Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

Miracle at the Higher Grounds CafeMiracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book went exactly as I expected it to ... with maybe a few little touches of cuteness, but I saw where this story was going to go from the get go.
Nothing wrong with that. Made for a fun, light, easy read.
I did't know that Max Lucado had written a novel before & of course, it has his touch of preaching the gospel in it, but it was definitely a cute little angel book that reminds you of the battle of good & evil around us all the time. & it involves a coffee shop. I love me a cute little coffee shop. & also includes a blog. Called "The God Blog"... I also love me a cute little blog. So yeah, it was a nice fast read.
Not amazing, not horrible - just a good easy light read. Perfect for a summer day.

Book Synopsis:

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would He answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Cafe, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea s door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Cafe, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They ve come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the cafe has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life s biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask God a question of her own. Heaven answers in a most unexpected way."
