old wounds are laid open against the backdrop of liquidating their parents’ antiques business. And when the playboy who broke up their family shows up, things go from bad to worse!

    Review by HeyJudy:

    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.

    There’s romance, mystery and conflict.

    Three sisters who haven’t spoken to each other in years. The classic middle sister that is always trying to sort out the conflicts between the other two. The bulk of the story revolves around the girls witnessing their aunt’s murder when they were young and the troublesome man that has plagued all of the girls at one time or another.

    The mystery was not easily solved with several suspects and plenty of motive. The story was unravelled with perfect pace and kept me in suspense wanting to turn the page.

    The characters were intricate with layers that made them more human. Really loved this one.

    Review by Arianne:

    I very much liked the setting and characters of the story. I was able to relate with the sisters, since I also have two other sisters who sometimes can’t bear to see one another and yes, oftentimes, want to grab each other’s throats. But despite the animosity we sometimes feel for each other, we can’t deny the fact that we are of the same blood and that we really love one another and would do anything to protect our family. Much like Justine, Mica and Regina.

    A quick recap of the three main characters: Justine, the eldest in the brood, an office girl who goes after married men. In short, a bitch. LOL. Next is Regina, the level headed sister who tried her best to stop her parents’ divorce. And lastly, Mica, the hair model who was living in with her boyfriend, who was formerly engaged to Justine. Dysfunctional, huh? You bet, they were a bunch of crazy girls.

    But, it was Regina’s attempts to unravel the mystery of a murder in the past and finding a key that might be connected to them kept me entertained. There was a believable plot, good mystery with romance. This is a very good quick read and perfect to those who love to guess “who done it” mysteries. As usual Stephanie Bond delivered a satisfying read
