When Miranda Woodruff's fiance left her three years ago, he left gaps both in her heart and in the backstory of her television show, From the Ground Up. Miranda's on-screen personality has a husband who taught her everything she knows about home building. So when rumors and questions arise about her husband, Miranda agrees to pretend to be married. Finding a pretend husband turns out to be easier than expected. However, when attractive reporter Matthew Knox begins poking around, Miranda finds her on-screen story and her real life both wearing thin. Will Miranda sacrifice everything to save her show? Or will she find that truth really will set her free? Read more in Made to Last by Melissa Tagg.
I enjoyed Made
to Last, Melissa Tagg's
debut novel. This book had a lot of hype and it took a little longer
than I would have liked for the story to “hook” me. However, once
I really got into it, the story offered refreshing originality and
Tagg's writing style was lovely. Though it's classified as a
romantic comedy, Made to Last,
has plenty of depth and development. I cheered for the characters as
they faced life's challenges and lessons.
Just a heads up to anyone
who, like me, is keen on plenty of resolution. The ending was sweet,
but there were several unresolved situations and issues. It appears
that there will be another book that continues Blake's story.
However, from the synopsis I read, it doesn't appear that Miranda and
Matthew are a focus of the story. This leads me to assume that those
issues will mostly likely not be addressed.
to Last is a sweet and
entertaining story. However, I recommend renting before purchasing if
you have an issue with stories that lack resolution.
