Book Review: Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

Book Review: Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe from Starts At Eight

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.

What I Thought

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe is a short, fun read. From the old town cafe setting, to the diverse and interesting characters, this book oozes small town charm appeal!

I totally fell in love with the twist on the cafe’s Internet connection. It was an insightful, and fun plot twist that I didn’t see coming.

You find yourself wanting to roll up your sleeves and serve coffee right along with Chelsea’s unique barista, Manny. He is steady and true, and an angel sent to help Chelsea along!

If you could ask God anything, what would you ask? This was part of the overriding theme throughout and offered a unique way to see inside some of the characters in the story.

While I found some of the end game of the plot to be predictable, it was far outweighed by the whole concept behind the curious Internet connection at the cafe!
