Where Rivers Part (Texas Gold #2) by Kellie Coates Gilbert

Following in her estranged father's footsteps, Dr. Juliet Ryan has devoted her scientific acumen to corporate America, providing safe drinking water for millions--and affording her plenty of perks along the way. Then, without warning, a fast-moving disaster sweeps Juliet into a whirlpool of corporate scandal and puts lives at risk. As she scrambles to find answers, Juliet must face her deepest wounds and join forces with her father to expose a far-reaching conspiracy. Underneath it all, she struggles to forgive those who betrayed her trust--not least of all her own father.

My Review

Where rivers part, gives the general description of Dr Juliet Ryan, she can go to either side or walk down the middle.
Dr Ryan has made it to the top, and is now in a corporate job in quality control at a big water bottling company. She is on the other side of the river from where her father stands, he is also Dr Ryan, and he is fighting for more quality control over the food industry. He also feels she sold out, but then they have been at odds for many years, over a family matter. Her Mother who is a Christian has offered her husband forgiveness, where her daughter has not been able.
At first I was wondering if this was a Christian book, but came to realize as I continued, yes it was, and we were being given great examples of people of faith helping to lead those in need.
Juliet seems to end up in the middle of the river, and having trouble staying afloat. She gets mired into a corporate scandal and lives are in danger, how is she going to survive, will her boyfriend that helped get her the job be able to help her now. There are so many people here with different areas of concern, and you will not know who is going to be thrown under the bus.
Will Juliet ever come to grips with taking God’s forgiveness and offering it to her Dad? Will the corporate world be her beginning or her ending? Is she the answer to the problems, or is she the scapegoat?
Wow, you are about to step on a great reading roller coaster, and you will not regret a moment of it, except maybe the last page.

I received this book through Revell’s Blogger’s Book Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
