Morning Light

Catherine Anderson, . . Signet, $7.99 (422pp) ISBN 978-0-451-22277-0

Crusty Clint Harrigan (of the same Harrigan clan as Anderson’s Sun Kissed ), is, at 37, a Catholic cowboy who’s sworn off romance. The arrival of a cute Catholic clairvoyant in his hometown of Crystal Falls, Ore., challenges his resolve and his skepticism. Seer Loni Kendra MacEwen, “still a virgin” at 31, is shocked when she bumps into Clint at the grocery store. He’s the dream cowboy she’s had visions of her whole life, and she has recently connected those visions to visions of Trevor, an endangered boy who (along with his protective Saint Bernard) was lost in the Shoshone Wilderness Area after a river accident killed his mom and stepdad, an Oregon senator. Loni tells a resistant Clint he’s the only one who can save Trevor, and soon the hunt is on. Though pillow (and saddle) talk threaten to overwhelm the action, veteran romance queen Anderson infuses the plot with all the warm and fuzzy woo-woo of TV’s Ghost Whisperer . (Jan.)
