Winner of the Romantic Novelists' Association Romantic Novel of the Year 2013.

Winner of the Romantic Novelists' Association Romantic Comedy Novel Award 2013.

Full of warmth, humour and fun, and a homage to Refreshers, Spangles and Star Bars. Rosie leaves a busy life in London and her boyfriend to help her elderly Aunt sort out a sweet shop she has run since WW2. It is not as she expected at all... Jenny Colgan really is the Queen of Chick-Lit and this indulgent, witty, charming story won't disappoint her fans.

 

Pia Fenton, RNA Chairman said, "The standard was so high this year that every finalist can be justly proud of her book. Unfortunately there can only be one winner and our warmest congratulations go to Jenny Colgan, who produced a real page-turner of a novel, combining romance, comedy and nostalgia. She thoroughly deserves her win."

Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop of Dreams Synopsis

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.
