The Case Of The Good-For-Nothing Girlfriend
“The Funniest Damn titles in gay Fiction” – Instinct
If you travel with the Nurses' Guide to Snakes or can get a raisin pie stain out of a pink poplin frock, you'll fit right in with Nancy Clue and her gay chums on a road trip from sleepy Pleasantville, Idaho, to sparkling River Depths, Illinois, where Hannah, Nancy's beloved housekeeper, stands wrongfully accused of murder! Nurse Cherry Aimless, who fell head–over–penny–loafers for the world–famous girl detective in The Case of the Not–So–Nice Nurse, must help her new sweetheart clear Hannah's name–and her own–and restore her sterling reputation. But does Nancy deserve her devotion? Troubling discoveries force Cherry to do some sleuthing of her own. Is Nancy really the sweet, upstanding girl she seems to be? Like her beloved camp classics The Case of the Not–So–Nice Nurse and A Ghost in the Closet, Mabel Maney's The Case of the Good–For–Nothing Girlfriend brilliantly parodies 1950s boys' and girls' adventure series.
From the author of The Case of the Not–So–Nice Nurse and A Ghost in the Closet.
