Publisher's Summary

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.
Rosie's life is...comfortable. And even though she might like to pursue a more rewarding career, and Gerard doesn't seem to have any plans to propose, Rosie's not complaining. Things could be worse. Right?
Lilian Hopkins has spent her life running Lipton's sweetshop, through wartime and family feuds. When her great-niece Rosie arrives to help her with the shop, Lilian struggles with the idea that it might finally be time to settle up, and wrestles with the secret history hidden behind the jars of beautifully colored sweets.
But as Rosie gets Lilian back on her feet, breathes a new life into the candy shop, and gets to know the mysterious and solitary Stephen - whose family seems to own the entire town - she starts to think that settling for what's comfortable might not be so great after all.

Lovely story weaver

I have read several of Ms. Colgan’s books. They are entertaining and have very interesting characters. Definitely a “feel good” read. They are my reward for walking the dog in the woods every morning, a true guilty pleasure.

A Cozy Afternoon Listen

This was a fun book to listen to. It took me a bit to realize it followed two related women back and forth through the years. When I did I fell in love with both of them and followed their stories down thru the years to the bringing them together in the present.
