Stephanie Plum’s apartment is central to series. This page is a place for me to log facts we learn throughout the series about the apartment, the building, and its residents.

This page is a work-in-progress, and will be updated as I continue re-reading the series. It was last updated on August 5th 2019, at which point I was on Book 5.

Stephanie’s apartment

Stephanie lives on the second floor of a three-story building. Her apartment faces the parking lot behind the building.

I have one bedroom, one bath, a small kitchen, and a living room that combines with the dining area. My bathroom looks like it came off the set from The Partridge Family, and due to temporarily strained finances my furniture could be described as eclectic–which is a snooty way of saying nothing matches.

Two for the Dough

“One bedroom, one bath, living room-dining room, uninspired but adequate kitchen, small foyer with a strip of pegs for hanging coats and hats and gun belts.”

Four to Score

Her kitchen is to the left of the door. (four to score)

Her apartment is two apartments over from the end. (four to score)
