Cherry Ames, Staff Nurse Reviews
,Frankly, this was one of the dullest in the series. I enjoyed Cherry Ames Boarding School Nurse, Cherry Ames Veterans' Nurse, Cherry Ames, Rural Nurse, Cherry Ames, Country Doctor's Nurse and Cherry Ames Boarding School Nurse best. Oh, and Cherry Ames, Dude Ranch Nurse.
This is another rather disappointing story in the series as once again the mystery theme dominates the book and it's quite obvious who the main villain is almost from the beginning. There is a section about teenage volunteers working at the hospital which is good but the rest involves a woman with severe arthritis being fleeced by a crooked investor.The Cherry Ames-oriented nature of the earlier volumes seems to become almost a Nancy Drew-type of story in the later volumes with many of the mysteries being rather obvious as to the nature of the villain.
I love these mid-20th century books, with the perky, perfect heroine and all the old retro attitudes. Helps to make you appreciate life now so much better! Will probably be reading a few more of these "nurse propaganda" books just for the sheer enjoyment of looking at how nursing has changed. I suspect they will all be super-heavy on "Cherry solves another mystery and saves the world!" twist, but they are a fun Saturday morning diversion.
I definitely don't remember this one from when I was growing up. As soon as her patient started talking about this amazing investment, all I could think was, "It's a Ponzi scheme!"
Cherry becomes an expert in securities fraud. Dull.
Another book I read a long time ago...
Enjoyed these books as a kid and am enjoying them again as an adult. Like the adventures that Cherry has. Looking forward to rest of the series.
