The Case of the Not-so-Nice Nurse – audiobook review

282574

Cherry Aimless and I have at least one thing in common: our admiration of teen super sleuth, Nancy Dre…er, Nancy Clue. Narrator Emily Beresford captures the playful spirit of Mabel Maney’s The Case of the Not-so-Nice Nurse. Originally published in 1991, this tongue-in-cheek combo parody (with a queer twist) of the Nancy Drew mystery series and the nurse-cum amateur-investigator series, Cherry Ames, is even more fun in audio form.

Cherry, a clueless nurse with a heart of gold, is about to take a well-deserved vacation from her job at a busy hospital in Seattle, when chaos erupts. Beresford deftly channels the young woman’s perky helpfulness and oblivious nature, treading a fine line between endearing and annoying. Along the way to California, Cherry picks up a few friends and meets her idol, Nancy Clue. All characters are given distinct vocal profiles. This enhances the humor and increases listener immersion. Together, the women pool their talents and resources to solve the mystery.  

***Book two in the series, The Case of the Good-for-Nothing Girlfriend, follows up on the traumatic backstory of Nancy Clue, her father, and much-beloved housekeeper.***
