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!

this book was such a kick. now i keep wanting to use the word "queer" in it's original meaning just to amuse myself. the narration was great, except that once in a while she made the butchier characters sound all high pitched and squealy which just didn't seem right.
Very funny, very campy. Very unseriously. Nancy is a very nice nurse.
We should be so lucky to have one as competent and naive as her
When Nancy so unpretentiously decides that she likes her detective idol.
Sounds just like Nancy as a character. REally funny and enjoyable
Nancy and her detective girlfriend
I hope audible gets more of this serious and I intend to buy everyone or them. It is a very light hearted read.
rambunctiously soft spoken.
I am a huge fan of lesbian pulp novels so when I saw this one I was very happy, that stopped the moment I started listening ,the narrator makes the lead lass speak like a game show host's assistant selling a brand new set of steak knifes ,the high pitch enthusiasm killed the hole thing for me,if you can get past that (good luck) the story from what I can tell is not authentic it feels fake to me ,but as I say I'm a fan of these kinds of novels ,someone reading this for the sake of reading it may have a different experience, If your into lesbian Pulp novels give this one a wide birth.
