Dreams of You

Tina Wainscott. St. Martin's Press, $5.99 (326pp) ISBN 978-0-312-95979-1

Paranormal and suspense elements blend nicely in popular New Age romance novelist Wainscott's latest (after Shades of Heaven). Narrowly surviving an automobile explosion, fragile Nikki Madsen now lives incognito among the homeless of West Palm Beach, Fla. At the exact moment Nikki's car blew up, fashion photographer Adrian Wilde was struck by lightning in Hawaii. In a bizarre confluence of life and death, their souls melded; now he's haunted by visions of a woman whose face he can't see until he goes to Florida on a shoot and she wanders into the frame. Adrian discovers that Nikki's running from a killer--and fearful of strangers. This is an emotional, tender tale occasionally marred by bad writing (""a detective-looking man""). (Oct.)
