    "This book is a nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat, whodunnit or whodinnitdoit?... I absolutely LOVED this book and understand that it is the last in a series. NOOOOO! Can be read as a standalone but I can’t wait to read the others both in this series and by this author in general. Her writing style makes for easy reading, her imagination makes it THRILLING. BRAVO!" ~Amazon Reviewer

    "To say that I’ve been anxiously awaiting this prequel is an understatement. I’ve read both books in Baccaro’s Ella Perri Mysteries Series and enjoyed the strong female characters who search for their family’s truth. But this prequel goes deeper and reveals how the saga began. It’s a change of perspective that is illuminating and surprising." ~Amazon Reviewer

    2022 Finalist in the Wishing Shelf Book Awards/Adult Books Category for Buried Secrets

    "Baccaro's book will provide armchair sleuths with loads of fun and red herrings to puzzle along with. Buried Secrets: An Ella Perri Mystery, Book 1 is most highly recommended." - Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorites

    "World War II has provided a great backdrop for the story in this well-written and superbly researched book. This is a heartbreaking story with plenty of suspense and great characters. All families have secrets. But not like this." ~Amazon Reviewer

    2021 International Review of Books Badge

    "Truly an extraordinary tale of misfortune, evil, and overcoming obstacles in order to be reunited with those you have loved and lost. Can happiness be found again? Absolutely, as we learn here, as the women find renewed happiness after opening themselves up to the possibility. An enlightening and dynamic plot that weaves its way into our hearts and teaches us that all is not lost as long as we have faith in life and those we love.
    I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. A good story makes us empathize with the characters as well as fear those that wish to do harm to others. And this is exactly what I felt, straight through to the very last page of the book. I highly recommend it to all those who enjoy reading a saga that spans several generations, but also for those who just like a really touching and realistic story with characters who you can relate to." ~Tanja Slijepcevic, International Review of Books

    "I like the mystery and intrigue of the story spanning from years and from the US to Italy. It's a great read following Ella as she discovers her family secrets. I've always loved a mystery. This one does not disappoint. The story goes back and forth between past and present but it's always clear where you are at and it leaves wonderful cliffhangers, making the reader want to read on. I highly recommend this second book, One Last Secret, in the series as well as the first one, Buried Secrets." ~Amazon Reviewer

    If you enjoy novels about women who are finding themselves again, women who are easily relatable to any reader, and a novel about marriage, sex, and finding happiness (even if their lives seems perfect to the outside eye), then this is a must read for you!
    —Elle's Book Blog

    I loved all the characters but the four main women were true stars, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Also, I loved how they each started reading the series with the same expectations, but they took away different lessons. There was a lot of character growth, with a touch of drama. Fifty, Four Ways is more interesting than Sex and the City and ten times more interesting than the series that inspired it! Katherine Cobb is a wonderful, funny author.
    —Online Book Club

    Steamy in its own right, Fifty, Four Ways starts out with four women who bond over a shared interest in the Fifty Shades of Gray book series, yet their own personal stories come into play between the lines and scenarios that made Gray the sensual hit it is. ...all four give us their own perspective, offering the reader a deeper and more honest take on what can happen when the edges of fantasy begin to blur within the realm of reality. Nothing said was veiled or shy. There are plenty of moments ... that are steamy and hot and would easily push some outside of their comfort zones, which is what I appreciated most about the novel. While most of us are content to live within our own wild imaginations, we're given a chance to live vicariously through Kelli, Mel, Candy, and Lynn. There are realistic reactions from their spouses, only adding to the depth of the story and the characters within it. ...with good forward momentum, the story never lagged and kept me more than interested... It's a strong, sexy, empowering story- one worth reading!

    Review from Literary Titan

    In Sport: A Stage for Life: How To Connect With the Touchstones of Elite Performance And Personal Fulfillment, readers are immersed in the world of Water Polo and other sports as the authors share interesting facts, aspects, and tips about their favorite sports and others. Cristiana Pinciroli and Pedro Pinciroli have written an intriguing and enlightening book that is relevant in both the world of sports and real life. Both father and daughter were professional water polo players who participated in major leagues and big tournaments worldwide. Cristiana played in Italy and captained the Brazilian national team for more than a decade, while her father, Pedro, represented Brazil at two Olympics, among other major sports events. As you read about the stories of these two prolific sports icons, you realize that sports are not just for fun, as they also play a critical role in the wellness of society.

    I like how Cristiana starts the book. The author familiarizes the reader with her story, writing about her father’s achievements and how her inspiration for sports was born. Cristiana Pinciroli is an engaging author. Her writing gives one a sense of realization. When talking about her background and family, Cristiana makes the reader feel every moment of her writing. She chronicles funny stories and witty tales and is authentic in her writing. Cristiana’s love for the game is moving, and her dedication and passion are admirable. When writing about water polo, the author ensures that even readers that are not familiar with the game grasp how it is played. The readers get it all from the rules, how the scores are counted, training, and tips on being a good player and playing in big matches.

    Sport: A Stage for Life is well written, and one of my favorite things in the book is the historical tidbits. There is a ton to learn about Latin America and the western world and the changes that have been happening over the years, whether in politics, sports, economic changes, and social transformations. One can draw many lessons from the authors’ lives and other sports professionals discussed in the book; endurance and competitiveness are some of the greatest elements of a great sportsman or sportswoman. Practice every chance you get and build your confidence with every game. Both big and small games are important, as there is something to learn.

    Sport: A Stage for Life is an inspirational self-help book that gives readers insight into making personal transformations. This well-written book has 12 chapters that take you through the ins and outs of sports and enlighten you on life hacks. The authors may have written about sports, but shared lessons can help the reader in their day-to-day activities. Whether focusing on health, discipline, setting goals, being spirited, or following your dream, Cristiana and Pedro Pinciroli have tips that will help you elevate your mindset and whole being.

  • About the Author: Hope is a 30-something woman pursuing her degree in forensic psychology after her experience in Lebanon, and her passion is growing daily to help others. Although she has moved around the world from Dubai to the USA, Hope is currently exploring the city of Charlotte. With her cat Sylvester, whom she rescued when she found out her verdict seven years ago, Hope is now learning and developing psychological theories to adapt to her personality and give back to the community as best as possible. She is currently pursuing her M.Ed. in Clinical Psychology at Winthrop University and is to graduate in May 2023.

    Hope was student teaching at an amazing school in Lebanon, attending university to attain her bachelor’s degree in education, enjoying terrific relationships with her friends, and falling in love. Her life was about as close to perfect as it gets — until May 11 when she woke up surrounded by police with guns to her face.

    Now, with the release of “Caged Free Bird” (published by Archway Publishing), she bares her life story to the world and invites readers to see the truth about the female prison system in the Middle East through the eyes of an innocent woman.

    In a collection of diary entries written with a stolen pen and papers, Hope reveals the psychological and physical torment she endured for months, from jails to prisons in Lebanon. With eight months of jail time to prove her innocence, she documents her experiences as she meets innocent and guilty women of all ages and backgrounds. Her experiences are horrifying and sometimes laughable, as much as they are heart wrenching and prove resilience. She talks about her mental health journey, from how she was wrongly treated and to she persevered to rebuild her life. Ultimately, these traumatic events led Hope to what she is today: a woman fighting back.
