Welcome back to Mount Polbearne! The new book from Top Ten best seller Jenny Colgan is full of festive joy, warmth and the best hot chocolate you can imagine....
It's Christmas in the Cornish coastal village of Mount Polbearne - a time for family, friends and feasting.
Polly Waterford loves running the Little Beach Street Bakery. She's at her happiest when she's creating delicious treats and the festive season always inspires her to bake and knead something extra special for the village residents. In fact, the only thing she loves more than her bakery is curling up with her gorgeous boyfriend, Huckle. She's determined that this Christmas is going to be their best one yet, but life doesn't always work out as planned....
When Polly's best friend Kerensa turns up with a secret that threatens the life Polly and Huckle have built together, the future begins to look uncertain. And then a face from Polly's past reappears and things become even more complicated. Polly can usually find solace in baking but she has a feeling that's not going to be enough this time. Can she get things back on track so that everyone has a merry Christmas?

Warm, cosy and delightful. Loved being back at the Beach Street Bakery and I hope we get to go back. Classic Colgan at her best.
What a jolly and happy little story. I listened to this between Christmas and New Year and it was perfect company for chilly winter walks and tidying the house! Just lovely.
Delightful story with real characters and twists and turns of humanity's fragility and ability to overcome pain and turmoil. Loved the Cornish setting. Left me with wanting more, a real page turner.
The story was ok, although a bit too far fetched in places. The narration of the 2 American men speaking was probably the most irritating voice I've ever listened to, it totally spoilt the book and I debated whether to give up as it was just so annoying.
