Colgan's third "Little Beach" novel (after Little Beach Street Bakery and Summer at Little Beach Street Bakery), set on the tiny tidal island of Mount Polbearne off the coast of Cornwall, England, has Polly busily making Christmas pastries at her bakery when she's not snuggling up with her boyfriend Huckle and pet puffin Neil in their drafty lighthouse home. Polly and Huckle are looking forward to a quiet holiday to themselves, but their plans change as Polly must help her friend Kerensa through a crisis and then is faced with a family problem of her own. A Christmas surprise, though, makes for a sweet ending.
VERDICT Women's fiction devotees will savor this latest and utterly charming visit to Mount Polbearne with some holiday recipes included. Fans of Jill Mansell and Vanessa Greene will relish this series.
