Overview

P. G. County by Connie Briscoe

Connie Briscoe's previous novels have won the accolades of critics, positions on national bestseller lists, and the loyalty of millions of fans. Essence magazine called Sisters and Lovers “a frank and funny tale,” and Mademoiselle dubbed it “riveting ...lively...hilarious.” The San Francisco Chronicle had high praise for Big Girls Don't Cry, declaring “[It] brims with warmth, energy, and a positive message.” With P.G. County, Briscoe serves up a sexy, lush, and irresistible portrait of an elite African American community in Maryland.

Now meet the women of P. G. County:

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 tony 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 therun from her mother's abusive boyfriend and in search of her own father whom she believes to be handsome, rich,and all-powerful.

In Connie Briscoe's big new splashy novel, 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.

I cannot believe I wasted two days of my life reading this for my book club. The characters are poorly developed, and the plot is corny. I cannot believe so many women from my book club loved this book. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Save your money.

The story and the plot was forgettable. There was nothing about this book that I enjoyed which was surprising because I really enjoyed Big girls don't cry and sisters and Lovers. This book lacked the emotional content and description that draws you in and makes you feel like you are apart of the book.

I picked this book to read of Briscoe before I read 'Can't Get Enough' and I must say the scenery in PG county is very factual, the places and such. The characters you can relate to many of them, it was a good read to me.

As a residence of Prince George's County, MD, this book tells it all. All of the locations are real, and these different events happen frequently in our neighborhoods. The names are just fictitious for legal reasons.

I read this book while being cooped up in the house due to winter weather. It's an enjoyable, light, dishy novel. Nothing earth shattering, but entertaining nonetheless. Some of the characters reminded me of people I know.

I was thoroughly disappointed with this book. I loved Big Girl's Don't Cry so much! I agree that there were too many characters. I also think the 'issues' that they had were not that interesting. Pretty much every day life to me. It was a quick and dissapointing read. Connie I know you can do better!
