From Nora Roberts comes the #1 New York Times bestseller Shelter in Place (June 2018)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.

    This is the best book to come from Ms. Roberts in some time. It takes us back to her books such as Carolina Moon (just to name one). The tragedy that occurs in this story makes you feel like you’re in the middle of this horrific event. Yet, what arises out of it is beautifully written. Well, it’s the end of September 2018. I just finished reading this fabulous book, and it still stands up as one of my most favorite books I have ever read. I love these quirky and loving characters, most particularly the indomitable CiCi. Even Barney the beloved dog survived his own tragedy to become a loving sweet pooch! Thanks Nora - Cindy D. It’s a great read - congratulations to Ms. Roberts on a spellbinding book! Cindy Demme

    Nora Roberts never fails to keep her readers glued to her books. Shelter in Place is just the next one in a series of winners. I absolutely could not put this book down. Luckily I have a very understanding husband that forgives me burning dinners, not listening and staying up late reading my favorite authors books! Thanks Nora. Judy Podkranic

    Ms Roberts never disappoints. I’ve probably read all of her novels, some multiple times. Her characters are so rich and three dimensional , you could swear you know them, or want to. Her story telling is unsurpassed . I look forward to a new book but then I am so let down when I’m done ( usually within 24 hrs, because I can’t put it down!) I don’t want her stories to end ! She draws you in, gets you hooked. I absolutely love the way she writes! Thank you again . Sincerely a devoted fan, Kathleen Pfanner

    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!

    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. ❤️
