Cliche filled sugary sweet chick-lit
Would you try another book written by Jenny Colgan or narrated by Lucy Price-Lewis?
I would certainly not read another Jenny Colgan book. I would probably give the narrator another listen- I found Rosie's voice sugary and annoying but the rest of her narration was bearable.
Would you be willing to try another book from Jenny Colgan? Why or why not?
No. Too much of a stereotyped chick-lit read. Found the plot unbelievable and characters unlikeable.
What aspect of Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance might you have changed?
The voice she gave Rosie
Did Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop inspire you to do anything?
Yes- not listen to any chick -lit authors for a while!
