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.

This was OK
I haven't listened to or read Max Lucado before. I found the book somewhat less spiritual than I was expecting, but it is a nice story. Very clean, gives you a feel good ending.It certainly is a safe novel for those trying to avoid bad language and graphic sex scenes. There was enough humor to keep you going and it made me really want to open a quaint coffee and baked goods shop.
I really liked the ending as far as the imagery goes. Spoiler alert!
What I liked most was when the main character was shown the worst parts of her life and the fact the God's Presence was with her though she wasn't
aware of it; and then the quote stating something like as believers "Abandonment is a myth and loneliness is a choice." Those are my takeaways from the book.
I typically like a little more depth in my books, but this was OK.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Ben Holland?
Probably not, unless i was specifically told of a great one but this story didnt particularly sell me on the book.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
It was expected, no wow factor!
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The performance was good. The voice was soothing and the pace was fitting.
Do you think Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
No, the story doesn't really have much to expand on thus a follow up book would be strange and un-needed.
Any additional comments?
