Coffee Anyone? Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe Can Fill Your Order.

Deb’s Dozen: Cappucino, cupcakes, and conversation with God. Prayer, Questions, Reconciliation—Angels all around.

I love Max Lucado’s work but I had not realized he wrote fiction as well. Miracle at the Higher Ground Café is a cute story about standing firm in your faith and working through your problems.

Granted, Chelsea Chambers is not your usual coffee shop owner—she’s inherited one from her mom and grandmother along with some “to-die-for” recipes. She’s also inherited a coffee shop well bathed in prayer.

When all her best work and planning still aren’t enough to allow her to succeed and to pay her bills, God sends her some help in the form of a somewhat clumsy but talented barista named Manny.

You’ll enjoy reading about Chelsea and her kids along with Manny and her other barista, the hippie-dressed Katrina. You’ll want to hate Chelsea’s soon-to-be-ex-husband, Sawyer, a former NFL superstar, but he is charming. Four stars for this Miracle—worth the read if you like cute, heart-warming stories with happy endings.

“More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.” The cover copy quoted also reminds me that the book includes discussion questions if you want to read the story in your book club. And there’s a giveaway!
