Ahhh! Another sweet romantic story!

Lee and Amanda can't catch a break when Billy assigns a "cushy" assignment that has terrorist threats. Sure hope Francine keeps their secret. Aw shucks, we missed out on the ball. Actually, if Lady Emily Farnsworth won't be there ... no worries! Another fine story and well-written. Wish the longer stories were in chapters. Then you'd get more reviews!

How cute! You do a very nice job with the characters, particularly Francine. I loved her "I swear you're beginning to sound like her now. What's `just it'?" line.

I enjoyed this thoroughly, Mindy. You did a great job with characterization, and although it's AU, it's very plausible! You set it up very well. I have to say that one of my favorite parts (out of many) was this:

"Lee," Amanda laid her hand on his arm, "I appreciate your concern, I really do, but it's not that big a deal. I'm a grown up professional woman; I can handle this," she smiled wryly, "If I stood up to Martha Sizemore in the PTA for three straight years, I can certainly deal with Effram Beaman!"

"Martha Sizemore, huh?" Lee grinned, "Is she someone we should think about recruiting?"

ROTFL! That was terrific! I'll look forward to reading your next story.

I really enjoyed this story. You can tell in the series that Lee and Francine are good friends, and it seems natural that after being prodded by her enough, they would come out with the truth. Thanks for writing!

AU? Yep. Believable? Absolutely! Nice job with an interesting look at the relationship between Francine and Lee. I'm always impressed by your characterization and look forward to seeing more from you. One part struck me as exceptionally nice and is easily my favorite couple of lines in the whole story: "Just now she shifted in her chair, bringing her knee to rest against his. He smiled slightly to himself, realizing that she was telegraphing her forgiveness." What a great example of "show, don't tell". Keep up the good work!

Great story. I think that you should do a follow up to this story. Great job. Keep writing, and I'll keep reading.

Could it have happened this way? You bring it awful darn close back into line with the series. I'm almost convinced. But . . . I like to believe that Dotty started figuring things out after Amanda's impassioned confession in Playing Possum. :-) This is less of a stretch than that.

Your characterization was solid, as usual. While reading, I did feel that the dinner conversation seemed a bit off, but upon later reflection I realized that we all tend to wax overly psychological about ourselves and our friends from time to time.

I'd be curious to see the larger work from which this was taken.

I really enjoyed this story. It was in character and very enjoyable. I love how you portrayed Francine.

I really enjoyed this story, and it's very much in character and quite believable (even if the original scripts didn't flesh out L&A's story in quite the same way). Thanks for writing! Keep it up! mh2:)

It might not mesh with the scripts, but it is nicely done. Good job with Francine.
