Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans. And Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan are determined to recover their great-great-grandfather's treasure, reunite the Three Fates, and make their fortune.
The quest will take them from their home in Ireland to Helsinki, Prague, and New York and introduce them to a formidable female professor whose knowledge of Greek mythology will aid them in their quest; to a daring exotic dancer who sees the Fates as her chance at a new life; and to a seductive security expert who knows how to play high-tech cat-and-mouse. And it will pit them in a suspenseful fight against an ambitious woman who will stop at nothing to acquire the Fates.

but nice enough. Kept my interest.
Three people meet and fall in love with three others, which makes six for the group trying to locate three antique silver statues. A bad guy and thugs are the main enemy. An elaborate plan is set in place. There is some fun girl bonding among the three women.
I loved one scene where shy, nervous, hypochondriac Tia was planting bugs in the bad guy’s store. Bad guy confronts her. Tia is fumbling and nervous, but decides to use it and plays up her nervousness. Bad guy is impatient wanting to get Tia out of the store and takes Tia to the office. There Tia secretly plants another bug.
Bernadette Quigley is excellent. She used a pleasant Irish accent for four characters. She had a great accent for the female bad guy Anita – sneering, condescending, snake-like. She also had a very good general narration style. I was impressed enough to look up other books she narrated.
Genre: romantic suspense
I love WWII fiction & time slip stories. I teach in a Christian high school & love to share books w/ my students!
One of my favorite audiobooks. Bernadette Quigley did a great job with the Irish accents. Made this great story even more enjoyable!
I'm addicted to audiobooks, particularly thrillers and erotic reads. I'd love for you to follow my reviews!
It took me a while to get into this book, but I wound up liking it pretty well by the end. This story is steeped in symbolism and filled with threes and the theme of FATE. Roberts takes an Irish family and finds mates for each of them as they rush around trying to unite the three fates (statues). It's mildly entertaining with an intriguing villain, well fleshed out characters, and a caper type ending. A pleasant romance that, once it gets going, will help you pass some hours. Wonderful narration. Recommend for fans of romantic suspense.
Most importantly the narrator's pleasant voice, and her good use of differences in the characters. The story line had enough tension and romance to keep you listening for a good while.
I listened for several hours at a time while I worked, but at some point I had to reluctantly leave off to attend to matters that needed my attention.
I enjoyed the story. Well written - heart warming, enough turns & twists to hold my interest & a nice ending.
No, I was tired of hearing the "f" word all the time. The story was intriguing though.
I liked the way she portrayed the different characters. She did a great job.
i love listening to stories in my car!
I love Nora Roberts and I started this book and couldn't stand the narrater, so I put the book down. I ran out of books to listen to so I picked it back up and so glad I did😃 the story gets better and better and I ended up loving the book
