If your book club enjoyed books by Elin Hilderbrand, Jojo Moyes, and Jane Green, Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery is a perfect pick for your summer read. An irresistible novel —moving and funny, soulful and sweet — Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery is about happiness, heartache, and hope.
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.
Unpredictable and unforgettable, this delightful novel will make you laugh and cry. You’ll long for a lighthouse of your own — and, inevitably, for something sweet to eat, paired with a glass of wine!
