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.

I came across this book via the daily deal. I had never read any of Nora Roberts previously and so did not know what to expect, but it was good. The story bowls along with interesting twists. It was a mixture of thriller and romance which I have not encountered before. Well worth a listen.

Brilliantly read but the story was so far fetched as to be unbelievable. Such a shame as the start was promising.

I enjoyed the story and pace of this book, but the ending was so sad. I found myself shouting out loud as the book came to its climax.
Well worth a read.

Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes. Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered. Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so desperately needed. And that it was God’s idea for Mickie Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado, uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and girls. Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design.

I bought this book as l have enjoyed other books by this author but oh dear this one was really poor.
The storyline was weak and the ending predictable. Sorry to be so negative 👎
