Inhaltsangabe

Nora Roberts, best-selling author of The Reef and Genuine Lies, mixes scorching passion with icy suspense in her classic novel of murder and infatuation in a Southern town.

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 tranquillity 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.

Please note: This is the abridged edition. An unabridged version is also available.

Unterhaltsames Buch, leider verstümmelt

Leider hat mir die gekürzte Version des Buches überhaupt nicht gefallen. Unter anderem kommt die spielerische Entwicklung der Romanze ist nicht so gut rüber. Auch gefällt mir die Stimme der Leserin nicht wirklich gut.

Unverständlich für mich ist, dass die in UK und US erhältliche ungekürzte Version nicht in DE erhältlich ist. Die Stimme des Sprechers gefällt mir zumindest weit besser.
