Welcome

Welcome to my own little corner of cyberspace for all things Stephanie Plum and much, much more. I absolutely love - Okay, I'm completely obsessed with- Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series. After diligent searching for anything Plum on the internet, I discovered that the Stephanie 411 was next to nil. So this is my own little contribution to the lingerie buyer turned bounty hunter world of Stephanie Plum whose lot in life is to choose between two blindingly delicious, strong, sexy men; escape the occasional car fire; and refrain from the temptations of a delectible boston creme donut threatening to widen her waistline.

Welcome to Stephanie's Obsession! Please Enjoy!

How Many Cars has Stephanie Destroyed?

This question was raised recently in one of my blog comments, and a Stephanie's Obsession reader was kind enough to answer this question up to book #14!!

This SO reader put a lot of work into this, and I think her comments are halarious so I am putting this list in it's own post. I hope this anonymous person doesn't mind. I'm not sure why but this comment didn't show up on the comments section where they posted it, but I think it deserves it's own post anyway!  Here they are...get ready to giggle:
"ONE FOR THE MONEY

Mazda Miata - Repossessed by Lenny Gruber.

Chevy Nova - Left for dead, which is OK since it had already been vandalized and had no muffler, tailpipe or radio.

Joe's Cherokee - According to the morning paper, "unexplained explosion".

TWO FOR THE DOUGH

Jeep Wrangler - Stolen in front of The House of Eternal Slumber.

THREE TO GET DEADLY

Baby Nissan Pickup - Bad carburetor since day one. High school kids called it a "fartmobile". Finally met it's maker in the form a of a rocket launcher. Blown to pieces. R.I.P. baby pickup.

FOUR TO SCORE

CRX - Soaked in gasoline and ignited by a discarded cigarette butt from Mrs. Nowicki.

Lula's Firebird - Blown up with the CRX. That's what you get for parking next to Stephanie.

HIGH FIVE

Porsche Boxter - Sideswiped by a garbage truck and later exploded into flames.

Garbage Truck - Parked next to Boxter. Blew up and then fell on what remained of the Boxter.

BMW - Stolen, but thief was kind enough to leave the plates and registration number.

HOT SIX

Honda Civic - Fire started from wacky tobacky use by Mooner and Reefer.

Rollswagon - A few dents, but mostly too embarrassing for even Stephanie to drive.

Mitchell and Habib's Lincoln - Not really Stephanie's fault. Car was trashed by Morris Munson driving like a maniac in his Crown Victoria.

Carpet Car - Caught on fire from flaming dog poop in a bag.

SEVEN UP

Honda CRV - Crumpled up like an accordion by DeChooch in a Cadillac.

HARD EIGHT

Honda CRV - Fire bombed by a rabbit.

Honda CRV - Same rabbit doused the CRV in starter fluid and lit a match to it.

Ranger's Truck - Went up in flames from a package tossed into the bed. Probably the same rotten rabbit.

VISIONS OF SUGAR PLUMS

Honda CRV- Ignited by an incredibly dry Christmas tree and consumed in the fire.

TEN BIG ONES

Ford Escape - Made it through To the Nines, only to be fire bombed by Red Devil Robber at the beginning of Ten Big Ones.

$200 Lincoln Town Car - Sprayed with graffiti and shot to bits by The Slayers.

ELEVEN ON TOP

Stephanie's Saturn SL - Car bomb set off when Mama Macaroni turned the ignition.

Joe's SUV (make unmentioned) - Blew up with his garage.

TWELVE SHARP

No cars were destroyed in Twelve Sharp. Instead she went through some men.

Joe Morelli - Got beat up rescuing Stephanie and Lula from a bar brawl.

Tank - Took one to the "the boys" while trying to help apprehend the old lady who works at the Pleasure Treasure.

Ranger - Took a few bullets to the chest (was wearing a vest) while playing decoy to capture Scrog.

PLUM LOVIN'

Diesel's (possibly hot) Corvette- Smashed through a hedge and into a topiary column. It was driveable afterward, but would never be the same.

BETWEEN TWELVE SHARP AND LEAN MEAN THIRTEEN

Mini Cooper - Traded it with her sister Valerie for an Escape, because it was too hard to get the bad guys in the back of the Cooper.

Ford Escape - Tree fell on it.

LEAN MEAN THIRTEEN

Crown Vic - After having the back window blown out and a squirrel explode all over the inside, it is left for dead on the side of the road.

PLUM LUCKY

Monte Carlo (with no reverse) - Destroyed by Lula with a rocket launcher.

FEARLESS FOURTEEN

Maroon Econoline Van- Not really Stephanie's, but caught her bad car juju anyway. Struck by a russet potato and exploded, as predicted by Gary-the-Stalker.

PLUM SPOOKY

Jeep Wranger- Defiled by an infestation of raccoons in the Pine Barrens.

Rangeman SUV- Exploded by a rocket.

someone needs to count fifteen and sixteen"

  4. Thanks for this list. I am plowing through the plum series and had a bit of confusion as to how she went from a Mini back to an Escape between reading 'Twelve Sharp' and 'Plum Lovin'.

    Sorry to se that the interest in listing lapsed. i hope that isn't indicative of the series because I am LOVING' Steph, Ranger, Joe, Grandma, Lula and all of the other characters in this series
