Favorite Quotes:

Can you guys dial down the testosterone, please? I’m having an allergic reaction.

Sometimes I really detest the voice of reason.

As nice a package as you come in, it’s your indiscriminate kindness, your passion, your warm heart, and your beautiful soul that made me fall in love with you.

Stop making sense, you’re starting to annoy me.


My Review:

This was an active and entertaining yet easy to follow and engaging romantic suspense story with an interesting premise, likable and sweary

I was so excited to get Evan's story. Poor guy got the shaft in Burning for Autumn. He not only didn't get the girl but, was also falsely accused of setting deadly fires. You could tell from his first introduction he was just a nice guy, and sadly nice guys don't always finish first.

As much as I loved Autumn in in that book, she wasn't right for Evan, but Tahlula was. Tahlula has had a pretty rough life. Even though she didn't know it, she needed a guy like Evan. One who would take care of her

TRACKING TAHLULA (Police and Fire: Operation Alpha Series, On Call #3) by Freya Barker is a GREAT romantic suspense addition to this series! Ms. Barker always gives me realistic characters that I would love to be friends with out of her books. This book can be read as a standalone, but there are several crossover characters from pervious books in this series and Susan Stoker’s Operation Alpha world.

Tahlula Rae is a successful

Holy heck, I love Evan!!! I swear this author knows exactly what I want in a hero and gives it to me…every…single…time.

When Tahlula’s career takes off in a way she never expected, or wanted, she moves to a remote mountain home in Durango. Not long afterwards, she receives a visit from Evan, one of the local fireman and a man she feels an instant attraction to. But when her past comes calling, her new life is turned upside down.

Like I usually say after reading a new Freya Barker book; this one is my new favorite. This book is what I wanted to read in a while. Different and something I wanted to read about.
It’s so good. I couldn’t put it down.
The chemistry between Tahlula Rae and Evan Biel is hot since the first chapter.
Love how strong and independent Tahlula is and every woman needs a Evan in their lives.
The plot is amazing. Loved it. And so awesomely written. Had me hooked since the first chapter. Freya Barker writes

I loved everything about this story!
The characters, the storyline the heat factor!
Yes please and thank you.
This author has a brilliant way of taking ordinary folks and making them into extraordinary characters.
Evan and Tahlula’s story was so juicy and entertaining. The plot so genuine and relatable!
Another must read from an author that has become an automatic 1-click worthy!
By the way, even though it’s part of a series it can certainly be read and enjoyed as a standalone.
4.5 stars!

Another great read by one of my go-to authors! Evan and Tahlula’s story had all the makings of what I love in her books; great characters, intense chemistry, a great suspense filled storyline and amazing secondary characters. In Tracking Tahlula we get Evan Biel’s story, we first hear about him in Burning for Autumn and things did not go so well for him so I was ecstatic to see him get his happily ever after. Tahlula Rae is a strong, independent and now a best selling author, but with this great ...more

I've been waiting for Evan's story since he was first introduced in Burning for Autumn. He not only didn't get the girl he thought he wanted, but he was under suspicion of arson, which is a tough row when you're a firefighter. In Tracking Tahlula Evan comes into his own and not only finds the woman of his dreams, he may just get the family too.
I love Tahlula. She's fiercely independent, smart and sassy, and more than capable of making important decisions like becoming a single mother. A

After being in a bit of a reading funk for the past few weeks, Tracking Tahlula was exactly what I needed!

Evan Biel is a bearded ginger hottie firefighter who is a genuinely good guy but who also has enough of a take charge attitude to ensure that he won't be one of those nice guys who finish last. He still feels the sting of being suspected in a string of fires by people he respected, but he is starting to move beyond it.

Tahlula is a fiercely private and independent woman who has been taking

When it becomes apparent Evan's newest interest, Tahlula, has someone after her, his protective instincts are screaming at him. Can he protect this woman whom he's fallen so hard for?



Tracking Tahlula is a fast-paced, entertaining read. I loved both Tahlula and Evan - they're so great together. And I love that they're in their 40s. If you like your romantic suspense with fabulous characters and sizzling chemistry, I highly suggest you download a copy of Tracking Tahlula today!

Evan has been accused of things no Firefighter should be, he is still trying to find his way when he meets Tahlula.
Tahlula just moved to the mountains for quiet and peace for her newest book, when her friend goes missing.
Together Evan and Lula find their way through a suspenseful, intriguing story!
This book is everything, I always wonder if Freya can do it again, SHE DOES IT EVERYTIME!!

Great, low angst read

I absolutely LOVE books that keep the angst out of the main characters relationship and keeps it in the plot around them. Tallulah was a bit too independent for my general taste in a female main character (trumping Luna who is still my favorite Barker character of all time) but her know what she wants attitude and total confidence were perfect. She was a delight to read, and having Even as a foil was awesome. Once again, a man whose thoughtful, protective and not

5 star Review Tracking Tahlula (Police & Fire: Operation Alpha) by Freya Barker

Freya Barker is a relatively new author to me. This is author Tahlula Rae and fireman Evan Biel’s story and it was one that captivated me from the first to the last chapter.

Seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of Denver, and her loss of privacy since becoming a successful author, Tahlula has moved to Durango. The writing was descriptive and I found myself easily imagining Durango, a place that I would love to

Just finished Tracking Tahlula which is the 3rd book in this series.
There is something about the series that completely encapsulates Freya's writing skills.
It had me ensnared from the beginning.
I absolutely loved Tahlula's independent, strong, sassy personality and Evan I had liked from the previous book but once I started reading his and Tahlula's story I loved him too.....I mean what's not to like, a hot, red haired firefighter with a heart of gold. (By the way I totally want to head to

There's not much I love more than a thrilling realistic love story...and Freya never disappoints.
I really enjoyed the guest appearance by Penelope and Moose. That was super cool and a really nice wink to their fans.
Now I can't wait to get to know everyone else through the On Call Series... all the men and women that face danger on the daily, with a dose of true love....yes, please.
Although, now that I've met Trunk...I'm hoping for an MC series in the future.

This is the third one in the Police and Fire Operation Alpha Series. And its fine. I have problems writing a review, because Freya’s style of writing clicks perfect with my brain, and the cinema in my head. I can’t just read her books. Five Pages and — Whoop — I directly stand on main street in Durango. I feel so familiar especially because they all live here. Keith and Ollie ( P&F 1+2 ) , and also characters from the Rock Point Series . It’s amazing for me to just click so into a style of ...more

Tracking Tahlula by Freya Barker is beautifully written romantic suspense novel that is just to die for. With a strong confident woman determined to remain independent and a gorgeous firefighter that wants nothing more than to protect her from the evil that is trying to get to her. Barker does a great job with descriptions of the breath-taking scenery in Durango Co and the story that she has brought to life on the pages of this book which is part of the On Call series.

By now, you must know that I absolutely ADORE everything that Freya Barker writes! Tracking Tahlula is no exception. If anything, this book is amongst my FAVES from her, full of all the suspense and drama that I've come to expect from her....and soooooo much more!!!

We first met Evan in Burning For Autumn, the first book in the Police and Fire: Operation Alpha crossover series with Susan Stoker's Badge of Honor series. Evan was unfairly and unjustly suspected of being an arsonist who also didn't

This author gives us stories with characters we can relate to and life experiences that many have had...and this story is no different.

I loved the strong, but not domineering character that was Tahlula. I don't usually pay any attention to physical descriptions but Ms Barker had me picturing Tahlula in my head, a unique and beautiful woman. Evan is pretty much her opposite and an absolutely wonderful character. He has a wonderful relationship with his mom and is a true friend to those in his

Another great story! Tahlula and Evan have a couple of misunderstandings, but quickly work their way through them. Lots of action and suspense. Lots of pulling at the heartstrings. Sweet,sweet ending and epilogues.

Tahlula thought that when she her book became a bestseller it would be the best time of her life but instead it became the darkest when she attracted the attention of the wrong person. Needing to put some distance between herself and the person after her she leaves town to be closer to family.

Evan meets Tahlula by chance and from the moment that the firefighter met her he was drawn to her and she raised all his protective instincts. When her past becomes her present will Evan and his team be

Tracking Tahlula is Freya Barker at her finest!

We first met Evan Biel in Burning For Autumn, the first book in the On Call series. I was so happy the big hearted firefighter and sexy ginger was going to be getting a book.

Freya Barker's #3 crossover installment into Susan Stoker's Operation Alpha features the long awaited story for fireman Evan Biel. Evan has been lingering in the background of previous installments and isn't a stranger to us loyal fans of Barker's series, in addition she manages to loop in several key elements from her other Durango based stories including the FBI, the local police and Arrow's Edge MC. It makes for a full cast and a broad range of characters but it all falls into place with ...more

I loved Tahlula’s strength and determination. She knew what she wanted and she set out to achieve her dreams. She packed up everything and made a move that would forever change her life and brought her into the path of Evan....

Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about 'real' people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and some hot, sizzling sex in their lives.
