Publisher Description

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.

Read, grieve, heal

For someone to give this story a poor review, based solely on the subject matter, is closed minded and just dumb. Books have been written about every facet of the good and evil humans enact upon each other and will continue to do so. Nora Roberts has done what she does best- taken us into the depths of the fear, heartbreak and evil of an act of mass murder and imagined how those who come out the other side might survive, heal and ultimately thrive despite the trauma they have experienced.
As an educator, I am mad, scared and frankly, hopeless, that our American society will change- change gun ownership/licensing laws, change our deeply flawed medical system to help those with mental health deficits- to eradicate the horror of these escalating acts. But I appreciate Mrs. Roberts using her talents to weave an arc, with heart, compassion and insight, and share some healing. I want to hug a LEO, adopt a (yet another!) dog, hang out on the New England Coast and get my art on. 5 stars for a summer read.

A book you will not be able to put down.

I have to say that the beginning of the book was so raw I had to put it down for a few weeks. However, when I picked it up again, I could not put it down! It is incredible!
