Little Beach Street BakeryLarge Print - 2016
Welcome to Polbearne, a Cornish tidal town where the men are hot and the women have plenty of emotional baggage. Colgan's (Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe; The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris) latest chick lit offering drops readers into the world of Polly Waterford. With a bankrupt business and an ex-boyfriend in her rear mirror, Polly moves to a dilapidated flat far away from the yuppie lifestyle she used to revere. Life on the island isn't perfect, but Polly throws herself into her favorite hobby: baking bread. The bread not only nourishes her soul but also the townsfolk, and Polly finds herself operating a bakery with the help of new friends Huckle and Tarnie. As her relationships grow stronger, the real reasons behind each person's sabbatical to the island become clear. When tragedy strikes, the town pulls together like never before and Polly is faced with her toughest challenge yet. VERDICT A predictable but cozy read, perfect for chick lit lovers and those craving a mental vacation. Serve with a side of sourdough.-Chelsie Harris, San Diego Cty. Lib. (c) Copyright 2015.
