I would listen to this book again after some time has passed so I could be surprised by some of the events again.
Tucker, because he was so smooth and easy going. Even when he was upset he was still cool.
His southern drawl really pulled you into the story.
The acceptance and compassion that was showed by Tucker towards the little boy.
I've read and listened to this book multiple times. The story is layered, with small town dynamics and a well plotted mystery, and the audio interpretation is spot on. One of my favorites.
The narration is the best I ever listen and enjoyed. Mr Stechshulte is remarkable identifying each character. I am in love with Tucker! The story line is one of the best I listen to in a long time. I couldn't stop listening. You will love the southern manner and characters.
I picked this one up on sale. I figured Nora Roberts is a sure bet, and she did not disappoint. I loved the narrator, he did a smooth southern drawl and created the appeal of the hero. His female voices were ok too. The story was kind of long, but well worth it for the surprise ending. Definitely an exciting read! I would recommend it.
I have always been a fan of Nora Roberts mysteries. However, the last few have more or less followed the same predictable formula. They are good for listening on the long commute and are entertaining though.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
It is near the top in the romance/mystery/suspense
With Carnal Innocence, she creates a gripping tale of murder, infatuation, and true love in a small southern town. After beautiful concert violinist Caroline Waverly breaks up with her conductor and lover Luis, she escapes to her late grandmother’s home in Innocence, Mississippi. Instead of peace and tranquility, however, she finds the town torn with suspicion over two brutal murders. When she discovers a third victim in the murky waters behind her house, she turns to her dangerously handsome neighbor, Tucker Longstreet, for protection. But Tucker has a reputation for breaking hearts - even worse, the police count him their number one suspect.
You’ll want to lean back in your easy chair and let Nora Robert’s steamy prose and Tom Stechschulte’s stirring interpretation transport you to Innocence where the nights are filled with promise and secrets are hard to keep.
When the serial killer is revealed! What, who, ah-ha!
Tucker Longstreet-perfection! Yum!
This is a fantastic read-full of twists and turns....a lot of character (LOVE the 'crazy', old aunt). The descriptions of the county fair are perfect. I really enjoyed Tucker's relations with every other character-not just Caroline; the other main character.
I chuckled in parts but mostly it was really intense.
NOTE: Just a bit of strong language and some descriptions of murder scenes/victims. Nothing too bad
