Years ago, a co-worker introduced me to the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. For several years I enjoyed it then it got repetitive and I stopped reading. But, the early books had some good quotes and choosing only one is difficult. This is from "High Five", which is also book five.

"Uh oh," Lula said. "All the king's horses and all the king's men aren't gonna put that Porsche back together again." 
"I don't get it," the driver said. "It was only a scratch. I hardly scraped against your car. Why would it explode like that?"
"That's what her cars do," Lula said. "They explode. But I gotta tell you this was the best. This here's the first time she exploded a garbage truck. One time her truck got hit with an antitank missile. That wasn't bad either, but it couldn't compare to this."

I hauled the cell phone out of my bag and dialed Morelli.

  1. Oh my. Her poor cars! I always mourn cars in movies, tv shows and books :D

  2. LOL I loved those early ones. I made it to around 15 I think then stopped grabbing them until I see them at the thrift store. She was really hell on cars for sure. Whew.

    1. That's about where I stopped reading I think. The early ones were so darn funny.

  3. LOL exploding cars! Oh the poor car =(
