The year's end brings a nip in the air, carolers and chiming bells, and the genial glow of love and family. But for this English village, its going to be a Christmas to remember in ways it never expected. In her comfy cottage nestled in the Derbyshire hills, Rosie Hopkins has good reason to feel a warm blush in her cheeks. With Christmas weeks away, the holiday is being ushered in with Englands first glorious snowfall of the season. Her boyfriend Stephen is starting his new job as a teacher in the village school. Her quaint Sweetshop and Confectionery has been restored to its former glory, and she has a loveable mop of a new puppy named Mr. Dog. Most joyous of all, Rosie and Stephens relatives will finally be gathering together in Lipton for what is sure to be a merry feast. But when a devastating tragedy strikes at the heart of the close-knit town, plans for a cozy Christmas are suddenly in danger of melting away. Its going to take Rosies indomitable spirit, the embrace of family and friends, and the resilient good will of a community to turn it all around and make this a holiday to be thankful for. Soulful, emotional, uplifting, and complete with recipes for delicious wintry treats, Christmas at Rosie Hopkins Sweetshop is a perfect gift for readers.

The first of two stories from Jenny Colgan - The Christmas Surprise being the second one. Loved this story and if you like sweets and candies give this a read. :-)

Jenny Colgan doesn't disappoint. No violence, no stress, just a nice read to enjoy on a nasty day.

Very sweet story with just a touch of Christmas--not super sweet, on an idealized family, not perfection everywhere you look. Jenny Colgan has a wonderful way of make "real people" in "real" situations, whose struggles are uplifting and heart warming. A very romantic story.
