    To Amanda's chagrin, the winner turns out to be quite a loser as Taxi driver Mike Cavaco enters the TV studio with the triumphant tickets. All Mike wants to do is return what he found left behind in his cab and escape into his world of self pity that has engulfed him ever since he lost his regular job. However, before he can react he is drawn into accepting the victory. Amanda may think she can make Mike over, but he wants to say no only it keeps coming out yes because he finds himself attracted to his life make over counselor.

    MAKING OVER MIKE is an amusing contemporary romantic romp that never takes itself seriously. The story line is fun and humorous in a madcap way, as neither of the lead characters wants what is happening, but between the TV station and love, they have no choice. Anyone who enjoys reading a funny frolicking romp will want to peruse Lisa Plumley's cheerful tale.
