More About One Perfect Spring by Irene Hannon
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.

Hannon—bestselling author of short romance and romantic suspense—is also known for her long romance (That Certain Summer). This latest novel will certainly add to her fan base, thanks to her writing expertise and clear love of romance. When 11-year-old Haley Summers writes a letter to a charitable foundation requesting help for Dr. Maureen Chandler, a friend who wants to find the son she put up for adoption years ago, Keith Watson is given the task. Keith finds out more than he bargained for, as he digs into Maureen’s past and meets her young friend Haley, and, more importantly, Haley’s mom Claire. All the adults—Keith, Claire, Maureen, and Keith’s boss David McMillan—have pasts that haunt them, and each must face the past to move forward. Hannon’s multithread plot is woven beautifully together to create a tapestry that will enchant romantics of all ages. (May)
