As July winds down to a close so does Hallmark Channel's Christmas in July original films as well as their summer lineup. The final film in their summer offerings is A Splash of Love about two people who have a whale of time studying whales and falling in love.

Here's what we know about A Splash of Love including a Parade.com exclusive sneak peek!

What is A Splash of Love about?

Chloe (Rhiannon Fish) is halfway through her PhD program in marine mammalogy (the study of whales) at one of Miami’s top universities. She pulls long hours at the lab, but what she loves most is being out on the water with the majestic creatures. But given her competitive field, she
doesn't get that opportunity as much as she’d like. At the top of her class, she is considering applying for a highly sought-after scholarship that would fund the last two years of her doctorate. Dr. Andrea Ware (Madeleine Kelders) Chloe’s mentor, who encourages her to go beyond their local waters. Dr. Ware convinces her to expand her studies to cover whales in the Pacific Northwest, where she would gain more experience out in the field, and hopefully the confidence to apply for the scholarship. While there, Chloe meets a whale watching tour guide (Ben Hollingsworth) and they soon find themselves bonding over more than just Orcas.

Rhiannon Fish

Could they not have chosen an more aptly-named actress to star in a movie about marine life? The Canadian-Australian actress got her start on Neighbours, a longtime Australian soap opera that has seen actors such as Russell Crowe, Ben Mendelsohn, Kylie Minogue, Sullivan Stapleton and Guy Pearce pass through its soundstages.

Fans of Signed, Sealed, Delivered will recognize Fish from The Vows We Have Made film. She played Charley, the very pregnant temp postal worker in the Dead Letter Office that Rita (Yan-Kay Crystal Lowe) and Norman (Geoff Gustafson) eventually adopt into their lives.
