That's exactly what it is. Perhaps the OP doesn't realise that FM
converts (at the modulation stage) an amplitude to a frequency
deviation around the carrier. This leads to the inescapable conclusion
that the demodulation process must convert a frequency difference [from
a carrier, which at this is probably not the same one] to an amplitude
Dear OP: Some basics of FM might help (google is your friend).
