“You have contributed to the delinquency of an author! It has been at least a year since I have taken the time to read a fiction book, and what a pleasure it was to be able to break my fast with Tested by Fire.” —Deidre Pool

“Kathy Herman’s voice is almost poetic in her storytelling. The plot and suspense are well done.” —Romantic Times

Tested by Fire is the first book in the ‘Baxter Series.’ This exciting, Christian-based mystery is the first novel by award-winning poet, Kathy Herman, but she writes like a veteran. The secondary characters add extra depth and realism to this moving story. Ms. Herman does an expert job of interweaving a message of faith and hope with a dramatic, suspenseful story.
