5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable reading
This is a lovely story and has a real feel good factor about it. The main character, Polly, is written about in such a way that you actually begin to care about her and what happens! I loved the descriptions in the book - made me want to move house nearer the sea...

This book is light reading and enjoyable. The kind that you want to read in one sitting...

2.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant read no more no less
This was an easy read but did feel it was so contrived and had all the elements of a fairy story ! The best bit was her recipes for bread at the end !

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely read, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought 'Little Beach Street Bakery' as I was looking for a light, easy read on my Kindle and it definitely didn't disappoint. I found myself being pulled into the story and really caring about the characters - it was sad in places, happy in others and made me laugh out loud more than once. A lovely read - especially for a holiday!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I could give more than a 5 star rating :0), 3 April 2014

If there is only 1 book you read this year then it has to be Little Beach Street Bakery. This novel definitely has the 'feel good factor'. There are lots of interesting characters in it & my favourites were Reuben & his relationship with Kerensa, Jayden & of course, the wonderful Neil! Please Jenny write a sequel

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely light hearted read, 5 Jun 2014

I loved this book, i was swept away by the story and was smiling most of the way through, Pollys life goes from bad to worse from the breakdown of her long term relationship, no longer able to afford the flat she lived in she has no choice but to move away to a sleepy little village in Cornwall where she knows no one and has to live above an abandoned shop in a run down flat. Trying to make the most of her days since there's not a lot going on in the village she picks up a old hobby she used to love which was baking bread. Soon she has all the locals talking and they all want to sample her baking but not everyone is happy about her hobby, mainly her mean looking landlord who happens to be the local baker. This really is a lovely light read with a touch of romance chucked in too, it had me laughing out loud in places, mainly due to her rescued puffin bird which was so cute and funny and my favorite parts of the book. I would recommend to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great easy read, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A relaxing, easy read book. Very descriptive of the local surroundings, and the characters interesting. A bit predictable for the ending, but non the worse for it.

Great for a holiday read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 4 April 2014
By 
M. F. Cayley (Hampshire, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
If this is chick lit, I am an honorary chick. This is a delightful book about a woman whose relationship breaks up when her and her partners' business goes bust, and who settles on a fictitious island (loosely akin to St Michael's Mount) connected to mainland Cornwall by a causeway. Jenny Colgan does not hide the harsh side of life in a small fishing community, but this is a lovely warm book, complete with pet puffin.
