Publisher's Summary

Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship. Unable to afford their flat, she has to move miles away from everyone, to a sleepy little seaside resort in Cornwall, where she lives alone above an abandoned shop. And so Polly takes out her frustrations on her favorite hobby: making bread.
But what was previously a weekend diversion suddenly becomes far more important as she pours her emotions into kneading and pounding the dough, and each loaf becomes better and better. With nuts and seeds, olives and chorizo, with local honey (courtesy of local beekeeper, Huckle), and with reserves of determination and creativity Polly never knew she had, she bakes and bakes and bakes...and people start to hear about it. Sometimes bread really is life...and Polly is about to reclaim hers.

Could have been great.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It got a little far-fetched. I love the stories of a women being down but recovering against the odds. I loved the parts about baking bread, taking care of honey bees and fishing but when it got into the crazy wild gazillionaire and the Star Wars wedding I lost interest. I also didn't like the narrator's southern accent. It's a book. I would rather listen to the same voice than a bad attempt to sound like a man, or worse a southern man.

Would you recommend Little Beach Street Bakery to your friends? Why or why not?

No. Because of the above comments.

Would you be willing to try another one of Veida Dehmlow’s performances?


Did Little Beach Street Bakery inspire you to do anything?

Bake bread. I just finished making my 4th loaf. :)

Narrator sounds like she doesn't like men

What didn’t you like about Veida Dehmlow’s performance?

She has the loveliest female voice but made all the men sound like werewolves. I had a hard time rooting for the love story since all the men sounded like a beasts.
