Nurse Cherry Aimless's first vacation from her hectic career in a big-city hospital takes her to visit her spinster Aunt Gertrude in thrilling San Francisco. Wistfully trading her starched white cap and dress for a bright yellow poplin frock with a flared skirt, young Cherry takes to the highway, never imagining the gay adventures that await her. Imagine her surprise to learn that Aunt Gertrude has been kidnapped!

Armed only with the contents of her purse, and with the help of new chums Midge, Velma, and a dashing female police officer named Jackie, the plucky but innocent Cherry must save her aunt, find a gaggle of missing nuns, and stop an illegal land grab - all under the warm gaze of her hero, girl detective Nancy Clue. And when the queer caper has ended, will there be a chance for Nancy and Cherry?

Mabel Maney's camp classic The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse has been beloved by readers since it was first published in 1993. This sparkling parody of 1950s girl adventure stories will make you laugh out loud and long for a lemon Jell-O mold. Golly, it's a good time!

    " Another campy romp through 1950s girl-sleuthing with Cherry Aimless and Nancy Clue. While the gay stereotypes are all present and accounted for, the hilarious situations and dialogue is enough to keep you turing the pages. The meticulous descriptions of the clothes the characters wear, along with the penchant for the primary characters to creelingly ogle other women just adds spice to this quick, harmless read. "

    " The mystery in this book was pretty fantastical and out there, but that's what made it so 50s. It's not like any of those mysteries were really 'plausible', but they were always fun, and always campy. Just like in this book. It really feels like a book from that era, where what Nancy Drew (or in this case, Clue) was wearing was just as or even more important than what mystery she was actually solving. The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse also brought all that homoeroticism full circle and gave it a full spotlight. As if nobody could see all the tension between Nancy, Bess and George. :p "

    " Charming. A classic parody (it got the details, tone, and structure right) with some swoony romance thrown in. "
