Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery (Little Beach Street Bakery #2)
by Jenny Colgan
Synopsis (from goodreads)
A thriving bakery. A lighthouse to call home. A handsome beekeeper. A pet puffin. These are the things that Polly Waterford can call her own. This is the beautiful life she leads on a tiny island off the southern coast of England.
But clouds are gathering on the horizon. A stranger threatens to ruin Polly’s business. Her beloved boyfriend seems to be leading a secret life. And the arrival of a newcomer—a bereft widow desperately searching for a fresh start—forces Polly to reconsider the choices she’s made, even as she tries to help her new friend through grief.
I fell quite quickly for Polly Waterford! With a number of quirky characters that are fun and endearing it is difficult to not be intrigued by this story from the very beginning. Not having read the first book was only a slight hindrance as both the characters and the story begin to light up and shine the further one reads. A cozy romance description certainly fits here and for a light hearted and entertaining read, this should be at the top of the list.
