Book Review: SHELTER IN PLACE by Nora Roberts


2021 Book 2: SHELTER IN PLACE by @norarobertsauthor.⠀

I’ll cut to the chase…I loved this book. And for a number of reasons. ⠀

Possibly foremost, one of the supporting characters, CiCi Lennon, was the absolute SUM of my Grama and my dear friend, Emily. To witness CiCi’s relationship with and love for and influence on her granddaughter, Simone (MC), was so life-giving. My heart was in stitches probably beyond the author’s hope. ⠀

Second, I’m a sucker for the creative artist + man in uniform combo. The dynamic between Simone and Reed is palpable, yet understated. I wanted even more. Reed is the unflappable yet spunky, solid, driven, protective type who balances the CiCi + Simone artistic, feminine energy so well. While also playing into their sass. Ah, I just loved these three together. ⠀

And finally, I found the plot engaging, well-written, and just unpredictable enough to keep me reading. I like some thriller/suspense with my romance (and some romance with my thriller/suspense). And the darkness explored in Patricia’s character hit the spot. Y’all know I prefer my fiction dark (and steamy). ⠀

Overall rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 (4.5/5)
