5 Star Review: Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan



Summer has arrived in the Cornish town of Mount Polbearne and Polly Waterford couldn’t be happier. Because Polly is in love: she’s in love with the beautiful seaside town she calls home, she’s in love with running the bakery on Beach Street, and she’s in love with her boyfriend, Huckle.

And yet there’s something unsettling about the gentle summer breeze that’s floating through town. Selina, recently widowed, hopes that moving to Mount Polbearne will ease her grief, but Polly has a secret that could destroy her friend’s fragile recovery. Responsibilities that Huckle thought he’d left behind are back and Polly finds it hard to cope with his increasingly long periods of absence.

Polly sifts flour, kneads dough and bakes bread, but nothing can calm the storm she knows is coming: is Polly about to lose everything she loves?


Thank you netgallery and Littlebrown books for sending this to me for an honest review

I was absolutely over the moon to go back to Mount Polbearne in Cornwall and see all the characters again  and of course Neil the puffin eep eep. I really enjoyed seeing how their stories have progressed and progressed they did.

I was hooked right from the first page through to the last page ,with this book I love how you can completely escape from reality and emerse yourself with Mount Polbearne everyday life

I really did not want this book to end and hoping and begging for more tales from this magical place

5 of 5 stars

  1. I can’t wait to get a copy of this book. I loved the first one and never wanted it to end. I think it’s something we’d all like to do – own our own little bakery in Cornwall. Well I know I would!
