Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lovable protagonist, hilarious occasional sidekick, witty dialogue, and surprising story. I envision St. Michael's Mount, a little place off the coast that sometimes has a causeway to walk across. Maybe to drive. I took a very small, rickety boat. At least it seemed rickety to me. It has a ruined and decrepit castle/monestary.
The story is unique because it is clever and unpredictable. It is chick lit but not as light reading as a usual chick lit. Included are new characters, Star Wars references, and a surprising pet. I really enjoyed this one.
