Plain JaneBook - 2001
"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 time...in crime stopping, and in love.
