Publisher's Summary

Given a backroom computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly - dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs. Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish Highlands.
No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books...not to mention how the little community is going to take to her, particularly when she stalls the bus on a level crossing....

"A fun, warm-hearted read." (Fanny Blake, Woman & Home)
"We love Jenny Colgan's books, but Little Beach Street Bakery is definitely one of our favourites, utterly charming, atmospheric and brilliantly written it will captivate you and keep you totally absorbed until the very end. We loved it! Highly recommended!" (Hot Brands, Cool Places)
"Cheery and heart-warming escapism." (Sunday Mirror)
"This delightful novel will make you feel warm inside - it makes a fab Mother's Day gift." (Closer)

One for Booklovers

I listened through this in a few days while quilting. It was a light fun listen. Loved the Scottish setting and the people that populated the book. It was very well narrated with very good differentiation of voices.

Wonderfully descriptive.

It must be good, it kept me sitting in the car on several occasions. Beautifully written. Very enjoyable.

Escape to a place of peace

At the beginning of the story I bag an to doubt whether this book would fulfill my expectations until I was at least an hour in. Once this story got going I was immersed in the whole tale of new beginnings which was just what I was looking for. Escaping to this peaceful and tranquil town was perfect for a relaxing drive to and from work, I found myself not able to stop listening once I had arrived home. On several occasions I found myself parked outside of my home listening just to enjoy the rest of the chapter in my own little world/car.

Really enjoyable even if the guy voices sound like girl voices

I really enjoyed this story, but then my fantasy is to pack it all in al move to Scotland so it was right up my alley... As I live in Australia I'll just have to live vicariously 😜.

The only I did find irritating was the narrators attempts at a male voice(s) it was quite hard picturing strong Scottish farmer types when they sound like they would be more likely to own small show quality dogs and would t been seen dead with dirt under their nails. But the story made up for it :)
