Carnal Innocence Movie On Lifetime

Nora Roberts is my favorite author so I was really excited to review Carnal Innocence, Lifetime’s newest movie based on the book by Nora Roberts. It’s one of the few books of hers that I have not read yet. This movie was not what I was expecting at all since I’m used to reading romance novels from her and this, to me, was more a thriller than a romance (though it was not lacking in the romance department). The plot kept me guessing and the secret that one of the characters shared at the end caught me off guard. Overall, I thought it was a great movie and one I would definitely watch again.

Here is a description of the movie (from Lifetime’s website):

Based on the book by Nora Roberts. After suffering a professional setback, world-renowned violinist Caroline Waverly (Gabrielle Anwar) decides to head to Innocence, Mississippi, where she spent summers as a child, for some peace and solitude away from the spotlight. Shortly after arriving, Caroline meets the arrogant but charming Tucker Longstreet (Colin Egglesfield), a member of one of the town’s most prominent families, who is quickly smitten by her. But Caroline’s dreams for tranquility turn into a nightmare when she discovers the body of a young woman, the possible victim of a serial killer whom the authorities suspect may be Tucker. Caroline soon discovers that even in a town called Innocence, secrets have no place to hide. Oscar winner and multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Shirley Jones also stars.

(Disclosure: I received an advanced copy of the movie to review but all thoughts are my own.)
