Heroine: formerly plump
Jane Lewis, haunted by a horrific past, entered the field of psychiatry in
the hopes that she could at least improve the lives of others, if not her
As a therapist, Jane often
advises her struggling patients to accept whatever help is offered to them,
no matter what its source. But can
she take her own advice when the help being offered to her is from the Other
worked for me:
Although I didn't think much of her professionally, I did like Jane in
Size-wise Jane was plump
teen who slimmed down quite a bit as an adult, but she just couldn't shake
those ingrained put-downs from her slender, beauty queen mother.
What didn't work for me:
I love ghost stories, but I much prefer the ghost to be a main character
rather than a peripheral one.
"Plain Jane" started out as
a romantic suspense, but neither of those elements really came to the
forefront for me as the story went on. Jane never had to pay for the
poor judgment calls she made where the bad guys were concerned. And
since my heart never went pitter-patter for her beau Michael, I couldn't
really feel the heat between the two of them.
This story of second
chances is an all right read, but the heroine's downward-spiraling weight might
not appeal to some.
If you liked "Plain Jane" you might also enjoy:
"Sweet Memories", "His
Seductive Revenge", "Dear
Cupid", "Looking for
Laura", "Too Much
Temptation", "Walking After
Midnight", and "Shadows in the Moonlight".
