ONE ON THE HOUSE by Mary Lasswell


Email this review


That indomitable, inexhaustible trio,- Mrs. Feeley, Mrs. Rasmussen and Miss Tinkham, living fully- if not always graciously- in a new sequence of gay, beery, benevolent adventures. In New York, for a visit, they take to horse racing, blow all their winnings on a television set for a young couple, lose what's left and their fare back to San Diego. Stranded in Newark, New Jersey, they happen on a deserted saloon whose barkeep is in the hospital, put the tavern back on its feet as they hand out free eats with the beer; tell off a local ward heeler; and after throwing a helluva party, leave its owner in solvent shape and head for home. As cheerful, good natured, free flowing as its predecassors, this will make for their market.
