Bright Angels Descending: The Domenico Family Case Files by Robbi Perna introduces readers to a fascinating cast of characters and mixes romance with suspense and the quest for redemption. The characters are compelling and each is imagined with flaws that make them genuinely human and convincing. I love it when I meet characters who are ordinary, but who are steeped in very challenging situations. Guiliana is unemployed and suffering in her marriage, and the reader is curious to discover what happens when she meets the good-natured Michael? Marco is a soldier who suffers an injury during a mission, a broken man in need of healing, both physically and emotionally. And then there is a widow forced by tragic circumstances to raise her two daughters alone. But can Gabriel be of any help to her?

Robbi Perna’s novel is fast-paced and brilliantly crafted to keep the reader utterly engaged. Apart from the cast of compelling characters, the writing is impeccable and the interesting, natural-sounding dialogues with vivid descriptions make it a great read. The story begins with revealing conversations and the reader is immediately introduced to some of the key characters. I enjoyed how the author weaves the themes of romance and family, self-search and personal growth, and redemption into the story. The chapters are well composed, with scenes that are emotionally rich and that allow readers to form strong images in their minds. Bright Angels Descending: The Domenico Family Case Files is the kind of book that reminds readers of what is essentially human in them, arousing strong emotions of empathy and admiration for the characters. It is a delightful read.
