Dr. Juliet Ryan has worked hard to get where she is at. She's a scientist who is committed to providing millions with safe drinking water, and she is the quality assurance director at a top firm in Corporate America where she enjoys much prestige in that role. Her father is another story. He and Juliet don't get along, despite them both being brilliant scientists. Juliet can't trust him. Or forgive him. A harmful viral outbreak becomes linked to contaminated drinking water, and Juliet soon finds herself in the midst of a huge corporate scandal. With lives at risk, Juliet frantically searches for answers and discovers that she must figure out a way to trust the one man who has hurt her more than any other in order to bring down the parties involved.
I have to be totally and completely honest and say that I enjoyed this book much more than the author's previous book. While I still didn't care for the main character, at least at first, I found the subject matter in this book to be much more interesting than that of the first book.
I actually kinda liked Juliet's father. Sure he'd made mistakes. But he also recognized that fact. I thought it showed how much he had changed with his efforts to reach out to Juliet.
What really caught my attention was seeing Juliet struggle with her role in the scandal. As she uncovered more and more, she was encouraged to be silent. I thought that she should have figured out what was right and stuck by it no matter what.
The action regarding the scandal was fast paced and rather fascinating. I kept turning pages to find out how much worse it was going to get.
While the book was good, it's not a favorite of mine. I'm glad I gave the author a second chance after not really caring for her previous book.
I received this book for free from the Revell Books for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of women's fiction, legal thrillers
