Home for Christmas by Roxy Boroughs is the second installment in the trilogy, “A Frost Family Christmas.” Although part of a trilogy, Home for Christmas can be a stand alone novella. The three novella’s are so heartwarming, however, I really can’t see how anyone would want to read one without the others. There is an underlying mystery that tie the three novella’s together. After reading the first installment, I eagerly started Home for Christmas which features another of the Frost siblings, James. James Frost seems to be the black sheep of the family. He has several secrets and a heartbreaking past in his hometown of Carol Falls, Vermont. He returns home on a business trip and reconnects with his family and his one true love, April. James is intent on proving to all that he’s done well for himself. As he works toward this goal, secrets are revealed and it takes everything he has to face his past. The characters in Home for Christmas are well developed. I was quickly endeared to them and immersed in the story. There were several times while reading that I had those moments that all readers love – those “jaw dropping” moments when a turn in the plot takes you completely by surprise. I was reluctant for the story to end and found myself craving to read more. Even though Home for Christmas was a great stand alone novella, I will be moving on to the third installment of “A Frost Family Christmas” and I can hardly wait!

James Frost is returning to his hometown of Carol Falls, Vermont. He had grown up here. Stolen his first kiss here and ran away as fast as he could, taking a lot of secrets with him. What his family and friends don't know is he's scouting for a location for a new Getalot store. Before heading to his family home, he decides to stop in town to watch the Holiday festivities in the middle of town. He watches the skaters on the ice rink and waits for the lighting of the Christmas tree. Then, he spots his former girlfriend April. He hasn't seen her in 10 years. She now has a young son. April has inherited her late grandfather's maple syrup farm. She has plans of fixing up the home and creating a school for autistic children, like her Liam. James wants to help her with her dream. But, will his job ruin everyone's dreams when the town finds out about his plans for the big box store. A store like that will hurt local businesses including his own family's. The mystery of baby Holly is still hanging around too. Local girl Heather tells James the baby is his. But, she she really? And, how does this effect the relationship that James and April are trying to get back? This is book 2 of the Frost Family Christmas stories and a great addition to the first. These stories are so well written, I can't wait to start the third and final story.
