| transmissionends64 chapter 49 . 3/8
Another corker of a chapter. I really loved the 'tennis scores'. The humour is brilliant in this despite the seriousness of the over-all story. Good to see that Catherine is on her way home. Hopefully she'll be safe. No wonder Harry's mind is constantly in overdrive, trying to think of devious and not-so devious ways of protecting the people he loves. Really looking forward to the chapter that deals with the 'do'. Would love to see Harry have a dance with Jane, even if it's just for old times sake. Looking forward to the big 5 0 chapter!
| Genevastar chapter 49 . 3/8
I do love seeing Malcolm in action - especially together with Tom. For an ageing 'stuffed shirt' who plays everything strictly by the rules, his description of Robin's 'unfortunate stomach upset' positively reeks with malicious glee. They are so going to enjoy Robin's comeuppance - possibly almost as much as I am!
And what a glorious ending. For a moment there I thought we were veering off into fluff territory and then we got that glorious final line, at which I literally burst out laughing. So clever, to be able to make a reader's emotions swing like that. I can't wait to get to the reception!

I simply love your story. Thanks for the update and as usual I'm very eager to read more :)
| Marcy Matters chapter 49 . 3/6
Really enjoying the lovely denouement to this story. Thank you for updating! As always, looking forward to the next chapter.
| Sparky75 chapter 49 . 3/5
Excellent update (as always), I'm really enjoying the snarky yet growing friendship between Jane and Harry and the fact that 90% of the time they get on well but there's still that tension of being divorced for so long in he other 10%. Inspired thinking on Tom and Malcolm's behalf (and yours of course) on a way to keep Robin from attending the reception and also finding a way to bring him down without humiliating Jane in the process! I'll be eagerly waiting the next update, whenever that is! We're closing in on the 2 year anniversary now and I'm enjoying this as much now as I did at the beginning!
| NatesDate chapter 49 . 3/4
I know Harry thinks that no one at this reception will know that he and Jane used to be married but for some reason I have this idea that that secret will be blown fairly quick. Either way, I like that Harry bought her the earrings. It was a nice and genuine gesture on his part. Looking forward to the party and hoping there are a few fireworks!
| VelocityGirl1980 chapter 49 . 3/4
Great chapter! I loved Harry's one-liner at the end. But it's so nice to see Harry and Jane finally achieving this respect for one another. Loved how Jane doesn't seem quite know how to react with Harry being on the level, either. The way you're drawing all the lingering loose ends together is also well done (loved Harry and Tom's methods of keeping Robin away from the function!). Great stuff, all around. Don't worry about the delay for the next chapter, either: it's always worth the wait for this story!
| Antonia Caenis chapter 49 . 3/4
Loved Harry's reflections on how Robin might end up after Tom's ministrations! This chapter has done a great job of keeping track of the 'work' side of the story while continuing to advance, and give nice insights, into the 'private' people, from Erin's sulk at being pulled away from her shopping trip to Jane's wonderfully elucidated confusion at Harry's motives right at the end. I'll be looking forward to seeing what havoc Jane can wreak in that dress in the next chapter!
| Guest chapter 49 . 3/4
Brilliant chapter, loving Harry and Jane together.
| LadyDunla chapter 49 . 3/4
You know, it's really nice that Harry and Jane do get along somewhat, enough to even joke from time to time, and to attend a reception together without being in immediate danger of having a fight. And Harry's gifting jewellery? Now it's for certain that things are going in the right direction. Amusing as the arguments were from time to time, I suppose this is certainly better for them (and Graham and Catherine). I wonder if they'll ever have a conversation about Ruth.
Well done. Thanks for sharing!
| Sigma Creations chapter 49 . 3/4
Great update and I'm loving the speedy wrapping up of all the different threads in this plot (how on earth do you keep track of them all?) Hoping Jane finds out about Ruth soon and remains on civil terms with Harry. Really looking forward to more.
| KittyJum chapter 49 . 3/4
Such a brilliant chapter again and what a nice quip of Harry to end it with!
Apologies again for only reviewing occasionally, each of the previous chapters would have deserved a glorious review. I loved the dramatic suspense whether Harry, Catherine and Dimitri would make it out of the building alive, reading of the fast-paced intelligence gathering and of Harry being dragged through the Home Secretary’s office before being able to see Catherine made me feel about as exhausted as Harry must have felt and I also loved meeting Graham again and him very slowly acknowledging that his father might be a human being after all!
I still like Jane a little bit more after each chapter and think you are portraying Jane and Harry’s tentative steps towards a more amiable relationship with each other with all the sudden fallbacks really formidably. Now of course I’m absolutely curious how the ‘divorce project’ is developing and in what way this is again (or still) affecting Harry and Jane, but before that there’ll be the reception and I’m so thrilled already to read about it!
Very much looking forward to the next chapter, I hope it won’t take too long, though if you’d post it in a while in April we could celebrate a double jubilee – 50th chapter and 2-year anniversary of this fab story!
Thanks for taking the time of writing, it’s really making my day each time I see you’ve posted a new chapter!
| transmissionends64 chapter 48 . 2/23
Fantastic! I so love the scenes between Harry and Jane. I'm sure she will go to the Reception with Harry and they'll have a wonderful time together (please!). Still thoroughly enjoying this story with all its intricacies and humour. Roll on chapter 49:)
| rosetintedblindspot chapter 48 . 2/22
I really liked the discussion between Harry and Catherine and how he talked about the past. And the scene in the restaurant was lovely and beautifully written. Thank you for sharing another perfect chapter.
| Sparky75 chapter 48 . 2/21
So Robin is even more of an odious turd than we previously gave him credit for! I'm looking forward to his comeuppance even more now! Another excellent chapter, you can't copy and paste lines anymore but there were some fantastic ones in this. Really looking forward to more and curious as to (when, how,if) Jane finds out about Ruth.
