Review of Love Renewed audiobook
This audiobook was fun to listen to. I've enjoyed each of Lorana Hoopes' books that I've read, but this is the first one I've listened to. There were a couple places where I had trouble understanding what narrator, Janine Granda, was saying...specifically the introduction and the closing, but otherwise she did a good job changing her voice for each character except the "bad" guy. I personally thought he sounded too nice. Even reading the book I sensed he was creepy. I was given a copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
- The Women of Valley View, Book 5
- By: Sharon Srock
- Narrated by: Laura Jennings
- Length: 7 hrs and 57 mins
Twice widowed, Kate Archer believes she's better off alone. She's not sure she could survive the heartache of losing another husband. Instead of romance, she pours herself into a project close to her heart: establishing a foundation to meet the needs of military widows - just like the grief-stricken woman she was 20 years ago when her husband was killed by friendly fire.

Kate, by Sharon Srock, narrated by Laura Jennings
Would you listen to Kate again? Why?
I probably would listen to this story again. First because it is very inspirational. Keep in mind that I wasn't raised with a church background, so this might sound silly, but the story made me realize that prayer is an ongoing process - 24/7 - not just before bed and on Sunday. Hearing Kate and the other characters praising God for the good things, and asking Him for help and guidance when troubled really had an impact on my heart and mind. The second reason is because it is a sweet, clean romance between older, more mature adults. Since I am older, it made the story more enjoyable.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked Kate. She was widowed, as I am, and I could sympathize with her feelings, especially about going into another relationship when she still had feelings for her prior husbands (she had been widowed twice).
What does Laura Jennings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Other than samples, this is the first audiobook I've listened to. I enjoyed the narration by Laura Jennings because she was able to change her voice just enough for each character - man or woman - that after a few chapters I could often tell which character was speaking.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Love when you least expect it.
Any additional comments?
I will definitely read (or listen) to more books by Sharon Srock, especially if Laura Jennings is narrating.
