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.

Didn't realize it was 21 years old when purchased - my mistake, I did not recognize the title. Once I began to listen to it, I realized I'd read it back when I used to read books 15 years ago - frustrated I wasted my money on book I'd already read.
I like Nora Roberts, but I've already read her books that were written 10 years ago or more. I definitely like her newer works more.
Nora Roberts writes some humdingers of novels and this is another one.
At the beginning of most that I have read I get a moment where I am dubious that I am going to enjoy it. This novel gave me a feeling where I was going to roll my eyes soon. But, every single time, I get caught up in her magic and I am hooked to the end.
One thing Mrs Roberts does that many authors could emulate is that she has MULTPLE stories going on at the same time that start and finish at veritable times. The reader never gets bored with so many balls in the air. This is like four books for the price of one.
Carnal Innocence involves a wealthy family in a small Mississippi town. Young single women are being brutally murdered. Believe it or not, there is a love story going on too and several interventions. It all works.
I didn't want this over and I think I said after reading Witness, I would love if these characters became a series.
Well I am not sure if it was the reader who was trying to get into character but listening to someone talk when they are moving spit around in their mouth is very nasty. I couldn't handle the sound he was making while he was reading. It drove me crazy.
Not as good
yes but you have to get past the sound of the reader
The southern accents were so bad that I could not even finish, and I love Nora Roberts. I decided to read the book instead.
The accents were way over the top, and I have lived in several areas of the south.
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.
It is a good read, I am a fan of Nora Roberts. The only thing that was a tad disappointing was the predictable use of stereotypical behaviors in the characters.
Profesionl, hard working woman who travels weekly, enjoys life. My best Friends are Michael and Scooter. Nonfiction books are the best!
Fantastic book, read beautifully, kept my attention to the wonderful end. Dont pass this book up.
Nora Roberts writes another great book. I think the narrator took away from the book. I almost stopped listening multiple times because the narrator's voice was like nails on a chalk board. If you can get past the narrator, I think you will enjoy the book!
