This book for me was not only heartwarming it was one that will stay with me for a long for me I felt that I went on this journey with the characters and the storyline is simply stunning and unique no spoilers from me but this is a must read book after I had finshed reading I was left wanting more this is so different from Lisa other books..It telly did blow me away.. I will admit I needed tissues this worth so much more than 5 stars in my opinion I don't think there would ever be enough stars to rate how good this book is well done lisa
The Same Deep Water, is one of those books. It wasn't a conventional love story, a light and breezy easy beach read, or even a hairy gorgeous man tearing off on a huge bike, throwing his torn clothes at ladies sighing at the side lines. Nope, it was so much more.
Right from the first chapter, this book touched me, where other books had left me kinda bored and numb. It's hard to explain how a book can leave such a powerful impression, but upon reading this book you would see it straight away.
"Why are you always so serious in the dark?" I whisper and touch his cheek.
"Because you can't see me properly."
"I think I see more of you than you realise"
It's the story of two people with heavy hearts, heavy minds, and painful pasts. They both have secrets and struggles they need to battle through daily. It's not a dance on the rainbows, whilst sniffing the flowers type of love story. It's a love story that is real, because it deals with the harsh and ugly stuff, that happens to so many people, but usually is hidden away. In this book we see how these two people deal with all their own obstacles and demons, to be able to enjoy life and love. Neither of them has had it easy, and their pasts are full of pain and sadness. But through all the heartbreaking parts, there is also a developing friendship and later love, that makes this story so beautiful and heartwarming.
'We say so much to each other yet so little, on the edge of each other's lives. He tells me I'm his, but I don't think he's mine.'
I'm not going to go in to details and summaries on this story, as it's perfect without prior knowledge. But I highly recommend it, if you love to read stories that step out from the conventional or the normal. Ones that show all aspects of life, even the uglier and painful hidden parts, the sides of us we hide and don't like to talk about. But what I loved was how reading this book, makes you realise you're not alone. I know that sounds strange, but it's almost like there is something in this story, that could help readers, make them realise they aren't the only ones who suffer, and show how others who suffer, eventually get through rough patches, and find happiness.
But anyway, that's enough of that sappy stuff, at the end of the day this book is incredibly well written, it's honest, beautiful and captivating. Not to mention the stunning scenery and background to all the places Guy and Phe travel to, whilst on their journey through their bucket lists together. Makes you want to go find some gorgeous beaches, and attempt to surf, badly if you are me. I'm also thinking maybe I should write a bucket list, never really thought of it before. This book is most definitely inspirational.
**Just to be clear, this book is not a ugly cry, break-your-heart ending. Yes, there are some really sad elements, and depending on how they affect you, you will probably well up quite a lot. BUT, above all it is a love story and has a happy ending that is beautiful. Plus the story deals with some mental health issues, in case that is a trigger for you in books.**

Most books start at the beginning and save the heroine at the very last moment, but this book is the complete opposite. It starts at the end and ends with a beginning...though let me clarify that, because this book is told in chronological order. This book is a tale that starts when all hope is gone...and yet all it takes is that last moment for everything to change and a story to begin.
I was intrigued by the concept - a young man whose time is running out and a girl who feels like she has nothing left in her life but the end of it, yet working through their bucket lists together...a list of things they want to do before they die. That alone had my attention. What I hadn't expected was to be pulled into Phe's world - which is my home town, so I recognise all of it - like I was caught in the same rip current, carrying me relentlessly along through waves and dangerous undertow to...what, exactly? There's no way you can predict the ending to this one - it's not what you expect, but hope for, and you absolutely have to know.
Phe is a very vulnerable character, yet throughout the book she has a strength that even she doesn't see. Poignant and sad, yet daring to hope and maybe even love...
I read this book pretty much in one sitting, because like any good wave, this is one you MUST ride until the end. Five stars, no question.
This is another beautiful romance by Lisa Swallow. It's different from her popular Blue Phoenix rockstar romance series but I really enjoyed this book - in fact, I think it might be my favourite LS novel.
The author has told a heartfelt story that really tugged at my heartstrings. I read it in two sittings and yes, it made me stay up way past my bedtime. And it made me cry, more than once!
I think the way this author handles fragile human emotions is really quite magical. The characters are not perfect, and the supporting characters are also multi-faceted. There's nothing dumbed down or superficial about LS's romance stories. I was deeply invested in Phe, and admired her resilience and strength. I was also cheering for the hero, Guy, even when it seemed for a little while that he might be irredeemable.
I had a feeling there was a mystery behind Guy but I totally didn't work out what it was. It was an excellent twist in the plot.
I also loved the Perth setting - so many places I recognised! Looking forward to the next Lisa Swallow book.
