In the sprawling homes and upscale townhouses of the exclusive, largely African American Prince George’s County, the lives of five women intersect–and the secrets, scandals, loves, and losses that ensue are par for the course where power, beauty, and wealth reside.

Barbara is the most influential woman in this swanky neighborhood, but she’s got her hands full–one hand is busy dealing with her husband’s wandering eye, while the other always needs a cocktail glass. Jolene is half of P.G. County’s number-two couple–and she desperately wants what she doesn’t have: namely Barbara’s husband. Pearl owns a hair salon and lives on the outskirts of the posh community with her son, Kenyatta. She’s not only juggling a growing business and a bad divorce, but now she’s has to cope with Kenyatta’s less-than-ideal girlfriend. Candice is white and liberal, but her daughter’s new beau tests her beliefs–and opens a can of worms she never knew existed. Lee is a runaway teen, a girl whose only connection to her father is an old photo and the belief that he’s well-off and waiting for her in . . .

In The Press

"Connie Briscoe is back with what she does best: a big, dishy page-turner that will intrigue, amuse, and captivate."
--E. Lynn Harris, author of A Love of My Own

"With P.G. County, Connie Briscoe has outdone herself. She has brought us lives that are too often ignored."
--Flo Anthony, Black Elegance Magazine and Jones Media Network

"Briscoe's latest book bubbles over with enough dirty dealings to fuel a season's worth of soap operas. The action in this black Melrose Place stars five women whose lives intersect wildly...Drama ensues for one and all."
--Honey Magazine (September)

"Bestselling author Briscoe (Big Girls Don't Cry) presents a comic satire on the African American upper crust of Prince George County. The author demonstrates consummate skill as she reels the characters into a hilarious denouement."
--Library Journal (8/1/02)
