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.

I've suffered through my LAST Nora Roberts book!
I've never been so put off by a book before. Apparently Ms Roberts lost command of the English language and could only come up with "G-D" to express herself. Or perhaps she thinks that's all Southern men know how to say? I won't be wasting my cash on her trash again.
Top 5! I had just listened to The Witness and thought no way can I find another as good. Totally different books with totally different narrators and both excellent audibles. I was so thrilled with Tom Stechschulte's performance.
I adored all of the characters. Tucker has to be my favorite with his smooth, deep voice going on the way he did. They all did and even the old towns people. Just a joy to hear each of them.
Tom Stechschulte brought this audible to life with every character that I felt I was right there. What fun it would have been to mingle with all those people aside from the murders. I had to stop, turn off my headphones and scream then jump up and down before I could finish the ending. I thought I had it figured out a few times but I sure did not!
It would be a long table with so many sitting there and I know I would laugh all night long just hearing their stories.
Thanks so much this one has me in search for more!
I would listen to this book again after some time has passed so I could be surprised by some of the events again.
Tucker, because he was so smooth and easy going. Even when he was upset he was still cool.
His southern drawl really pulled you into the story.
The acceptance and compassion that was showed by Tucker towards the little boy.
I've read and listened to this book multiple times. The story is layered, with small town dynamics and a well plotted mystery, and the audio interpretation is spot on. One of my favorites.
The narration is the best I ever listen and enjoyed. Mr Stechshulte is remarkable identifying each character. I am in love with Tucker! The story line is one of the best I listen to in a long time. I couldn't stop listening. You will love the southern manner and characters.
