Chelsea Chambers’ life seems to be falling apart. After a separation with her famous husband, she moves her two children and herself to the cafe she grew up in: The Higher Grounds Cafe. Quickly after her grand reopening, she gets the IRS bill showing a very large amount of debt on the cafe. She is forced to call her NFL star of a husband to get the money to cover it, but finds out that it’s gone. Her world seems to be toppling down on top of her until a stranger shows up at the perfect time. Soon she has a line wrapping around the block to come to her cafe, but it’s not for the coffee or cupcakes. It’s to experience the “God blog.”
It has a Hallmark Christmas movie feel, and is a perfect story for this time of year. It’s very warm and is a comforting read. It was fun, and enjoyable, but also filled with actual real-life problems. Chelsea is relatable, and she has gone through a lot. Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe shows what God can do and makes the reader think about the world around them. It’s a beautifully written and captivating story.
I enjoyed it and thought it was the perfect book now that it is getting closer to Christmas (it wasn’t about Christmas, but like I said before, it has that vibe.) I would give it 3 stars.
I received this book from BookLook for an honest review.
