Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“I loved Little Beach Street Bakery. Losing myself in Jenny Colgan’s beautiful pages is the most delicious, comforting, satisfying treat I have had in ages.” (Jane Green, New York Times betselling author of Saving Grace and Tempting Fate)

“Sheer indulgence from start to finish.” (Sophie Kinsella, #1 New York Times betselling author of the Shopaholic series)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship. Unable to afford their flat, she has to move miles away from everyone, to a sleepy little seaside resort in Cornwall, 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.

Little Beach Street Bakery
Jenny Colgan

The main and most important characters in this book...in my opinion...

Polly...lover of banter and breads, Neil...the portly puffin, Huckle...bee keeper and former resident of Savannah, Georgia, Tarnie...fisherman, Mrs. Manse...meannie and former baker and Polly's landlady...now maker of tasteless toasties, Chris...Polly's sort of clueles ex boyfriend and Kerensa...Polly's best friend. There are other grand and great characters but these were my faves.

My very brief story summary that includes bits and bobs from the beginning, middle and end of this book...

Every once in a while a book is just simply perfect and totally magical. Polly leaves her life behind...or rather her life leaves her...she is without a home, a job, a fiancé! All she really loves to do is bake breads! Fully carb loaded amazing breads! She travels to a little island where you have to know when the tide is in or out to actually get to it and she finds a little loft on top of an abandoned bakery. She meets fishermen and a beekeeper and a millionaire, a wounded puffin...Neil...and a mean and nasty landlady! What is so much fun about this book is Polly and the banter between everyone. This book is fun, quirky and dare I say...it's adorable...but not in a sickening kind of way. If I was Goldilocks I would pronounce this book...just right! Plus I love portly Neil The Puffin! He loves brioche and tea kettles...lol!

My actual most favorite part of this book...

What I really truly loved about this book was the actual day to day life of living in this little beachy town. I also loved seeing Polly grow, blossom, and bloom! The descriptions of breads...and warm honey and jams and tea and good strong coffee and fish and chips and cheeses...OMG! Lovely! To die for! Amazing!

My actual real and true feelings about this book and whether or not other potential readers will enjoy it...

Books appeal to different readers for a multitude of reasons. For reasons unknown this book simply sang to me. I loved everything about it. Readers who enjoy quirky clever sweet books...should truly love this one.

My thank you to Edelweiss for allowing me to read this book on my Kindle Paperwhite!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm always sad when a book doesn't work out 1 juillet 2015
Par M. A. Edema - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm always sad when a book doesn't work out. A popular book blog recommended this one and I was a little surprised from the beginning. It reads like some of the novellas I get for my kindle around Christmas time- not at all serious, Hallmark movie-esque, easy reading. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I guess I was expecting it to be a little smarter, if that makes any sense. I really enjoy Sophie Kinsella and she has a positive quote on the cover of this book. The cover also has a cupcake on it, and the bakery in the book is a bread bakery- no cupcakes! That's no big deal, of course; the big deal for me is just how choppy the writing is. I have noticed one example of this in romantic comedy books lately- the story will be told in third person but mostly from the girl's point of view, but then all the sudden, you're getting the guy's point of view for like half a page. It's awkward and it's inconsistent. There were also a lot of awkward transitions in the book. A character will be feeling strongly one way and then shift to an opposite feeling with no explanation- off the top of my head, this happened with Huckle (Haha! Worst name ever! Do British people really think Americans have names like that?! which also reminds me that the dialogue written for the American was jarringly bad), Kerensa, and Mrs. Manse. Another awkward aspect is the shift in setting without proper explanation- i.e. you thought they were on the beach but now they're back at the hotel. But I guess all of that would've been okay if I felt like I really knew or understood the characters. They were either poorly drawn or caricatures. There were also a lot of over the top cliche situations- massive storms, humungously unrealistic parties, dramatic beach and rain scenes, etc. I like "beachy reads" but this one just didn't work for me.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Light-Hearted Read for Foodie Fiction Fans 10 avril 2015
Par Miss Bonnie - Publié sur Amazon.com
When Polly’s long-term relationship comes crashing down and with it the business they’ve built together, she’s left to start over completely from scratch. With so few options available to her, she agrees to rent a run-down flat with a leaky roof on the island of Polbearne. She finds solace in utilizing her baking skills and filling the air of the island with the enticing smell of freshly baked bread.

Polbearne, a quaint seaside village off the coast of England, is based off the actual island St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. Colgan’s descriptions of the village were thorough, detailing not only the people and their way of life but of the town itself and the sole causeway being the only way to come and go on the island. While the people in the village weren’t always the most friendly (since they saw Polly as an outsider), the village itself sounded like a such a lovely place to reside with its small shops on cobbled streets and a ruined yet still charming castle on the top of a hill overlooking the island.

Polly’s ever-constant baking was also given much detail and constantly left you craving delicious breads. After one particularly tasty sounding chapter I became determined to also become a master bread maker. Long story short, I failed miserably. Bread is FAR harder to bake than Polly makes it sound like just so you know! I didn’t actually attempt any of the recipes included in the story (Cheese Straws, Sweetcorn Fritters, Cinnamon Rolls, Focaccia, and my favorite: Shortbread) but I’m determined to try again. Someday.

This fun little foodie novel is not without its fill of drama though. Polly immediately begins butting heads with her landlord who is the sole baker on the island and Polly’s freshly baked bread is hampering her sales. Her landlord has her own personal history that ends up being told as a side-story. Polly also gets involved in some romantic complications that ends up being something akin to a love square. While I’m not a fan of love triangles and especially squares in general, what really disappointed me with this one in particular was the lack of chemistry between Polly and any of the men. What I loved most about Polly was her empowering story of hitting rock bottom and finding the strength to not only make a living but to find out who she is while being on her own again. The romance element wasn’t completely necessary in my opinion and especially not that many romances. It made it all avoidably messy and I would have appreciated a much more simplistic story in that regard.

I don’t know how I’ve failed to mention the best part of the story this far into my review! When Polly moves to Polbearne she unintentionally takes on a new pet which she names Neil. Neil, the puffin. Neil was by far the cutest addition to the story even though he was unrealistically tame, but whatever! Now I want a pet puffin.

Little Beach Street Bakery is a sweet, entertaining tale about learning to navigate the harsh realities of life and finding what you’re passionate about. It’s the perfect read for foodie fiction fans and readers simply looking for a light-hearted read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Bread, not cupcakes. Not much reality either. 23 août 2015
Par Frosty - Publié sur Amazon.com
p. 225 "I could do with a bit of piece and quiet". Are there no proof readers?? hello out there, peace not piece belongs in this sentence!

The book did not live up to anything on the cover. It is about bread, so why is there a cupcake on the cover?

Reality kept getting lost in this book. Apparently there are no health regulations or licenses needed to make and serve food in this place. No money needed to make improvements, pay rent or buy food. Naturally some people are more than rich, all books seem to need those. Of course, nice normal people happily marry rude rich people and it all works out.

The characters didn't seem the least bit real to me. By the time Huckle (what sort of name is that supposed to be anyway?) returned to the island, I didn't care. He seemed way too flighty to be a reliable life partner.

All the part about bees, did not sound the least like any bee keeping information I've ever read before. Every couple days, she was there harvesting honey. Really now?

Par Fabulous Adda - Publié sur Amazon.com

Polly Waterford’s carefully crafted life in a townhouse with once-upon a truly trusted and loving partner had shattered into pieces. Polly had to get out and away from it all because it hurts a lot and what could have been better than moving to a beautiful but sleepy seaside town Polbearne. It’s practically in between of nowhere with handful of the residents. Once in the town Polly has nothing to do but sit by the window in her little crumbling rented flat and look out at the beautiful sea all day long. To relieve her stress and frustration she started baking bread, she is good with it, always had been. As Polly started sifting, kneading and pounding day after day, the bread loafs started turning out delicious than ever and famous among the locals and before Polly knew she is running a small bakery in the town and everyone is talking about it. Will moving to the place like this with nothing to lose, baking breads and falling head over heels for a hunky fisherman give Polly the stability she always craved for or will everything turned out to be a silly mistake? It’s a beautiful book. It got me hooked right from the first sentence. I loved Jenny’s easy writing and cosy setting. It’s a simple, sweet book to devour on a rainy day, under the blanket during the snowy storm or while lying on a sandy beach.
