The Hardly Boys in A Ghost in the Closet. A Nancy Clue and Cherry Aimless Mystery.

The Hardly Boys in A Ghost in the Closet. The Case of the. Not-So-Nice Nurse. I WAS BORN IN APPLETON, WISCONSIN, a small town famous for being the birthplace of Harry Houdini, and as producers of high quality cheese. Escape and cheese: two things, I believe, that made this series work. When The Case of The Not-So-Nice Nurse came out, in 1993, a friend said: "Mabel, at your sanity hearing, this book will be used against yo. I agree, and, if the letters I get are any indication, so do my readers

Mabel Maney has constructed a fabulous world full of sharp characters - each with a very keen fashion sense - and thrown in many a surprising twist that kept me enthralled with the events of the mystery. Her style is very descriptive and conjures up the 1950s mindset.

Ghost in the Closet book. Maney NAILS the tone, the turns of phrase are pitch-perfect, and A Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys crossover in which everyone is gay. I knew it would be ridiculous, but I was caught off-guard by how awesome it actually was. I mean, ridiculous, but awesome. Having read and reread, as a kid, every single Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys book that your small-town public library stocked isn't necessarily a prerequisite to reading this series, but I feel like these books don't have much to offer you if you haven't.

If you were ever a fan of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, the book will capture your heart.

With their fearless crime-fighting, good manners, and manly fashion sense, the Hardly boys are the pride of Feyport, Illinois. If you were ever a fan of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, the book will capture your heart. The gay humor will keep a smile on your face all the while. Mable Maney captures the breathlessness and aw-shucks rhythm of 1940s teen detective novels - with a skewed slant that some of us wished could have been written in our own teen literature.

If you enjoy reading, and aren't hindered by lesbian relationships...and if you enjoy good wit, you will love Nancy Clue books.
Rude
...if you also have an appreciation for campiness. Mabel Maney is a comic genius. I adore the gender-bending, the costumes, the plaster casts, the decorators, and the innuendoes... and the mystery was fun as well.
Clever
A not so tongue in cheek satire on the old Drew; If you are looking for a little light weight fun, this is good read.
Authis
Handsome, young detectives Frank and Joe Hardly travel home to Lake Merrimen, Illinois to find that their parents, world-reknowned detective Fennel Hardly and his loving wife, Mrs. Hardly, have been kidnapped and rumors are spreading about Mr. Hardly's being a Russian spy.
Meanwhile, Nancy Clue, girl detective and snappy dresser, ventures with her friends to the Lake Merrimen Auditorium to view the annual dog show. But something's amiss as she and her friends follow a scream only to discover that all the toy poodles have been dognapped!
Could the two incidents have anything in common? What is the terrible secret that Fennel Hardly keeps locked in his closet? Will Nancy ever win back her true love -- Cherry Aimless, Registered Nurse -- from the handsome, streetwise San Francisco girl detective Jackie Johnson?
Join Nancy and her friends as they dive into this hilarious, gay/lesbian spoof of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew mysteries. Mabel Maney has constructed a fabulous world full of sharp characters -- each with a very keen fashion sense -- and thrown in many a surprising twist that kept me enthralled with the events of the mystery. Her style is very descriptive and conjures up the 1950s mindset. I could not help but smile as I was reading. A great read for everyone!

Having just finished reading this I can honestly say I don't know if I've ever laughed this much reading a book. When Nancy and Frank are in the cave with her belted pads on their heads, I roared with laughter, and this was moments after I'd gotten in a conflict with someone at my job and I had a migraine at the time. Just the image of Cherry about to get electroshock treatment while still wearing her nursing cap- I'm chuckling just thinking of the image! And what must've happened to the party after they had the "vitamins" in the punch!! Take it from another Friend of the Insane, this book is a classic! Golly, I couldn't put it down and was wont to display ungentlemanly fits of unrestrained laughter!

I hate to disagree with my fellow reviewers but the book is a collection of snickering, wink-wink we're so clever, terrible prose.
I've no objection to gay humor but this is just witless, not funny and panders to its audience.
Fato
Even though you have to endure Bret Easton Ellis reminiscent descriptions of clothing and scenery, this book is a pure delight for anyone who has ever read Nancy Drew mysteries or just loves a great parody with charming lesbian references. Mabel Maney gives us something we can laugh our heads off about and you'll find it relaxing to see that almost every woman in this world is a lesbian. Lots of fun, definitely check into it!
what a wonderful series, best read in order....read the 2 books before someone tells you any of the many surprises
