A sexy, lush, and irresistible portrait of an elite African American community in Maryland. Barbara Bentley is fifty, rich, fabulous, and the wife of the powerful Bradford Bentley. She has more than enough trouble keeping track of her handsome but all-hands husband while keeping her drinking problem in check. Pearl is a hairdresser who lives on the outskirts of the tiny Silver Lake with her grown son, Kenyatta. As Pearl strives to grow her business and recover from a bad divorce, she also has to deal with Kenyatta's new girlfriend, Ashley, who is not at all the match Pearl imagined for her son. The married Jolene, the black-sheep daughter of a prominent judge, beds down more than one promising candidate as she pursues a wealthy and powerful replacement for her earnest and hardworking husband. Candice Johnson is remarried, white, and liberal, at least she always fancied herself as such until her daughter enters into a serious relationship with a young black man, and Candice's life as she knows it is suddenly called into question. Lee is a teenager on the run from her mother's abusive boyfriend and in search of her own father whom she believes to be handsome, rich, and all-powerful. Five lives intersect in the swish and swanky, rich and raucous Prince George's County. With more than a nod to Peyton Place, Connie Briscoe has created a fabulously fun novel that will delight, excite, and entertain.
