Made to Last Book Review

There are some books that you relate to, fall in love with the characters and really connect with. They are emotional, gut wrenchers with murder, suspense and intrigue. There are others that are just a 3-ring-circus from start to finish. Made to Last is one of those 3-ring-circus books. Miranda Woodruff has been living a life of lies. She is one of the most famous home improvement celebrities but behind the smile and wood working genius, there is a web of lies that just keep getting her deeper and deeper into trouble. This book would be an instant hit on the big screen as a romantic comedy. Everybody loves Miranda, but few get close enough to discover the secrets.

Made to Last Book Review

This is not a ‘boy meets girl, they ride off into the sunset’ kind of book. When Miranda tells her first lie in season 1 of her home improvement show, she had no idea the string of events she would be setting in place. One lie leads to another, till suddenly she finds herself up to her eyeballs in a twisted, tangled mess.

This is not a love triangle story. This is a ‘square’. Miranda has a long lost fiance, a pretend husband and a desperate reporter who needs to have the biggest scoop of his career. Put all 4 of these characters together and you wind up with the potential for some unsettling, laughable situations.

My opinion of Made to Last?

I loved it! Is it believable? Realistic? Hard Hitting? Not at all! But it is entertaining, telling and pulls at all the right strings of your emotions. This is a refreshing book to read in a world full of uncertainty and instability. Miranda is eventually able to find her anchor and come the full circle of forgiveness and find true love. Melissa Tagg does a great job writing a winner. I look forward to reading more of her novels!
