"Refining Fire," by Tracie Peterson

"Refining Fire," by Tracie Peterson

Twenty-two-year-old Militine Scott is in training at the Madison Bridal School in Seattle, yet she has no intention of pursuing marriage. What respectable man would have her? But she has found the school provides the perfect opportunity to keep her unsavory past hidden.

Thane Patton, though fun-loving and fiercely loyal to his friends, hides a dark secret, as well. He finds himself drawn to Militine, sensing that she harbors a haunting pain similar to his own.

Will they allow God to make something new and beautiful from the debris of their past?

This is the second book in The Brides of Seattle series; and like the first one I reviewed I felt that the Abrianna character took over the story line.  All were great characters and Militine's and Thane's romance was well written, but at the end of the day I was more interested in Abrianna's and Wade's friendship.

It's an easy read and one you can read in an afternoon or two.  As I am not up on the history of Seattle I am assuming the fire featured in the book was an actual event, as was the shipping in of young girls from foreign countries.  It would have been nice to have an author's note at the back explaining the historical significance of these points.

Stars out of 5: 3.5  I do enjoy this author's books, as they are easy to read and don't take a lot of concentration.  They can be stand alone books, or you can read them as a series, either way it makes no difference.  A good beach read.
