I enjoy this series for the lightness in which difficult subjects are broached - not ignored, but not
handled in an overly angst-ridden way. Although there is a serious problem faced by the characters, there is still a happy ending coming. I also like that medical personnel are seen as normal people with normal problems and that both men in this book had to overcome prejudices and first impressions to get to know the real character of the other. This book can easily be read as a stand-alone, but I certainly recommend it for any fans of the series.
