|Summary, etc.:|| 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....
