Contemporary Fiction

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 Thoughts

They say that truth is stranger than fiction. But when you combine the truth with a bit of fiction you can come up with a fascinating story. That is exactly what Kellie Coates Gilbert has done. She took her experience with the Jack in the Box food poisoning case and let her imagination come up with an enthralling what if story.

Where Rivers Part is labeled as contemporary fiction, but as the story proceeds along it picks up elements of suspense and mystery. I enjoyed A Woman of Fortune, which was the first book in this collection, but I do believe I liked Where Rivers Part even more. 

Kellie uses the main character Dr. Juliet Ryan to explore the topics of deep deception and the overriding need to forgive. She uses very real and painful circumstances to tell a story that is sure to hit a nerve with most of us. Without trust in others what do we have? 

Here's a little warning . . . after the very satisfying ending there is a teaser for the next book in the collection. I knew better than to read it, but I did and now I'm stuck anxiously waiting!
