In the picturesque town of Serendipity, New York, three siblings have grown up in the shadow of their proud and respected police chief father. But what do love, fate, and fortune have in store for the next generation of Serendipity's finest?

Always feeling like the odd man out in his family, Michael Marsden wanted to make it on his own. So he escaped Serendipity to become an undercover cop in Manhattan, where the Marsden name wasn't known. But Michael's independence is compromised when he returns home to replace his sick father as chief of police. Back in the shadow of his family, he's as lost and restless as ever, until he's challenged by someone he never anticipated.

Cara Hartley is the Serendipity cop with whom Mike had a one night stand three months earlier. Neither expected anything more but fate has other things in store. When Mike returns as Cara's boss, the sexual tension between them is impossible to ignore--and the unexpected emotional connection continues to grow. But Cara's a small town girl while Mike has a wanderer's blood in his veins.

Both are convinced a future together is impossible. Until Mike's real father's secrets come back to haunt him and he realizes there are some things worth staying and fighting for. Including Cara.

(Serendipity's Finest bk 1) Mike Marsden, police chief, & Cara Hartley, cop

1/11 - Perfect Fit was almost a perfect book. If only Mike's internal monologue hadn't been on a constant loop of "can't make a permanent connection with Cara because I can't stay in one place for long" because that's all he ever seemed to be thinking. Every time we heard what he was thinking it was some variation on that theme and it got a bit irritating. I felt like telling Phillips that she didn't need to beat the idea that he doesn't like to be tied down into our brains, a few mentions of it and his actions throughout the book would have been sufficient to make it stick. In general, I liked the town of Serendipity with it's constant rotation of happily/married-ever-afters. Almost every character mentioned is part of a couple, and most of those couples are reasonably recently married which makes me think that all these couples had their own book prior to Perfect Fit. I really want to read more about this town and all its newly married couples and look forward to reading previous and subsequent books in the series.
