Book Review - "Where Rivers Part"

Book Description from the publisher:
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.

Praise for A Woman of Fortune

"Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers emotionally gripping plots and authentic characters."

 "This tale of family and faith brings to light what truly matters in life and the desperate struggle to hold on to it."--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"Well-drawn, sympathetic characters and graceful language make this an engaging choice for readers."--Library Journal

Kellie Coates Gilbert is a former legal investigator and trial paralegal and the author of A Woman of Fortune. Gilbert crafts her emotionally charged stories about women in life-changing circumstances in Dallas, Texas, where she lives with her husband.

My Review:
I loved "A Woman of Fortune" by Kellie Coates Gilbert and was excited when I found out she had another book coming out again so soon!  "Where Rivers Part" is just as good as her first Texas Gold novel; I enjoyed it and I came completely engrossed in the story and immersed in the characters' lives.  Kellie has a great style of writing as she manages to seamlessly weave together various storylines combining scandal, past issues among family members, trust and forgiveness.   Kellie has become an author whom I am sure to stay updated on as far as new releases as she is now a must-read author for me.  I enjoyed the sneak peak for book 3 at the end of the novel and am anticipating the release of her next novel!
