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.

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe stole my heart and had me in tears.
From the cafe, to the characters, to the delectable goodies…Max has crafted a story that is more than just entertaining, but heart-changing.
I could totally empathize with Chelsea, trying to keep her cafe afloat while everything seems to be falling apart.
I loved the way the author chose to tell this story, allowing readers to see into the unseen and sharing Manny….er, I mean Samuel’s perspective. Manny is absolutely one of my favorite characters I’ve encountered in fiction. He’s a hi-top wearing, coffee making, miracle-working, Star War watching phenomenon! And I love him! Psst….I think you will too.
This story was a delight from start to finish. The God-blog questions and responses brought tears to my eyes and were a powerful reminder that God “gets” me. There was a particular scene in the book (Chapter 49)…I wept at this scene, I needed this scene…I need to be reminded that I am never alone. This is a short read, but unforgettable. Don’t miss it!
