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.

    "SKip this one"

    I guess even Nora Roberts has a bad day. This was one of them. MIssing is the usual intelligent story line. Instead we have lots of gory murder details—I just didn't feel like filling my head with this one. Blech, feel like taking a shower.

    "Loved this story, Loved the characters!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Carnal Innocence to be better than the print version?

    n/a


    What did you like best about this story?

    OMGosh I loved the back story on all the characters & the fact that we got to hear their POV's every once in awhile. & the backstories were all good ones. It's been a week or 2 since the book ended & I'm missing them.
    They were just so well thought out.


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    I loved that I could almost picture the characters. The voices from each different person were spot on & sometimes I really couldn't tell that it was the same person.


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

    I don't want to be a spoiler alert, but when he takes the boy in to work at sweetriver you just fall a little in love with him. =)

    Where does Carnal Innocence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to a lot of audio books and this was one of my favorites!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was down to earth and I really enjoyed the characters.

    First one I listened too. But he did an outstanding job.


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

    There were a lot of parts but just the way they portrayed the south and the importance of family and friends.
