Serendipity  - Carly Phillips This review also posted at A Bookish Compulsion

I thought that Serendipity was a cute book with real feeling characters, even if most of them were plagued with soap-opera pasts and many of the plot catalysts were either absurd or at the very least long-shots. I enjoyed reading this book even while feeling displaced by the chosen “reality.” Like meeting someone so far out of your own world they feel a bit unreal, this book was far afield from my normal reading and as such felt a bit foreign; but even still I felt like I was experiencing a slice of that other world, which is all that can be asked of a book. This volume spends the last chapter setting up the next book in the series, which sounded interesting and would certainly help to tie up many of the ends left in the town in which this series is based around.

I give Serendipity four stars for an enjoyable reading experience.
