River Heights #3 Going Too Far, #4 Stolen Kisses, and #5 Between the Lines
Meanwhile, Nikki's friend, Robin, fears that she might be pregnant. Unfortunately, Brittany sees Nikki and Robin looking at a pregnancy test in the drug store. Brittany spreads a rumor that Nikki or one of her friends is pregnant.
Moon Lake is the local hangout for the River Heights young people when they want to be alone with their dates. I like that bit of continuity with the original Nancy Drew series.
The early books in this series are much like Merivale Mall, where the stories are excessively cheesy and stupid.
I enjoyed this book.
This book is another example of excessively stupid behavior on the part of a scheming character. Even though the plot is stupid, I enjoyed the book.
In River Heights #5, Between the Lines, Jeremy needs money to impress Kim, who has expensive taste. Jeremy bets big in a poker game and loses. Jeremy is forced to get a job. Brittany also gets a job so that she can earn money to join the country club. Unknown to each other, Brittany and Jeremy get jobs at the same obscure diner, hoping that no one will ever know.
I found the plot with Tim and Nikki to be quite boring. I am sick of Tim and Nikki's stupid relationship. Nikki sees problems where there are none, and her behavior will make them break up. I want them to get it over with so that we can move on to a more interesting plot.
So far, Nancy Drew has only appeared in the first two books in the series.
The plot with Jeremy and Brittany is hilarious. I really enjoyed that part of the story while I was bored with Nikki's story.
