Great follow up to Valley of the Dolls, The chacters are still as strong and interesting as the first and the author who took over I must say did a GREAT job staying true to the story, plus we finally find out what happened to Anne Welles,Lyon Burke and that nasty Nellie O'Harra.A real page turner,I highly recommend it!!

Not as good as the original. The timeline didn't sync up so that bothered me a bit, but still a good light read.

An interesting "what if type of book." Rae Lawrence steps in and takes Jacqueline Susann's draft idea into the '80s and updates the characters for a more modern world. It is a pretty good read but after having read what Jackie really wrote it sometimes is hard read what someone else writes. After all, there was only one Jacqueline Susann!

It was great to find out what happened to the characters from Valley of the Dolls. A light read. The time frame is ridiculously off, but if you know that and pretend not to notice, you'll enjoy it.

Was so excited to continue on with the characters but disappointed with the bits of smutty romance novel that were snuck in. Could have done with out it and it took all the classiness out of the story.

I originally read this when it was first published. I thought Rae Lawrence did a great job of staying true to Jackie Susann's characters while allowing them to age realistically. Her explanation of how she played with the timeline added to the credulity of the book. Recommended.
