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 ...

    Probably one of the most intense books, not to mention horrific I have read from this author in a really long time. It was amazing. Emotional, terrifying, and heartwarming, all rolled into one couldn't put it down, addicting read. ...

    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 ...

    Shelter in Place 4.5 Stars Nora Roberts does it again! The first 3rd of this book is absolutely incredible - the descriptions of the mass shooting and its aftermath are so intense and gripping that one feels as if they are experiencing the events with the characters. The sec...

    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...

    Check out all of my reviews at: www.avonnalovesgenres.com SHELTER IN PLACE by Nora Roberts had my emotions all over the place, but isn?t that what a good book does? Part psychological thriller, part romantic suspense and part coming of age for a group who survive one of the horror...

    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 ...

    In Shelter in Place, Nora Roberts dishes out a sensitive/timely tale with a gut punching opening. It?s been a while since I?ve read a Roberts novel but in this one she continues to have compelling characters and twists. For the most part this was a gripping read, full of suspense w...

    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...

    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 the hero and heroine. The heroine?s grandmother had more chemistry with the hero than she did. I greatly enjoyed the relationship between the hero and the grandmother so much more than the boring one he had with th...

    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...

    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...

    Actually closer to 3.5. As I?ve come to expect from Nora Roberts this was a well written, straightforward read with interesting, varied well-rounded characters, who were easy to connect with. The Mall shooting was tastefully handled ? still horrific and tense of course ? but ...
