Publisher's Summary

In the small town of Innocence, Mississippi, days are long, nights are fragrant, and secrets are hard to keep. But when a brutal killer starts claiming the lives of the town's most attractive women, lifelong neighbors are forced to wonder if the culprit is a stranger lurking in the bayou...or someone right next door. World-famous concert violinist Caroline Waverly knows nothing of the murders when she arrives in Innocence. Burned out from a childhood lost to endless rehearsals and an all-too-public breakup with the conductor who was her lover, Caroline is looking for a little peace and some time to think. She hopes that a stay at her late grandmother's house will provide the tranquility she needs. But Innocence has something else to offer Caroline: a man named Tucker Longstreet. Blessed with the Longstreet good looks, lazy charm, and family fortune, Tucker is a tall, cool drink of water - and he knows it. He likes to keep his romances short and shallow. But one look at Caroline, and Tucker realizes that she is unlike any other woman he's met. Tightly coiled and coolly reserved, Caroline is determined to fight him off. She might be able to do a better job if she hadn't felt an unexpected thrill at his ardent advances...and if she hadn't been so scared after finding a third murder victim in the murky waters behind her home. For Caroline Waverly, a beautiful summer interlude could turn into much more - or could stir a killer's crazed dreams. Because there's just one small problem with her new romance: Tucker is a suspect in the killings.

First audible book for me...

With my sister being a HUGE Nora fan (has 4 kids because of it, haha), I decided to check out this audiobook. Honestly, I would have to say I've read (heard in this case) better books and was a tiny bit let down..if you don't like cheesy, predictable one-liners, you might want to pass on this book. Many times I caught myself rolling my eyes saying, "give me a break." Strangely, I found that I couldn't wait for my 45-minute ride to work in bumper-to-bumper traffic to see what happened next! The ending was completely unpredictable; I almost ran off the road when I got to the "whodunit" part. (Warning: make sure you're not operating heavy machinery while listening to the last 15 minutes of this book!) If you like "Romance" (aka "crotch") novels, I'm sure this book is worth trying. Now I'm compelled to download the other book Nora has on this website!
