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!

Janet Evanovich's "Smokin Seventeen" Excerpt

Janet has released an excerpt from her new book, 'Smokin' Seventeen' going on sale June 21, 2011.


Where there's smoke there's fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum.

Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie's name is on the killer's list.

Short on time to find evidence proving the killer's identity, things get even more complicated for Stephanie when family and friends decide it's time for her to decide between long-time off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop, Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert, Ranger. Stephanie's mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both, and choose a former high school football star who has just returned to town. Stephanie's sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir "bake-off". And Grandma Bella, Morelli's old world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts "the eye" on Stephanie.

With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie's life looks like it's about to go up in smoke.

So, what do you think, guys? Does it sound like a hit?


  1. Wow, "Boudoir bakeoff", I love it! I read the excerpt earlier this morning. Very cute, IMO. But, it takes a lot for Janet to disappoint me. Anywhoo, I think it sounds like hit. I always look forward to June :)

  2. this waiting til the summer thing is just torturous and now a teaser... this is just inhumane. I need my Ranger fix like yesterday... I guess I better start reading the series again starting at book one.


  3. I agree, Heidi. I can't wait. Now we have 2 things to look forward to in June!

  4. Grandma Mazur VS Bella......I want a front row seat! Lula can be the ref. I'm glad we will have the movie to break up the long wait until Smokin Seventeen!!

  5. She won't decide, Janet will keep dragging us along, forever. LOL Steph will be single and having her cake and eating it too, for the rest of her life. :) I can't wait for it to come out. My hubby got me a kindle for my upcoming birthday, so I'm going to upload that one for sure. Plus I'm buying the hardback. I collect them all in hardback. My birthday is the 11th, so send us some good news on that day, okay? Hugs, Patt
