Review: Refining Fire by Tracie Peterson

Refining Fire
Author - Tracie Peterson
Rating - 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Would I Recommend: Not Sure

Back Cover...

Militine Scott, twenty-two, is in training at the Madison School for Brides in Seattle, Washington. Though she has no intention of pursuing marriage–believing no man will have her–she has found the school provides the perfect opportunity to hide her unsavory past.

Thane Patton, though fun loving and fiercely loyal to his friends, hides a dark secret, as well. He finds himself drawn to Militine, sensing a haunting pain similar to his own.Sure Will they finally allow God to make something new and beautiful from the debris of the past?

What I Loved...

Thane is sweet and a firefighter. That is about all I need, but he is also just a plain old good guy. He's not the charming flirt or the brooding mysterious guy, but just hard working and loving. He's a refreshing character.

I loved the ending with Millitine's friend Arianna but no spoilers.

What I Liked...

I always enjoy reading true history in fiction books and liked reading about the firefighters struggles during fires and how different life was 150 years ago.


Although I enjoyed this book more than book 1 of the Brides of Seattle Series, I found the same issue with the first. I found Millitine, the heroine, wanting and her story seemed to be the background story to Arianna's story which I love.

I am looking forward to Arianna's story.

The cover is beautiful.

By the way, here is how I pictured Thane.
