Publisher's Summary

Blind-sided by her fiancé's questionable behavior, Lauren Carter returns to the one place she's managed to avoid, the small Alaskan town she used to call home. She's spent years running from her scandalous past and now she's forced to confront an uncertain future.

Blake Tully, wildly successful owner of Emerald Cove's new whitewater rafting and kayaking business, finds that Lauren's unexpected reappearance in his life ignites old feelings. Although she broke his heart once, he longs to give his childhood sweetheart a second chance.

Will Lauren allow her shameful secret to define her? Can Blake forgive her when he discovers the reason she's been hiding?

    "Sweet Story"

    I loved Unraveled right from the start. It drew me in and kept my attention as the story and characters were developed.
    The story begins with Lauren, who has spent years hiding from her past, and runs smack dab into it when she returns home for a visit. Her old love is rekindled, as her so called new love falls apart but secrets threaten to keep them apart once again.
    This is a Christian romance but it doesn't hit you over the head with that. Instead I would say this is beautiful romance with a message of forgiveness and grace.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Laura Jennings narration of this story. She added to the story with her character voices and the inflections she used in the conversation. Laura has an easy listening voice which makes this book just that much better.

    I requested this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Story
    "Get your tissues out HEA!"

    This audio surprised me! I know...this never happens but I couldn't guess what was coming next for most of the story! I am giving a spoiler by saying it was a tearful romance but that's all I'm giving you. The main character, Lauren, goes home again to Alaska after 8 years and picks back up with her family with no hard feelings. That was weird to me because the rest of her family is so close. Also, the real reason, she finally revealed is a tad bit lame, but what do I know. I was very pleased by the development of the other characters in the story and the layered plots because this was a story about a family as much as it was a romance. The audio was very clean and the implementation of Christianity was subtle and very effective. I appreciated Heidi McCahan's message of love and redemption very much. The narrator did an excellent job on this audio and I will definitely listen to her again.
    Overall, I believe this is creditworthy for someone looking for a cleaner audio with a positive message.

    I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!

    Story
    "More melodrama than I wanted"
    Any additional comments?

    I should have known what I was getting into with this listen but I did not. There is so much "Woe is me," "I should have," "Why didn't I," "He'll never forgive me," and on, and on, it went. I finished the listen but I wanted to smack Lauren by the time we get to the inevitable HEA.

    There is a very strong Christian undercurrent which should have made this listen more palpable. It did not.

    The narration was okay but a lot of this listen took place in Lauren's mind. Sometimes it was hard to tell what was spoken and what was thought.

    Story
    "Full of drama, angst and heart-warming moments"

    This is a wonderful Christian romance about second chances, hard decisions, forgiveness and love. While the story is focused on Lauren and Blake, their families and community, as well as their personal faith, play an integral part in the development of the plot. The story is clean, heart warming and has a heavy dose of the feel good factor.

    Laura Jennings has given a very appropriate performance, giving voice to the depth of heavy emotions and drama that lace this story.
