Shelter in Place Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Shelter in Place is a great book. Our editors rated it with a top 5 stars.

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

User reviews about the book

  • Hard to start but was a good book!

    By Purplebaby1216
    This was hard for me to start, and I almost did not because of the current situations in our country, but I did and it was a very good book!

    Great read! Suspenseful, romantic, and fast paced. Kept me reading for hours.
  • Grab a box of Kleenex!

    Oh my gosh! I cried, laughed, cried some more, laughed some more. I couldn't put this book down. I NEEDED to know what would happen next. It hits straight to your heart, in this particular time, when senseless shootings are becoming the "new normal". And isn't that a sad commentary on the times we're living in? Lord, help us. You're the only one who can. ❤️

    This is Nora Roberts best book yet. I so wanted to find out what happened, but also did not want the story to end.
  • Seriously?

    By Jdellar622
    It is very clear from the beginning when you buy this book what the subject matter is. So to later then be offended by the subject matter is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve read two reviews, both were “offended“, and yet they read the blurb of what the book was about and then bought it. You have to be a special kind of moron to be upset about the subject matter when you knew what it was going into the book. If you don’t like the subject matter, you simply don’t purchase the book.

    This book has to be one of her best books. I was captured in the story from beginning to end. A book I could not put down.
  • It was okay but kinda corny

    By hdusshhxshus
    Lots of great reviews and it was an okay read but I found myself doing so many eye rolls while reading it. Kinda corny. I was ready finish it but I forced myself to finish it. It was that kind of book.

    I have read all of Nora Roberts books including those written as JD Robb. Love all of her writing but this book was fantastic! Hoping for a sequel. Please keep writing as fast as you can! Outstanding book!

    The readers that were un happy with this book or offended missed the real story. Missed the real love that evolved out of Tragedy. This is a well written book that makes you aware, makes you think, what would I do? The fear of the stalker is so real the bonds of the survivors so strong. The book is an emotional journey not to be taken lightly. Nora Roberts is a thought provoking storyteller. Well done!
