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.

Our customer reviews

My daughter and I loved this book. Neither of us could put it down and stayed up to all hours soaking up as much of it as we could. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody that loves a suspenseful rom com (unless they need to get lots of sleep.. in that case wait to read it when you're on holidays!)show more
