Dit is natuurlijk een echt feel good serie, maar dit deel werkt niet echt voor mij. Ik irriteerde me nogal aan het eindeloos herhalen van feitjes. Die kwamen zowat in elk hoofdstuk allemaal weer voorbij. Het verhaal op zich is wel heerlijk, maar de uitwerking had een betere redacteur kunnen gebruiken. ( )

[This is a review I wrote in 2017 for the whole series (up to that date)]

Sometimes a series of books just sell themselves… If you’re looking for a fun, light-hearted escapist mini-series, if you like a bit of non-slushy romance, puffins, seaside, Cornwall and an independent, hard-working main character, then look no further.

Polly has just emerged from a messy break-up and business failure, leaving her pretty well destitute and homeless. She’s sick of the rat-race and city life and, looking to escape Plymouth and find somewhere affordable to live, she stumbles across the perfect place – a somewhat run-down flat on the little island of Mount Polbearne (loosely based on St. Michael’s Mount off the south coast of Cornwall). Her best friend think she’s nuts but Polly falls in love with the place and before she knows what she’s doing, she’s signed a lease. Almost the first thing to happen to Polly, when she’s barely unpacked, a crash and a screech in the middle of the night… and all of a sudden Polly seems to have adopted a little puffin with a broken wing. Determined not to get too attached, she doesn’t name him but it doesn’t take long for this cute little bird to worm his way into her affections and very soon he’s going by the name of Neil.

And then there’s the baking… the clue is somewhat in the title but, for those who haven’t read the series, I won’t give away how Polly gets into baking on Mount Polbearne. She’s always loved baking, been passionate about different breads and spent her weekends kneading dough and creating tasty loaves and treats but she’s never earned her living by baking before. However, once Polly realises she can’t live on fresh air alone and an opportunity presents itself, well, the rest you’ll need to find out from the books.

This is a really warm series about starting afresh, about it never being too late to follow your dreams (even if you don’t yet know what those dreams are), about living for the moment and getting in touch with your creativity. There is some romance to be found but not the slushy variety. Polly is an independent young woman; not someone to lose herself or her identity in an all-consuming relationship, though she does of course like to have a bit of fun and everyone wants to find their Mr. Right.

Start with ‘Little Beach Street Bakery’; follow on with ‘Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery’ and finally, settle down by a cosy fire with a glass of mulled wine and enjoy ‘Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery’. If you have young children you might like to introduce them to her spin-off series for kids, starting with ‘Polly and the Puffin’. Oh, and you’ll find a few yummy recipes in each book as well! ( )

I love Jenny Colgan! I thoroughly enjoyed Little Beach Street Bakery. The characters are so fun and full of life. Jenny has an excellent gift of describing the setting in a way where I can almost feel the waves and smell the baked goods. This story was set up well. I enjoyed the build up of the problem and how interconnected the story lines were; however, I felt like the ending was a let down. I felt like many of the problems were swept under the rug instead of dealt with in a truly human way. It was an excellent book to read wrapped up with a cup of hot chocolate, but do not expect a great deal of depth with the very heavy emotional struggles the characters are facing! ( )

As is typical for Jenny--a little off the wall but fun, funny, and very real. Excellent as always!!! ( )
