For some reason just could not get into this book. Ending was better. Not one of my favorites. ( )

This is a fast moving novel with a bevvy of gorgeous young people as the heroes. These three women and three men are all attractive and are described in detail. Alongside the action the blossoming relationships between these six are followed. Another beautiful woman is the bad guy, a rich widow who is as heartless as any bad guy. The action is about three small silver statues, the three fates and moves between Ireland, the Czech Republic, Greece and the US. ( )

The Fates are three silver statuettes representing Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos. Owning the complete collection of three would render anyone wealthy. One of the three was allegedly lost with the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915. However, when this statuette shows up it leads art historians and collectors alike to begin searching for the other two. The reader is introduced to the cast of six characters who resolve to reunite the three, throwing in a little romance along the way.

I normally do not pick up Nora Roberts books on my own but am quite often handed them by a girlfriend. When I do read them I find I enjoy her books and especially her dialogue. Ms. Roberts often has me wishing I could think that quickly on my feet and participate in some witty repartee. It was a fun read.

If you like Nora Roberts Romance. Then you will probably enjoy. Predictable, but enjoyable enough without getting to intense and can listen to in the background as I work. ( )

Book description
When the Lusitania sank, more than one thousand 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.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0515135062, Mass Market Paperback)

Setting: Ireland, Europe, and New York City

Sensuality: 7

Irish siblings Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan cherish the family legend of their great-great-grandfather's acquisition of one of the Fates, a trio of priceless, long-separated silver statues. When the Sullivans' Fate is stolen by an unscrupulous New York antiquities dealer, they vow to retrieve the little silver lady, and thus begins a quest that will send them racing across Europe, traveling through Ireland, and dodging killers in New York City. Most importantly, their search for their Fate and her two sister statues brings them into the world of a brilliant female mythology professor, a free-spirited exotic dancer, and a security expert adept at breaking and entering. This diverse sextet must meld their talents in order to thwart their enemy, retrieve the stolen statue, and stay alive while administering their particular brand of justice.

Prolific author Nora Roberts's latest tale of adventure and romance is a nonstop page-turner with quirky heroines, strong heroes, and a delightfully nefarious villainess. Toss in strong Irish, European, and New York settings, interesting secondary characters, and a plot with intriguing twists and turns and the result is romantic suspense at its best. --Lois Faye Dyer
