Diana Douglas: Beauty Contest Nurse
Beauty Contest Nurse by Diana Douglas was published by Signet in August 1973. Nurse Maria MacKenzie gets a job at a luxurious resort hotel in Acapulco! She gets assigned to the contestants in the Beauty Contest and meets three very different men. Can she trust her heart in this tropical paradise?
Allan Kass illustrates a patchwork cover which shows all the important aspects of this book: our hero doctor, our heroine nurse, a contestant, and the scenery of Acapulco! I almost like the vignettes of the scenery better than the people on this cover! What's your favorite aspect of this cover art?
