Review Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts

From Nora Roberts, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Year One (December 2017), comes Shelter in Placea 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 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 her emotions 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.

Nancy S.:
This is perhaps the most intricately plotted books I’ve ever read by Nora Roberts. She developed the characters fully and kept the suspense and excitement running until the end.
Georgia Mom of 2:
 I could not put this book down ( had to at times because … life). I always love reading Nora Roberts books – I believe I’ve read them all and re read many but this book had it all. I was flat out bawling after the first few chapters; there were also many smiles and laughs along the way. I felt like I really came to know the characters thru the span of years and I loved seeing them grow up and find their way in life after such a tragic event. Nora did an amazing job of showing the reader how this one act of horrific violence shaped the lives of the survivors and molded them into the people they were meant to be.
Nora at her best.I was hooked from the first page. Heartwrenching and heartwarming at the same time.characters were great and Barney was Awesome. Thank you Nora
