In My Rearview Mirror by Suzetta Perkins

Baby drama and political scandal don’t mix in this sequel to Suzetta Perkins’ Behind the Veil.

Margo Myles is getting ready to give birth to twins, but she isn’t sure who the father is—her soon to be ex-husband, Jefferson Myles, or her one-time fling, Malik Mason. Malik is running for a state senate seat and no one is going to take the sweet smell of victory from him.

Ivy Myles, Margo and Jefferson’s eldest daughter, is moving back home. She’s been estranged from her parents, but a new love calls her back—and her love is none other than Malik Mason. Malik intends to make Ivy his wife, but will she be a distraction on his way to the senate?

Scandal and politics always seem to make perfect bedfellows. And Malik Mason must decide which woman he loves more, mother or daughter, or risk ruining everything.



When I first read the synopsis for this book, I thought “Great, it seems to have a mixture of everything I like: drama, politics, and romance,” so I should really enjoy it! And, In My Rearview Mirror definitely has a combination of all of those things and then some. The concept of the storyline is so crazy and scandalous that I couldn’t stop turning the pages.

There were a few parts that I thought were drawn out which made the book longer than needed which is why I didn’t give this book a rating of 4. And, this doesn’t have much to do with the contents of the book, but I really liked the cover. Overall, the book was well-written and has enough twists and turns that makes it a pretty exciting read!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of In My Rearview Mirror in exchange for an honest review.




Suzetta Perkins had the heart of a writer at a very young age.  As a dreamer, writing was one of the avenues that allowed her to dream big and take her imagination beyond the boundaries of the four walls of her bedroom.  She wrote many short stories, and in high school, she became the co-editor of her school’s yearbook. Today, Suzetta has traveled many miles since her early days.  She has been to more than twenty countries and has lived and/or visited just as many states in the U.S.  She plans to write stories whose backdrops come from the experiences she’s been fortunate enough to visit.  To have traveled and experienced the world as she has is a story in itself.

The mother of two grown children and one granddaughter, Suzetta finally realized her dream of writing a full-length novel.  In 2000, she penned her first novel, Behind the Veil, a mainstream suspense novel that looks into the life a man whose greed and deceit nearly costs him his family, livelihood, and his life. Suzetta Perkins is also the author of A Love So Deep, Ex-Terminator: Life after Marriage, Déjà vu, Nobody Stays the Same, and At the End of the Day. She is also the cofounder and president of the Sistahs Book Club.
