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...

    Shelter in Place 8 minutes - a mass shooting - a physical and emotional aftermath that leaves countless lives changed forever This was a gut wrenching book to read in light of the mass shootings we have endured but I found it well written. Roberts' focus wasn't solely on the shootin...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Nora Roberts takes a very sad and serious theme in Shelter in Place and turns it into a gripping and totally enthralling story. The book starts with a shooting in a cinema and Mall when three young men kill multiple people and themselves. This part of the book is traumatic and very ...

    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 ...

    Just when I think I know exactly what I'm getting into, Ms. Roberts regales with something entirely unexpected and creepy-current. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    5 stars.????? My first Nora Roberts book and I feel like I struck gold with this recent release. I had borrowed this book from the library after patiently waiting my turn, hold no. 68 on 20 copies. It was so worth the wait. This story not only jumped off the pages bu...

    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...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com 3.5 stars My book club read this month is Shelter in Place, the latest standalone novel by Norah Roberts, an author that does not need any introduction. Her worldwide appeal and long list of popular book series, mostly of the romance fare, has s...

    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 ...

    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...

    I enjoyed this one even with the difficult story line. When picking it up I wondered how the story would affect me. Sadly this story centers around a tragic and senseless event that happens one too many times in this world. But Nora Roberts took care with how this story unfolde...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Had a longer review done but deleted it. It deals with a delicate subject matter ... I enjoyed the book. It flowed really well. There were no real "who dunnit" moments or shock moments. You sort of knew what was going to happen most of the way throughout the book. Loved the setti...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Had a longer review done but deleted it. It deals with a delicate subject matter ... I enjoyed the book. It flowed really well. There were no real "who dunnit" moments or shock moments. You sort of knew what was going to happen most of the way throughout the book. Loved the setti...

    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...

    Nora Roberts takes a very sad and serious theme in Shelter in Place and turns it into a gripping and totally enthralling story. The book starts with a shooting in a cinema and Mall when three young men kill multiple people and themselves. This part of the book is traumatic and very ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    I enjoyed this one even with the difficult story line. When picking it up I wondered how the story would affect me. Sadly this story centers around a tragic and senseless event that happens one too many times in this world. But Nora Roberts took care with how this story unfolde...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Nora Roberts takes a very sad and serious theme in Shelter in Place and turns it into a gripping and totally enthralling story. The book starts with a shooting in a cinema and Mall when three young men kill multiple people and themselves. This part of the book is traumatic and very ...

    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 ...

    Just when I think I know exactly what I'm getting into, Ms. Roberts regales with something entirely unexpected and creepy-current. ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    5 stars.????? My first Nora Roberts book and I feel like I struck gold with this recent release. I had borrowed this book from the library after patiently waiting my turn, hold no. 68 on 20 copies. It was so worth the wait. This story not only jumped off the pages bu...

    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...

    *https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com 3.5 stars My book club read this month is Shelter in Place, the latest standalone novel by Norah Roberts, an author that does not need any introduction. Her worldwide appeal and long list of popular book series, mostly of the romance fare, has s...

    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 ...

    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...

    I enjoyed this one even with the difficult story line. When picking it up I wondered how the story would affect me. Sadly this story centers around a tragic and senseless event that happens one too many times in this world. But Nora Roberts took care with how this story unfolde...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Had a longer review done but deleted it. It deals with a delicate subject matter ... I enjoyed the book. It flowed really well. There were no real "who dunnit" moments or shock moments. You sort of knew what was going to happen most of the way throughout the book. Loved the setti...

    4.5 Surviving Stars I Honestly struggled with how to review this one - with all the mass shootings in our conflicted society today, which seem to be happening in alarming frequency, I knew going in it would have to take a talented author to tackle a subject that many would find ta...

    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 ...

    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...
