This is a really creative idea for a story. I like that you involved Russ, and am enjoying how you've portrayed him so far - I've never liked the character, although I suppose that's the point ;( - and you're doing a good job of showing his smarmy side! I also like how you're explaining Jo's feelings of hopelessness/helplessness in the face of everything that's going on. Your line towards the end is so sad ". . . after so many years, again, she let him mark her as his."
In the beginning, I liked the sudden contrast in Jo's emotions from right before to right after Mac told her he was going to buy a ring. Great descriptive writing - from her initial wide happy smile to the sudden ache in her jaw from having to force that same smile. Her washed out voice, the blood rushing in her ears, difficulty breathing and then her intense need to just get out of there. I love that scene!
I'd forgotten she'd helped set up Mac's social networking site, so of course she's blaming herself for his relationship with Christine! How ironic.
I was happy that you showed Jo's conviction to her work while searching the apartment and finally finding an address. Even with her personal life suffering, she's still able to keep her head and focus on her job. And I could see her reacting as she did after telling the parents their daughter was dead. The scene on the bench in the hallway with Mac was very sweet.
Loved the dinner scene - how Russ managed to not at all subtly maneuver Ellie to a chair so Jo was forced to sit next to him, his hands on her under the table the whole time, staring at her. I can just see Russ completely ignoring Tyler and Ellie, focused solely on Jo. Although he did remember the nice red, Californian wine. ;) Mmm. . . .
I'm just not convinced by Mac's cluelessness in all this - he should know better than to get engaged to someone he admits he doesn't really know that well, who's company he doesn't truly enjoy all the time, for whom he can't even pick a ring! He'd better come to his senses pretty soon!
Can't wait for the next chapter!

Wow, this is really amazing and I loved the way Jo reacted towards the girls death and parents and the way Jo tried to seem enthusiastic about Mac buying Christine a ring. It was amazing and I can't wait for an update! I hope Mac soon realises that he should be with Jo and not Christine.

You better apologize to me, missy! You just ripped out my heart and I don't know what the heck you did with it but I'm sitting here with my mouth hanging wide opened. Thanks for mentioning me in the opening, it means alot! I love where you're going with this story and I can't wait to read more! After a boring day, a long chapter made me SO HAPPY! Oh, I didn't forget about your PM, I'll get back to that ASAP as soon as my Internet is back up... I'm reviewing from my phone at the moment. Anyways, I love this! Great work as always!
