What one Christmas gift is the greatest?

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

When a single mom is arrested for arson, the only man who can prove her innocence, and reunite her with her young daughter in time for Christmas, is the firefighter she walked out on last year.

Meet the author, Roxy Boroughs

Before turning her attention to writing, Roxy tread the boards as an actress, appearing on stage, film and TV.

Look for 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. As well as the popular FROST FAMILY & FRIENDS Christmas series, which combines sweet romance with cozy mystery.

If you didn't like writing books, what would you do for a living?

 I’ve had all sorts of jobs.
I studied drama at university and have appeared in TV shows, commercials and movies. I’ve been a historical interpreter and dressed up as characters from the past for tourists. I’ve been a radio announcer, done voice-overs, taught drama, worked in a factory, waited tables…I’ve even managed a retail store.

BUT, if I were going to choose something completely different, I’d either become a filmmaker (screenwriting and directing) or a psychologist. Hey, maybe I’d push Dr. Phil out and have my own TV show—Dr. Roxy.

Do you read your reviews? Do you respond to them, good or bad? Do you have any advice on how to deal with the bad?

I definitely read reviews. And I don’t respond to them, other than to say thank you, regardless of whether the reviewer liked or disliked the book. It’s one person’s perspective, so you must keep that in mind. Of course, I want everyone to LOVE my books. But that’s not realistic. Not everyone likes broccoli, right? Heck, I know some people who don’t like chocolate. Go figure!

Do you drink? Smoke?
I love a good wine. Preferably red with a great big taste.

I’ve smoked on stage, but never in real life. I was ill as a child—had pneumonia a few times—and the doctor warned that I should never smoke. Or even be around cigarette smoke. After hearing that, my dad went cold turkey. That wonderful man passed away in 2004. I miss him every day.
Do you have any scars? What are they from? 

Scars are a part of life, and I have a few. Of the two largest, one is across my lower belly—the operation that cured me of that childhood illness. The other is on my left breast and it’s from a lumpectomy. Yes, I’m a cancer survivor!
The Greatest Gift 

Heather Connolly has done some questionable things in the past. But it was all to regain custody of her six-year-old daughter, Lottie. 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 Lottie 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.
