One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon
Revell, April 29, 2014
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.
This was a really sweet, memorable story. Both the main and supporting characters were just right. Claire and Keith are not just likeable, but feel like real people you would know and see in your own life. Their steady, cute, bumpy and sometimes awkward road to romance was lovely to watch. Their own journey’s with their individual issues was worked so well into the story, that it felt natural. The faith element was played well, not too strong and handled with care. A lovely spring read truly!
