UPCOMING RELEASE: Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams
Our copy of Jenny Colgan's latest book arrived in the post this week and we're looking forward to reviewing it! (It has the loveliest cover, too!) Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams is released in March and is set to be a heartwarming tale about Rosie, who leaves her life in London to run her aunt's village sweet shop.
Were you a sherbet lemon or chocolate lime fan? Soft chewy ones or hard boiled sweeties (you do get more for your money that way)? The jangle of your pocket money . . . the rustle of the pink and green striped paper bag . . .
Rosie Hopkins thinks leaving her busy London life, and her boyfriend Gerard, to sort out her elderly Aunt Lilian s sweetshop in a small country village is going to be dull. Boy, is she wrong.
Lilian Hopkins has spent her life running Lipton s sweetshop, through wartime and family feuds. As she struggles with the idea that it might finally be time to settle up, she also wrestles with the secret history hidden behind the jars of beautifully coloured sweets.
Welcome to Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop of Dreams, a novel, with recipes.
