Where Rivers Part - A Texas Gold Novel 2 - by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Cover Art

About the book:

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 review:

This was an interesting story about a topic you don't see often in Christian fiction.  I thought the food safety angle was intriguing, but I thought Juliet was pretty naive to think that the company she worked for cared more about safety than their bottom line, especially since she hadn't worked there long and didn't really know her co-workers or boss well.  I also wondered how she could be with a guy who would be dishonest in his work life because why wouldn't he be in his personal life, too?  I did like her and felt stressed out myself with all the stress she was under!  I could understand the tense relationship she had with her father and why she had trouble forgiving.  Her mom had a strong faith and it was inspiring to see how it affected Juliet.  This book lost momentum for me as it seemed like not enough was happening and I thought there would be more to the conspiracy angle.  I'm just not as much of a fan of the corporate setting, either.  I did find the investigation interesting.  I liked the little bit of romance there was.  You might like it if you like seeing how women survive under pressure and find corporate politics interesting.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
