Detailed Plot Synopsis of Got Your Number

ISBN: 0312976909

    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.
