Carnal Innocence

Carnal Innocence - Nora Roberts It took quite some time for the story to develop and I had a hard time sticking with it. Somewhere around halfway, it got really interesting, the characters came alive and the mystery got suspenseful. The relationship between Caroline and Tucker developed slowly and unfolded very nicely. Both of them had commitment issues that needed resolution before they could have a decent chance at a romance and it was handled's the highlight of the book. The whodunit factor is pretty high and there's a nice surprise ending. I'm rating this only a 3.5 because it just took too long for this story to develop. It's worth it to hang in there but, for me, it was a challenge.
