~Plain Jane~

by Fern Michaels

      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 own. 

     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 Side?

      What worked for me:

    Although I didn't think much of her professionally, I did like Jane in general.

      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.

Overall:

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".
