Cara is a great heroine. She's tough but still has a vulnerable side. She isn't afraid to speak her mind or stand up for herself, but also realizes sometimes it's better to let things go. As the novel progressed I came to respect her independence and sharp wit.

I’ve been a long time fan of Carly Phillips, and with her newest series set in small town New York, she has catapulted herself into one of my all-time favorite contemporary romance authors.
Mike never wanted to stay in Serendipity forever, but when his adoptive father gets sick, Mike returns home temporarily to take over the position of Police Chief. The last thing he expected was to fall back into insane lust with one of his ...more
Perfect Fit is the first book in the new Serendipity’s Finest series by Carly Phillips but it’s also part of the larger Serendipity series. I usually don’t like to pick up a book that’s in the middle of any kind of series. I guess that’s the OCD in me coming out. But this didn’t feel like I was picking up a story already in progress.
We meet Mike Marsden. Usually he’s an undercover cop for the NYPD. His dad, Simon, who is the Serendipity Chief of Police, has sta ...more
My absolute favorite Carly Phillips has done it again in the first of the Serendipity’s Finest Perfect Fit. It never fails with that we are given characters you can connect with and their lives you become a part of and this book was no different. I have to say that this could be a standalone because it is written that well but to get a broader view of Serendipity I would recommend starting from the beginning. Okay, maybe it’s because I ...more
What can I say? I loved, loved l.o.v.e.d, LOVED this book (yes I sound a bit fangirl-ish). Lets start with the easy things and talk about the story. This book was by far the best this series has to offer as far as combining a great, slightly romantic suspense, contemporary romance. Mike is back in town to fill in as temporary Chief of Police due to his father’s cancer battle. After his brother Sam is in a car accident, he has to take over an investigatio ...more

I have only a couple of things to say about this book.
1. It was my top read of 2012
2. Mike Mardsen wasn't only my top Carly hero, he was my top hero of 2012
3. Mike and Cara's love story was absolutely perfect for them.

We’re back in Serendipity, this time getting to know the Marsden family and the three Marsden siblings Mike, and his half-siblings Sam and Erin. Mike was raised by Sam and Erin’s father, but was never treated as anything but a son by their dad. He’s never met his biological father, a man who bolted when Mike’s mom was pregnant with him. His mom married her close friend, Simon, and he raised Mike as his own. Mike’s absent father, Rex, is now ...more

I've seen Carly say over the last several weeks that this is one of her favorite novels she's written and that Mike is one of her favorite heroes. I can certainly see why. From the beginning you could see how complex a character he was, but in the end, he is the guy that any girl would be lucky to be with and you could see him ...more
This second series in Serendipity has similarities with the previous one. Michael Marsden reminds me of the first hero in the first series, another bad boy, who's back.
He is in love with Cara and they shared a night of passion and then he went back to NY. But when his stepfather becomes ill with cancer he gets back and replace his stepfather as police chief. ANd incidentally he becomes chief of Cara, too!!!
P.S. I love the cover, sup ...more

Zuerst dies ist der erste Teil einer neue Reihe, die sich im deutschen "Marsden" nennt. Es geht hier um die Familie Marsden, wo die Kinder ihre Liebe finden. Hier geht es um Mike, er ist der älteste Sohn der Familie, der aber einen anderen Vater hat, als die ...more
Why I Read this Book: I’ve been wanting to try a Carly Phillips novel so I decided to start with Perfect Fit. It wasn’t perfect but it was an enjoyable read.
What I Liked: The hero and heroine are likeable characters. Mike is a bit of a drifter; he never stays in one place too long and he doesn’t like to be tied down. But he’s close to his family and comes back to town to fill in for his father as the chief of police when his father becomes ill. Cara is an office ...more
