Micacle At The Higher Grounds Cafe' - Max Lucado

4 Stars

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.

Max Lucado is one of my favorite non-fiction writers. I own ten of his books. But this is the first work of fiction of his I have read.
This book had a lot of things going for it! Many of my boxes crossed off.
A sweet love story - check
An unusual twist - check
Takes place in a coffee shop - check!
Great likeable characters - check
Quirkiness - check
Satisfying ending - check

This is a very sweet, but powerful read. And the love story - not what you expect. I found myself loving the unusualness of this plot. It definitely kept me wanting more.

I do think I prefer him as a non-fiction (devotional) writer, but this book was very likeable as well! And if he decides to write more fiction I am sure I will read them.

Thank you Litfuse for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Thanks for this review! I'm familiar with Max Lucado's name and am intrigued by the fact that he wrote a fiction book. I've requested it from NetGalley. :D
