I struggled with it. It struck me as a despicable thing to do, disrespectful to both his brother's memory and Jessie's right to grieve for Adam as he really was. Even though Mitch has good intentions, it's just a crazy thing to do. And I really expected that at some point he would be called to account for it by Jessie, no matter how much in love they are. But when she figures out his secret, Jessie's behaviour is just as strange in response.
The author clearly conveys the characters' love for each other, which is what kept me reading. Even with the too-perfect resolution of every problem at the end, I may check out Kimberley Reeves' other books. But it's still a weird scenario. Maybe you won't have a problem with it....
It wasn't long before you could see that the author was not going to go that route. I said to myself that if he decides to pretend to be his twin brother and establish a relationship with this girl, I am going to stop reading right now. He did. I did. Story was so wrong on so many levels.
So Mitch shows up at Jessie's place and after watching her for a few days and seeing how sad she is decides to give her one last visit from Adam. Then he can have someone else come and tell her Adam died. Great idea...I really have no idea how he thought it would work. Yes, they are identical twins, but Jessie knows Adam intimately. It is just...you just have to go with it at times. He does have Adam's journal where he talked about the ranch hands and such on Jessie's ranch so he knows who people are kind of and can pretend.
Jessie is so happy to have Adam back even if he is acting different. She loves the new Adam and at first is always waiting for him to revert back to his old self. He is more affectionate and keeps saying he is going to stay, but Jessie knows Adam gets fidgety after a few weeks. As the weeks go on and he doesn't change back she starts to get comfortable in their new routine and believe that he will stay around.
Then Jessie gets pregnant. She is super worried about how Adam will take it since he had a vasectomy before he met her since he didn't want kids. Of course Mitch didn't know this, but Jessie doesn't know what to do. And it is at this time that she figures out Adam is not Adam, Adam must be his brother Mitch! What happens once she figures this out? Well not much. She is worried for Mitch's mental health, like he might actually think he is his brother. She just loves him so much she cannot even imagine for a second losing him, and she is not angry with him at all for pretending to be Adam. Odd. Not how I would react. I was expecting more of a confrontation or something to happen and then Mitch having to work his way back into her good graces, but nope. It is fine. The story goes on for a while more, Jessie waiting for Mitch to come clean so they can move forward with their lives and Mitch trying to figure out how to tell Jessie in a way so that she won't hate him forever. It was just a bit of a let down, and I didn't really believe it. At the same time it was kind of nice not to have a bunch of drama, but still.
Oh and there is a bad guy land owner who wants to buy Jessie's farm and take over everything. He is not a nice guy and there are some issues with that. Mitch and him have a fight and then the bad guy is all I will get you for this! Mwahahah! Well he does try and ruin everything in the end, but when it doesn't work he is just like oh, okay. Cool. Bestest friends now? Again it was a wait what? He is just giving up and everyone is going to be friends now? Um...okay. It just didn't seem to fit the character up until that point. Even with all of this unexpected easy solutions to all of the problems I still enjoyed the book, more than I thought I would.
