Catherine Anderson is one of my favorite authors and I usually love her books, but I have to admit that this one was a bit of a disappointment for me.

At the core, I liked the storyline - Loni, a clairvoyant, has a vision that a young boy is lost in the wilderness and only horseman Clint Harrigan will be able to save him. There's also the fact that the boy is Clint's biological son - which Clint doesn't know. After some disbelief on Clint's part, the two head out on horseback to rescue young Trev
Another wonderful book by Anderson and once again I am reminded of why she is one of my favorite authors! Everything about Loni MacEwen and Clint Harrington was absolutely adorable! The paranormal aspect added a twist that I really enjoyed!

Loni left her old life and moved to Crystal Falls where nobody knew of her psychic abilities. Ever since she was a little girl she’s had visions of a dreamy cowboy and would fantasize about him romantically. But now all grown up, and being unlucky in love, sh

The latest in the series tells Clint Harrigan's story. We met him briefly in his sister Samantha's book, Sun Kissed. He came off as a hot head, but of course a gorgeous hothead, in that one so I was interested to learn more about him. Clint is contacted by psychic, Loni, who tells him his son is in danger. What? He doesn't have a son. They begin a wilderness hunt for the child and end up falling in love. I was a little disappointed that there was only the single love scene, but then the characte ...more

Okay, first off, I want to state that I am a HUGE fan of Catherine Anderson. I count down the days until another of her books is released. I own every single thing she's ever written, and they are all treasured keepers. But this book is going right in my "trade for credit" box. I cannot believe that this is written by the same author who wrote the moving reads of Annie's Song, Comanche Moon, Seventh Heaven, Baby Love or Phantom Waltz, just to name a few.

People have complained about the heavy-ha
Let me first say that I hate Inspirational or Religious books of any kind. They are always too preachy for me. I'm not the least bit religious.

I loved this book. I stayed up all night to the point of grabbing my magnifying glass once my eyes went all fuzzy. I loved the story line ! Some people have review they didn't like the aspect of the mom tuning in and spying on her daughter. Come on...what mother wouldn't like to peek into the life of her daughter?? I thought it was rather funny. Another r

This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were things I liked about and things that made me uncomfortable. Before this I had never actually read any books in which one of the primary characters was a clairvoyant. Add to that, both the male and female protagonist were devoutly christian and you have a book which is a bit of a departure for me. I don't really know why but I was more able to deal with the clairvoyance than the religious overtones.

I think there was a little too much going on

This one was sort of a mixed bag. I like that this one didn't rely on the usual cliches: a playboy cowboy who never wants to get married ever, the heroine needing to be rescued from an evil stalker ex, the hero teaching the heroine it's okay to trust men again. Instead, we have a woman whose gift of clairvoyance has been a curse rather than a blessing, and her Big Trauma was being unable to save a kidnapped child instead of a rape or a failed marriage. Loni was no Laura Townsend, but I liked her ...more

Quando iniciei a leitura deste livro estava muito entusiasmada, pois era um livro de uma autora que criou histórias pelas quais tenho uma carinho muito especial.
E inicialmente estava a gostar muito e mesmo quando cheguei ao fim o saldo foi positivo, mas a história não me encheu as medidas.
A escrita continua, como sempre, cativante e envolvente e a autora mantêm a capacidade que têm de falar de sentimentos e emoções de uma forma que apela ao coração do leitor e faz com que fiquemos envolvidos c
Romancing the Book
Morning Light is 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 belief ...more

Loni MacEwen was born with second sight but she had promised herself that she would not stir up the waters again with her visions after all the trouble she had in the past. That was until she saw Clint Harrigan's son in danger and he was the only one who could save him. Clint was not a stranger to her since she had dreamed about him since she was a child but she was definitely a stranger to him. First of all, he did not have a son, and second, his religion did not believe in visions.

For this series, this isn't my favorite but it isn't the worst. One change I noticed was that there was a lot of biblical references and faith was a huge part of the relationship between the hero and heroine. This is a huge change from Anderson books that I have read. I am not a fan of christian romance but this was ok because it wasn't overtly religious. However, it was enough to distract me from the story. The second-sight portion of the book was pretty interesting and the search for the boy w ...more

Não é dos meus favoritos, muito religioso para mim mas claro que a história é bonita e o toque paranormal deu um tom diferente à história da Lone do Clinton e do Trevor. Mesmo assim gostei ;)
Apesar de gostar da familia Harrigan, ja sinto saudades dos Coulters.

I won't tell you about the book. It is one that you should read. Even though Loni is a clairvoyant, you feel like God is leading her with the help of her powers
Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is the psychic thing..I just couldn't wrap my mind around it. Otherwise it's nice like all CA stories. <3

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.[return][return]I should have spent it on som ...more

Recommends it for: hardcore Anderson fans, romance readers who like female clairvoyants
When I saw the "Never Before In Print" text on the back cover, I suspected that this one would be a dud. I was right. It's so much worse than Anderson's usual that I'm tempted to give it just one star. Usually I finish her books in one or two sittings. This one, I read on and off for over a week. That says A LOT, because I usually love books about female clairvoyants.

Basically, Loni's a psychic who's been dreaming of this cowboy all her life. When she meets him, she *sees* that his son is in dan

Pada awalnya sungguh sangat membosankan membaca buku ini. Bahkan saya sempat berpikir ingin stop ditengah jalan. Tapi saya putuskan, membaca ditengah jalan terlebih lagi untuk sebuah karya Catherine Anderson, sangatlah mubazir. Akhirnya saya memutuskan membacanya hingga akhir.
Terkadang kau tidak menyukai awal sebuah permulaan, tapi kau akan puas terhadap akhir dari permulaan tersebut. Saya rasa kalian pasti sering mengalami hal itu :3 Beginilah perasaan ketika saya membaca akhir Morning Light.
This book was disappointing, compared to the other Catherine Andersno books I've read. Since this book featured a clairvoyant, I expected to like it quite a bit, because I am drawn to paranormal stories, but I just wasn't drawn into these characters or circumstances. Loni, the daughter and granddaughter of gifted seers, didn't seem believable to me. She shouldn't have been an untrained bundle of nerves with two living generations of clairvoyants behind her. I thought, perhaps, there wasn't a way ...more

RATING STAR: 2,5 (actually)

Terkadang memiliki sesuatu yang sangat berbeda dapat sangat mengganggu. Terlebih jika hal itu adalah suatu yang tidak dapat diterima oleh sebagian besar masyarakat.
Itulah yang di alami oleh Loni McEwen.

I've read a lot of books by Catherine Anderson, mostly books that belong to the series Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan and so I thought I knew what to expect with these books. Although I've bought this book two years ago I thought I should keep this book on my shelf and wait to read it in a good time. I was really hoping to read a good romance and I really missed reading something about the Harrigans and the rest of the extended family. But, this book was kind of a disappointment because it isn't what ...more

I love Catherine Anderson's books normally, and it is very rare for me to not finish any book that I read or buy, but I don't think that I am going to be able to finish this one. I was enjoying the book, and then all of a sudden, BAM there was an incredibly strong religious reference. Normally, I am not bothered by a few small references to religion, but in Morning Light, they were not small references, but whole conversations dedicated to it. As someone who is very firmly atheist and finds reli ...more

I really enjoyed this one, I've always liked a little paranormal in a story. It's like adding faith to a storyline, you either believe or you don't.

Well Loni is clairvoyant with a capital C, she can find people in danger but it's been a major burden to her and she's been chased from her home town because of reporters and desperate parents. It's not an on-demand skill so it hurts her when she can't help.

Then she meets Clink Hannigan and oh boy does she get a vision. She's sees his son stranded in

Goodreads has this book as #8 in this series, Kendrick/Coulter/Harrigan series.
Loni is a psychic. She gets visions, mostly of people in trouble. All her life she has had visions of a cowboy. She recently moved to a new town and bumped into the man at the grocery store and had a vision of his son lost in the woods after falling in the river off of a raft. She flees the store. The next day Loni finds Clint and tells him of her vision. He scoffs at her and does not believe her. Besides he does not

I found the first 7 books from Anderson compelling reads. I'm somewhat disappointed with the first of the Harrigan boys finding love. This story had a twist all it's own when Clint has unexpected visit from a clairvoyant who shows up at his doorstep with life changing news. What I did not like about this book was a few chapters of just horse talk. I think Anderson went a little overboard with her knowledge of horses. Secondly, this book is supposed to be a romance novel instead I'm reading passa ...more

This book had gotten mixed review, mostly, I believe, because the author delves more heavily into religion and God and Catholicism in this book then she has in any of her others (at least the ones that I've read). I'm not a Christian Fiction reader, in fact, not sure I've read any, but I loved this book. Catherine Anderson is one of my favorite authors because of her character development and sweet romantic stories. I also love her stories because you aren't reading about lovers angst throughout ...more
