Publisher's Summary

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.

Audible v Kindle

The first Jenny Colgan book I read was on Kindle; the second I listened to from Audible - she is an excellent author and I thoroughly enjoyed both books. I will in some some shape or from be reading / listening to another of her novels.

Whilst I love reading, I have such a busy lifestyle that by the time I have a moment to myself to read, I invariably don't get past one chapter before falling asleep! I then had the idea of listening to books - even then I didn't find time to download them onto my MP3 player; BUT then Audible released the ap for iPad; so I listened to this book mostly whilst cooking!

Jane Collingwood narrated the book very well - the only things that took a bit of getting used to was the reading style - we all have our own individual manner when expressing text and hearing a woman speak as a man was a bit off putting initially - but I got used to this and got through the book very quickly.

So all in all a great book and a great way of taking in a novel that I may never have got around to actually reading!

This is the first time I've listened to an audiobok but I thoroughly enjoyed it! The narrator was engaging and her accents for the different characters were very good.

The story was uplifting and inspirational with a love story at its heart - definitely worth a listen!
