This was a very cute book to read during the holiday season. This is the third and final installment according to author Jenny Colgan of the Little Beach Street Bakery series. All the original stars in this (most importantly Neil) Polly, Huckle, Kerensa, and Rueben. Polly once again stretches herself too thin when people to come to her for help (mostly for her baking skills) and on top of that Polly’s unknown past comes up and Polly must help a friend during a rough time during their lives. This was a cute Christmas book and a must read if you have read the first two.

Maeve Binchy reader’s should enjoy Jenny Colgan’s work, although her lead characters are a little younger, a little edgier. A nice mix of romance, humour and regional detail. This one is set in Cornwall, and The Little Bookshop on the Corner, which I also enjoyed, is about the charms of rural Scotland.

I cried. I (almost) never cry over books--but this one got me. I spent most of the book furious at how stupid people can be and at how easily one stupid mistake can ruin a life--or a family or two families. If you have read the two previous books in this series, you know and love the people and you also know that you need to set aside about 6 hours to do nothing but read this book. It is almost impossible to put down. It reminds me of watching a video of an massive avalanche--you can't stop looking even as the destruction and havoc reach epic proportions.

The last book in the trilogy - I couldn't put this book down and read it well into the night! Another delightful story about Polly and friends.
It's makes your mouth water reading about all the delicious bread and goodies that she bakes! A must read and well recommended! :-)

No stars at all for this one. I wanted to write my comments about this book to the author but there is no way to contact her by email, so I will write here.
This book takes place during the Christmas Season, a time of love and inclusiveness. Instead the author has chosen to cast one of her characters, A rich Jewish male with a non-Jewish wife with all the anti-Semitic stereotypes she could find about Jews- rich, loud, aggressive, pushy, and ill mannered. The author has obviously never met many Jewish people. I, personally, don't know any of the type she so hatefully characterizes. I did not finish the book, and this is the last one of hers that I shall be reading.

And a Merry Christmas to you, Ms. Colgan.
Thank you. Kathryn Stern Braunstein

This is the perfect light read after a series of heavy hitting books. Polly, her boyfriend Huckle, and Neil, their adopted puffin are getting ready for Christmas on Mount Polearne. Polly's friend Kerensa is expecting her first child and is totally miserable as she's not sure who the father is. As Polly navigates her financial woes and relationship misunderstandings, the novel moves at a fast clip until the surprise climax during Christmas week. A good escape book for a few hours of lazy pleasure.

I have enjoyed the other books in this series and this one was a great conclusion to the little series, coming at a happy and festive time. A great story to curl up on the couch with, under a cozy blanket and cup of cocoa in hand.

Welp... rats. I couldn't get past the first few chapters. I found this a boring start and it did not engage me to go further. I will return early, so the others waiting can have a shot.

Christmas with Polly and her Puffin Neil, you can't go wrong. Another lovely story to add to the Little Beach Street Bakery Series.
