As always, when I read a Nora Roberts novel, I say this one is the best. I did it again when I finished "Shelter In Place". It grabbed me from the first page and kept me until I finished it today. It came to life and I 'watched' as all the events took place. It was scary because our world has become too much like this scenario. And I cried at the end. Nora Roberts is the best and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being transported to another place for a time.
