Book – For a delectable romantic comedy, check out The Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan.
Meet Polly Waterford, a distraught young woman who is reeling from a toxic break-up. When she is forced to move out of her boyfriend’s apartment, she has nowhere to go. And that’s how she finds her escape, on the seaside of Cornwall in a tiny little house in the middle of nowhere. All alone and far from home, Polly is overcome with loneliness. She does the only thing she can do, she bakes. Soon, what was only a comforting hobby turns into much more as the locals discover Polly’s mouth-watering baked goods.
However, the town baker has taken an instant dislike to Polly who has stolen all of her customers. Can Polly ever escape a life of drama? What will she do when her toxic ex-boyfriend shows up in Cornwall? This charming tale is full of drama, humor and romance–and of course visions of fresh baked bread. Enjoy this sweet story that will keep you cozy in the chilly months ahead.
As a sappy romantic, I adore a good love story. I particularly love romances that take place in a bakery, or food service setting. If you liked The Little Beach Street Bakery, try The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O’Neal, and Since You’ve Been Gone by Anouska Knight.
