To call the estrangement between the Metcalf sisters a family feud is an understatement. They've been seriously at odds ever since bad boy Dean Haviland proposed to Justine, attempted to seduce Regina and ran off with Mica. The battling sibs are forced back home when their folks announce they're separating and must auction off the family business.

Besides an attraction to that louse Dean, the sisters also share a deep dark secret. They witnessed the murder of their aunt many years ago. While the sisters could not identify the killer, they also did not come forward and tell the authorities. Now years later they are all back and the man convicted of killing their aunt is demanding a new trial. On top of that, Dean shows up. Can things get any more complicated? Oh yes!

Stephanie Bond's is really on a roll. I THINK I LOVE YOU cements her reputation as an author who delivers irony, humor and turmoil in ample amounts. (Jul., 384 pp., $6.99)
