Publisher's Summary

It's the most wonderful time of the year...and the perfect moment to escape to a charming English village! From the beloved author whose novels are "sheer indulgence from start to finish" (Sophie Kinsella) comes a delightful holiday story - funny, heartfelt, romantic, and packed with recipes - perfect for the winter months.

In the Cornish coastal village of Mount Polbearne, the Christmas season has arrived. It's a joyous time for family, friends, and feasting, as decorations sparkle along the town's winding streets and shop windows glow with festive displays. And in Polly's Little Beach Street Bakery, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and other treats tempts people in from the cold.

Though Polly is busy keeping up with the demands of the season, she still makes time for her beekeeper boyfriend, Huckle. She's especially happy to be celebrating the holiday this year with him and can't wait to cuddle up in front of the fireplace with a cup of eggnog on Christmas Eve.

But holiday bliss soon gives way to panic when a storm cuts the village off from the mainland. Now it will take all of the villagers to work together in order to ensure everyone has a happy holiday.

Full of heart and humor, Jenny Colgan's latest novel is an instant Christmastime classic.

A bit wordy. Sweet story. Most of the voices were good. Great setting and food detail.

struggled

The last few minutes didn't make up for hours of misery . No southern man sounds like poor Huckle.

Magical

I really enjoyed this book. The story and the atmosphere where perfectly described. The only thing that bothered me was Huckles accent. I’ve never meet anyone from Virginia with such a deep
Southern accent like that. Besides that very charming.
