In this artful, hilarious send-up of girls' fiction of the past, innocent, naive recent nursing school graduate Cherry Aimless is drawn into pursuing a "case" when a beautiful patient in her psych ward mysteriously disappears after a visit by a nun. Cherry seeks the aid of forthright, courageous Nancy Clue, whose attorney-father has lately been done in by his housekeeper of 30 years. What is the clue in the book the missing patient gave Cherry? What happened to the conventful of nuns, presumed kidnapped, from which the visiting sister came? Where is Aunt Gertrude? Will our heroines escape the midnight prowler? the ticking time-bomb? And then there's the murder: will goody-good Cherry and her chums triumph? You bet, but along the way guileless Cherry has many peculiar things happen to her, all made shriekingly funny by her inability to distinguish drag queens and dykes from ordinary mortals. Many a fan of the (Cherry) Ames and (Nancy) Drew series will be delighted by this wonderfully wry parody--and rewarded by a not-bad mystery, too.

Here's what it would have been like if Carolyn Keene had written Nancy Drew stories set in a 1950's gay and lesbian world, where the all the unattractive people were far right heterosexual bigots and all the heroes were GLBT. Read this series of three hilarious books that match nurse Cherry Aimless with Nancy Clue, discovering mysteries in caves, convents and under the sheets, when you need to escape. The Hardy boys even make a flaming appearance in the third book. Funny, even if you haven't read the old series, but best if you have.
This book is obviously a spoof of the Nancy Drew series. It's supposed to be comical and I thought it was. People are are seeking eroticism from this are in the wrong section of the store.
I say read it with an open mind, not expecting anything at all. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you are biased against gays, lesbians, black people, butchy females, nuns, preachers, feminine females, cops, criminals, nurses and humor, you will not enjoy this and probably shouldn't read it.
