The Case of the Good-for-nothing Girlfriend

(1994)
(The second book in the Nancy Clue and Cherry Aimless Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
The sequel to The Case of the Not-So-Nice Nurse is another hoot, a lampooning of girls' fiction of the past full of hapless, do-gooding detectives with "keen sleuthing abilities, up-to-the-minute fashion sense, and gracious finishing-school manners". Girlfriend finds our hapless heroine, Nancy Clue, racing home to River Depths, Illinois, to confess the murder of her father, prominent attorney Carson Clue; expose the terrible truth about him; and free Hannah Gruel, the selfless housekeeper who has shouldered the blame.

With Nancy is the love of her life, nurse Cherry Aimless, whose wardrobe may be smaller than Nancy's but whose most treasured outfit is her nurse's whites complete with "cunning cape and perky cap". With a honey like Cherry, who is always careful to keep an ample supply of freshly starched, white linen handkerchiefs in her seasonally appropriate handbag, we know Nancy can't miss. Nor, with butch ex-con Midge and her perfectly lipsticked girlfriend, Velma, along for the ride, does this hilarious, dyke-ish caper.
