Katherine “Kat” Culhane is a highly sought after remote viewer, but her gift is beginning to splinter, and just at a time when she needs it the most. Her sister Mari, along with Mari’s employer and his family, have been kidnapped. But Mike D’Antoni, a partner in the shadowy Phoenix Agency, is suddenly back in her life and could be the only person to help find the hostages. They had once been lovers who parted on very bad terms. Reunited, the chemistry between them is just as hot as it ever was. Can they put the past behind them as they race to find and rescue the hostages? And what will happen when it’s time to say goodbye again?
I think I just nearly broke the screen of my e-reader, while reading Freeze Frame… The suspense was almost too much! Desiree could already consider me as a fan of the Phoenix series, but this part (number four) is my all time favourite for now. (I’ve just started on number five, so maybe it will be topped).
Kat is a remote viewer, which means she can see things happening at a distant location, based on maps or pictures of that location. And although I’m not sure I believe in this kind of paranormal stuff in real life, I really, really wanted her gift to work to find her sister Mari. She was kidnapped along with her employer and held hostage for some time.
When Kat bumps into Mike D’Antoni, after two years where they had been former lovers, she realizes he is probably the only one able to help her rescue her sister. Mike is part of the Phoenix foundation, which consists of all kind of ex-Navy SEALS and black ops hot stuff. (If you want to know more about the other yummie partners, read my reviews of Extrasensory or Scent of Danger).
Mike realizes what a fool he has been in letting Kat walk away those years ago. And since the chemistry is still of the charts, he is determined not to let her get away this time. So when Kat turns to him and the agency for help, he does his very best to help find her sister Mari. But will they be in time? And who was behind the kidnapping in the first place?
They will have to race against time to figure out who will gain from the ransom that is requested and where the hostages are kept. Thrilling, scary and wonderfully written! Five out of five stars from me. With a special thank you to Netgalley and Kindle Press for providing the arc.
