Book of the Month - November

I've read some fantastic books since starting this blog and I'd like to give some of them a bit more recognition. So I've decided to add a new feature to the blog and give a special mention to one outstanding book each month. Feel free to add your thoughts of the chosen book in the comments below or even recommend an outstanding book of your own.


Rosie Hopkins is looking forward to Christmas in the little Derbyshire village of Lipton buried under a thick blanket of snow. Her sweetshop is festooned with striped candy canes large tempting piles of Turkish Delight crinkling selection boxes and happy sticky children. She's going to be spending it with her boyfriend Stephen and her family flying in from Australia. She can't wait.

But when a tragedy strikes at the heart of their little community all of Rosie's plans for the future seem to be blown apart. Can she build a life in Lipton? And is what's best for the sweetshop also what's best for Rosie?
I'd been looking forward to reading Christmas at Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop as soon as I saw the gorgeous festive cover - and I wasn't disappointed by the story inside. The book is filled with fantastic characters and drama around every corner. The little village of Lipton, which is quickly filling with snow, is the perfect location for a festive read and I enjoyed every single page.
