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 c

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.

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 romantic suspense

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. F

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

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!!

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.  A standalone read with ...more

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 thos

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.

Tahlula Rae is an author who has relocated to Durango to be near her brother and hide away from being in the public eye. She is sharp, witty and fiercely independent.

This book has everything that we love from Freya Barker, strong, independent female characters, hot

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 Bark ...more

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 t

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 success

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

Very clear 4 1/2 stars. I enjoy reading Freya Barkers stories about people who have lived a life and made choices that effect them going forward. I very much liked the writing, plot and characters of this story and felt the it flowed very well. I have pre-purchased this book but was fortunate to acquire an earlier version.

Freya Barker never fails to amaze me with her books. They are fill of mystery and suspense and leave you always wanting more. This wonderful story belongs to Evan, a wonderful man whom you met if you read Covering Ollie. We also see a couple of firefighters from Susan Stokers book who come to fight the fires.
Evan mets and has instant attraction to Tahlula Rae, who is an author. But she has someone trying to kill her and she is not sure who that might be. A body is found not far from where

How does she do it??? I swear every story I read by Freya is better then the last one. (Ollie is still my absolute favorite though - check her story out of you haven’t already.)

Evan is a hot fireman and Tahlula is a pregnant story writer. (Quick answer) Add in a fun mother (his) and a overbearing brother (here) and you have the makings of a well rounded world. Oh - and lots not forget all the friends we met in all the previous st

Another amazing book by Freya. This one had interesting diverse characters you could identify with and of course, suspense. I loved Evan and Talulah. I don't want to reveal any spoilers but Evan really stepped up in this one and was the best boyfriend ever. It was so nice seeing Evan get his happy ending after meeting him in Burning for Autumn. Loved seeing all of the Durango characters again and my favorite people from Susan Stoker's books, Penelope and Moose. I'm so excited for the next couple ...more

When meeting Tahlula I thought she was a perfect match for him. Strong, independent, witty, loving...all the things that make for a great female lead for me.

Evan Biel was one of my favorite characters from Burning for Autumn, and it’s fantastic to see him get his story, and even better to have Moose and Penelope (and Smokey) sharing in it. The Operation Alpha characters fit seamlessly into the story, and their connection with Tahlula is part of a great read. It’s almost impossible to avoid spoilers, so I’m only going to comment on the characters – those are, as always in Feya Barker’s books, believable, engaging, and inspiring. The storyline is pert ...more

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. 😉

I swear, every time I think Freya Barker has surprised me for the last time; she comes and surprises me , delightfully, all over again! 

We met Evan, our hero in this book, in Burning For Autumn
(Read My Review) where he not only did NOT get the girl (who wasn't perfect for him, anyways!) but he was also suspected of being the arsonist behind the deadly fires - he was not having the time of his life then, for sure and I was really hoping the, that he would get his HEA soon - and boy did the HEA he got, made me smile throughout while reading!

Tahlula, a celebrated author, has recently shifted to the mountains of Durango for a peaceful life - especially after not being able to handle the fame that comes with being an author but also for the new life she will be having soon enough!



Evan and Tahlula are somehow two individuals you can't help but like and adore, not just together but also individually - the fact that Evan was absolutely perfect for our Tahlula is nothing short of truth. He not only understood who Tahlula was at her core, her streak of independence and authority didn't heckle him like it would have another man; but not our Evan. He was Tahlula's support through and through. And Tahlula; gave that back to Evan; a thousand times over; she gave him love, faith and absolute loyalty - and a woman he could take care of without being overbearing!

Tracking Tahlula is wonderful romance between two mature  individuals who have a clear understanding of who and what they are; but most of all they know EXACTLY who they want to spend the rest of their lives with; and wouldn't settle for anything less!

This is the third one in the Police and Fire Operation Alpha Series. And its fine.

I really enjoyed the first meeting between Evan and Tahlula! Evan is struck when he sees Tahlula. Struck dumb that is! He says everything he doesn’t want to say and nothing he does. The inner dialogue of his absurdity is hilarious!

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.
