Overview

New York Times bestselling author Catherine Anderson presents the first novel in her contemporary romance series featuring the Harrigan Family...

Born with second sight, Loni MacEwen has vowed to ignore the visions that have brought her so much heartbreak.  Then she meets Clint Harrigan—and realizes she has no choice but to warn the handsome cowboy that his son is in danger.

A hardworking, no-nonsense rancher, Clint doesn’t believe the pretty stranger—especially since he doesn’t even have a son.  But then he sees the drama Loni predicted unfolding on the local news.  An orphaned boy is lost in the dense Oregon wilderness, and according to Loni, only Clint can save him.

Loni and Clint forge into the woods to find the lost boy.  As long nights follow exhausting days, their feelings grow stronger, and what began as a race against time becomes a shared journey of trust, understanding, and unexpected love…

I love Catherine Anderson. All of her books, Morning Light included, are beautifully written and touch the heart. Anderson is the queen of picking unlikely heroines to grace her pages. The characters are well-done and touch you because they feel like real people. Her books always make it to the "keep" pile.

The story of Loni and Clint brought another facet into the Harrigan family series. The way the entire family gathered around them to protect their own was just another example of how the Harrigans live. Clint and Loni worked well together as characters. However, the overdose of Catholicism (and I'm Catholic) was like being forced to eat a disliked veggie so I could get dessert.

Clairvoyant Loni MacEwen has always had flashes of second sight. She's just never been able to tell exactly when she's seeing. But one constant has been her cowboy, and when she moves to Crystal Falls, Oregon to be closer to her sister she finally meets him in person.Unfortunately, quarter horse breeder Clint Harrigan isn't prepared to believe the pretty brunette is actually a psychic - especially not when she claims his son (he doesn't have one) is in terrible danger and will die if he doesn't help locate the boy.Anderson has crafted a strong story with interesting characters, enough suspense to keep the pages turning, and a fair amount of humor tossed in. This is the first book of her's I've read, but it won't be the last. Oh, and for horse people? Her horses are (if oddly named) well-handled, and the details are informative and seem to be fairly accurate.

I read reviews of this book before I bought it and I decided that I would wait to purchase it until I had extra money because most of the reviews were scathing and I found very few intelligent ones that had anything positive to say. Usually that would turn me off completely but I own every single Anderson novel I could get my hands on so I decided to give it a chance. I ended up having the extra money, I bought it and I read it over the next few days.I should have spent it on something more worthwhile. It¿s no surprise that Amazon is offering this book for $4.10 now. It¿s not her strongest and it¿s a shame because it really should have been good. I liked the concept but the execution was extremely flawed.The older brother from Sun Kissed¿s heroine Samantha Harrigan (I just knew as soon as it was clear Sam had older bachelor brothers we¿d be seeing them) Clint is the hero here and his counterpart is Loni McEwan, a girl with psychic abilities. She¿s been dreaming about Clint her whole life and gets a shocking flash of a little boy she¿s sure is his son lost in the woods and only Clint can save him. Of course, Clint is a stand up Catholic boy and doesn¿t believe in psychics.I was looking forward to the idea of having a hero be somewhat religious and unwilling to believe in the heroine at first. I thought it would be refreshing as a lot of authors just don¿t touch on religion at all but they went from not believing to believing very fast and before you knew it, they were in the woods searching. Two days later, they¿re engaged.I have no problem with relationships that move fast. I¿m a huge fan of Jennifer Crusie and almost of all her couples get together within a month¿s time, if not less (two days is also her record I believe) but I guess I just didn¿t believe that Clint and Loni were in love. I definitely think he wanted to sleep with her but I just didn¿t get the lifetime love thing that fast.Of course, that¿s not the happy ending. Loni, like a lot of Anderson¿s female protagonists, run off towards the end and the hero has to go after her. It happened in Phantom Waltz, Blue Skies, My Sunshine and probably one or two more I can¿t think of. I believed it in My Sunshine. It¿s my second favorite Anderson and in Phantom Waltz, I swallowed it because it made sense. I was tired of it in Blue Skies and by the time this one ran off, I was thinking, Jeez, just let her go. Find someone who doesn¿t run when things get tough. Seriously.More Anderson trademarks that have me weary are the old fashioned fathers like Clint¿s father (I can¿t remember his name off hand) and interfering families (Loni¿s mother, sister and grandmother). It¿s almost a repeat of half the books in the Coulter series and I¿m hoping these aren¿t around for the next ones. It just get olds after a while.I was so disappointed in this but I hope that the next book from Catherine Anderson will restore my faith in her because she¿s one of my favorite authors and I suppose everyone has a misstep. The book was still well written and there were pieces I liked like Clint¿s relationship with his new found son so I didn¿t hate it, hence the two stars. A book with a promising premise but a terribly flawed execution.

The characters were not well developed, spent a lot of time explaining their religion, but very little time getting to know each other before falling into a perfect, happy-ever-after relationship.

Really good! On thing is, I found it a little odd for warriors to have nicknames like that. Also, it may be hard to do, but I found it a little confusing when you didn't put the names of the characters or what they said it like, etc. Overall, 4 stars! <br> <p> ~D&apha&omega&eta&star

Review by Jen: The first in a new series featuring the Harrigan family that is slightly connected to her Coulter Family series (the Harrigan daughter married a Coulter son in the last Coulter book). Clint is approached by Loni with the news that his son is in danger, lost in the Oregon wilderness, and he is the only person who can save him. Problem is that he doesn't have a son. He doesn't want to believe the beautiful woman has the second sight because it goes against all his religious beliefs. Yet as he gets to know Loni while they search for his son, his mind is changed as he begins to see that her gift is from God and that she is his soul mate. I'm a big fan of Ms. Anderson's writing. Most of her books feature a character that is overcoming some sort of "disability". The first one I ever read was Phantom Waltz and the heroine was wheelchair bound after a horse riding accident in her youth. That said, this one didn't feature a disability per-se, but Loni did have this "condition" that kept her isolated from most people. This was another winner by Catherine Anderson. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. I had to keep a box of tissues handy since it was a tear-jerker.
