“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

“This book was an amazing addition to the Ella Perri mystery series!! I couldn’t (and didn’t want to) put it down. The character development is incredible, as is the author’s ability to make connections within the twisting and turning plot. You will constantly be wondering what’s next – in the best way! There are so many details that are well thought out, I highly recommend giving it a read.” ~Amazon Reviewer

“…I love Ms. Baccaro’s writing style. It reads effortlessly and brilliantly. Like the first two books in this series, I didn’t want it to end. You can’t help but get lost in her storytelling. What a truly enjoyable, page-turning, character-loving book.” ~Goodreads Reviewer

“I loved this third book in a series, Lies That Bind, by Krissy Baccaro. It’s a prequel regarding Luca’s family history that doesn’t miss a step in the delightful writing style she exhibits in her first two books. I was immediately drawn into this story and couldn’t put it down…” Bookbub Reviewer




Behind closed doors, it’s bad for the Perri family. And the masks they wear deceive even the most perceptive eyes. Each of them—Sal and Isabella and sons, Franco and Luca—harbors a secret. No one knows what they’re hiding…or what they’re capable of.

1930s pre-war Italy a young girl has gone missing from Chianlalea, a quaint fishing village at the edge of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It’s eerily reminiscent of a similar incident that happened to Isabella Perri when she was a child.

The missing girl’s body surfaces near the Perri’s marina. And when fingers point at Sal because of his alleged mafia connections Isabella stands by him, refusing to accept the gossip. And the warnings.

Frightful noises in the middle of the night. An intruder’s footsteps below. A second girl, Gia, a friend of Franco and Luca, goes missing. The girl with the pretty smile who, only a few days earlier, had been at their house. Discrepancies in the boys’ stories make them suspect and Isabella starts to question everything she thought she knew.

Ominous notes beneath the door, the locked shed looming in the backyard, and whispers of lies and deceit prove that Isabella and her family are no longer safe. And as she peels back the layers of her small town, secrets of her family begin to emerge. Secrets she didn’t know existed.

Still scared, but refusing to remain silent, Isabella vows to make things right, protect her children, and save the next victim. But doing so will change all of their lives.
