Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A stand-alone sequel to The Little Beach Street Bakery but much enhanced if you’ve read the first for this continues the life of Polly and Huckle (and the puffin Neil). Polly gets sacked from the local baker and takes to doing her own thing and selling her wares out of a van in the local car park. But it takes time to build a clientele and so Huckle has to go back to the US to make some money. The couple begin to lose touch and then a terrible storm arrives. This is lovely, a charming and compulsive continuation of their lives in Cornwall.

If you like Jenny Colgan you might also like to read books by Jill Mansell, Katie Fforde and Carole Matthews.

Synopsis

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?
