Ella Davenport hasn’t been in a swimming pool since a bad decision ruined her chance of Olympic gold. So when Ella decides on a new career selling property, she chooses Chalk Hill. The country town is a long way from the water, with no pool in sight. Perfect!

Jake Honeychurch doesn’t want to sell his nanna’s house, but circumstances force his hand. Listing the property with the rookie real estate agent in town and asking a hefty price means it shouldn’t find a buyer. Perfect!

But determination and persistence are traits Jake admires, and Ella has them in spades. After all, no one ever made an Olympic team by being a quitter.

When news breaks of a proposed waterski park, a local developer starts sniffing around Honeychurch House. Ella’s first sale is so close she can taste it, until a sharp-eyed local recognises her. Between sale negotiations with Jake that keep getting sidetracked, and a swimming pool committee hellbent on making a splash, Ella has more to contend with than kisses and chlorine.

Can she throw off the failures of the past and take the chance of a new start? Or will her dreams of a new life be washed away?

My Thoughts On The Read

I heart this book! I cannot rave enough about the story, its characters and their triumphs, and tribulations.
I completely got swept up in Ella, Erik and Jake’s portrayed emotions in the story and the shenanigans amongst them. The friendships formed were powerful as the story progressed. I loved Erik’s unwavering loyalty to Ella and Sam, and the hulkiness in his depiction. Yet, his portrayed physicality contrasted the inner gentleness of his character’s actions, warming this reader’s heart with his narrated protectiveness which emanated through the pages. Jake from the start is a head-turning character. You can almost feel the genuine niceness in his character that wraps itself around you, having the reader wanting to read more. His interest in Ella is heartfelt but challenging in the obstacles they face. Ella has her own secrets that are revealed. Her strength of character is constantly tested throughout the story by various challenges. Honeychurch family members are introduced in the story, paving the way for more instalments in the Chalk Hill series, that I cannot wait to read. Water Under The Bridge by author Lily Malone brings and leaves the warm and fuzzy feelings, long after the last page is turned, and it is a read I could gladly go back to in the years to come.
