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.
