I was rolling my eyes the first couple of chapters because I thought this was going to be typical "good-twin-takes-place-of-irresponsible-dead-twin-and-no- one-not-even-lover-can-tell" story. Then Steffen kicked it in and this got good. Maybe the way a couple of secondary characters plotlines wrapped up was a bit serendipitous and predicatable, but everyone got happily-ever afters and that's what you read a romance for.
