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.

The wait has ended

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

this is one of Nora Roberts all time great ones.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tucker Longstreet, his zest of life.

Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

he is not the best reader,but he grows on you. Carolyn McCormick did the abridged version and she always does a great job.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Don't cross the line!

Any additional comments?

I have waited 10 years for this full length version to be converted to download.

Wow...really good with lots of twists and turns

Let me say, that I have just recently started listening to several Nora Roberts books. I'm truly impressed. The narrator is excellent and the twists and turns in this book are exceptional. The person who you think may have done it, didn't! You never have a clue as to who really "done did it" (smile). I really liked this audio and would highly recommend it not ony for the romance which is not over the top (don't like too syrupy) but would recommend this for the good mystery writing.

Excellent, Entertaining, Enthralling, Exciting

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would and I have, to several of my friends, because it was such a good read from start to finish (even though I actually listened to the audio version). I loved the characters and the tension that was present throughout the whole story. I went into smug mode at one point as I thought I knew who the murderer was but I was completely wrong....very good twist.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I had several so it is hard to say, they were all good....even the baddies!

Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have and I absolutely love him as a narrator, there are a good few out there that could take a lot of lessons from his performances. He gives every character their own personality with his differing voices and accents....brilliant performance by him, as always.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could have, I would have....sadly, I also have a life and have to let that interfere every now and then!!

Any additional comments?

I adore Nora Roberts writing and am forever grateful that she is such a prolific author as I never tire of reading her stories. I have read several of her trilogies and individual books and have enjoyed every one of them. The only thing that spoilt one for me was the narrator but I have noticed that she has never been used on any of the other of Nora Roberts audio versions so, I guess I wasn't the only one with that opinion. I have recommended Nora to all of my bookworm friends and relatives as there is bound to be a story for every one of them.

Really good

As a fan of Nora Roberts I loved this book (almost a foregone conclusion though!). It has all her traits-excellent writing, interesting characters and a twist at the end that always keeps me guessing throughout the book. The narrator was a little slow for me to start with, but by the end I thought it was wonderful-a really slow, southern drawl...perfect!
