Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville's elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton.

Great, infuriating read

I really liked the format of this book - jumping between various PoVs. While some of the characters seemed a little too "woke"(I felt like they were being a little too self-aware at times), the subject matter and how the author treated it was all pitch perfect. I was initially expecting something completely different from the description, but was pleasantly surprised(and completely enraged) as the story unfolded.
Shelter in Place
- Auteur(s): Nora Roberts
- Narrateur(s): January LaVoy
- Durée: 15 h et 22 min
- Version intégrale
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. Then the shooters arrived. The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. 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.

Despite being full of cliches and coincidences that make events seem a little too contrived, I really enjoyed listening to Shelter in Place. The early depiction of the mass shooting mostly seemed real, though, thinking back on how everything unfolded left me with a few lingering questions that I only had minimal issues putting aside. The rest of the story was largely predictable, but written and performed well enough to keep me engaged with the characters.
