Publisher's Summary

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.

    Would you listen to Carnal Innocence again? Why?

    Yes, I loved the characters and they reminded me of folks in my own small rural town


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Carnal Innocence?

    When Tucker made love to Caroline in that slow seductive tone only a southern gentlemen can do.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is like Butter!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Cy realized that he was not to blame for his father's death

    One of the best Nora Roberts books so far. Im off to find another.

    Story
    "One of Her Best - Narration - SUPERB!!!"

    In CARNAL INNOCENCE author Nora Roberts has created a mesmerizing tale of madness, murder, and love in a small southern town of the bayou. Put into play is Caroline Waverly, a beautiful world renowned concert violinist who is still fragile from both a public breakup and private breakdown after witnessing her lover with another. Caroline, has left the concert circuit escaping to her late grandmother’s home in Innocence, Mississippi. However instead of the peace and tranquility she expected, she found a town reeling from two vicious and heinous murders. And, if that weren’t enough Caroline discovers a third victim on her property.

    Enter Caroline’s devastatingly handsome bad-boy neighbor - Tucker Longstreet. Big, beautiful with a devilish grin and the sexiest southern drawl ever. But for some reason, Tucker makes Caroline feel safe even though his reputation for breaking hearts has put him at the top of the suspect list, seeing as how he was connected to each of the murdered women.

    *** Lordy, lordy, but I have listened to Tom Stechschulte before and I have to say that NO ONE does sexy Southern drawls like Mr. Stechschulte! He is a master of making a written hero pop to life as one very SEXY heart throb - just by hearing that rich southern interpretation. Wow! And let me also say that the sensuality both actual and implied was steaming all the way through to the very end!

    Now mix that with exquisite storytelling by Nora Roberts and you have a perfect combination that will force you to keep listening way into the middle of the night and then turning it back on as soon as you wake up! Be it children, heroes or heroines, pets, even nasty villains - Ms. Roberts writes the books that grab you and simply won’t let you go. Loved every minute of this audiobook, the outstanding performance of Mr. Stechschulte and the entire cast of characters who made this ‘very hard to put down’ and immensely satisfying book!

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I usually like Nora Roberts books. I found this one objectionable. I used to recommend her as a a quick, easy read. I won;t be doing that any more I would be embarrassed if my friends thought I liked this book.

    "easy listen"

    It took me awhile to get into the story. Once I did, it was difficult to stop. I enjoyed the narrator. He did well, giving each character a "voice " of their own. The story itself kept you guessing. Had me laughing a bit, too!

    "Love Me some Tucker! MmmMmm"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It took me a minute to get into this book, but once I did I couldn't wait to continue it. It was fun and thrilling and kept you on the edge, throwing doubt and suspicion throughout the book.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Author was amazing with all the different characters he had to become. My favorite was Tucker, you fell in love with his laid back, never in a hurry attitude. He melted my heart with the love for his family and eventually Caroline.


    Any additional comments?

    I was a little disappointed with the abrupt ending to the book, I would of maybe liked and epilogue to know a little more what happened with everyone, it felt incomplete. I will miss Tuckers voice lulling me to sleep every night.
