Publisher's Description

Claire Summers is a determined, independent single mother who is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Keith Watson is a results-oriented workaholic with no time for a social life. As the executive assistant to a local philanthropic businessman, he's used to fielding requests for donations. But when a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk, everything changes. The girl isn't asking for money, but for help finding the long-lost son of an elderly neighbor.

As Keith digs reluctantly into this complicated assignment, he has no idea how intertwined his life and Claire's will become--nor how one little girl's kindhearted request will touch so many lives and reap so many blessings.

Through compelling characters and surprising plot twists, Irene Hannon offers readers this tenderhearted story of family connections that demonstrates how life is like lilacs--the biggest blooms often come only after the harshest winters.

    Keith Watson is the workaholic assistant to David McMillan, owner of a large construction company and funder of the McMillan Charitable Foundation. Keith is assessing applications for funding assistance when he finds a letter from a child with an unusual request: she wants him to find the baby boy the neighbour lady gave up for adoption twenty-plus years ago.

    Keith is reluctant to waste his time on such a matter, until he meets the child, Haley Summers, and her mother, Claire. Hes attracted to Claire, but she has loved one man who gave up his family to chase his career, and she sees the same ambition in Keith. But she needs help around the house, and he keeps showing up and offering to help

    Im a big fan of Irene Hannons romantic suspense novels, but this is the first of her pure romances Ive read. While One Perfect Spring is a solid romance, I have to say I prefer her romantic suspense novels. Theyve got that extra zing factor that, for me, lifts them beyond the ordinary. It wasnt that One Perfect Spring wasnt goodit wasI just didnt enjoy it as much.

    My main problem was Haley. Theres a saying in TV that you should never act with pets or children, and while pets are usually winners in fiction, children are more hit-and-miss. Haley is supposed to be eleven, but a lot of her conversation and attitudes make her seem much younger. This, to my mind, detracted from the romance.

    I also thought there was too much emphasis on Dr Chandler (the neighbour who was searching for her adopted child), and David MacMillan and his family problems. Yes, it all added to the story, but this took up valuable space where there should have been a suspense subplot (*wink*).

    Overall, this was a solid romance (well, double romance), just not Hannons best.

    Thanks to Revell and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

    This review was written for One Perfect Spring - eBook.
    I agree with the review by Maria. I read half of this book and then quit. The writing was well done. But the innuendo bothered me. I know the couple was married. But, I didn't feel the innuendo was appropriate for a Christian book.

    One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon is a contemporary Christian romance. The term "Christian" should be used lightly when it comes to this story. It didn't feel Christian and could be sold without that title.

    Claire Summers is a single mom of an eleven year old daughter when Keith Watson showed up one day. Immediately turned away from him since he reminds her of her ex-husband, Claire is abrupt with him. But then she finds out Keith is trying to find her neighbor's son, the one she gave up for adoption years ago. Claire begins to see Keith in a better light the more she hangs out with him. Is he really different from her deceased husband?

    Keith doesn't want his new job assignment, but he has no choice. Adopted himself, he struggles with recognizing his own self-worth, but as he sees Claire he starts to change his workaholic ways. Will he ever find peace about how he was adopted?

    Forgiveness is the main objective of this book, and on that the author did well. She effectively showed that forgiveness is the key to moving on in life without bitterness or regrets dragging you down. I enjoyed the story, but I didn't come away from this book feeling like I learned something new. And honestly, I didn't like some of the things she wrote about the married couple. You can show that they are happily in love without innuendos clouding up a supposedly Christian story.

    I was given this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    One Perfect Spring is a good reminder that author Irene Hannon can tackle any genre. I thought this book to be a tougching, heart warming and sometimes gut wrenching read. It is also a good reminder that God is always in control.

    A good, clean read.

    4 stars.

    Magical. There's something so appealing about a story that revolves around a child's innocent request. Hannon's ability to develop vivid characters that leap off the page make this the kind of read you want to linger over. Masterful storytelling expertly knit diverse lives together in a powerful way. It's a thrilling plot that left me stunned by an unexpected revelation. I laughed, I cried and I worried over Claire and Keith and David and Maureen and young Haley who started it all.

    A charming tale that will linger with you long after you've read the last word.
