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.

    "ENCHANTING- SUSPENSE - AMUZI G"

    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.

    "Very good"

    I laughed so much for a romantic murder mystery. The killer was a complete surprise to me and I usually figure it out by the middle of the story.

    "Wow!"

    I picked this one up on sale. I figured Nora Roberts is a sure bet, and she did not disappoint. I loved the narrator, he did a smooth southern drawl and created the appeal of the hero. His female voices were ok too. The story was kind of long, but well worth it for the surprise ending. Definitely an exciting read! I would recommend it.

    Any additional comments?

    I have always been a fan of Nora Roberts mysteries. However, the last few have more or less followed the same predictable formula. They are good for listening on the long commute and are entertaining though.

    Story
    "One of Nora Roberts' Best-Really Fantastic"
    Where does Carnal Innocence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is near the top in the romance/mystery/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.


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

    When the serial killer is revealed! What, who, ah-ha!


    Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

    Tucker Longstreet-perfection! Yum!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a fantastic read-full of twists and turns....a lot of character (LOVE the 'crazy', old aunt). The descriptions of the county fair are perfect. I really enjoyed Tucker's relations with every other character-not just Caroline; the other main character.

    I chuckled in parts but mostly it was really intense.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTE: Just a bit of strong language and some descriptions of murder scenes/victims. Nothing too bad

    If you could sum up Carnal Innocence in three words, what would they be?

    Carnal Innocence is a relaxing, funny, and engaging story.


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

    I was very pleased with the conclusion.


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    Yes, I liked his voices; however, he isn't the best sounding female.


    If you could rename Carnal Innocence, what would you call it?

    Tuck Me In


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first Nora Roberts book and now I am officially a fan!

    "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. =)
