One Perfect Spring...Review

About the book:
Independent single mom Claire Summers is doing her best to make lemonade out of the lemons life has handed her. Workaholic Keith Watson is interested only in the bottom line--until a letter from Claire's eleven-year-old daughter reaches his desk and changes everything.

As the executive assistant to a philanthropic businessman, Keith is used to fielding requests for donations. But the girl isn't asking for money. She wants help finding the long-lost son of a neighbor. As Keith reluctantly digs into this assignment in his usual results-oriented style, he has no idea how involved he and Claire will become--nor how unusual the results will actually be. Who could have guessed that a child's kindhearted request would bring love and hope to so many lives . . . including his own?

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

Haley Summers is a charming eleven-year-old who simply wants to help her neighbor.  She never could have imagined the events that would unfold after sending a letter to philanthropist David McMillan.  Having lost his wife to cancer and having realized that he lost many years with his daughter because of his workaholic ways, David is eager to answer Haley's request.  He tasks his executive assistant with the job of locating the adopted son.  Keith Watson is his own type of workaholic and begins this new assignment with significant resentment.  Meeting Haley and her mother, however, compels him to get to know them and he discovers that life hold a great deal of more joy than he ever imagined.

Irene Hannon never disappoints and once again she has given us a compelling story with terrific characters.  Her Christian elements are always strong, but not preachy.  Her stories are clean and captivating.  Her heroes are flawed, but strong.

Absolutely enjoyable.
