About the Book
Gilly Bonning is a smart but unambitious sales assistant working in a seaside department store. Her world is turned upside down when boyfriend Tim is involved in a bizarre accident putting him in a coma. In an attempt to rebuild her life, Gilly reluctantly accepts a place as a music student at a provincial teacher training college, far away from Tim's bedside. When Tim finally regains consciousness, he can recall nothing of his recent past and has no memory of Gilly. To make matters worse, the scheming and manipulative Lena is endeavouring to inveigle herself into his affections.
Meanwhile, Gilly has encountered Theo, a handsome but odious orchestral conductor — it's clearly hate at first site. Then Ewan, a keen and well-connected GP, makes a play for her attention. Can Gilly reclaim her man? Who is the mysterious sender of anonymous greetings cards? Does Ewan have more to offer than the occasional dinner date? And what does Alexander Pushkin have do to with Tim's accident? All shall be revealed...
Born and brought up in Ringwood, Hants, Jennie Ann Rake was a primary school teacher for many years, specialising in music and living in Haddenham with husband David. Since leaving the village and moving to Dorset, her passion for Fair Trade led her to open her own shop. When trade was slow and the thought of dusting shelves seemed tiresome, Jennie turned to writing in between serving customers. She'd heard the suggestion that there is a novel inside everyone and wanted to find out if there was one in her.
Forgetting Mr Nice-Guy is her second novel. Her first novel, Deception, Lies and Chocolate Muffins, was published in September 2013.
