One Perfect Spring

Author: Irene Hannon
Publisher: Revell
May 2014
ISBN:  978-0800722678
Genre: Contemporary

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.

ONE PERFECT SPRING is a poignant story, that brought tears to my eyes more than once. I had imagined a different outcome to the adoption story, but the way it ended was perfect and the way I imagined it, too contrived.

Ms. Hannon is a stellar writer, able to write both contemporary and suspense with equal talent, with realistic characters, lots of tension, and intriguing plot twists. If you pick up one contemporary this year, then consider ONE PERFECT SPRING. It will tug at your heart strings. A prequel of her next romantic suspense, coming in October 2014 is included.  $14.99. 380 pages.
