Book Review: Little Beach Street Bakery By Jenny Colgan

Title: Little Beach Street Bakery

Author: Jenny Colgan
Publisher: Sphere
Publication Date: 13th March 2014

Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship. Unable to afford their townhouse, she has to move miles away from everyone, to the sleepy little seaside resort of Polbearne, where she lives alone above an abandoned shop.

And so Polly takes out her frustrations on her favourite hobby: making bread. But what was previously a weekend diversion suddenly becomes far more important as she pours her emotions into kneading and pounding the dough, and each loaf becomes better and better. With nuts and seeds, olives and chorizo, with local honey (courtesy of local bee keeper, Huckle), and with reserves of determination and creativity Polly never knew she had, she bakes and bakes and bakes . . . And people start to hear about it.

Sometimes, bread really is life . . . And Polly is about to reclaim hers.

I am always a huge fan of Jenny Colgan's book and when I found out about Little Beach Street Bakery I was jumping up for joy. What do you think of the cover? I think it is ever so beautiful and so colourful, which is always something I love about Jenny's books.

So we meet Polly who is a single lady again after having a toxic relationship, she moves to the sleepy seaside resort of Polbearne, a little flat above an abandoned shop. Polly's favourite hobby is making bread, she tries every ingredient to make some tasty bread. Polly meet's some local people and has a lovely friendship between local bee keeper, Huckle, Strange at first but very cute towards the end :)

I loved this so much, It was great reading about Polly and starting her new life by the seaside, the little resort sounded so cute and would love to live by the sea. While reading this, I was daydreaming about homemade bread and being able to buy it from a bakery like Polly's.

The characters in Little Beach Street Bakery were great, I loved how something drastic happens and everybody comes together and tries to help each other and the families victims involved. Reuben had me in stitches with his witty comments and when he is chasing Polly's best friend Kerensa...
Also...Jenny please may I have a baby Puffin too? how cute was Kevin!?! Who couldn't resist a little baby Puffin, hehe adorable and there is nothing wrong than having an obsession about one of the cutest animal's ever!

One thing I always love about Jenny's books is they never fail to make you smile, laugh or even shed a few tears. They always will brighten your day or when you want a cosy day of reading.
I thought this book was great and Jenny's fan's are going to love this!
it is a perfect spring read! Don't miss out!

Loveable Characters, plenty of laughter, make you want to live by the sea and eat plenty of bread..makes this a perfect 5 star book!
