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.
As I said in my review of A Woman of Fortune, also by Kellie, I absolutely love books that are set in my home state and I still get excited whenever I hear that an author is from (or currently living in) Texas! Where Rivers Part had such a gripping story plot that was very enjoyable to read. The characters were fabulously made, with realistic reactions to circumstances and believable emotions. The author has a writing style that is easy to understand and clear, though the details do get numerous and drone on, causing me to skip several paragraphs to get back to the story. I really liked how the author incorporated her past in this book, it was unique and all of the legal stuff really held my attention 🙂
So, overall, I rate Where Rivers Part 4 out of 5 stars and look forward to reading more books from the Texas Gold series!

As a former legal professional, Kellie Coates Gilbert spent nearly twenty-five years working in courtrooms and behind the scenes of some of the largest and most well-known cases in America. She was one of the lead paralegals in the Jack-in-the-Box litigation, where uncooked hamburger resulted in the deaths of several toddlers and made many more critically ill, which is now the subplot of her soon-to-be released WHERE RIVERS PART, the second novel in a collection of contemporary women’s fiction stories all set in Texas. Her books not only explore the heart issues that matter most to women, but often allow readers an inside peek into her former legal world.
Kellie currently makes her home in Dallas, Texas with her husband and a very spoiled 2.7 lb. Yorkie named Emmie Sweetpea.
