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.

Yes, there are some great saucy scenes as well as some intellectual stimulation for all the academics out there...I always wonder whether it is true...I must look that up one day...Hmm.
The book is about the legendary 3 fates that people are unsure whether they really exist, but when they are bought together they have a special power. Well the fates obviously put the fates of the right people in the right place for things to happen. What I like about Nora Jones books, the other one being The Witness, is that while they satisfy my intellectual craving for a good listen where I can learn something new, they also have a couple of good saucy scenes that are always good for anyones appetite!
If I had read this before the Witness, then I would have never picked up the Witness. That would have been a shame because the Witness was a great book. I almost stopped listening, but stuck with it. The ending really picked up.
Like I said the ending was better than the beginning.
This read was difficult to get into, but after much menutia, the story was gripping.
Fifty Shades of Grey
Narrator did great with voices. I could determine who was speaking at any point.
the second part of the book was worth it.
The narrator is appalling. Narration is so boring and her voice grates. The men sound like perverts. Names are mispronounced. Accents very badly done. Through the narrator's performance, the story is uninteresting, proceeding like a dull flat line. What a pity because the story itself seems exciting and the characters have promise but in the hands of this narrator I couldn't wait to get to the end so I didn't need to listen to her awful storytelling anymore.
It's not the story but the narrator that needs changing.
The story seems interesting enough.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Sure, there are a few sexy scenes that a 'vanilla' romance reader might find offensive.
It is better than the 'typical' Nora Roberts book. It was a more complex plot and enjoyable action along with romance (or 3 romances!)
It was excellent...I adore the Irish accents!
No, I don't have extreme reactions. It was fun, fast paced with a good mystery and romances all in one.
Though it checked back to a historical event this was NOT a historical romance...(I don't care for historical romances.)
I love the intertwining of the relationships with the fates.
I love the Irish family. The personalities of the individual members were realistic of what real family relationships are.
This was the first time I've listening to Bernadette Quigley and I thought she did a wonderful job handling all the different characters. I always knew who was speaking.
I didn't listen to this in one sitting, but I did extend my listening by an hour twice. My audible account is my luxury because I travel for work and these books help pass the time.
Another hit for Nora Roberts - well done!
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
I love Nora Roberts writing and this book was her usual good production. A bit like having a meal at a restaurant and when someone asks you a week later what it was like and you honestly can't remember.. It wasn't bad, it wasn't fantastic, it was acceptably ok.
Retired "Okie" librarian & happy to have found Audible for good stories & staying in touch with new authors & books.
Yes! The more explicted sex descriptions. There are only 3 but not necessary to the story. The plot is intriguing and interestingly educational. The action shifts from country to country. How the characters connect is intriguing.
Maybe, maybe not. This was not actually a murder mystery but a romance with suspense. It was easy listening.
No, I was not familiar with the narrator but had listened to the sample. She was excellent! The Irish accents were pleasant and the other voices were well done, both male & female.
No, the story wrapped up neatly. All the characters were taken care of in good time.
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
Fairly predictable story, by I enjoyed sticking with it as it unravelled and finding out how it would get to the predictable ending.
I love to multi-task with Audible!
Bernadette has a quality to her voices that adds to each of the charactors. I especially liked her scottish accents. She did a bang up job!
I really enjoyed this story, I was pleasantly suprised at the writing, not the usual Nora Roberts style. Although I'm a fan of Nora Roberts this one seemed to veer from her venue, it was more realistic than many of her other books.
