Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop (2013)
language
English
4.17 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Chick-lit? Romantic? Certainly. And as a male reader I am not embarrassed to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this Rosie Hopkins delight. I became totally immersed with the wonderful location of Lipton, the characters - Rosie, Stephen, Lilian, Hetty, Mrs Laird, Dr Moray - love them ...

English
4.15 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I picked this up as I had just been bought Christmas at Rosie Hopkins sweet shop so I thought what more to get me excited about this wonderful time of year than two Christmas books? The Christmas Surprise pretty much follows straight on from the previous book and I loved every se...
Meet Me at the Cupcake Café (2011)

English

review 1: A typical chick-lit book, but the pacing was a bit hit-or-miss, long sections dragged on where you knew what was coming and just had to wait for the author to finally get there, or where a scene that should have been enjoyably climactic went by without much fanfare (or with odd e...

review 1: LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. I finished this at 7am this morning after staying up all night because I couldn't sleep and I can't wait to go back and take down all the recipes. A classic love story with twists of tragedy, the past, and of course, sugar. I loved all the characters, mo...
The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris (2013)

review 1: Actually fairly substantive for a chick lit book with such a cutesy cover. I read one of Jenny Colgan's previous books and was favorably impressed, so thought I would try again, and didn't regret it. The protagonist finds herself in a reasonably realistic romance -- even though i...

review 1: It was a really enjoyable read, though not as delightful as the first book about the Cupcake Cafe. I found it nice to see the characters develop into another direction, and then come back to themselves in the end. Issy is still the same wonderful person she always was, though sli...

review 1: *Claps* Well done Jenny. This is your best book by far. And look! It's not even been given away free with a magazine, somebody actually paid for this! Okay I'll stop being mean now. I just have a love hate relationship with Jennys books. I like the main character which was a good...

review 1: I just love Jenny Colgan books, I know they are all vey similar and the Little Beach Street Bakery is no different. Polly and Chris' business has failed and they are bankrupt. The only place she can afford to live is in a remote village in Cornwall, where she ends up baking br...

review 1: A clever novel about how the past, and even terrible old boyfriends, always looks rose-tinted when you look back. Posy is engaged, but not sure that she wants to be marrying this particular man. She uses Facebook to track down old flames just to check that they're not who she sho...

review 1: A very contemporan and realistic story about a new start in life and following your dreams and passions.The intrigue, the characters and most importantly the relationships in the story are so realistically created that by the end of the book you feel like you know all of them and...

review 1: Thanks to novels like The Devil Wears Prada (and their accompanying films), I was not exactly predisposed to what is most often termed 'chick lit.' I guess I always thought that they were aimless fluff, novels that either glamorise over consumption and imply women's happiness lie...

review 1: 2.5 stars. Ehhhhhh. Okay, so it was sweet. Sickly sweet, maybe. There were some enjoyable parts, but mostly the story felt rather bland. Rosie tries to appear feisty, but you can tell she's faking it. Lillian dropped the tough aunt demeanour too quickly for my liking, and in gene...

review 1: When "Sweetshop of Dreams" opens, Rosie absolutely hates her job. She tries to put on a brave face for those around her but she can't help but feel like there has to be something else out there for her so when her aunt needs her to run her old-fashioned sweet shop in the English ...

review 1: A good book. I liked how the two narratives paralleled each other from different time periods.I did feel that the last few chapters were a bit rushed and I think the characters would have reacted to things with a little more feeling.The descriptions of Paris were lovely, however,...

review 1: Lovely characters with a vibrant past.I do think the beginning was solid and bulky with details, and everything just slowly faded (as if sun dried) toward the end. I wanted more, truly. There are so many perfect moments in this book, though, and I guess those moments are worth th...

review 1: The second book that I have read from this author, I love how Colgan incorporates food (chocolate or cupcakes) into her stories and gives them a respect that one would expect from characters. Issy is a year into running her Cupcake Café, and when I finished this, I added Meet Me...
