Happy Friday Eve all! I’m throwing it back with this adorable book, from an even more adorable series!
Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery #2 (Release Date: February 26th, 2015)
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?
If any of you have read these books, then you know Polly is the cutest character! She’s quirky, and feisty, and she lives in a lighthouse! You can’t get quirkier than that! She is also sweet and a hell of a good baker. Unfortunately, she isn’t getting what she has worked so hard to earn, and a grief-striken friend throws her perfect life into turmoil.
I really enjoyed this one. The entire town is so endearing, from the gruff sea-fairing men, to the hardy but sweet women. I just love stories about pretty, coastal villages, particularly if the locals aren’t always who they appear to be.
This book was a quick, heart-warming read and I very much look forward to reading the other books about Polly and Huckle!
