Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop: A Novel

We rated this book:


It’s December, and Rosie Hopkins is getting ready for an idyllic holiday in her new home in Lipton. Her sweetshop, which she took over from her great aunt, is flourishing, and her boyfriend Stephen is thriving in his new job as a school teacher at the local elementary. Her lovable new dog is the proverbial icing on the cake. But changes come as changes do, and when Rosie’s family plans a visit coinciding with Christmas, Rosie finds herself struggling to figure out where to house them and how to keep them busy, and she worries that they won’t like her new hometown… or her boyfriend’s family. And then, a horrible accident makes everything even more chaotic. Suddenly, Rosie’s plans are up in smoke, and only time will tell if she can sort everything out again.

Jenny Colgan delivers a cozy, fluffy novel with Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop, a sequel to her previous book starring the lovely Rosie (but able to stand independently for readers who have not read that story). The story is primarily told from Rosie’s viewpoint, but readers also see things from the eyes of Stephen and Rosie’s great aunt Lilian, as well as from a few other characters. This book is fun and lighthearted, despite the few tragic turns, and readers will walk away from it with a feeling of joy that all is right in the world.
