No stars at all for this one. I wanted to write my comments about this book to the author but there is no way to contact her by email, so I will write here.
This book takes place during the Christmas Season, a time of love and inclusiveness. Instead the author has chosen to cast one of her characters, A rich Jewish male with a non-Jewish wife with all the anti-Semitic stereotypes she could find about Jews- rich, loud, aggressive, pushy, and ill mannered. The author has obviously never met many Jewish people. I, personally, don't know any of the type she so hatefully characterizes. I did not finish the book, and this is the last one of hers that I shall be reading.

And a Merry Christmas to you, Ms. Colgan.
Thank you. Kathryn Stern Braunstein

This is the perfect light read after a series of heavy hitting books. Polly, her boyfriend Huckle, and Neil, their adopted puffin are getting ready for Christmas on Mount Polearne. Polly's friend Kerensa is expecting her first child and is totally miserable as she's not sure who the father is. As Polly navigates her financial woes and relationship misunderstandings, the novel moves at a fast clip until the surprise climax during Christmas week. A good escape book for a few hours of lazy pleasure.

I have enjoyed the other books in this series and this one was a great conclusion to the little series, coming at a happy and festive time. A great story to curl up on the couch with, under a cozy blanket and cup of cocoa in hand.

Welp... rats. I couldn't get past the first few chapters. I found this a boring start and it did not engage me to go further. I will return early, so the others waiting can have a shot.

Christmas with Polly and her Puffin Neil, you can't go wrong. Another lovely story to add to the Little Beach Street Bakery Series.
