When she is given the opportunity to move to a remote tidal island off the Cornish Coast, Marisa Rossi decides some peace and quiet might be just what she needs.
Since the death of her beloved grandfather back in Italy, she's been struggling to find a way out of her grief. Perhaps this will be the perfect place for her to recuperate.
But Mount Polbearne is a far cry from the sleepy little place she was imagining. Between her noisy piano-teaching Russian neighbour and the hustle and bustle of a busy community, Marisa finds solitude is not so easy to come by. Especially when she finds herself somehow involved with a tiny local bakery desperately in need of some new zest to save it . . .

I think my heart truly belongs to the Island of Mure books, but the Little Beach Street Bakery series has much to recommend it including a portly puffin. In anticipation of this being released, I quickly reread the first three and it was good to remind myself of Polly and Huckle and their strange Cornish village on an island.
This book, number 4, follows familiar characters but introduces two new ones who are the main focus of the story: Maris and Alexei (love Alexei). They are new arrivals to the island and the story traces how one becomes involved in the community of the island rather quickly, while the other - rendered a hermit due to grief - withdraws and hides away. My favourite bit was the skype link to Italy...
Loved every minute - read it in about a day and a half - was like a gorgeous box of chocolates without the calories. (However the chocolate I ate while reading it, unfortunately, did)
If you haven't read Jenny Colgan start with her very early lovely ones: Amanda's Wedding, Do you Remember the First Time, The Good the Bad and the Dumped, for example then grab a copy of A very Distant Shore (Mure no 0.5) and fill your boots with stories of the wonderful Scottish town of Mure.
What I wasn't expecting was an entire book, (well almost) about someone else! A rather sad character whom I couldn't warm to, and her larger than life next door neighbour who was equally depressing!
Come on Jenny, what we're you thinking of? We've been in lockdown for so long and all in dire need of being wafted away to paradise to the idyllic Island of Polebearn once again.
The catholic Italian grandma (“nonna”) who just wants her granddaughter to marry someone rich is beyond me. The recipes that are supposed to be “truly Italian” are not. The protagonist and her brother mock their extended family saying “I will call everyone Anna-Maria”. Some Italian sentences look google-translated at best.
I am seriously appalled. Just do your damn research before writing a book.
I can only imagine what Russians might feel about Alexei’s character. How insulting is it that the narrator says Alexei can “barely speak English” when he can clearly converse and teach in the language??? And I bet that the author can hardly say “ciao”.
The plot line is also slow and non believable. Marisa basically just wakes up and is magically cured for her depression just thinking about food. Oh okay…… cool.
I will never buy another book from Jenny Colgan again, this will be my first and last.
