DDC classification: A823.4 Summary: 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 again?
