In the small town of Innocence, Mississippi, days
are long, nights are fragrant, and secrets are hard to keep. But when a brutal

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

just one small problem with her new romance: Tucker is the leading suspect in
the killings. Download and start listening now!
