Trouble has hit Jennifer Warner like an unrelenting firestorm.
The young widow of a murdered police officer loses her job and her home; and now her faith is reeling from the blows. Faced with the new-found knowledge that she has unwittingly befriended a criminal mastermind, Jennifer agrees to use her special gifts to help track him down. Where should she begin? Five million dollars worth of jewels are missing, and the suspect uses an alias and leaves no fingerprints.
Now someone is out for blood—hers.
Forced into hiding, Jennifer flees to northern Maine with her three-year-old daughter. While the new beginning promises her the chance for happiness, emotional demons from the past keep her from trusting the local doctor who has offered his friendship and his love. Jennifer's discovery of the killer's true identity draws the flames of intrigue tighter around her. When her daughter and surrogate mother disappear, Jennifer must battle a blizzard and her paralyzing fear of storms to find them. Will she arrive in time, and how will she free them?

When Jennifer Warner discovers who murdered her police officer husband, she literally has to run for her life. She travels from Los Angeles to her brother's home in Maine where she hopes that she and her daughter will be able to build a new life, but danger still lurks for Jennifer. Anne McDonald brings to life a cast of characters that are truly believable and full of vitality. Her illustrative scenes will convince you that you are actually viewing what Jennifer sees, through her eyes. The suspense will keep you riveted to your chair and as the clock ticks on, for Jennifer as well as the reader, you will not want to put 'Love¿s Refining Fire' down until the very last page. Truly, this is my newest favorite author and I wait, with anticipation, for her next book. Thank you Anne, for a wonderful character that will always have a place in my heart.
What a trip! This book sucked me in like a vortex. Adventure, romance, danger, laughter, tears...it has it all. It is easy to relate to Jennifer. She is a sweet young woman who has had to deal with a lot of tragedy in her young life. She trusts a dangerous rogue that sets her on a desperate run to escape him. Along the way, she learns a few lessons about life. This is a terrific read. I highly recommend it.
I Love to read books that I can identify with, especially the main character! As I read Love's Refining Fire I felt a bond developing and I placed myself in the main character's role! Swept away by the emotions that rose up inside of my soul, I found tears in my eyes! Anne McDonald is a wonderfully gifted author who potrays her characters with such depth as to bring them alive in your heart! Sweet Reading!
This is one of those books that is hard to put down. It is easy to relate to the young widow who must face not only very real physical danger, but the doubts that continue to plague her about trusting men. The characters are well drawn that surround her. She and her little daughter discover the meaning of faith, not only in God, but in trust with people. It has just the right blend of romance and suspense. I highly recommend it.
