One Perfect Spring – Book Review

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 older 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.

I’ve read all of Irene Hannon’s romantic suspense novels but this was my first time reading one of her contemporary romance novels. I liked it, although I did occasionally find myself wondering when the suspense was going to come in and had to remind myself that it wasn’t a suspense novel. I liked how Hannon wrote with two different story lines that were connected. We got to read about Maureen and David’s story and Keith and Claire’s story. I felt more connected to Keith and Claire’s but that could have been because I related with Claire and her distrust of people. I struggle with trusting people and related to Claire in this way. Now that I have a taste of the Irene Hannon’s contemporary romance novels, I plan to read more of them.
