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 on this book:
I love stories with strong female leads and Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert certainly gives us that with lead character thirty-three year old  Dr. Juliet Ryan.Her personal life isn't the greatest with a strained relationship with her father and then the loss of her mother, Juliet struggles with guilt. It's her professional life seems to be going pretty well though she seems to have her dream job working as a microbiologist in food safety. In fact she works for Larimar Springs bottled water company, which is on the verge of merging with another company a move that will send revenue thru the roof, but a health scare from the CDC just might jeopardize everything. 

Kellie Coates Gilbert creates a realistic character with Juliet. One can just imagine the drive she has and the resentment that she feels toward her father. It was interesting to see her character grow and change as the story progressed. The storyline was one that really is relevant for today because it deals with food safety and foodborne illness. It was interesting to get an insider look if you will at food safety and how the corporate world deals with an outbreak. Even though this is the second book in the Texas Gold series it can easily be read as a stand alone work. Anyone who enjoys a story that deals with family relationship issues, suspense and a twisting plot and a satisfying end  will probably enjoy reading this one!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
