Wow! That's what I thought when I finished reading the delightful story, The Heavenly Grille Cafe, by author J.T. Livingston. Follow the story of Amanda Turner, a young woman who definitely needs a change of pace. She's lost her parents, home and job, all in a very short period of time, and decides to start anew. Not really sure where she's headed or where she'll end up, she finds herself stopping at a little restaurant that's off the beaten track, the titular "The Heavenly Grille Cafe." When she finds that the place is run by three angels, Max, Bertie and Doug, and she also meets Kris, another young woman who is struggling in her own right, Amanda's life is changed forever.

I so enjoyed The Heavenly Grille Cafe. Author J.T. Livingston has a written a completely unique story with characters that her readers will connect with, relate to, care about and continue to think of long after the book is done. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author, I don't know what is. Once I started reading, I couldn't put this lovely story down. In fact, the main piece of advice that I have for readers, besides being sure to read this book, would be to set aside enough time to read it from start to finish, you'll love it that much. Any reader who enjoys a sweet story with a strong Christian message will love The Heavenly Grille Cafe. I am so pleased to recommend this book, and I am excited to read more from the very entertaining and highly promising author, J.T. Livingston, as soon as possible!

I have read all 3 of Joyce's books and for me they were a 'do not put down" kind of reading. Some parts were joyful, some parts I cried and in each book there was a mystery to solve with surprises. The Poetry was not only beautiful but so true to life. Hope she keeps writing because I will keep reading her books.
