{{Book Review}} Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

{{About the Book}}

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 Café, 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 Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They've come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café 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, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

*My Review*
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this Max Lacado fiction. It took me several chapters to actually get into the book, it was very slow for me. Don't get me wrong....It was entertaining, but I love Max Lacado & his non-fiction books way more than his fiction. It was a sweet story though & an okay read. Just because I didn't absolutely LOVE the book, doesn't mean you won't enjoy it. 

{{Advance Praise}}
"Have you ever wished that you could sit down with God over a cup of coffee and ask any question that's on your heart? Well, patrons of the Higher Grounds Café have found just such a place, and lives are being changed. In this fantastic novel from America's pastor, Max Lucado, we're reminded that no matter how alone we might feel at times, heaven is all around and God is near."
---Sheila Walsh, author of Loved Back to Life
