I rarely give a 5 star rating but Carnal Innocence was outstanding from the storyline and characters to the fantastic narration. I was pulled into the story from the beginning and my interest was held all the way through. I loved the depth of the characters. Just when I thought I had it all figured out the story took a twist I didn't expect. Great job Nora Roberts!
a different narrator would have allowed you to at least get into the story. however, the part of the story that i listened to was stereotypical and i didn'[t really invest in the characters. not at all like Nora Roberts other books where I love the characters and really care about them
too stereotyped-i could give the dialogue before i heard it
just a straight read would have been better than destroying the Southern accents.
i'm turning this book back in.
The story was a very good combination of mystery and romance as per usual for Nora Roberts. I liked the suspense. I honestly did not figure it out until close to the end. The narration was excellent - the separation of characters was wonderful. I found myself using that southern drawl after listening to him. Very well done. I was sad when it was over because I enjoyed it so much.
Audible Addict. I listen to 2-3 books a week, depending on my schedule. I've been a member since 2008 and feel like I have a personal relationship with my I-Pod! I'm an ecclectic reader but have been hooked on "romance" (I hate that term) and paranormal books lately.
Tom Stechschulte's voice makes this audio book. His gravelly voice is perfect for the dissolute Tucker Longstreet. A very enjoyable cast of characters and a bit of a surprise ending.
After this story kept popping up on my "you might enjoy this book" list I decided to give it a try, and it just confirmed that Audible needs new a recommendation algorhythm. I disliked all of the characters, found the narration to be uneven, and even on 2x fast forward thought the book dragged and dragged. Save the credit and try something else. I will be hard pressed to listen to another Nora Roberts book after this experience.
Love to exercise while listening
The story was great. It felt real unlike some of my prior books. I found myself caught up in the story. The people. I laughed a lot and the main characters were so kind and entertaining.
I wish I could live in this town with these people. The gossip, the stories, the simple living. Loved it all.
No, but he has been my favorite narrator so far.
Can't wait to get more books from this auther and narrator.
Characters were very described.
Yes, I would have listed to this book in one sitting.

Unlike what the title might make you think - its not the typical tedious "mommy porn" romance novels as so many romance books are. This book is a unrepentant romance novel, but it also has much more interesting characters (well most, sadly not all), and a bit more dignity than a lot of its genre.
This is a good little book. It's a basic, somewhat predictable romance (sorry to say I had it all figured out in the first 15 minutes)- but its still fun and very entertaining with captivating characters that elevate this book above the normal. Its not great - but its definitely better than average and worth the read if you're looking for a romance story set in a dark murder mystery and rural southern American intrigue.
Yes. I enjoyed it.
I love her books.
Performance was good.
Love all Nora Ross books.
This book kept my interest from the beginning and held it to the end. I could not figure out who the serial killer was even though there was a small pool to choose from. Casual Innocence is a good read that you won't regret purchasing.
