Made to Last   -              By: Melissa Tagg

If any of you know me, you know that I have a love for Building with Habitat for Humanity, so finding a story where the lead character is a girl that loves to build things and has her own tool belt (In my mind hers is pink just like mine). Miranda Woodruff is your average tomboy, prefers flannel shirts over silk dresses, a tool belt over a manicure set and work boots instead of heels, along with that she has her own home building show and the public wants to know the story behind Miranda ‘Randi” Woodruff. However, Miranda has some secrets, some that could ruin her public image, a marriage that doesn’t exist, a past with pain she hopes to avoid. With the network considering cancelling her show her managers decide to hire a fake husband to boost publicity.

Matthew Knox is always on the hunt for the latest scoop, but with a mistake made five years ago he is still fighting to make a comeback in the national news, with the chance to do a serial blog and follow Randi Woodruff around that could lead to a cover story and the comeback he needs Matthew takes the job and moves to a cabin on Randi’s property. Him and Randi hit it off well, but he knows she isn’t telling him something, and that there is a big secret she is hiding. As Matthew unearths more and more of Randi’s life he finds his heart getting in the way, will he be able to spill her secrets?

Made to Last is the perfect autumn read to curl up with, a cast of characters that will have you laughing and crying throughout their story.  Melissa Tagg has woven a beautiful story about forgiving the past and fighting the labels that you have attached to yourself, to get past what the world has tagged you as and to live in the promise of God and what He has created you to be. Melissa Tagg has created a beautiful debut novel and I cannot wait to see what else is yet to come.


I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
