Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This continues the lives of Rosie Hopkins and her fiancé Stephen which gives you a good update at the front of the book so you could start the story here, only it would be better to begin with Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop. Here Rosie and Stephen are blissfully happy, Rosie is pregnant but then loses the baby and discovers she can probably never have another. If I tell you they go off to Africa you’ll probably guess what happens … but there is a lot of drama attached to their visit and a lot of adjusting to do once they get home.

If you like Jenny Colgan you might also like to read books by Carmen Reid, Jane Green and Carole Matthews.
