Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan | Audiobook Review

What Did I Think Of Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan?

Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan is a wonderful holiday read. I’ll admit to being a little bit lost without context on some of the characters. After all, this is the third and I think final book of a series. However, it was not too hard to follow along with.

Colgan’s book does not in fact open with Christmas. Instead, it opens with one couple having a bit of a row. Kerensa and her husband Reuban are fighting – he’s got to go away for business and she’s angry about it – so she goes out with her girlfriends. Some drama ensues that lasts through the book. There’s also the main couple – Polly and Huckle who have a puffin named Neil. They’re engaged but have yet to set a date. And so, this book explores why Polly is so hesitate. Eventually, the book culminates with Christmas and a birth and it’s just wonderful – how it all plays out.

Ultimately, I enjoyed Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery – enough so that I would absolutely go back and read the two previous books. I think Colgan has a real special way about her writing. The characters are easy to care about – and real and a little quirky. It’s not hard to get lost in this book.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook of Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan is narrated by Anne-Marie Piazza. It is seven hours and forty-nine minutes long. I liked Piazza’s narration. She has a British accent. And no, I could not tell you the region. Her voice is soothing to listen to. Piazza does a decent job between the different characters to. I enjoy physically reading Colgan’s books, but the audiobook narration is good enough that I’d consider reading the other books in the series via audio.

On A Scale Of One To Buddy The Elf, How Much Christmas Spirit Does Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery Have?

Overall, I think that Christmas At Little Beach Street Bakery has an adequate amount of Christmas spirit. I mean, there’s snow and a storm. There’s drama and secrets. And well, this big current of love that runs through the book. It’s not over the top, but a good read nonetheless. I’d say read it early in the season to get warmed up.
