Go to "View > Non-Printer Characters".  This will show the paragraph
breaks, etc.
Position the cursor within a paragraph or select (highlight) desired
Open "Format > Paragraph" and go to the "Indents & Spacing Tab".
You can view and change spacing setting here.

I’m using LibreOffice Writer to write a novel and the line-spacing is all
messed up. Single, 1.5, double-spacing all on the same page.

I’ve tried Format-spacing, Windows-paragraph and everything else -- but
nothing works.

Can you please help me?

 Thank you

What I do, is the following:

When I have imported a file from MSOffice and get problems like you are describing, I copy (Ctrl-C) the problematic paragraph, delete the problematic paragraph, make a new one with the desired paragraph style en paste the text with Ctrl-Shif-Alt-V. This way of pasting deletes all formatting from the text and accepts the style of the chosen paragraph. Later I delete al superfluous Windows styles that encumber the document.

I hope this helps; good luck.
