Were you a sherbet lemon or chocolate lime fan? Penny chews 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.

I purchased this book in desperation as there is nothing new from my favourite authors.
It was so light I just kept skipping many parts just to get through it. The storyline was just not for me.
I have already purchased Christmas at the Cupcake cafe at the same time and only listened to a couple of chapters and found it boring so jumped to this book.
So if that one is similar to this no I would not.
I like a book with a bit of substance but there was nothing much to this at all.
Jane Collingwood is fantastic and the ONLY reason I listened to the book at all.
Disappointment that once again I have wasted a credit.
