Books from the Backlog - Little Beach Street Bakery

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!  This week's book is Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan.

Goodreads:  Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan

Blurb:  Amid the ruins of her latest relationship, Polly Waterford moves far away to the sleepy seaside resort of Polbearne, where she lives in a small, lonely flat above an abandoned shop.

To distract her from her troubles, Polly throws herself into her favorite hobby: making bread. But her relaxing weekend diversion quickly develops into a passion. As she pours her emotions into kneading and pounding the dough, each loaf becomes better than the last. Soon, Polly is working her magic with nuts and seeds, olives and chorizo, and the local honey-courtesy of a handsome local beekeeper. Drawing on reserves of determination and creativity Polly never knew she had, she bakes and bakes . . . and discovers a bright new life where she least expected it.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I do want to read it but I also discovered that the Romance Package (or whatever they're calling it now) on Audible has the 2nd one so I need to read this one so I can listen to that one.


  1. I have this one in my wish list at Audible, I really should get on to it. I have a copy of the Christmas one in this series sitting on my actual TBR shelf as well. I see there is at least three in the series.

  2. Hope you get the chance to read it soon!

  3. Jenny Colgan I've read before...
    I don't mind a good-feel story.

  4. I have only listened to two book by this author and this was my favorite of the two so I hope you get a chance to read it!

  5. I have not read anything by this author before but I love books that work cooking into the story. I do hope you enjoy this one, Katherine!

  6. This sounds like a nice summer read:)
