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.

A terrific story! I couldn't put it down.it had me guepssing to the end...A nice romance too. Slow and charming just like I picture "The old south". I highly recommend this book!
I love to listen and read books. Harry Bosch is my number one. I'm a wannabe detective. I love Audible!
This is by far among the best. I gave it a 10 for storyline and the narration was EXCELLENT!
Tucker of course. His southern drawl and his laid back attitude kept me drawn in and wanting more. Not that the other characters were mediocre, they all could stand on their own merit.
His ability to capture that laid back southern accent, with it's cadence and inflection. I could listen to him all day, which I did at work! I felt like I was a fly on the wall in the story thanks to his outstanding narration. Kudos to Mr. Stechschulte
Ok I liked them all, Della with her sternness, Caroline with her "Yankee" lol! properness, Cy the kid fearful of his dad, Ms Josie.... hmmm what a twist, Buck and the pompous FBI agent, and Tucker the loverboy, etc etc. They were great and well developed.Billy T, Junior, Cousin Lulu, etc etc.
Of course Austin and his "tool of Satan" This was worthy of an award!!
Great book, I would recommend taking a listen and sit back with your mint julep, the South is back with a vengeance.
It was a little slow starting but by the end of the first chapter I was hooked.
The Southern smarts, sarcasm and humor.
Tucker, Della and Lulu
Couldn't put it down
I am addicted to listening!!!
I enjoyed his performance of this book....
I wouldn't it is great!
Nora did a wonderful job... I loved the book, it kept you going with romance, mystery, until the very end with a great twist! I wish there was follow up to this book! Over all I totally enjoyed the story line.
than the first listen. a good story with quite a lot of characters each well defined and brought to life by Tom Stechschulte. Love the conversations this book is made of,pretty sure I will listen to it several times more.
The performance of Tom Stechschulte as the charming Southern playboy, Tucker Longstreet is superb and elevates the romantic suspense story incalculably!
I loved this book. The narrator made this story even better as he played the different characters. I'm sure many of you have listened to boy meets girl and she resists love stories. This is so much more than that. The mystery of who done it and how she made these characters come to life through this wonderful Narrator made this book so much better. I just loved this one.
I love listening to audibles !
I truely enjoyed this story
I have listened to it 3 or 4 times it's one of nora Roberts best
I love books!
This was my second Nora Roberts' book, I got it in an audible three for two book sale. I really enjoyed the first one, "Witness", and thought I'd give her another go. I read somewhere that the author's books are steamy romance with chilling suspense, I'd say that was accurate for this book although the romance side didn't really dominate. I often state I want to be entertained by books and this story was that. It was set in NW Mississippi's delta region. The two protagonists were a Southern gentleman and a Philadelphia blue blood. It was kind of a strange mix of characters but it didn't detract from the suspense side. This book was written twenty years ago and is one of many the author has written. I did try and figure out who the bad guy was in the story but the author didn't give it away until the end.
