Description

Product Description

From Nora Roberts comes the #1 New York Times bestseller Shelter in Place (June 2018)a powerful tale of heart, heroism...and propulsive suspense.

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 before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. In the years that followed, one would dedicate himself to a law enforcement career. Another would close herself off, trying to bury the memory of huddling in a ladies’ room, helplessly clutching her cell phone―until she finally found a way to pour the emotions of that night into her art.

But one person wasn’t satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait―and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

From the author of Year One and Come Sundown, Shelter in Place blends propulsive suspense, a cast of vivid characters, and intimate psychological insight in a rich, exciting read.

Review

"Roberts'' newest is part thriller, part romance, part survivors'' psychological study with a touch of New Age magic―and a lively, captivating read." - Kirkus

"Roberts lets the sharply outlined characters, including an unusual villain, take center stage in another tautly plotted page-turner that suspense and thriller readers will love." - Library Journal

"Roberts’ latest polished novel delivers all the literary touchstones her fans have come to expect, including high-stakes suspense, a generous dollop of romance, a thoughtful exploration of the strong bonds of family and friendship that women create for themselves." - Booklist

“[The] real draw is the story, which has some welcome red herrings and a page-turning brio that elevates it above the average thriller.” - Publishers Weekly

This is the first time I have taken a week to read a NR book; however, this book was so different. I could not just bang through it.

The timing on this book was emotional. The book starts with a mass shooting in a mall. I read other reviews that said the book seemed preachy, I thought it was pretty realistic. It is a very slow moving romance, the couple does not even meet until the 50 percent part of the book.

The book was thorough on developing the characters and how and why they turned out like they did. It was extremely well done. There were parts that made me uncomfortable and brought tears to my eyes. So kudos to the author.

I am at the point with NR that I am only reading her single release in the spring and the JD Robb books. While these were very familiar personality characters, they stood on their own. I did not give it 5 stars, because while the story was very well done, this is not a book I would go back and re read. There was not a character I loved. I felt all characters just moved the storyline, I didn''t connect like I thought I would. I ended up not caring for Simone, and the Chief, well he was okay, I just didn''t see why he loved Simone. The romance didn''t connect for me, maybe b/c I didn''t like Simone. And it could be silly little things like, why does there always need to be some form of witchcraft or mystical junk in the book? It is a little too patterned and predictable that way for me to push it into 5 stars.
I liked the town, I loved the place. The book was emotionally wrenching, I am glad I read it.

This is my first truly unhappy review of Nora''s books. I almost quit about 1/3 in and forced myself to keep reading, it had to get better. I kept waiting for Reed and Simone to connect and it didn''t happen until halfway through. This is one I''ll have to read again soon, but I will skip over the horrible time spent in the mind of the villain, the awful things she did and just read the good (IMHO) parts. Some may like delving into the psychopathic mind of a truly awful villain, but not I. Nora doesn''t do it often, but it''s not for me.

This was a great story and I had a hard time putting the book down. I cried during several different parts. The beginning was heartbreaking and so very timely with what is going on in our world today. I loved that as the book progressed through the years from the mass shooting we were able to see how the main characters grew and changed and how that tragedy affected their lives - whether it was their family dynamics or friendships or romantic relationships. The flip side of that was watching how the villain of the story progressed through the years - the additional tragedy that she caused and the coldness in the way she did it. That character was chilling and I will say that I had more than one nightmare the first night after I started reading the book. I enjoyed all the characters very much, but CiCi was my favorite. This book is definitely worth reading.

I have been a Nora Roberts fan from the beginning of her career, and I can honestly say I disliked almost every character in this book. Also, this was the most poorly crafted story I’ve read lately period. To say I was disappointed in this purchase, is a vast understatement.

I received a preview of the first chapter of this book several months ago a n immediately put it on preorder even though the release date was further in advance than I usually buy. But, hey, Nora Roberts. This book has a similar format as the Witness which I really liked, although I found the subplots in the witness much more entertaining. (I’ve never really found living in the mind of the killer very compelling, although Roberts manages it with her usual flair.)
There is no real mystery here as we know the killer very early on. The suspense comes from catching the killer. Readers of the “In Death” series will very much enjoy this one.

I spent the first 30 pages saying damn you Nora, because I was crying through the trauma of emotions conveyed. I would think she spent hours talking to victims to capture the the real feelings of surviving a mass shooting. Though this is a fictionalized story, I was glad to see an author with a international presence such as Nora Roberts bring it to the fore front. I did yearn for a political statement on it, but that''s not Nora nor the point of the book. I can see others being upset that the events of this book evolve from a mass shooting. However, why not? The antagonist is not your typical suspense novel nutcase. Its not some make serial killer raping and maiming women and that is nice departure from that overused trope. The madness of the antagonist is explored as well, giving us why to all the killing.
Overall I liked it and was not disappointed nor was reminded of other stories written by Nora

Amazing writing as always by Nora! You get so pulled into this story and the characters that you feel like you were there with them during the shooting and in the aftermath. When the book first starts, you think it is only going to be about the mass mall shooting, however, as you get deeper into the book, you realize there is a backstory as sinister as the original plot. The stories of each victim hit you emotionally. The story begins with a mall shooting which takes the lives of over 80 people and injures another 200+. We read accounts from the teenagers who first witnessed and reported the shooting to 911 as well as responding officers to the scene. We then follow those individuals throughout the healing process. The events of that night permeate the lives of each of those victims, even those who were not injured. It is not just a sad sob story however. There is rebirth, love, friendship, and the building of relationships throughout the course of events which really do pull you in. One thing I really liked about the book which I wish more news outlets would apply to real life is how the shooters were not ''glorified'' and given their 15 minutes of fame. We rarely heard much about them throughout the remainder of the book, at least that I remember. Shelter in Place is one of those reads you don''t want to put down because you want to know what happens next. I always love Nora''s writing but this one was exceptional. You will not be disappointed.

I have no words to describe the feeling this book evoked in me. I was smiling at the love and humour between Ci Ci and Reed throughout the book and I just wanted to keep Barney but I also cried and had to read the book through watery eyes because I couldn''t stop reading long enough to wipe my eyes. This book is one of her best books ever and I have read nearly every one. I know it''s expensive for a kindle book but PLEASE don''t let that stop you I think you wIll be transported to another place, not always a nice place where everything is sunny and wonderful but if you remember that a lot of things like this has actually happened and you wondered how does someone cope with life after the event then I think this book must come pretty close to letting you know. Well done Nora your writing just gets better with each novel.

As a die-hard NR fan, this one definitely left me feeling a bit flat... NR''s a go-to for the romance genre, only the romance in this one didn''t even raise its head until 50% into the book, which is when the two main characters MET FOR THE FIRST TIME (apart from him catching a glimpse of her a few years ago - no interaction though). Then, 15% later, they were in love and that was that - it seemed as if the two ''romantic leads'' had a couple of conversations, slept together and then BAM - he loves her (along with pretty much everyone else, apparently). The first half of the book read like a diary of events, from the viewpoints of a few different characters, of what''d happened years before - as well-written as ever, but it added nothing to the story itself. The entire first half of the book could''ve been condensed into the first 10% or so and it would''ve been a big improvement... we might even have had an actual romance then??! But the absolute worst thing about this book (slight SPOILER ALERT here) is the way in which the threat by the baddie was handled by the law enforcement characters. Here we had an already-identified serial killer, systematically going about killing a group of people whose names/addresses were known to the police/FBI, but then virtually nothing was done to warn/protect them?! And the media wasn''t the least bit interested in the murder of a bunch of folk who''d survived something horrific from only a few years before?? The main characters themselves were of the ''oh well, I''m sure I''ll be able to handle it when the very successful serial killer comes after me, as I already know they will'' approach to the whole situation. It was all too ridiculous for words. I think NR has switched publishers in the last couple of years? Has she also changed her proofing/editing team?? If so, I''d strongly recommend she reverts to the team who brought us actual romance from this previously great author...

This is the first Nora Roberts book I have read and it’s not my usual sort of story. I found the writing to be excellent and the characters real and interesting. What starts out as a dreadful shooting in a shopping mall turns out to be a life changing event for everyone involved, in so many different ways. The person responsible for planning the shooting is a tortured soul. Her brother, one of the shooters, dies in the event with the other two shooters. However she isn’t finished with her revenge and she sets about with a long list of people who she feels also deserve to die. She is known to be responsible for the shootings, but finding her isn’t easy. She is a master of disguise and she calmly goes about killing people in her deadly need for revenge. Thrown together as a result of the incident, the two main characters are at the top of her hit list. But they are just as determined as she is to stop her from any more killing. There are some beautiful characters in this book and they far outweigh the evil. It’s a great story with an expected perfect ending.

I enjoyed a couple of Nora Robert''s most recent stand alone novels and thought I would go back and read some of her other older books. This book for me was not as enjoyable has her most recent work. It follows the story of one of the main characters Simone Knox who as a teenager witnesses a mass shooting when she is with her friends at a cinema complex in a large US mall. The book follows her trying to come to terms with dealing with her experience and many times she takes herself back to her grandmother Ci Ci''s house in a small community in Maine to try to heal herself and find her one passion in life. I loved Ci Ci, what a great character for an older woman, making her choices and living her life as she wants without the view that many have that age is a barrier. The other main character is Reed Quartermaine who was also at the mall complex when the mass shooting occurred and the influence of that night led him to become a policeman. What neither of them know is that there is a killer who is tracking those who survived and were in the mall that night and is killing them one by one. When Reed moves to the small community to heal himself from an incident it appears that Simone and Reed are both in terrible danger. Can they stop the killer of will it be too late? This book was focused on many themes, the impact of such a terrible incident on peoples lives, family issues, love and revenge. I gave this book a 4 star. I enjoyed the setting of the small Maine coastal town and its way of life and liked both main characters but there was less romance in this one for me than there usually is in this authors work and I was slightly disappointed. A great read if you like this author, if your interested in a killer looking to take revenge with a tiny bit of romance added in there too then I would recommend this book.
