Book Review: Christmas At Rosie Hopkins Sweet Shop By Jenny Colgan

Title: Christmas At Rosie Hopkins Sweet Shop
Author: Jenny Colgan
Publisher: Sphere
Publication Date: 7th November 2013

Rosie Hopkins is looking forward to Christmas in the little Derbyshire village of Lipton, buried under a thick blanket of snow. Her sweetshop is festooned with striped candy canes, large tempting piles of Turkish Delight, crinkling selection boxes and happy, sticky children. She's going to be spending it with her boyfriend, Stephen, and her family, flying in from Australia. She can't wait.

But when a tragedy strikes at the heart of their little community, all of Rosie's plans for the future seem to be blown apart. Can she build a life in Lipton? And is what's best for the sweetshop also what's best for Rosie?

I adore all of Jenny Colgan's book so when I knew there was going to be a follow on at Rosie Hopkins' sweet shop I was jumping up and down so excited hehe! 

The cover of Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweet shop was just amazing in its red cover with lots of festive pictures.

We soon catch up with Rosie and her boyfriend Stephen and she is so looking forward to Christmas in the little village of Lipton where she has decorated the sweet shop with striped candy canes, yummy Turkish delight, very festive selection boxes and all of Rosie's family are flying in from Australia in which she is ever so excited...But when an accident happens in the little village will the community come to together and help or will Lipton fall apart?

Jenny Colgan did it again! The book was just amazing and made me feel all festive and got all giddy while reading. With Jenny's books you can easily follow the characters and soon warm to them. When I ever read a Jenny Colgan book I am always left drooling over yummy sweets, chocolate, biscuits, cakes the whole lot!

 CARHSS is just truly magical with the festiveness and seeing the whole village come together when this terrible tragedy happens in which some people are just happy to let little Lipton go to put but Rosie will not let that happen!

Once again Jenny made this a fabulous follow on book from Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' sweet shop. This book has plenty of goings on with the village coming to together and everyone getting ready for Christmas.
I was definitely left feeling ready for Christmas when I had read this. It is a superb book and for huge fan's of Jenny's book are not going to be disappointed with this one!
