Caterina Antonelli wants nothing more than to be left alone to do her job in peace and go home to her loving dog at the end of the day in Robes of Destiny by Robbi Perna. That could work, but with an upcoming exhibition of some of her boss’s Renaissance art collection, there is plenty of stress at work. Then, to add an additional strain, when Rina goes to the Port of Fort Lauderdale to pick up her Aunt Cat from a world cruise, the spontaneous free-spirited woman is not there. Convinced that there is a problem, Rina turns to the police and the FBI, but there are just no leads – only Rina’s psychic visions of her aunt interacting with people in far-away places. With only her aunt’s suitor to turn to for help, Rina becomes involved in an international event with Uncle Vince, his godson, Danny, and some operatives from Danny’s military past. Combining all their physical and mental resources, the group embarks on a hunt through the Mediterranean to rescue Cat and hopefully come home alive.
Action packed with a unique paranormal twist, Robes of Destiny by Robbi Perna is an exciting story that holds you spellbound from the first to last page. Although a strong female lead character, Rina has vulnerabilities due to her ‘gift’ and is not quick to trust others. Danny, also strong in so many ways, has his own demons and, together, he and Rina see sparks – and not romantic ones to start off with! International intrigue plays a large part in the story that winds up with Rina back home exactly where she wants to be, but not without some major changes in her life. I highly recommend Robes of Destiny and hope that this may be the beginning of a series because of the strength and depth of the characters.
