Miranda Woodruff has it all. At least, that's how it looks when she's starring in her homebuilding television show, From the Ground Up. So when her network begins to talk about making cuts, she'll do anything to boost ratings and save her show--even if it means pretending to be married to a man who's definitely not the fiance who ran out on her three years ago.
 
When a handsome reporter starts shadowing Miranda's every move, all his digging into her personal life brings him a little too close to the truth--and to her. Can the girl whose entire identity is wrapped up in her on-screen persona finally find the nerve to set the record straight? And if she does, will the life she's built come crashing down just as she's found a love to last?

"Sweet, fun, and faith-filled, Melissa Tagg's Made To Last is a story made to delight lovers of romance and behind-the-scenes reality TV.  Pull up an armchair and enjoy!"--Lisa Wingate, National Bestselling Author of Blue Moon Bay, one of Booklist's Top 10 of 2012

"Made to Last is a fun romantic comedy that will have you turning the pages. Melissa Tagg is a fresh voice to watch."--Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of Save the Date and There You'll Find Me

Vogt, author of Wish You Were Here and Catch a Falling Star

"What happens when a harmless lie you didn't intend to tell takes on a life of its own?

A great story with life-impacting truth surrounded by romance to make you swoon."--Cara Putman, award-winning author of A Wedding Transpires on Mackinac Island

"Reading Made to Last, Melissa Tagg's debut novel, was like meeting new friends whom I wanted to continue hanging out with long after the book ended. Melissa's fresh voice and ability to craft a well-written story hooked me with the opening line and held my attention to the very end. Her flawed characters, LOL moments and spiritual truth provided a foundation for a stellar debut novel. I even had to dab my teary eyes a couple of times. Melissa Tagg is an author to watch and one whose books I want to fill my shelves."--Lisa Jordan, award-winning author of Lakeside Reunion and Lakeside Family

About the Author:

Melissa Tagg is a former reporter and total Iowa girl. In addition to her homeless ministry day job, she is also the marketing/events coordinator for My Book Therapy, a craft and coaching community for writers.  When she's not writing, she can be found hanging out with the coolest family ever, watching old movies and daydreaming about her next book. She's passionate about humor, grace and happy endings. Melissa blogs regularly and loves connecting with readers at melissatagg.com.

From Booklist:

Miranda “Randi” Woodruff, a talented carpenter and “America’s favorite tomboy,” is the star of a home-repair television show. Part of her weekly shtick is talking about her husband, who taught her everything she knows about building. When the show is in danger of being canceled, the producer decides that Randi has to produce her much talked about but never seen husband to rally fan support. Unfortunately, he ditched her just before their wedding day. Matthew Knox, a disgraced journalist, takes on the distasteful job of uncovering the real story about Randi and her elusive husband because he needs to raise money to help his beloved niece receive a cochlear implant. Meanwhile, Randi is named as a finalist for an award honoring a celebrity with a philanthropic bent, and Blaze, who looks more like a surfer than a carpenter, is hired to pose as her husband. Tagg’s tale is humorous and enjoyable with likable characters, a gentle romance, and a very natural and unobtrusive thread of Christianity. --Diana Tixier Herald
