Blog Tour: Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone

Author: Victoria Helen Stone
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Date of publication: August 1, 2018

Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty in her floral-print dresses and extra efficient at her low-level job. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes—meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven.

But plain Jane is hiding something. And Steven’s bringing out the worst in her.

Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. It’s time for Jane to dig out everything that matters to Steven. So she can take it all away.
Just as he did to her.

Jane Doe was a refreshingly unique read.  It's narrated by the main character, Jane.    She is seeking revenge on Steven for taking away something dear to her.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. 

Jane was an interesting narrator.  She is an admitted sociopath, but she also admits she has no desire to become a killer...unless necessary.  I found that I liked Jane more and more as she tells the reader why she is seeking revenge.  While I'm not usually a huge fan of revenge stories, I was applauding her at the end. I could sympathize with her.  Her solution was brilliant.  I won't give too much more away. The ending was perfect.  

This is one a definitely recommend. I've read and enjoyed this authors book under her other name, Victoria Dahl.  This is a whole new side of her and I look forward to seeing what she comes out with next.
