Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe: A Review
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.
Miracle At The Higher Grounds Café was a cute little read. The book doesn’t even reach two hundred pages. It was a fast and quick read. Starting out with our main character Chelsea who is trying to live life on her own with her two kids. I really liked all of the other characters introduced especially Chelsea’s guardian angel Samuel also known as Manny.
The story was a cute little story, with Chelsea’s lacking faith in god. Something is placed in the café to help people have that faith. At first I thought it was a little cheesy but over the course of the book I thought it was cool way send a message.
Unfortunately there were some parts I didn’t enjoy. One was Chelsea’s’ almost ex husband was always around and I mean always. I know she is trying to forget the past but a lot of this book is her just talking about. Remembering it, and then remembering it some more. And I feel they tried to add a villain without really taking it anywhere. Other than that I really liked it. There were ups and downs and some good laughs.
I received this book for free for my honest review from booklook bloggers. (booklookbloggers.com)
