Jenny Colgan: Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams

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. 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.

Having read the Chocolate Shop in Paris, I read this book about the sweet shop in Derbyshire. Again the storyline is quite predictable, but the humour and the characters made up for the predictability.
