Dude Ranch Nurse

This is the first Cherry Ames book that I have read that I actually didn't like. The mystery takes first place over the medical care and the villain is obvious from almost the very beginning of the book. Most of the people in the book are not likable at all. Granted, the last chapter gives them excuses for being the way they are but wading through the rest of the chapters with these ultra-nasty people is not an easy task.

The mystery itself is cliched and Cherry ends up having a gun pointed at her with a guy planning to kill her, neither of which things really fit into the Cherry Ames 'mythos' that has been established in the other books.

Overall quite disappointing.
