Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe: A Review

If you could ask, and God would answer, one question, what would it be?  

After separating from her NFL player husband, Chelsea Chambers has come home with her 2 children to reopen her mother's coffee shop.  When her hard work, coffee and cupcakes fail to pay the bills, Chelsea finds herself in need of a miracle, which arrives on her doorstep in the form of an angel disguised as a competent, but clumsy and socially awkward employee.

Unknown to Chelsea, a battle for her soul is being waged supernaturally.  Chelsea's guardian angel has a plan to save her.  A bold plan.  A plan that's never been done before: the God blog.  Mysterious strangers show up to install free wifi in the coffee shop, but customers can only connect to one website: the God blog.  On the God blog, people can ask a question of God, one per customer.  Soon, business is booming at the coffee shop, and it seems like everyone will live happily ever after.  Until another disaster strikes.

The book started slow.  It was, to tell the truth, kind of hokey, but I kept reading, and I'm so glad I did.  After a few chapters, the story pulled me in and wouldn't let me go.  The storyline requires suspension of unbelief, but the characters are likable and real.  What really drew me in to the book was the concept of spiritual warfare constantly swirling around the characters, and the incredible lengths God's angels will go to protect God's people.

Bottom line: once you get over the hokey-ness, reading this uplifting story is like getting a hug from God.

I received this book from the publisher through Book Look Bloggers free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
