What is the book about
It’s Christmas in the Cornish coastal village of Mount Polbearne – a time for family, friends and feasting
Polly Waterford loves running the Little Beach Street Bakery and the festive season always inspires her to bake something extra special for the village residents.

Can she get things back on track so that everyone has a merry Christmas?
What I rate it
My thoughts on “Christmas time at Little Beach Street Bakery”
It was my first ever time reading a book by Jenny Colgan and I loved it! It took me by surprise to find out it was the LAST book out of a trilogy but even so I don’t think it made a huge difference and I still loved the book and will definitely be getting the other two books!
The story line progressed nicely, not too slow but not too fast either! You really get to emphasise with the characters and feel like you’re actually there living in the story. It was one of those books that I just couldn’t put down! It wasn’t overly Christmassy which I liked, it had other underlying stories within it which makes it a much more complex but interesting read.
I would highly recommend this book and this author!
