    New York Times best-selling novelist Nora Roberts captivates millions of fans with her provocative blend of scorching passion and chilling 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.

    Story

    I HATED the drawl the narrator used. I am from the South and I know that our accent can be somewhat drawn out, but as I listened to this I was insulted. In my opinion the narrator made the men in the story sound DUMB, even the ones like Tucker and Burke who were not protrayed as dumb. Now the boys that burned the cross in the black man's yard.. yes, ignorance was suppose to be protrayed, but retarded or mentally challenged is what came to my mind when he spoke for them. I LOVED the story/book. I have read the book and also watched the movie. I did not take any offence to the book when reading it. I was somewhat of a critic when watching the movie as I feel actors have a hard time getting that southern drawl out correctly, but I take that in stride. But this narrator offended me.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    AWESOME. Loved the book, reading it and listening to it. Great story and being that I live near Jackson, Ms, it hit close to home. I was so afraid that this was going to be a racist book and I guess in a way it could be called that. But the author did such a good job, in my opinion, not to offend any race. I think she spoke the way it was back then.

    The police are convinced that Julia Ransom was guilty of the brutal murder of her husband, renowned psychic August Ransom. But after six months of investigation and media frenzy, she is free of their scrutiny, because of the lack of evidence. One afternoon she walks from her Pacific Heights home to Fisherman's Wharf, alone, unwatched - and, she realizes, happy. But not for long.

    Overall

    As always Catherine Coulter did a wonderful job with her writing. The book grabbed my attention from the start and held it all the way through. I feel like I know her characters... Dillon and Sherlock and the other FBI agents. Thouroughly enjoyed the book!
