Publisher's Summary

Back in college, Jane Lewis would have given anything to be like homecoming queen Connie Bryan. Instead she was just Plain Jane - overweight, frumpy, and painfully shy. That was then. Today, a lovely and confident Dr. Jane Lewis has a thriving psychotherapy practice, her own radio talk show, a beautiful old Louisiana mansion, and her affectionate, nutty dog, Olive, to keep her company. The only thing missing is someone to share her life.

Jane has never forgotten Michael Sorenson, the boy she'd admired from afar in college. Now he's inspiring her to hope for a future together. She's also never forgotten the brutal, unsolved attack that ended Connie Bryan's life - and haunts Jane still. Suddenly the present collides with the past as she finds clues into the identities of Connie's attackers - clues that send her into a world of risk and excitement, challenging her to become a truly extraordinary woman...if she dares.

This book has everything!

This book has everything you could have in a book. Love, hate, ghosts, comedy, little bit of violence. I liked this book. Fern Michaels does a great job with this book. Jane has a hateful mother, but she finds wonderful God parents to more than even the score. Well worth the credit. The narrator, Teri Schnaubelt, gets it just right with her performance of these characters.

Great book, great narrator.

I use to really enjoy Fern Michael's books but haven't Read / listen to one in years. Not sure why but I'm glad I found her again. I really enjoyed this book. Someone said when they found out there was a ghost in the story they thought it would be scary so they stopped listening and returned the book. Believe me it wasn't scary at all. There is a teenage ghost character but he's a miner character and nothing about him or his story is scary.. It's to bad the other listener didn't continue listening they missed a good story. You'll enjoy it too.

Pain Jane

Plain Jane by Fern Michaels is the most heart warming story I’ve listened to in along time. I truly enjoyed it and have also enjoyed the other books by Fern Michaels.

Too 'left of field' with ghosts etc!

The premise of the story re the tragedy that happens whilst Jane is at University almost seems a side line to a never ending circle of the same old same old story that goes on and on. Not one of fern Michaels better stories and perhaps one to miss instead of using up a credit.
