批評家のレビュー

"A sheer delight." (Sophie Kinsella)

"An evocative sweet treat." (Jojo Moyes)

"Nobody does cosy, get-away-from-it-all romance like Jenny Colgan." (Sunday Express)

あらすじ・解説

In a quaint seaside resort, a charming bakery holds the key to another world.... 

Returning to the much-loved world of the Little Beach Street Bakery, Jenny Colgan will delight existing fans of the series and entrance new listeners with this spellbinding new novel. 

Marisa Rosso is struggling. Since the death of her beloved grandfather back home in Italy, she can't seem to find a way out of her grief. She's a registrar and knows losing grandparents is a natural part of life, so why does she feel so lost? 

When she hears a hospital is recruiting in Mount Polbearne, a tiny and remote tidal island off the Cornish coast, Marisa thinks she has found the perfect retreat. Perhaps some solitude is just what she needs to combat her homesickness and rediscover her equilibrium. 

But Mount Polbearne is a far cry from the sleepy little place she was imagining. Between her noisy Russian piano-teaching neighbour and the hustle and bustle of a community determined to get back on its feet, Marisa finds solitude is not so easy to come by. Especially when finds herself somehow involved with a tiny local bakery desperately in need of some new zest to save it....

Yet another joy.

Warm, humourous, gentle, charming, embracing delight, the series is something to re-hear, that is something as rare as hens teeth for me to say.

Comfortable & predictable

Like a cosy armchair - this visit to Mount Polbearne was lovely and easy to listen to, with familiar characters and new ones. You knew where the plot was going and I frequently told the characters what I though they should do!

Keep going

I've read the series but the narrator here was different and the American accents were tricky. Karenza had a broad west country accent which did not work with her character but perhaps this was a hangover from the previous narrator.

As another reviewer said, you can draw simarities between the situation and lock down. I found the first 2 hours hard going and a bit depressing, the narrator did not help, that said, Marissa was having a tough time so upbeat would have been out of place. It was good if you pushed through the first 2 hours. I enjoyed it.

I love this series!

Another lovely story from Jenny Colgan, it's such easy listening and fills me full of happiness. I hope now there are two new characters in this great series that there will be more books to come.

Too much melancholy

I’m a huge fan of Jenny Colgan and have loved the series with Polly, Huckle and Neil the puffin. I wish that their storyline had been the full focus this time too. This book was ok, the storyline with Marissa was sweet but I don’t think it worked well on Audiobook. The narrator’s accents were good but it’s a lot of hours to listen to a quiet, melancholic voice. It felt a little despairing at times and needed more energy. It was also too quiet, I had to have the volume all the way up to be able to hear it properly. There were a few parts that were just that bit too far fetched (even for a light hearted fiction book) that prompted a slight eye roll. I would love another book in this series, next time with a more upbeat narrator.

A natural vaccine..

Anyone reading this book can see it’s a representation of the strange and worrying times we are living in now. The main themes are loneliness, grief, anxiety, fear, solitude and finding a new “normal” Covid was never mentioned in this book but you can see it has been an influence.
Marisa is grieving and struggling with everything that comes with grief, the feeling of being alone and no one understanding and how it can completely overwhelm you. She is cramping her sociable flatmates style so he arranges for her to stay in his uncle Reubens holiday home on mount Polbearne. Marisa is expecting to be able to lick her wounds and try to slowly heal herself, by spending time alone and with video calls from her very busy therapist. However she didn’t realise that mount Polbearne and her piano playing neighbour were not going to let her hide away. The tidal island and it’s residents manage to bring her back to life in the same way they did with Polly in the previous books of this series.
You can easily read this as a stand-alone book, but if you have read the previous books it’s wonderful to catch up with Polly, Huckle and her children, not to mention Neil the Puffin of course who is still watching over Polly whilst devouring her baked goods!
Polly becomes acquainted with her neighbour Alexei after complaining about him playing the piano day and night. He is lost in his music whilst facing up to his own tragedy that brought him to mount Polbearne. At first Polly is too scared to approach him to ask him to keep it down, but with a little encouragement from a never ending Skype call from her Nonna and a struggling Polly she learns to appreciate the music and Alexei’s gentle teaching. A brutal storm that causes chaos on the island helps her form a connection with Polly that can change both their lives.
I often struggle listening to audiobooks, I find some of them over performed. I thought this was a fabulous narration that captured the very essence of the characters and for the first time I think I preferred listening over reading.
I thought the story was beautiful and perfect at getting across all the themes of lockdown and living in a pandemic without it being shoved down our throats more. This was a touching story of survival and how our biggest battles are with ourselves. The open Skype call in the story was unique and touching and highlighted how useful technology can be.
This was one of my favourite Jenny Colgan books. I do enjoy reading them all but find they can be hard to tell apart as they often have a similar structure and theme, I think with this book she managed to weave a story relating to
Covid without ever referring to it. That in my eyes is very impressive. I certainly felt less alone reading it and it gave me hope.. I too have very small paws :)

great book 4 of series

Fabulous continuation of story and getting to know the "what happens next" for characters you've become invested in. The change of narrator did a great job. Loved it
