After a breakup with Mike, Kat thought she would never see him again but runs into him at the airport where she is seeing her sister off, along with her sister’s boss and family.  Mike is determined to not make the same mistake he did before. 

The fourth book of the Phoenix Agency series is very intense, emotionally, as Mike realizes he wants a second chance with Kat.  F-Stop is either non-stop action and suspense or very hot sex between Mike and Kat. Both will keep your heart rate up as you read.   

The author did show how some stalkers act and gives some pretty good advice about handling a stalker.  I’m glad the author handled it the way she did within the story.  Part of the lesson is that stress can play a big part in someone’s life and how that stress can affect them especially if there is psychic power/energy involved.  Another thing the author did was bring some of today’s headlines right into the story and indicated what some of the obstacles are with trying to resolve kidnappings without loss of life.   

F-Stop is also a look at betrayal and how bad judgments can affect relationships and lead a person to a place they may feel they don’t have choices.  Ms. Holt has some very great characters within the Phoenix Agency and I am looking forward to Troy’s story.  I do hope she is going to do one for two of the secondary characters that keep popping up, especially with the contributions they make to the agency even though they aren’t partners.   While you can read this by itself, you really should read the series in order to get the best enjoyment in reading it. 

Publisher's Note: Previously published as Freeze Frame with The Lotus Circle and then Cerridwen Press, this book has been revised for Ellora's Cave.

Thank you so much for this really great review. I'm so glad you liked my characters. And as we speak I am hard at work on Troy's story.
