Perfect Together by Carly Phillips

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?

Tired of being the easygoing daughter, always ignored in favor of her high-maintenance sister, and no longer interested in being her fiancé’s trophy wife, Nicole Farnsworth calls off her wedding. All she wants is to be herself. And where better to find her destiny than Serendipity? The place where she met the one man who made her heart beat faster, and gave her the courage to reinvent her life—even if he doesn’t know it.

Officer Sam Marsden calls Serendipity home and he loves it there—even though his childhood sweetheart was stolen by his best friend. After such heartbreak, Sam fears he can’t trust his instincts when it comes to love. Yet he’s so tempted by Nicole, a woman he met only briefly but who has starred in his dreams ever since. For Nicole and Sam, opening their hearts one more time could change their lives forever. But who’ll be the first to take that chance?




I want to move to Serendipity! The people there seem like a close knit family and I think I could put up with the interfering if I could only have a healthy dose of the caring. Nicole was such a sweet and kind-hearted woman. I'm sorry to say that I was expecting her to be yet another poor, little rich girl but she quickly won me over. I enjoyed this book much more than I was expecting too because of my own prejudgement and fear of clichés. Nicole was not what I was expecting and neither was her situation. Sam was also so much more than the typically wounded in love hero. He was a talented detective, a loving son and brother and a dotting friend, uncle and god-father. He was worthy of love and I felt extremely invested in the outcome of their relationship. I loved that this story had a wonderful mixture of suspense, action, heat and action. I loved that there were two love stories winding through this book and that we got to catch up with Sam's siblings. If you are looking for a solid romance this is a great choice.
