In Tel Aviv, eighteen-year-old New Yorker Leigh is stuck between a rock and a hard place, attempting to validate her mother's journal and finding out who her biological father is.
Leigh's complicated and, at times, painful journey becomes tangled with events and people she meets along the way. Leigh is determined to uncover the truth--nothing can deter her.
My ONLY complaint is still a HUGE compliment, when I read the last paragraph I had a little tantrum. I WANTED MORE! I turned the page...and nothing but white space. Ugh...I couldn't believe it. The suspense and ending wrapped up the book yet it didn't. I wanted more information, more details, more, more, more.
After emailing Crystal and Nicole at W.O.W, Women On Writing, who organized this tour, I had the joy to communicate with Michelle personally. She was so kind and patient with me as I double checked to make sure the PDF I received had all the pages on it. As I thought about it, after the fact, if it was me, I'd be tickled if someone enjoyed something I wrote so much they wanted more.
As I looked around for more information I learned Bloody Coffee is actually the second book in the Pinnacle Series. What?! This is the second book, you know I downloaded the first book as soon as I learned about it. Pinnacle Lust gives the back story about Leigh's mother before she was a Mom. Oh yeah, I'm looking forward to reading this one. I have another book to review first then it's back to the Pinnacle Series.
If you like suspense and mystery, a dynamic mother-daughter relationship then you need to check out Michelle's books. You'll love them. I recommended them to my twenty-year-old daughter too. She's reading them once classes and finals are done.

She lived through four wars and served in the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Unlike her first year of service in an armored division in the Golan Heights, she served her second year serving in the medical corps where she interacted directly with the injured soldiers of the Peace of Galilee war and their families. This interaction, along with the exposure to the hospital atmosphere, fascinated Michelle and further touched her heart. She went on to get a BS degree in Nursing in Tel-Aviv, and practiced internationally for 32 years in various positions in the surgical field and quickly advanced into health care administration. During her career she worked in the Operating Room, Recovery Room, and CCU—along with many other duties.
Writing was Michelle’s outlet at first, but it soon became her passion. Now, she is a full-time writer. Her international background, along with her military and nursing experience is always at the tip of her pen. Her first novel, Pinnacle Lust, started the Pinnacle trilogy and won the Beach Book Festival in the Romance category, as well as received several honorable mentions in other book contests. It was published to rave reviews.
Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes. She currently splits her time between Florida and Georgia, where she is at work on her next two books. Visit her website at www.michelledimstpierre.com.
