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 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.… (más)

You guys. This book. This amazing and wonderful book. I thought that The Witness was her best book but I think Shelter in Place is even better. The book starts in the summer of 2005 with a mass shooting in a shopping mall and takes us through the next several years as we catch up with some of the victims and their families. What makes this book different from other Nora stories is that she flat out tells us who the villain is and shows us things from that perspective. I can't remember her doing this before. Because of this POV, the book has an extra depth that I don't think it would have otherwise.

From word one, I was hooked. I thought about this book while I was cooking dinner and eating dinner and doing other various things around the house. I could not stop thinking about this book and even now that I'm done with it, it is still very much in the forefront of my mind. The relationships, the emotions, the small town setting; it all comes together seamlessly and brilliantly. Well done, Nora.

Make time to read this one if it's on your list. Make sure you don't have anything going on for a while because it will suck you in and not let go. ( )

I've been thinking this book over for about a week now, and I'm still not completely sure of how I feel about it. This is one of the most complicated books I've ever read. The amount of thought and detail that went into every single aspect of this book is mind-blowing. It did take me a while to get through it, but that was completely my fault and had nothing to do with the book itself.

This was my first book by Nora Roberts, and I believe I picked the perfect book to start out with. When I was at Walmart, I noticed this cover almost immediately. I love anything that focuses on such serious and important topics, so I ultimately chose this one and my expectations were extremely high. She surpassed the expectations I had.

The storyline itself - mass shooting leading to a serial killing - was what completely sold me on this book, and it did not disappoint. The first few pages focused on the shooting, which was described in such detail I had to take a break for a couple hours before continuing. The entire shooting was completely heartbreaking and eye-opening. I'm not sure I'll be visiting either a mall nor movie theatre - especially one in a mall - for quite a while. The rest of part one was about the healing of those affected in the shooting, which again, was rather heartbreaking. Nora Roberts truly captured what trauma feels like and how it can change a person.

The second part was focused on the years following the shooting and the time leading up to the string of murders. The ability of the murderer did seem a little too strong, however, it also felt extremely possible; psychopaths and sociopaths are smart and plan things out in so much depth and detail it's a bit terrifying. This is also when the romance started.

The third part focused more on the relationship and downfall of the murderer. This part held my attention, and I could hardly put it down once I reached part three. I personally found it interesting to watch the murderer slowly lose control and patience, which leads to being caught.

The characters were very complex, had a lot of depth that I wasn't really expecting. I loved Reed and Cici so much. Cici reminded me a lot of my mom, and her relationship with Simone reminded me of ours. The dedication and love they put into their careers and relationships was beautiful, and the entire time the story was focused on one of them, I was just in awe.

Simone was also an amazing character, and I found her personal growth inspiring. I'm a sucker for a female MC who can bring herself out of struggling and completely strive, and that's exactly what Simone was. She went through pure hell, yet she still ended up in a healthy relationship and with a healthy coping mechanism.

As for the main romance of the book, I found it both cute and also annoying. Reed joking about running away with Cici started out as funny, but over the course of their relationship, it got kind of annoying. I also thought it was a predictable relationship. From the second the book started, I sort of assumed who the relationship mentioned on the back of the book would be between, and to my disappointment, I was correct. There were times when I loved their relationship, though; they could be pretty cute together.

Overall, I really did love this book. The only thing keeping it from being a five star book is the relationship. Otherwise, it's one of the best thrillers I've read. If the subject of mass shootings and serial murders don't trigger you, I highly suggest reading this book.

Trigger Warnings: This book contains/mentions mass shootings, murder, sexual scenes, and trauma. ( )

I love Roberts who has written some of my favorite romance novels and series. This offering though seemed different - less like a romance and more just a novel. The story feels like it centers more on Reed than on Simone or their romance together. In fact, the character I feel I know the most about is Simone's grandmother CiCi; we certainly get more of her family backstory than we do for either Reed or Simone. The exploration of the impact of a mass shooting is interesting, though I was surprised we didn't get more about some other characters (such as Brady for example). Overall it was a good read, but not at all what I expected from a Nora Roberts book. Recommend for the story but be forewarned that this isn't really a traditional romance novel. ( )

At a mall outside Portland, Maine, three teenagers came in shooting. Many people were killed or injured. The police killed the shooters. Three teenagers, friends Simone and MI, along with Reed Quartermaine, survived. Reed became a police chief of a small island near Portland, and Simone a great sculptor. MI became a doctor. Many years later, Patricia, the sister of one on the shooters emerges to seek revenge for the death of her brother. It turns out that she was the one who planned the attack on the mall.
She begins to kill anyone who gained fame or notoriety from the shooting, now several years ago. Reed and Simone have fallen in love and they know that Patricia will come after them too. There are two stories that run simultaneously. The love story of Reed and Simone, and the saga of Patricia's kills.
I liked this book which meshed the two stories together in a good way. The reader can enjoy the romance but at the same time, be pulled into the mystery and suspense of the crimes of Patricia. The reader anticipates her coming after Reed and Simone and is kept on edge about when and how. This thriller is fast paced and hard to put down. ( )

Yes another Nora Roberts books. These are stressful times and I need a break! This is a good one...the characters are some of her best (especially CiCi Lennon), and I love the way the individual characters' stories come together so smoothly about halfway through. ( )
