Little Beach Street Bakery

Jenny Colgan is one of my favorite Scottish writers along with M. C. Beaton (I miss her!) and Alexander McCall Smith. In this quartet series, Polly has abandoned a fast-paced life, her business and broken relationship for a remote tidal island to figure out her next steps. Entering this insular community of characters, Polly meets the courageous fishermen, grumpy bakery owner, and American beekeeper wondering if she could fit in and belong here someday. Meant as a temporary landing, Polly discovers she feels comfort and connection. Maybe she will stay longer then planned? Baking has always been her go-to when feeling unsettled. It turns out the tiny island needs a baker. Perhaps Polly has reached her destination instead of just a stopping-off point. Enjoyable.
