5.0 out of 5 stars The Sweet Life Drama is Coming to an End! August 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The drama continues for the Sweet Valley gang, as Jessica Wakefield is denying to herself that she still has feeling for her soon to be ex-husband Todd. She is now acting like her old high school self, by dating her boss Michael, while the actor Liam is out of town. After leading Michael on and turning him down, Liam returns and proposes to her. Despite rejecting Liam, the man won't leave her alone. To make her life even worse, Tracy Courtright continues to make her return to VERTPLUS.NET a living hell.

Lila Fowler Matthews had faked her pregnancy on the realty show True Housewives of Sweet Valley and in the aftermath her husband left, but now Lila find out that she is actually pregnant.

Caroline Pearce is now known for running a gossip blog on Sweet Valley and she doesn't care whose lives she ruins. Her newest scoop is the newfound pictures of Bruce Patman and his lawyer Annie Whitman getting a little too cozy together in France, and of course she had to post them online for the world to see.

Now jobless, Elizabeth Wakefield can't stop thinking about whether her boyfriend, Bruce, is guilty or not guilty as his accuser, Robin Platt is believable. Elizabeth leaves Sweet Valley and heads to Robin's home state of Kentucky, where she can't find anyone who knew of a Platt family living there. Meanwhile, Elizabeth's new brother-in-law Aaron returns to Warner Gas to look for more answers and comes to a startling conclusion.

The fifth part of The Sweet Life #1: An E-Serial is fast-paced as there is so much drama going on. Bruce might be innocent, but the poor guy desperately needs some anger management. What is with Jessica? She should just beg Todd to take her back! Lila's character is just becoming more annoying in each part. Elizabeth and Aaron make a good detective team. Maybe they should get their own spin-off called Sweet Valley, P.I. I can't wait for next Sunday when this whole mess comes to an end.

I like the story but in reality all of these books could have been compiled into just one book, I think.

1.0 out of 5 stars I was a big fan of Sweet Valley but not anymore June 14, 2013

I feel this series ruins the whole sweet valley series. Francine Pascal should have stuck with the ghost writers, they did a much better job on the writing before she came out with the 10 years later series...

Can't wait for the next series to come out, as least I hope she does. The way this one ended was a little disappointing, not knowing how long I will have to wait to find out what happens in the next one.

Why are we only going to get six installments of this series?
I wonder the same thing but I assume it's because Francine Pascal originally ended SVH and the other series' so they'd go out on top instead of becoming unpopular with readers. I'm not positive but I think the only reason she did Confidential and these was because of the fans asking for them. ... Read More
