Q: Who is Stephanie Plum?
A: Stephanie Plum is a kick-ass bounty hunter who works for her slimy cousin Vinnie Plum at his bail bonds agency. She's hard on cars and men. *g*

Q: Where do the stories take place?
A: In Trenton, NJ.

Q: Who is Joe Morelli?
A: Joe Morelli is Stephanie's on again, off again boyfriend. He's a former bad boy, now vice cop.

Q: Who is Ranger?
A: Ranger is Stephanie's fellow bounty hunter and tutor. Ranger loves Stephanie "in his own way" but isn't the marrying type.

Q: Who is Grandma Mazur?
A: Grandma Mazur is Stephanie's maternal grandmother. She's quite the pip!

Q: What are Tastykakes?
A: Tastykakes have been made in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 1914. They're yummy little treats along the lines of Little Debbie -- but oh, so much better. The deliciousness of Tastykakes is a regional thing -- they're only shipped as far as freshness will allow.

Q: What are Cheese Doodles
A: They're a cheese-flavored corn snack made by Wise Foods, similar to Frito's Cheetos. Wise is also a regional company, or at least it used to be, so Stephanie Plum would be familiar with their yummy goodness.

Q: Who can join plum_lovin?
A: Anyone who is interested in reading and discussing the books.

Q: Can I still join even if I haven't read the books before?
A: Oh course! The more the merrier. You can even join if we're half way through the series. Just post your thoughts on the appropriate threads.

Q: Do I have to read the series in order?
A: Well, no, but it might be best if you want character history. Otherwise you can just go to either Janet's site or Wikipedia to catch up.
