    Order pizza in, because you'll want to finish the book instead of making dinner!

    One thing you can never be sure of when selecting a new book to read, is just exactly how the book is going to be! I picked up Where Rivers Part, by Kellie Coates Gilbert, and was a little disappointed as it at first seemed to be one of those books that was just a fluffy romance, with all the (sniff) heartache and joy of a new romance. Boy, was I wrong! Kellie Coates tosses the reader into the corporate world of commerce and product safety, a strained relationship with a rather clueless father, an uncertain relationship with a not too trustworthy male friend, and to top it all off, a high powered job in food safety. Not bad for a beginning that will not let you put this book down to fix dinner.

    Dr. Juliet Ryan is not just your average up and coming young lady. She has earned a doctorate in food safety and has a powerful, but stressful job making sure that the water that the corporation produces is a safe product. When many children develop a life threatening bacterial disease, Juliet is devastated. Then when it seems as if she has not correctly done her job, and is fired, her world seems to be at an end.

    As I said, dont begin this book when you have to fix dinner, or you will need to be prepared to send out for pizza. You will want to see how she solves the problem and heart ache that she might be responsible for the deaths of little children. Where Rivers Part is the second book in the Texas Gold Series by Kellie Coates Gilbert. I enjoyed this book so much that I ordered the first book in the series, and am anxiously waiting for its arrival. I think that you will agree, this book is a keeper.

    I was very impressed with my first read by Kellie Coates Gilbert and I was anxious to see how the next one was. Sometimes I like a series start but not the finish and vice versa. Needless to say, Kellie writes a captivating story that I found myself plunging into last week. And I had to struggle to put it down and do my other daily chores:)

    Juliet is one of those characters that you like but at times you want to shake her and ask her what her problem is. She is a mature adult but there were areas that she still acted like a child. I think it made me like her more as I see that in myself and while it is a shortcoming, it endeared her to me. Her father kind of threw me off. We see that he wants to become close to his daughter but yet when they are around each other, they are like oil and water. Mainly him irritating her.

    One aspect that Kellie includes in her books is the spirituality. It is getting harder and harder to find fiction novels that still teach lessons and give Gospel. Carol, Juliet's mother, is the real backbone in her family. I loved her presence and though something happens about halfway through that I definitely did not see coming, her faith is strong and yet sweet. Some great sections are found in this book but one of my favorites would be when Carol is talking to her husband about God. He doesn't understand how the Gospel can be scientifically sound but wow, the lessons are straight on. An intense look into a hard subject but an excellent novel. Now comes the hard part of waiting for the next installment:)

    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!

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    Riveting drama of corporate greed and family relationships

    With its expressive prose, rich characterization, and compelling storyline, Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert is an exquisite novel on many levels, and I highly recommend it, particularly to all who enjoy contemporary drama or women's fiction. With her debut novel, Mother of Pearl, followed by the first Texas Gold novel, A Woman of Fortune, Kellie cemented her place as a writer of quality. For my reading tastes, Kellie Coates Gilbert is in the top tier of authors who write contemporary Christian fiction, and she can hold her own with any writer that I've come across in the general market.

    With deft writing that easily captures and holds the reader's attention, Kellie uses her knowledge of the legal system to unfold a "ripped from the headlines" type of story, evocative of John Grisham at times, and creates a vivid sense of the San Antonio setting. Where Rivers Part combines themes of corporate scandal and greed with emotional family drama, broken and restored relationships - and asks the question, Success at what price? One might think that the technical aspect of foodborne illness, food safety regulations, and ethics could be difficult to follow, but Kellie made this part fascinating and easy to understand. I doubt readers will be able to pick up a bottle of water without thinking of this riveting story.

    Juliet is a realistically flawed and complex character who grows both spiritually and emotionally - but often the hard way as a result of bitterness, unforgiveness, bad choices, and misplaced trust. One particular scene, where Juliet is treated to dinner at an exclusive restaurant and fed empty promises, made me think of Eve in the Garden of Eden and how easy it is to fall into temptation's trap. I admired Juliet and kept pulling for her as the story unfolds. There's also a minor romantic thread which contributes to a satisfying conclusion.

    My favorite character doesn't get a lot of face time in this story, but her influence shines throughout - and that's Juliet's mom. First of all, Carol became a Christian many years before this story opens in spite of family opposition, evidenced by these words of Juliet's father: "Carol, what sense does it make that a man died and then three days later he came alive again? That's scientifically impossible." I can't help but think of situations where, through the faith and prayers of one family member, seeds are planted that bear fruit through many generations to come. And Where Rivers Part beautifully illustrates the impact of Juliet's mom: "Her simple faith, her steadfast commitment to a man who didn't deserve her loyalty, her willingness to empty her own dreams to fill the needs of others. . . . Her mother was loved."

    I'd like to end with this passage of assurance from Isaiah 43 that sustained Carol, ministered to Juliet, and speaks to me as well:

    "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you . . . For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."

    - Isaiah 43:1-3

    Where Rivers Part is a highly entertaining and poignant drama, highly recommended.

    Thank you to Revell Publishing for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Kellie Coates Gilbert in her new book, Where Rivers Part Book Two in the Texas Gold series published by Revell brings us into the life of Dr. Juliet Ryan.

    From the back cover: 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 millionsand affording her plenty of perks along the way. Its 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. Shes on her way up in the world, and shes 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 riskincluding 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.

    Water. Water is a basic necessity of life. Juliet was working to get clean drinking water out to millions. You would never think that there would be a scandal surrounding water. Get ready Where Rivers Part is filled with tension and many twist and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Ms. Gilbert has baked greed, deceit, betrayal and corruption into this politically tense corporate scandal thriller. On the flip side of that there is the relationship between Juliet and her father, the nature of forgiveness and salvation. Ms. Gilbert is highly talented and keeps the story moving at a very high level of quality. Ms. Gilbert makes you care for all the characters and their journey. This is also just plain fun and exciting as well. Dont start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep.
