Publisher's Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts 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 the video-game store tending 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, hopelessly 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.

Story is ok, performance good.

But I was drifting off listening to this one as it wasn’t holding my interest. Characters are nauseatingly perfect, not my cup of tea.

One of her better books

Typical Nora but not too much romance just enough. More of a thriller. I liked better than her last few. Up there with Witness.

Captivating!

I purchased this audible book on a quick whim as I boarded a plane for vacation realizing I only had non-fiction books on my phone. It was a suggested new release title and it did not disappoint!!! Every moment I could take, i was listening to the book. It definitely kept my attention and it was very well written!! I’ve read a few other Nora Roberts books but I can say that this is my favorite!
Is it weird that I kinda “miss” CC and wish she was a real life person?! Haha (once you listen to the book, you’ll understand 😉)

A great story line.

The title had me worried that it would be to dark of a story at this time in our world. It was a great read with lots of depth and great interaction. Tragedy can lead to growth and different pathways. I will re-listen to see what I missed the first time through.

The Nora I love is back!!

The last few Nora Roberts were not what I like to read so, I didn’t. I believe Nora stated if the book is something you don’t like, don’t read it—so I didn’t. It was hard! I missed Nora.

But the Nora I love is back with “Shelter in Place!”
This book is traditional Nora Roberts! No end of the world, no magic, just a great romantic suspense! The first part with shooting up the mall and movie theater was hard to read; but so much will be lost if you skip it. That being said: I highly recommend this book. It will be a book that I will be listening to again and again!!

was really surprised

stopped buying Nora Roberts' books awhile ago because they were all too uniform and cookie cutter with just character names being different. This still was a bit in the too familiar but it was also unique and I listened in one day. I like how she used all these shootings and incorporated them into a story. Refreshing new story that is similar in some elements to the Three Sisters Island Trilogy which is my favorite work by her (Dance Upon the Air, Heaven and Earth and Face the Fire). Get this book!

Really enjoyed this book! The story is original and moves quickly. I didn't even mind the cheezy sex scenes as there wasn't too many. Narration was excellent. Solid 5 stars from a non Nora Roberts fan.

AMAZING NOVEL

I am in awe of this story. I have read or listened to nearly all Roberts’ books and this one is perhaps the best one. It is so well-crafted. A brilliant look at a tragic theme. I cried, I cheered. I was obsessed. Thank you for writing this.

Easily my newest Nora Robert's fave!!

LOVED. THIS. STORY. Espy with everything going on in America today. I honestly haven't listened to a NR book since The Witness (my previous NR fave), but this one definitely reminded me of how much I love her! The character development was great with every character, all the way down to the dog! Cici and Reed were def my faves tho. The way he always joked about the 2 of them getting together if she ever gave him a chance made me laugh everytime. Great work Nora!!

Mixed Feelings

First of all, the narrator was excellent! The story was pretty good, but it did drag at times. I have rather mixed feelings about it. Not a story I’d want to listen to again.

As ever, brilliant!

You know what you are going to get with Nora!
And here she delivers an indictment of the evil that flourishes in some people and how unfettered access to guns can tear so many lives apart.

Got to love Nora!

Nora Roberts departure from norm

With this and the Chronicles of the One, Roberts is taking her writing in a very different direction. I'm not sure I like it.

Another great story from Nora Roberts. Brilliantly read by Ms LaVoy. Great characters, a moving and well thought out plot and as always when you finish a Roberts book a feeling of sadness that it’s finished.... Let’s have another one soon please!!

A love story with a difference

I enjoyed this book about a tangle of people after a life changing event.
It was easy to listen to albeit a bit predictable.
