Miranda Woodruff is living the dream life, or so it appears. She’s the star and host of the homebuilding TV show “From the Ground Up” and thousands of adoring fans are taken with her mystery husband — the one who taught her everything she knows about building. So when the network starts talking about cutting her show, those behind it come up with a plan. It’s time to finally let the world meet the husband who has, until now, remained hidden from the public eye. There is one problem, Miranda isn’t actually married. Her fiancé walked out on her three years ago and she’s been incapable of admitting the truth.

To maintain that secret from the world, Miranda is forced to find a pretend husband to stick with her, at least for the time being, until they can come up with an escape plan. However, life is never simple. With the new buzz surrounding her show, a handsome reporter is sent to tail Miranda, and whenever Matthew Knox is around, her secret and her heart are in jeopardy.

Melissa Tagg brings to the pages a sweet, faith-centered story of love, betrayal, and second chances. Made to Last shows life, with all its messiness and challenges, in a fun and quirky way. Readers will both groan and laugh as they watch the characters sludge through the muck of their choices, but in the end they’ll cheer as they see that, with God, restoration and forgiveness is just a prayer away.

While in many ways Miranda is the exact opposite of me, I could relate with the longing and desires that propelled her to make some of the decisions she made. Whether we’re a tomboy or a girly girl, whether we thrive in the public eye or behind the scenes, I believe most females can relate to Miranda’s need to feel loved and fulfilled. It’s that basic, innate yearning that runs through all of us that makes this story speak to its readers.

Made to Last is the perfect getaway for romance fans looking to enjoy a relaxing evening surrounded by entertaining characters and a tangled web of craziness.
