Publisher's Summary

When the Lusitania sank, more than 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations.

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.

    Story
    "Romantic, Funny, Clever & Heart-pounding Action!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Three Fates to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! In most cases audio books are better because of the voices put to the characters and if the narrator is really good, like this one, can also give the read a certain pace of excitement to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! What a great listen! I was particularly interested in the way the author used the factful sinking of a ship and family ties to weave an extraordinary story that keeps your attention to the end.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is tough to answer, but probably the ending was the best.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Romantic and packed with action! Or, Who will win and who will lose?


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't written many reviews, but I was compelled to write one for this really fun and exciting book! Three Fates is one of the best of many, many books I have listened to.

    "Boring"

    I love Nora Roberts .. yet this book is so boring I can't even make it beyond the first part. I have give up on it and bought another book. Very surprising for Norra's work.

    Story
    "3 ½ stars. Not as engaging as I’d like"

    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.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    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

    Story
    "The number three does not always a novel make."
    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Bernadette Quigley?

    It is not a very pleasant listen. I usually enjoy Nora's books, but this book is just erratic, kind of all over the place. Roughly hewn. Since I'm a fan, I will of course listen to another.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    Dialogue. I never thought I would say this about one of her books. The dialogue Is so rugged in this book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Quigley?

    I don't think the narrator is at fault (although she does seem to pause at some awkward moments and stumble over some words.) I have a feeling it's the material she has to work with.


    What character would you cut from Three Fates?

    All of the female love interests. I cannot tolerate any of them. Their character traits are cartoonish. I found myself chuckling during supposedly serious scenes.

    "great book"

    Another suspense novel with a romantic twist. The reader does a great job with all characters giving them their own distinct personality.

    Story
    "Well Put Together Romantic Suspense"

    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.

    "It's Nora"

    Same thing different day. Enjoyable but predictable. Maybe odd number of males and females would help.
