1. I like the length of the stories - they range from 55 to 110 pages.
2. I like the fact that each book relates to a specific profession.
3. I like that the women and men in these stories are equals.
But there's one big difference in this book. And that is story #3. I enjoyed the 3 stories of Playing Doctor and the 1st 2 stories of Lawyer Up equally well. But the 3rd story of Lawyer Up is the 1st one that features people a little bit older. Patricia is 44 and a lawyer. And Emmit is 54 and a judge. I guess the fact that they are closer in age to me (although still considerably younger!) allowed me to connect a little bit easier. But besides the age connection, or perhaps because of the age connection, I found myself laughing and smiling a bunch. Coincidence? Beats me.
But, most importantly, I like the stories, and I like the writing. And even though I'm certainly not philosophically and intellectually opposed to a little physical romance(!), the stories do stand on their own merits. Bottom line? I recommend both books. Playing Doctor is already available, and Lawyer Up will be purchase-able August 4. Have fun, people.
