WOW!!! I first want to say thank you to Roxy Boroughs for writing this story the way you did. Your book did something for me that has not happened in a while. Made me cry! Stop this is a good thing, first they were happy tears. Ms. Boroughs brought me so far into the story with her HEA, that it brought me to tears. Which is what I absolutely love for a book to do. The proverbial emotional roller coaster. I love a great, yes GREAT HEA Christmas story! The characters in this book are so lovable. T ...more

Reading a Frost Family & Friends book is like returning to Carol Falls for a visit with old friends and to make new ones.

After her marriage ended, single mother Heather Connolly spent the night with Zack Jones. She took off early the next morning leaving Zack to wake up alone. He hasn't seen her since. Now, Heather is being accused of setting a fire at her former place of employment, Billy Boy's Bar, to cover up a theft. As much as Heather says she didn't do it, the people in Carol Falls don't
I really liked this story. I have read the other books in the Frost Family series, but this one could be read as a stand-alone as well.
Heather was such a likable character. I was so worried for her through the entire story, after she was accused of arson and burglery. She was trying so hard to be a good mother to Lottie after getting out of a very abusive marriage. It just seemed like everyone was out to get her. Zach was a great character as well. He definitely has quite the hero complex going

This was a sweet story that touched on some heavier topics in a way that wasn't off-putting. Plus there was mystery too! I thought that the book was written well, and I enjoyed the characters as well. It was pretty nerve wracking at times- I knew that Heather could not be the thief/arsonist- she just couldn't be. But every time more evidence came out implicating her I kept wondering what was going to happen and who was responsible for making it look like she was the culprit. The story flowed wel ...more

Just okay

Enjoyable but not outstanding. The story was okay but only to be read once. Characters were believable. Not many editing problems so the story flowed. Clean book which automatically gives it a 5.

Before turning her attention to fiction, Roxy appeared in numerous TV commercials and movies.

Look for her holiday romance/mystery series, her romantic comedy CRAZY FOR COWBOY, and her suspense titles, the award winning A STRANGER'S TOUCH, and the follow-up novella A STRANGER'S KISS.
