Miracle at the Higher Ground Cafe Book Review

I recently started reviewing books for Booklook Bloggers. This is my first review.

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe by New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado was my choice to read and review.  This is my first book of Mr. Lucado's to read. It is described on the cover as a " Heavenly Novel" and is written from a Christian perspective. It's is a fictional novel that is a light and easy read.  It would be great to read on an airplane or laying on the beach. Mr.Lucado  writes a  fictional story in which you will quickly become involved.  The novel follows a young mother, Chelsea Chambers in opening an old-fashioned coffee shop. You experience her trials of divorce, single parenthood and owning her own business. Even though she has several upsets, she has unexpected help and experiences a unique way to make her business flourish. I do not agree with the ideology on how her business became lucrative. I don't believe this is how God works but, this is a fictional work and I had to keep that in perspective. I have to say the book was fairly predictable and I knew how it would end. I would hesitantly  recommend it to someone looking for an easy read who is not looking for a strict scriptural foundation .
