With each novel she writes, Fern Michaels is becoming more solidly established as a brand-name, mega-bestselling author. Cherished for her poignant tales of love and family, she has recently also won praise for her complex, compelling characters and for skillfully interweaving threads of mystery and suspense into her emotionally-powerful stories.

"Plain Jane" is Fern Michaels's greatest triumph yet -- the tale of an "ugly duckling" who transforms herself into a successful career woman, wins the love of a wonderful man...and unearths and solves a shocking crime.

Jane Lucas is a psychologist with a call-in radio show. Zippy, articulate, warm, and feisty, she still hasn't met the man of her dreams. She lives alone in Rayne, Louisiana, on an old rice plantation with her vegetarian dog, Olive, a stray she found on her back porch, and two ghosts -- one human, one canine. But things begin to change when a handsome shrink is a guest on her talk show -- and then in her heart. And when her beloved, eccentric godparents produce a K-9 sleuth named Flash, and her mother's ghost tips her off about a few essential things, Jane is ready for the big crime stopping, and in love.

display_description 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.
