Library JournalNorth Carolina’s political landscape is the stage for this sequel to 2008’s Behind the Veil. Margo Myles, now 45, has just given birth to twin boys. Raising twins is tough, but worse again is that her marriage to Jefferson is off the rails. Jefferson’s five-year stint in prison had Margo relying on Malik Mason for, um, comfort. Of course now there’s a question about the identity of the boys’ father. Drama, sure, but that’s nothing compared to North Carolina’s senate race between Malik and Dr. Shelton Wright. Three of Margo’s four grown children back Wright’s campaign. The fourth, Ivy, is married to Malik. Recapping the story: Malik may or may not be the father of Margo’s twins, but now is married to Margo’s adult daughter! This potentially fascinating family get together won’t happen because all these folks hate each other. Keep your eye on Toni Gillette, a hottie with an agenda.
VERDICT Perkins’s lengthy tale is on the epic side with some clunky dialog, but who can resist a mother and daughter sexually tied to the same guy? The best line from this mini-series type story? “The man I loved gave his soul to a whore.”
