Where Rivers Part, by Kellie Coates Gilbert

book coverPublisher’s Summary:

Success too often comes with a price. Juliet never imagined it could be so high.

Dr. Juliet Ryan has devoted her considerable scientific acumen to corporate America, providing safe drinking water for millions–and affording her plenty of perks along the way. It’s not the path her estranged father would have her take, but then Juliet finds it difficult to maintain respect for a man she cannot trust. She’s on her way up in the world, and she’s not going to let anything drag her down.

But when a fast-moving disaster sweeps Juliet into a whirlpool of corporate scandal, lives are at risk–including those of some of the people closest to her. As she scrambles to find answers, Juliet must face her deepest wounds and join forces with the one who has hurt her most in order to expose a far-reaching conspiracy.

Like a mighty river with twists and turns and hidden rocks, this engrossing story will sweep you relentlessly along as it fearlessly explores the seduction of success, the fear of giving up control, and the redemptive power of learning to forgive.

My Take:

The second novel in the Texas Gold series is set in San Antonio, where we meet Dr. Juliet Ryan, her colleagues and her family. She’s the quality assurance director of a bottled water company, whose owner is determined to take the brand worldwide. She’s also dating the vice president of marketing and sales. Juliet doesn’t think she has anything to worry about when a food poisoning outbreak hits the city, until the CDC tracks the source to her company’s biggest client. Juliet is about to learn just who she can trust when her career is on the line, and it isn’t who she thinks.

Where Rivers Part is a high paced legal drama that I found difficult to put down. It’s full of twists and turns, and not without tragedy. Juliet is caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place, even as her family goes through its own turmoil. At times she acts somewhat naively, but I think we all want to believe the best about a person or a situation. Juliet isn’t a Christian, and does participate in some non-Christian behaviors, but she’s not without Christian influences in her life. Ultimately, she comes out of the situation wiser than when she went in to it.
