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.

The story line was not Nora Roberts strongest. I would title this as a murder mystery, not a romance. The romance seemed a little messily thrown together, seemingly last minute afterthoughts. I did like the twist at the end. The reader did an EXCELLENT job at portraying the characters and capturing the southern charm/accent that was needed for Innocence. Overall, in my opinion: kinda a weak one on NR's part, made better by the speaker.
I thought the narrator did an exceptional job. all the different voices were very believable from male to female. this story was interesting throughout and the ending was a complete shocker
Nora and Tom made a perfect pair. Great murder mystery with Southern charm, a great lesson in family values and lots of love and romance. Absolutely worth the credit!
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
This was a three and a half star southern mystery that was punched up to a four star by Tom Stechshulte's narration. Nora did a wonderful job making the foliage and surroundings so real that I felt like I was there along with the characters. The murder mystery was a pretty good Southern drama with original characters mixed with some romance and a bit of comic relief.
