Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Lust, greed and revenge continue to drive the well-to-do African-American residents of suburban Silver Lake, Md., in Briscoe's entertaining sequel to P.G. County (2002). Grand dame Barbara Bentley, a recovering alcoholic, is enjoying a new career in real estate and the attentions of her colleague, Noah Woods, who makes her wonder why she bothers to stay with her philandering husband, Bradford. High-ranking government employee Jolene Brown, one of Bradford's former lovers, feels she's too good for Brian, the office painter, with whom she's having an affair. Much to the social-climbing Jolene's annoyance, her ex-husband, Patrick, has become involved with Pearl Jackson, a successful hair salon owner. For his part, Patrick struggles to make a home for his teenage daughters, Lee, rough and street smart, and Julliette, a snob still hurt by her parents' divorce. Meanwhile, Baroness Veronique Valentine, a rich newcomer, plots mischief behind the façade of a beautiful smile and charming manner. Briscoe keeps the plot rolling, but her steamy story is still Peyton Place with a new color scheme. Agent, Victoria Sanders. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Can't Get Enough, Connie Briscoe's follow up to PG County, returns us to the prestigious Silver Lake community and continues where its predecessor ended. It instantly reconnects with Maryland's Prince George County's most memorable cast of characters who, for the most part, are still rich and still restless - a perfect combination for trouble and drama. Barbara, the wife of philandering millionaire Bradford Bentley, has sobered up and now takes her frustrations out in the gym instead of drowning her sorrows in Belvedere vodka. The results are fantastic - she is feeling good and looking even better. When her real-estate colleague, Noah, 15 years her junior openly flirts with her, he awakens feelings and thoughts that even the most faithful of attention-starved housewives cannot ignore. She wrestles with her feelings for both her husband, Bradford, whose womanizing ways led him to ignore and embarrass her for years by openly conducting affairs with younger women, and Noah, a handsome, attentive and sensual being, who is playing for keeps.

A newcomer to Silver Lake, a one "Baroness Veronique," befriends Barbara and plays devil's advocate to the blossoming romance between Barbara and Noah. However, it is revealed much later that this royal newcomer has ulterior motives with an interesting twist near the end of the story. The Baroness is the envy of the neighborhood after building a replica of a French chateau directly across the street from the conniving Jolene, the latest former mistress of Bradford. Jolene is a scantily clad pariah, shunned by most of Silver Lake for her involvement with Bradford. However, public scorn only fuels her desire to win back Patrick, her well-respected and admired ex-husband. She stoops low and uses their daughter Juliette in a ploy to seduce him.

Format: Hardcover
Gucci. Prada. Jimmy Choo. All the right labels adorn the black "new monied" denizens of Silver Lake in Prince George's County, Maryland. For two of these ladies, Barbara Bentley and Jolene Brown, money is of no consequence. They have luxurious homes in the north Silver Lake district, the wealthiest black enclave in the United States. Jolene is newly divorced after a scandalous affair with Barbara's husband, Bradford, the summer before, but Jolene can't let a little social humiliation get her down.

Then there is Pearl Jackson, also divorced, but residing in a less tony townhouse in Silver Lake. Pearl owns her own beauty salon and is the love interest of Patrick Brown, Jolene's ex-husband. Without the financial resources of Barbara and Jolene, Pearl has no problems with priorities. Even though Jolene wants her man back, Pearl is more than enough for Patrick, although his ex-wife cannot fathom the attraction. When a new mansion is built in Silver Lake, the streets are buzzing with curiosity and rife with rumor. A huge gala is planned at the newcomer's estate to welcome virtually all of the tight-knit community. Soon everyone wants to be the best friend of the newly arrived occupant in a virulent outbreak of status-envy.

From expensive hair weaves to designer duds to clandestine affairs, Briscoe whips up a froth of feminine follies, not the least of which involves a handsome hunk with dreads who has to beat the ladies off with a stick, his eyes for one woman only. And she is already married. This is upscale Maryland society at its dishiest and the author knows how to capture a moment and a man, her feisty protagonists fighting for dominance. There's a lesson for all, but especially Barbara, who finds out the hard way that "the devil you know is better than the one you don't".

Format: Hardcover
In this sizzling sequel to the P.G. County the drama continues. Barbara Bentley, THE social scion of Silver Lake has had it with her philandering husband Bradford. All the bling in the world does not take the place of attention and affection...add to that the fact that Barbara is keeping company with a handsome and much younger co-worker, and you have a very vulnerable fifty-one year old woman. Suddenly Barbara is much happier, begins dressing more hip, and begins "working" even more... doesn't she deserve some happiness of her own? So what if what makes her happy is only 38 years old...but what will happen if Bradford finds out?

Jolene Brown has reached her lowest point ever. She's screwing the company painter who just happens to be an ex-con, she's lost her husband to that fat matronly Pearl Jackson, and she has been ostractized from all social events at Silver Lake. But things may be looking up for Jolene; she's just hit the Maryland lottery for a cool five million, and she's got an agenda to win her husband back. When she finds that he cannot be swayed by money or cleavage, she enlists the help of her ex-con lover Brian in a scheme to ruin the new lady in his life, Pearl. But Brian is greedy and vindictive, and suddenly Jolene finds herself right back where she started...

Pearl Jackson realizes that her new life with boyfriend Patrick is far from a bowl of cherries..between that horrid ex-wife Jolene and his two teenage girls---to say that their relationship is a challenge would be an understatement. But Pearl seeks solace in her pride and joy....her beauty salon, her very own business. And business is good, until the night that Pearl receives an uninvited guest......
