Reading the title, readers would be forgiven for believing that this book is about a Bakery on Little Beach Street and although the main character, Polly Waterford, does open a bakery, this is only a small part of the story. I believe that the story is much more than this. Polly moves away from her old life, her ex partner and her business which has gone down the pan, and moves to Cornwall, remote and scenic. However, what Polly does not realise is that there are many unspoken rules about living in Polbearne and Polly upsets a number of villagers before she becomes accepted by villagers and puts Polbearne back onto the map.
There are a number of great characters in the book but I must admit, the most adorable was the little puffin, Neil, which Polly nursed back to health. I also liked the fishermen Jayden and Tarnie, and Huckle, the American Bee-Keeper, all of whom had their own stories which were entwined within Polly's.
At the end of the book there are a number of recipes which have been mentioned in the story - I love this extra material from Jenny. By the time you have finished the book you are left hungry from reading about all of the gorgeous sounding food that Jenny makes.
