Miracle at The Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado

Oh yeah! Give me a book about coffee and miracle… I’m in!

 

I know his work from the myriad of children’s stories I’ve read to my kiddos.

I also know him from his work on the children’s show – Hermie and friends.

But I had no idea really what to expect from Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe.

What a wonderful story of the power of prayer!

A lot of people think stories of God’s miraculous power only belongs in the Bible… or in a fictional story.

But I know that God performs miracles NOW… every day! I’ve witnessed them. I been a recipient of them.

I’ve watched them change lives and heal people… not just of sickness but of broken hearts and spirits.

Clearly Max Lucado has also experienced God’s miraculous power!

Miracle at The Higher Grounds Cafe is exactly what the cover says… “A Heavenly Novel”! WONDERFUL!

Not a book you want to miss!

Here’s a bit more about Miracle at The Higher Ground Cafe from Thomas Nelson:

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?

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 curiouser 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.

The next book in Rachel Hauck’s Magnificent Royal Wedding Series! | “How To Catch A Prince” | Book #3 | Review marathon!

Before I get into my review, I want to share this video a friend of Rachel’s put together for this wonderful book!

Doesn’t it just give you chills!

In “Once Upon A Prince”, we were introduced to the first Royal couple in Rachel Hauck’s amazing Royal Weddings series!

That story continued in “A March Bride” – a wonderful novella in the Year of Weddings series.

Princess Ever After” introduced us to the second Royal couple in a very unconventional fairy tale and since then, we’ve waited anxiously for the next installment!

 

And it’s finally here!

I’ll be honest with you. This review started very differently a week ago, when I was setting up my post in preparation for writing the review… before I had read the book.

And now that I have read the book, I find that I must start fresh – because the words I had planned do not even begin to do justice to this sensational story.

I will, however leave the words “You DON’T want to miss even one book in this terrific series!” because you DON’T! Each story is better than the last and How To Catch A Prince is… by far and away… the very BEST!

 

In the dedication at the very back of the book, Rachel makes a point of thanking so many people for helping her in her time of trial… she basically says she doesn’t know how she managed to write this book at all and she outlines for her beloved fans a bit of what she was going through at that dark time in her life.

I for one, am grateful.

I really think, when reading this book, that it was not Rachel who was writing out these touching words – it was God!

And while I feel for the difficult journey that Rachel went through… I am so very glad that she pushed herself to continue because I believe with every ounce of my being that God penned a very deep and meaningful message through her fingers.

Sometimes you just have to be completely broken – so that God can lift you up and make you whole again.

Perhaps Rachel could never have written so powerfully about Prince Stephen’s struggles if she had not been dealing with her own.

Perhaps Rachel could not have properly communicated Corina’s heartache if she had not felt the wrench in her own life.

Who knows…

Well, God knows!

And I thank God from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful story and I feel so very blessed to be able to do any tiny little thing to help get this book into the hands of even one more person.

So please, read this book. Please do not miss this exceptional story of loss, love and God’s healing power! You won’t regret it… unless you never read it, that is!

A prince, a journalist, a past they thought had been forgotten…Tweet this!

While you wait, here’s a bit more about How To Catch A Prince from GoodReads:

Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever.

Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could’ve been.

But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife’s appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close.

Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.

Christmas At Holly Hill by Martha Rogers | Stop #5 of my Salute to Christmas Reads!

 

Can you go home again? is one of the classic questions that we see in books and movies alike.

And…more often than not, it is the one where we see the most interesting story lines!

Christmas At Holly Hill
is no exception to that.

I REALLY hope to see more Christmas books from Martha Rogers!

I have read many stories with this sort of theme and this is certainly among the best!

Martha has a way with words and with characters and their stories!

From the moment Clayton steps off the train, we are “with him” emotionally.

I’m not about to ruin anything for you but Martha writes the story so well – it’s impossible not to put yourself in the characters’ shoes.

Again… Well done Martha! An exceedingly well-written book.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE finding new authors!

And I hope to see many more wonderful books by such a talented author!

 

 

A bit more about Christmas At Holly Hill:

Can Clayton Barlow prove he has changed his ways in time for Christmas? 

It is October 1898, and Clayton Barlow has just returned home after serving time in prison for his part in a bank robbery. His family welcomes him, but the townspeople are skeptical. Bored with life in the small town but determined to make a new start, he goes to work with his father, hoping to regain the town’s trust.

Clayton recognizes the schoolteacher at the Prairie Grove School as his childhood friend, Merry Lee Warner, and old feelings surface. Still, he doubts that he could ever get a woman like Merry to love him.

As the townspeople prepare for Christmas, their suspicions about Clayton lead to trouble. Will the trusting heart of an unlikely new friend be enough to restore Clayton’s relationships with his neighbors and reunite him with God and Merry?

I LOVE finding New authors!!! | Do not miss the third book in Martha Rogers (The Homeward Journey) series : “Love Never Fails”

 

Martha Rogers has written a wonderful story!

And Love Never Fails could not be more aptly named.

This story is definitely not typical, even if we can see romance coming from a mile away…

As so often happens in real life, the couple who is unexpectedly thrown together, come to the table with opposite ideas and expectations – he thinking his military background and handsome uniform will draw the attention he hopes to gain from a pretty young woman he remembers, she thinking that the young man who teased her so many years ago has no grown up and might provide an interesting foil for what might otherwise be a somewhat tedious visit.

The results of their attraction and flirtation is anything but what they’re expecting.

It’s hard to tell if the historical details of this story or the romantic sizzle is the bigger draw… but one thing is clear; the story is intriguing and it will capture you attention immediately.

Martha also includes the wonderful message of God’s love within the story – and she does it without being preachy or heavy-handed. It is simply a part of their lives and their journey and that is not always an easy thing to do.

Well done Martha!

A very well-written book. And now I find myself eager to find more books by Martha Rogers!

I LOVE finding new authors!

A bit more about Love Never Fails:

At odds over their beliefs and separated by the war, Molly and Stefan must learn to depend of God.

In book three of the Homeward Journey series, Manfred and Sallie Whiteman’s daughter Molly finishes school and returns to her home to teach. When old friends of her parents come for a visit with their son, Stefan, Molly is attracted to the young man, but all he is interested in is talking about his position in the army. When he leaves to rejoin his regiment, Molly is both relieved and saddened.

Can they overcome their differences and find love?
