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.

Par Fabulous Adda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
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.

Jenny Colgan did it again. She wrote a great book about love and baking.
The characters in book are so cute, down to earth and you have to love them all. Polly is a real fighter and after disappointment in life she now knows what she wants and works hard for it. Relationship between Kerensa and Reuben is so well written and so funny.
Descriptions of Cornwall are so good and so vivid that I have everything mapped and imagined in my head. I can see the bakery, the lighthouse, the cottage with meadow and bees, harbor...
I am writing this review in late night hours cause I had to finish the book so excuse me for all the errors that I have made :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Heartwarming and poignant this is the ultimate feel-good novel - HIGHLY recommended 17 mars 2014
Par Z. de Ruiter - Publié sur Amazon.com
There are only a few authors whose books immediately go on my to-read list as soon as a new one is announced but Jenny Colgan's definitely fall in that special category. Ever since I read Meet Me At the Cupcake Café in 2011 (eternal gratitude goes to the friend who lent me the book) she's been one of my favourite authors and a new book cannot be released soon enough. She has a flair for delightful escapism stories which perfectly balance romance, heart-warming characters, a healthy dose of drama and scrumptious recipes. This winning formula could become repetitive or predictable after a while, but she always manages to give her readers something completely fresh yet retaining the essence of what makes her novels such lovely and delectable reads.

Little Beach Street Bakery is the story of Polly Waterford, who has to start over after her company goes bankrupt and her relationship falls apart as a result of the added stress and money worries. With no job and her house on the market to pay off debt, Polly is at a cross-roads; struggle on in the city or find somewhere more affordable to live. In her search she come across Mount Polearne, a little-known island of the coast of Cornwall. The rickety house she views there is barely liveable, with holes in the roof and a thick layer of grime covering the interior, and the village lacks transport links and modern amenities, yet there's a certain rustic charm which appeals immensely to Polly. Making the place liveable after years of neglect while battling unfriendly islanders, terrifying storms and ongoing money worries make for a stressful start to her new life, but they're balanced by a rekindled love for bread baking, a blossoming romance and an unlikely companion in the form of a small puffin, Neil.

I felt a sense of nostalgia reading the novel as many elements within reminded me of my first author love: Enid Blyton. It had particular strong elements of the Adventure Series; set on an island, a character named Polly and even puffins played a part in those stories too. Blyton also had a flair for describing seemingly simplistic yet ultimately very appealing food, such as fresh bread, cheeses and honey - just like Colgan does. Of course Little Beach Street Bakery was more intricate and layered than the children's books I devoured when I was younger, but it had the same core ingredients which had me so hooked to Blyton's work - with an added dose of handsome men.

My own nostalgia aside, this was such a wonderful read and ticked all the boxes of what I was hoping for in a Colgan novel; a charming and inviting story filled with likeable characters and scrumptious baked goods, which are described so vividly that they made me hungry just reading about them. Cupcake Café had a wealth of sugary treats, Rosie Hopkins made the reader reminisce about old-fashioned sweets and Little Beach Street Bakery makes mouths water with lush descriptions of different types of bread and organic produce as main character Polly loses herself in the cathartic process of kneading bread and creating new flavours with edible delights she comes across on the island. Gosh, I'm rambling about food without really saying what I think of the book...

In short: I loved this SO MUCH. It was an utterly delightful read and I wish I could give it more than the five stars I've currently awarded it. Being a fan of Colgan's writing my expectations could've easily been too high, setting me up for an inevitable disappointment, but she surpassed herself once more. I simply loved everything about the novel, from Polly's passion for baking bread to the incredibly adorable Neil who made me want a puffin of my very own to befriend. I was also gripped tight by the story, which took some surprising twists and turns towards the end, and I stayed up far too late on a work day so I could finish the book on the same day I'd started it.

Heart-warming and romantic yet also surprising and poignant at times, Little Beach Street Bakery is the ultimate feel-good novel and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Main Character & Lovely Setting 15 février 2015
Par Anissa Annalise - Publié sur Amazon.com
When I read chick lit, I read Brit chick lit and so I was very happy & satisfied with this one. Adored it & will definitely read the next in the series. Polly was a character I rooted for from the start and I very much wanted things to work out for her. She had a tough go with bankruptcy and the break-up with Chris (who I thought was a first class twerp most of the story but who had a redemptive salvo) and while things didn't just go perfectly for her when she moved to Polbearne it was still a considerable improvement. From the first loaf of bread that she made complete with her own tears, I was swept away. Neil, the puffin brought a first friend and much needed levity & also something to care for. I loved meeting the fishermen. I thought Tarnie had better romantic chemistry with Polly but I can see why Huckle had to be the one in the end (hopefully his & Polly's romantic chemistry is better in the next book). Gillian was from hell and even when I found out what ailed her psyche, I still didn't feel that justified the horrible way she treated everyone (who the hell tries to outlaw bagels for an entire town?!). She acted like she'd cornered the market on a hard life and took it out on everyone else and they all cowered and kowtowed to her! I liked that Polly felt charitable pity for Gilllian and her situation because I'd none to give. I did like how the two were sort of in a lifeboat situation for work and how that gave Polly the space to bake and thrive that she needed. I liked Huckle and his friend Reuben (who I just knew was going to be the perfect match for Kerensa).

Polbearne was an adorable setting and described beautifully even in the off-season full of likable characters that I didn't want to leave just yet. I enjoyed reading about it and very much look forward to the next installment. I'd definitely recommend this one for a weekend or vacation read (perhaps in a sleepy seaside).

OH MY! I have read most of Jenny Colgan’s books and am very fond of her Rosie Hopkins books. However, MOVE OVER Rosie because Polly is in town! I picked this book up and did not put it down until I managed to finish it later that day. I just fell in love again and again, and now I feel a little bit sad that Polly is gone. The only thingthat perked me up was the idea of a re-visit in the form of Jenny Colgan’s release in February 2015 entitled Summer at The Little Beach Street Bakery.

Polly Waterford is by far one of my favourite characters this year. She is without a doubt a gem of a woman who I literally cannot wait to read about next year. Polly is having a tough time and when her and her partners business fails she ups sticks and moves into a ramshackle flat which is basically an abandoned shop. The sleepy little town she is residing in is the furthest from what she is used to as you can get. It’s essentially an island that is isolated once the tides turn and the bridge to the mainland is inaccessible.

The way Jenny describes the place made me fall in love with it and immediately want to visit. While Polly is trying to recover from her past toxic relationship she realises that she has a whole new host of problems to deal with, such as a job, not knowing anybody and living in a place that is fit to be knocked down. However, Polly is not a pushover and her character from start to finish is just perfect. She is very sarcastic but funny with it and one of her relationships made me chuckle and it was with a bird!!!!

I don’t want to delve too much into the storyline as I don’t want to spoil it for anybody but trust me when I say this is a magical book and one which I read in one sitting. Jenny Colgan has won me over with Polly, and although Rosie remains one of my favourites she is beaten to the post by the brilliant Polly Waterford. If you haven’t read a Jenny Colgan, then what are you waiting for? A magical and reality escaping haven, it’s a book you should definitely have in your collection!
