Jennie Rake, a former long-term resident of Haddenham, returned to the village on Friday 22nd November to host a meet the author afternoon at Haddenham Community Library.
An enthusiastic audience came along to hear Jennie read from her her recently published novel "Deception, Lies and Chocolate Muffins" and to purchase signed copies.
Here's a taster of the plot:
The curtains are twitching in Witchert Close, but Hattie and Nick will soon be leaving it all behind for their dream cottage in the country. But in the months leading up to their relocation, the local gossips are given more than enough fuel for their scandal-mongering fires.
The arrival of a handsome, Italian estate agent forces Hattie to reopen wounds from her past. Leo Marcello is a man that she has been trying not to think about for more than twenty years, ever since he left her standing at Victoria Station before disappearing from her life. Now she wants answers--and chocolate muffins!
Jennie has been a primary school teacher for most of her career, specialising in music. Since leaving Haddenham to live in Blandford Forum, Dorset her life with husband David has revolved around running her Fair Trade shop and looking after her three pampered cats!
