I’m just a little bit in love with Lily Malone’s style. In her latest novel, Water Under the Bridge, clear writing, a great setting, and life-like dramas all add up to easy to an easy-to-read escapist novel that is more small-town fiction than romance.
Water Under the Bridge tells the story of Ella, ex-swimming champ, and her struggle to carve out a new life in a country town with her ten-year-old son, Sam. When she meets local fire-fighter and hardware store owner, Jake, there’s an immediate chemistry, but Ella has a LOT of baggage.
I enjoyed the slow pace of life in the town of Chalk Hill, with its eccentric characters and views of the Porongurups. More than anything else, however, this novel has heart.
Five stars for a genre-busting effort from Lily Malone.
