Miranda may look put together on the outside, but like her half-built house, she needs work.
The first half of the book annoyed me. The whole set-up felt fake and contrived. I had little sympathy for a woman who had a successful career in TV; looks great in jeans and a flannel shirt; and does not need a man around to help her fix a leaky faucet. She was just too perfect.
Then about halfway through the book, I realized that Miranda is not perfect and needs help. She starts to realize it, too. This is when the story went from dull and boring to interesting and entertaining. I liked the second half of the book much more than the first half.
If I did not have to write this review, I might have just put the book down before finishing it. I will admit that the writing is good and the story does flow easily. However, it just took too long to set up the story.
Bethany House provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
