Made to Last by Melissa Tagg

Book Description:  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?

My Thoughts:  Having read quite a few mystery and suspense reads lately I decided to swing away from these "heavier" books to read this contemporary romance Made to Last by Melissa Tagg.     
Melissa is a new author and makes quite a debut with Made to Last.
Miranda "Randi"  Woodruff is a hands on type of gal.  She has her own homebuilding TV show, From the Ground Up.  It all seems to be going so well and Randi seems to have it all . . . until she needs (more) ratings and a husband!  
One small problem Randi isn't dating and so she pretends to be married.  
Then Matthew agrees with his editor to write a serial blog about Randi and her life.  Well, in all his "digging" about Randi's closely guarded life he comes to some "secrets."
As the handsome reporter,Matthew, shadows Randi's every move and begins the series on her show and life, Randi begins to see a a man who is made to last.
A fun and light hearted christian romance that is one great read!
