About the book:

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)
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:
I enjoyed reading this sweet little story.  It is a very fast read that is well written, which makes it flow really well.  Chelsea opens her grandmother and mother's old coffee shop, she struggles at first, but when some mysterious people bring a special router for internet service to the shop, the shop's success is turned around.  This story is made up of a wonderful cast of characters whose faith will give even the biggest skeptic a little hope.  I have been going through a rough patch in my faith lately, and while, honestly, this book didn't fix it, it did help a little bit.  If you are looking for an enlightening, faith-filled story, that will give you hope, then this is the story for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
