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.
This book had me hooked from the start, it kept reeling me in with the new twist & turns as well. I thought I had the murder "pegged" in about chapter 2 only to change my mind later in the book. It keeps you guessing and wondering what the next plot twist will be. It introduces a wide range of characters, all who could be "the one" who is responsible for the murders going on around town. I really enjoyed the mystery with a little romance thrown in for good measure.
