**** “Third Base” by P.C Zick
Familial discord and harmony. Multiculturalism. Friendship and loyalty. Relationship ups and downs. Philanthropy. And America’s favorite pastime: Baseball.
P.C Zick has written an enjoyable and fun novella that includes all of the above and more. An action packed story around a third baseman and his baseball team and a woman and her philanthropic programs.
The author has brought together two wonderful main characters, their life passions, their cultural beliefs and practices and created a great duo. The parents…have mixed feelings about their relationship depending on who you ask. And their reasons for their beliefs vary widely.
While both main characters also have individuals and issues which come up from their past which also create a wedge between the two from time to time, in the end, Tomas and Adriana find a way to make their relationship work, their interests and passions bring about goodness and positive change for many others, and are able to bring their family members to a better understanding and acceptance of their relationship.
All of this takes place behind a wonderful and engaging baseball season that any baseball fan will definitely enjoy following and cheering for…
An engaging read on many levels, the author seamlessly brings together all the multi-stories that make up this novella. No story line is dropped or left unanswered. She is thorough in her descriptions, character development, and scene presentation allowing the reader to follow the multiple story lines easily.
A great novella that brings together so many aspects of life in a very realistic manner that any reader will enjoy reading this novella. A great beach read, rainy day read…or anytime or place read. And even if you aren’t a baseball fan you will still enjoy this novella due to its multiple story lines. Highly recommend it.

Adriana Moretti’s husband Leo died a year ago and at twenty-five she is trying to continue on with his charitable work, including Habitat for Humanity.
Tomas Vegas is entering his second year playing third base for the Pittsburgh Pirates and seems to be known more for his supermodel girlfriend, Madrid, than his charitable associations. Yet Tomas attends an event where he meets Adriana and is immediately intrigued with the work she does.
Tomas realizes he wants to do more with his life and questions his relationship with Madrid who appears to be only interested in money. As Tomas and Adriana grow closer they must decide if they want a relationship and perhaps it may be safer to keep it quiet.
When it looks like someone is trying to sabotage any future for them, they must decide if they can put their trust in each other or are their past relationships going to get in the way?
The relationship between Adriana and Tomas is very hot!! I also loved how Adriana’s charitable work brought her into situations with the elite of Pittsburgh’s athletes of the Penguins and Steelers as well!
