From Publishers Weekly
The fifth installment in Foster's Visitation series (after Just a Hint—Clint
) strives to be a Jennifer Crusie–style lighthearted romance with a paranormal kick, but while the setting and secondary characters possess charm, the bumpy plotting keeps readers from fully suspending their disbelief. Prompted by her young (and psychic) daughter, Cory, redhead Faith Owen tracks reclusive psychic Jamie Creed to his remote mountain cabin. Once ensconced there, Faith reveals that she once worked at the Farmington Research Institute, a facility where Jamie was treated like a mere animal and exploited for his psychic abilities. Jamie's first instinct is to kick Faith out on her sexy rear end, but she proves too persistent—and alluring, particularly since he hasn't had a woman in nearly a decade. Somewhere along the way, as the two explore their attraction to one another in raw, graphic sex scenes, lust becomes love, precipitously, though few will be convinced. Still, Jamie's charismatic friends, fellow Visitation residents who arrive at the base of Jamie's mountain, provide some welcome depth, and the mystery surrounding Visitation's latest vigilante and the secrets of Cory's parentage add intrigue.

Jamie Creed has chosen to isolate himself in a mountain hideaway, but the world won't let him live as a hermit. That's because Jamie is a psychic able to read minds and see the future. He uses his talents to protect the friends he really didn't want in the first place, and now Faith Owen, who has a big secret, is determined to make him fall in love with her. Villains intent on using Jamie's gifts for their own evil purposes also threaten the peace and serenity of the little town of Visitation. As characters from earlier books in Foster's Visitation series pop in and out like old friends, fans will be thrilled to see that enigmatic Jamie finally has his own book. This is the fifth title in this entertaining series--Say
No to Joe? (2003), The Secret Life of Bryan
(2004), When Bruce Met Cyn
(2004), Just a Hint--Clint
(2004)--and, like the other four, it is filled with Foster's trademark wit, humor, and sensuality. Shelley MosleyCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
