I read this book for the 12 Tasks of the Festive Season and read it for task the seventh: the Christmas.

I bought the book because the description sounded cute and hey it was set during Christmas. I have heard about Jenny Colgan before, so thought this would be an okay book to step my toe into.

This book is after the events that took prior with Rosie staying in the small village of Lipton running her aunt's sweet shop and living with her boyfriend Stephen. Rosie is happy to spend Christmas in Lipton and then she gets news that her family from Australia is coming to stay for several weeks during Christmas and if that's not enough, a tragedy causes changes to Lipton and also to Stephen.

I did like the character of Rosie though at times she was a bit frustrating. She knows about her family visit for a long while and pretty much tells Stephen the day before and knowing that she would have to put them up in his home she acts angry that she has to ask. I swear I tilted my head at one point and was all is she for real right now? Rosie definitely has a good heart and loves Stephen, the village, her aunt, her mother, and the kids that come into the sweet shop. But it was nice to see that she had some blinders on regarding her family (and I think she still does in the end) and was angry at Stephen for not reading her mind.

Stephen readers should know is still recovering from a landmine accident and is excited and apprehensive to start teaching the village children. Another accident occurs leaving Stephen reeling. And I honestly thought it was odd that Rosie didn't realize or think for one second what the accident could be causing Stephen to relive. She was more angry that her mother (who was awful) was demanding to know what Stephen's intentions were to her and she seemed to be torn between staying with Stephen or going back to Australia and helping her mother raise her brother's kids.

There was a secondary story involving Rosie's aunt Lilian that I found a bit hard to swallow. I did like the character of Lilian since she better than most saw through a lot of crap. But seriously when the bits and pieces regarding Lilian's past come back to the present I thought the whole thing was a bit too Lifetime for me.

We have some secondary characters like Rosie's assistant in the shop, and her friend and the local doctor, but we don't really get a chance to look into these characters much. I am sure that book #1 did a better job of that.

The writing was really good, though the flow was slow at times. I think because of the Rosie and Lilian plots the book didn't mesh together well at times. It ended up working in the end though. ( )

A cozy holiday story, even with a tragedy at the center. (There is actually a book preceding this one, which I hadn't read before I read this book, but reading it later gave me the backstory, and was enjoyable, too.) I read a lot of Christmas stories, and while most don't include such tragic events, I was hooked, and kept reading, even through my tears! I like the small town feel, the sometimes quirky, characters and the unexpected twists thrown in. Overall, and enjoyable read, and would make a good Christmas movie! I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christmas stories! ( )

Not finished. Too many Christmas books, it dragged and I always love, love Jenny Colgan. Bummer. ( )

Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop by Jenny Colgan is a nice read mainly centering on family life during the holidays in a small town. Rosie Hopkins left her life as a registered nurse in the big city to move to a little village in Lipton and open up a candy shop. She lives with her boyfriend Stephen, who is a Mr. Darcy type. His mother is Lady Lipton and she lives in the large estate of Lipton Hall. She is cold towards Rosie. Rosie wants Stephen to propose and she wants to start a family with him, this is a biggie for her. She wonders if staying in small town Derbyshire with no family is worth it if she doesn’t ever marry and have a family of her own.

One day the unthinkable happens and there is a major accident that involves Stephen, the families and the children in town. This accident affects Stephen alot to the point of his pushing Rosie away and isolating himself due to his PTSD. Much of the storyline is around this accident and the healing process for all involved.

Also in the mix are Rosie’s family, her mom and siblings and their kids are all coming to visit. While there they stir things up a bit and get Rosie wondering whether she really should go back home to Australia with them.

The author also adds Alzeimer’s to the storyline as one of the characters suffers from it. I found his storyline to be so endearing and there is a special plot twist that I did not see coming here.

While this is book two in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. However, I would have preferred to start with the first book myself to get a better feel of the characters. Stephen especially, since he has PTSD from being in the war. It is referred to that Rosie was his nurse in the first book, and that is how they met and fell in love. Also Rosie, what possessed her to leave her family and fly out to Derbyshire and open up a candy shop? This all happens in the first installment Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams

I enjoyed the coziness of the writing and the small town setting throughout the story.
If you enjoy small town Christmas stories about family with some romance and nostalgia in the mix, I recommend this one.

Christmas is mere weeks away, and Rosie is excited with the promise of good things to come. Her boyfriend Stephen is starting his new job as a teacher, something he is looking forward to. Her sweetshop is her delight, and she loves greeting the village’s children as well as the adults as they make their way inside her doors. She even falls in love with a puppy bestowed on her and Stephen by his mother, something she hadn’t anticipated. But a great tragedy occurs and suddenly Rosie and the rest of the village are consumed by sadness in its aftermath. As they try to cope with recovering from it, some on a close personal level and others in a wider scope, Rosie’s family comes to visit all the way from Australia, much to her surprise. Rosie’s life is in a tailspin, coping with everyday problems as well as unusual complications, and blindsided by unexpected declarations from Stephen, all while trying to be the peacemaker with her family and Stephen’s mother. This will be a Christmas to remember, but probably not for the usual reasons. The characters in this lovely story are quite likable, even the prickly ones have a good side, and if sadness calls, at least it is softened by hope. A couple of unlikely twists keep the tale fresh and entertaining, and just as sweet as the confections in Rosie’s sweetshop. A well-written and delightful Christmas tale. ( )
