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, the one with a covered porch just made for soft summer nights, 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 the leading suspect in the killings.

    " I love a good murder mystery, especially one with a twist. This book however took me awhile to get through, just didn't grab my attention for long like other Nora Roberts books. But it was decent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 1/4/2014

    " I liked Carnal Innocence, but thought it was not one of Nora's best. I didn't feel the normal tug when I read her books, thought that Caroline and Tucker should have been developed more. Not one of my favourites but it was still good. Don't know why I haven't read this book before now! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 MrsB | 12/19/2013

    " I was about 2 chapters in when I realized that this book was a made for TV movie that I had seen a while back. Even knowing how it would end, it was great. So much more involved than the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Meier | 6/7/2013

    " I really enjoyed this as an audio book - narrator was excellent, and he had an excellent story to tell. I enjoyed the slower pace of the story to coincide with the slower pace of the setting. Very good! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sola | 9/28/2012

    " One of her older books. Lots of smoking, and southern folks written from a mold. Heroine is amazing violinist who doesn't practice much. Herois good ol boy who really is good. Serial killer and other psychos in Mississippi keep them on their toes. "
