Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan

This is the second book I’ve read by Jenny Colgan. She is the master of characters who are not living up to their potential.

Little Beach Street Bakery: A Novel by [Jenny Colgan]

Polly and her partner Chris are watching their lives- their bankrupt business, their executive flat in Plymouth, and their relationship- unravel at the seams. Polly is left with no credit and a boring gray couch that’s too heavy to lift. Her search for an affordable flat leads her to a Cornish Island where she is an unwelcome newcomer, but she’s not unwelcome for long.

Having grown up on Poldark (the old one,) I loved reading about Cornwall and life on a hard coast, in a town the world has passed by. Colgan’s characters are all so completely human, you can’t help but root for them (even the yutz.) Little Beach Street Bakery is a delightful story full of people who are hoping this will be the time they find their groove.

Highly recommended.
