After having sworn off men, single mom Clair Summers is trying her best to give her daughter a normal life on a teacher's salary and a house that is a money pit.
Keith Watson works 80 hours a week to keep his demons at bay, until one day he receives a letter from a young girl asking him to find her neighbors son. His job however is to deal with numbers and bottom lines, not get involved with front lines.
If you are familiar with this author's suspense books, be prepared, this is nothing like those. This book deals with relationships, personal issues, love and forgiveness. It has no suspense or mysteries, just a simple story about people.
There are three main characters and each of them have their own story and personal issues that must be dealt with. But friendship, forgiveness and trust in God work together to mend these three lives.
I definitely would recommend this book.
LarikSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5unexpected but greatJanuary 3, 2015LarikSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Not what i expected but a pleasant surprise nonetheless.... this is my first simple romance novel by Irine Hannon and i was not expecting it, i'm very used and totally adore her suspense romance novels...so it took me a while to stick to this story. i liked the interchange and family relationships but even though they added depth and meaning to the plot they were a bit distracing for me.. but all is well what ends well and they all were very blessed in the end... a miracle of a naive little girl that brought them all together...
you looking for a calm clean romance here is your story for the evening, i fully enjoyed it and totally recommend it.

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.
sally893 Stars Out Of 5Not sureJuly 24, 2014sally89Quality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I 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.
Maria3 Stars Out Of 5July 12, 2014MariaOne 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.
