Cheery and heart-warming escapism
This sunny read will make you feel drenched in vitamin D until the real thing comes along... There are lots of books about women moving to the country and starting again, but Colgan's fishing village feels real, the characters are funny and the dilemmas genuine.
Colgan's combination of escapism and humour creates a relaxing read
This delightful novel will make you feel warm inside - it makes a fab Mother's Day gift ****
This book should come with a warning label: it may well inspire you to chuck it all in and start a bakery in a remote location. If you are anything like us, you will devour the descriptions of beautiful Cornwall... Like any good bread, this will fill you up and make you smile.
The follow-up to Little Beach Street Bakery sees graphic designer-turned-artisan baker Polly dealing with a series of major setbacks. Her tenancy is under threat and financial problems mean she faces life without her boyfriend. The plot isn't the most realistic, but Colgan brings a dramatic edge to the genre.
We love Jenny Colgan's books, but Little Beach Street Bakery is definitely one of our favourites, utterly charming, atmospheric and brilliantly written it will captivate you and keep you totally absorbed until the very end. We loved it! HIghly recommended!
