4 out of 5 stars
ONE PERFECT SPRING by Irene Hannon was a warm, entertaining page turner.Claire Summers, Keith Watson, Maureen Chandler, and David McMillian; have been brought together by a very unique circumstance. What ensues is a life-changing journey for everyone involved.
Claire is shocked when she finds out her daughter, Haley, has written a letter to David McMillian. Known for his charitable acts, Haley asks Mr. McMillian to assist in finding Ms. Chandler’s son−a son she gave up for adoption over two decades ago. Mr. McMillian agrees, and sends his assistant, Keith Watson, to get the ball rolling. Keith wants nothing to do with this project because of the insecurities in his past. But, being the professional he is, he follows through with the plan. While his meeting with Ms. Chandler goes as well as can be expected, it’s his confrontation with her neighbor, Claire Summers that has him stewing. But, his frustration towards Claire soon turns to attraction.
Maureen is shocked when David McMillian himself pays her a visit regarding Haley’s letter. She is even more surprised when he asks a favor in return. Neither Maureen nor David can ignore the chemistry between them. But, Maureen is gun-shy. Not only because of her past failed relationship, but because of the cancer battle she hopes is in her past.
While these two relationships blossom, the insecurities they all carry cause the four of them to take things slow.
I really enjoyed ONE PERFECT SPRING. Each character exuded such warmth and authenticity. Though ONE PERFECT SPRING is not the suspense-filled story I am use to from Irene Hannon, it clearly shows her versatility as an author.
