Shelter in Place

Sometimes, there is nowhere safe to hide. It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Mothers and children shopped together, and the manager at the video-game store tended to customers. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes Sometimes, there is nowhere safe to hide. It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three te...

    Meeting today?s headlines head-on with a mass shooting, Nora Roberts? latest release may be a trigger (no pun intended) for many readers. I admit that the blurb left me a bit hesitant. Roberts expertly creates a realistic story where the lives of two teenagers are forever change...

    Shelter In Place has to be one of my favourite novels by Nora Roberts. The story begins with a mass shooting at a mall in the U.S. followed by a related killer out to murder the survivors. However, the subsequent events in the lives of the victims are portrayed as happy and positive ...

    Simone, Mi and Tish ? best friends, with Mi and Tish there for Simone after a nasty breakup with a boyfriend ? sixteen years of age and waiting for the movie to start. The theatre in the DownEast Mall was busy, as was the mall outside the doors. Families shopping, video games pumpi...

    Trigger warning: mass shooting Nora Roberts has been traveling some dark roads lately and I for one am not finding myself loving the results. I adore Roberts romances, but alas I wouldn't hardly classify this as one (yes there is a HEA so technically it fits the bill). There is ...

    Absolutely incredible! I ate this book up in a short time because it was so intriguing with amazing characters. This is my favorite Nora Roberts book to date that I have read so far (have not read all her books though). The angst, perseverance, and growth of these characters is so deta...

    In the space of a few minutes, the lives of those visiting or working at the DownEast Mall and adjacent theater in Rockpoint, Maine were permanently altered. Three shooters decided that whatever was wrong in their lives warranted the selfish actions they took in those moments. Survivor...

    Full review now posted! In my opinion, Nora Roberts is one of the most underrated authors ever. Yes, she?s incredibly popular, but her work is relegated in people?s minds to chick-lit and breezy, mindless beach reads. There?s so much more to her work than that, especially her ...

    I should have been more patient and waited another week or so longer for this to be acquired by my library, rather than buying it. I was OK for about 12% of this, then we skipped to bits about the psycho-killer, and I just can't. It's just too sick inside the psycho-killer's head. ...

    There have been quite a few books lately that have had reference or stories told around mass shooting, some have been written well some not so well. Some concentrated on the drama of it all some on the newsworthiness and some on the effects and events leading up to it. Nora Ro...

    4.5 stars Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts was so much more than I expected. I must admit I don't read her blurbs anymore. She is a MUST READ author for me and her standalone signature novels are highly anticipated and always, always immediately devoured. Shelter in Place was a touc...

    I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review The first chapter that featured the mall shooting was incredibly terrifying, mostly due to the fact that I had just been to the mall cinema in an empty theater watching Black Panther before starting the...

    Thank you to St. Martin's Press for an Advance Readers' Copy in exchange for an honest review First and foremost, I liked this book. But I am going to start with the elephant in the room. Obviously, Nora started writing it a while ago, and had no idea that gun violence would be ...

    Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher in exchange for an fair and honest review. Suspense - Thriller - Nasty Baddie all work great. This book has a Psychopath Baddie worthy of Karen Rose. The romance, well, let's just say it's a step above the cozy variety ...

    4.5* Another great thriller! Roberts grabs you from the first page and doesn?t let go! Found myself having to keep reading, mesmerised by the narrative, and finishing the book in just over a day! Let?s start with the characters. Roberts is excellent at this, putting together ...

    Nora Roberts? latest reads a lot like one of her JD Robb books, with a serial killer on the loose. Instead of Eve Dallas, though, we?ve got Reed Quartermaine, small town cop who won?t let go of the case even though the FBI tells him to get lost. The story starts with three tee...

    4.5 stars. I love this one, the story pull me in, the romance part is rather thin though but is sweet ? also too many pages given to the villain ?. This book feels like a feminist story to me, perhaps that #metoo movement give Ms. Roberts few ideas, many characters involved...

    I didn?t like the heroine and couldn?t feel the chemistry between them. The heroine?s grandmother had more chemistry with the hero than she did. I greatly enjoyed the relationship between the grandmother and hero so much more than the boring one he had with the heroine. The ro...

    Wow! This book was amazing! I honestly am struggling with what to say about this one - the story had me hooked from the first page and by 10% I was crying so hard my husband thought something was wrong with me. Incredibly emotional and so well written I was able to visualize everything...

    Well, I can't be a smartass for this review. It was just too close to home to joke about. This story is really timely because it is about a mass shooting. It really gets in-depth with what happens with those who survived and how their lives were changed. So, the book is divided into...

    I'm so torn on how to rate this one. There were quite a few positive points but there were also quite a few negative points. There were several times while reading where I just put the book down as it wasn't pulling me in and I was either bored, irritated or doing an eye roll. The b...

    As dark as the subject matter of a mass shooting in a mall can be, this had some really light & tender hearted moments. That?s the beauty of Nora Roberts. Reading her books is like slipping on your favorite sweats. Every damn time. Thanks to St. Martins Press for this early fin...

    Wow! Nora Roberts has created a terrifying story right out of today's headlines. Knowing how very real this story could be, I found myself crying as I read about the needless death of so many innocent people during a mass shooting at a US mall. Amazing plot, engaging, colorful characte...

    Nora Roberts is BOLD! I don't know of many authors who could get away with what Nora accomplished in Shelter In Place without losing some fans. In her newest book, set to come out in the summer of 2018, Nora tackles a topic that has become all too common in society today - a mass sh...

    This was an intense, emotional book detailing the aftermath of a fictional mass shooting in Maine. As a warning, with all the mass shootings that have been occurring recently in the US, the first part of the book can be pretty intense to read. I found it quite triggering. Much of the n...

    I?ve never witnessed a mass shooting, never been subjected to that terror or the yawning grief of losing a loved one and I hope to God I never do. I don?t have to experience it to know what it?s like, not when Nora Roberts made me feel as if it was happening to me. My God, I...
