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. 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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, a great summer read.
The authentic sound of southern charm both in vernacular and narrator.
First time listening to Tom Stechshulte
As ALL of Nora Robert's books it was a good one. Ilike her because there is mystery, & some romance involved. My kind of book.
No one - the story was ok if it would have been a short story in a magazine instead of a 3 disc book. Very boring.
Not have written it.
Characters were actually good there wasn't enough story.
I thought this would be a typical romance/mystery novel - nice "bubble gum for my brain and a fairly good beach read." However it was more. I do not want to spoil the surprises, so I will not say more. I really enjoyed the characters and the surprises.
I liked too many to pick just one.
It was a perfect name.
The reader's accent did not sound like any Mississippi accent I have ever heard. I live in New Orleans, next door to mississippi. It was a little annoying at first, but I got used to it and it grew on me. I wonder how it would have sounded without the accent. He had a good expressive voice.
This one took about four chapters to set the 'hook' in me! But, once there, can't put it down or turn it off. Great mystery, again! She has a style all her own!
In this first part....the murder in the swamp!
Tucker and Caroline enjoying the sunset on the back porch of his home.
Tucker, Caroline and Useless...my favorites!!!

Nora Roberts has out done herself, I always knew she was a great author, but this book kept me on the end of my seat...... The narrater was great and easy to listen too.... 5 Stars!!!! The ending was a surprize, but it was also great to know the two main characters were going to stay together... I look forward to Ms Roberts next book!!! Thank you Nora for your wonderful insight to romance.......
This book was like a terrible accident that I couldn't take my eyes away. I didn't like what I was seeing but I couldn't look away. A bit gruesome for me.
Mind boggling fun
Tucker was full of surprise
The title fits
This was a great mystery until the end
This isn't the type of book I normally listen to. After the first chapter I sucked right in to the back waters of Mississippi. The characters came to life for me and I found myself thinking about them while I wasn't listening to the book. I hope that anyone listening to this book enjoys it as much as I did. Its a thrilling old fashion murder mystery.
It's probably in the top 10
I liked when Caroline came into the library and discovered there was more to Tucker than she'd first thought.
I love love love Tucker's voice. It's entirely possible it's the sexiest voice I've ever heard.
Tucker, partly just to listen to him talk, and partly because of his easy-going intelligence.
My second Nora Roberts listen. Even though I had figured out who the killer was, I'm a fan.
