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.

My Take: 

I have yet to read a Max Lucado book that didn't draw me in and keep me interested until the very end.  Miracle at the Higher Grounds is a light look at the spiritual warfare that we go through in everyday life.  

Chelsea Chambers is separated from her NFL superstar husband and trying to make it on her own.  She reopens The Higher Grounds Cafe, and with a little help from her guardian angel, Manny, she seems to be doing well... until the spiritual warfare kicks into high gear.  While the God Blog brings in tons of new customers who want to ask God a question and get it answered, it also draws the attention of the demons that would see her fail.  As Manny, with the help of a bunches of other angels, fight the battle to save Chelsea's marriage.... she learns a few lessons from her ailing father, her own past and her longtime neighbor and friend, Bo.  

When Chelsea finally chooses to ask God the questions that have been nagging her, can she get the answers she wants? Or maybe the answers she needs?

Definitely recommended-- enjoyable, eye-opening read!
