Review: The Greatest Gift (Frost Family Christmas Book 5) by Roxy Boroughs


All she wants for Christmas is...her mommy.

Welcome back to Carol Falls, Vermont, with this fifth book from the Frost Family Christmas/Frost Family & Friends series.

Heather Connolly has done some questionable things in the past. But it was all to regain custody of her six-year-old daughter, Charlotte. Finally together, Heather is now planning the perfect Christmas for her little girl.

Until police officers show up at the door and arrest Heather for robbery and arson.

Only one man can help prove her innocence. It’s Zack Jones, a volunteer firefighter...and the man she ran out on after their first and only night together.

Can he give her The Greatest Gift this Christmas, and once again unite Heather with her daughter? Or will Heather’s past keep her from Charlotte forever?

This story is a stand-alone sweet romance/cozy mystery. Series readers will enjoy catching up with town news and the latest happenings of the Frost Family...including a wedding.

My Review: 

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 believe her.  But Zack believes her.

Zack, being a bouncer and bartender at the bar, knew Heather when she worked there and knows she is innocent.  Zack is also one of the firemen who helped put out the fire.  So he has inside information about the scene.  He will do anything prove Heather is innocence and with some luck, he just might be able to pick up where they left off a year ago.  Zack also wants to see Heather and her daughter Charlotte living the happy quiet life that they deserve. 

Zack and Heather work together to find out who is responsible for the crime and clear Heather's name.  Will they be able to solve the crime before Heather’s reputation is completely ruined? 

This book is a real page turner.  The story is fast paced, unpredictable and exciting.  As with any of the other stories in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone.
