I am an audiobook narrator and I have been having some issues with blending re-recorded clips. There isn’t anything different from the time I originally record, to the time I re-record spots. However, sometimes I am having a hard time getting them to sound the same. Like it sounds like an obvious edit when listening.
Is there any way to fix this?

How much time? It’s a bad idea to go back after lunch or the next day and try to fix all the flubs and mistakes.
In general, if you make a mistake, make some sound cue so you can find it again later (some performers clap, some use a toy clicker), and then read the correction right then. You will be much more likely to match the emphasis and vocal tones of the original reading that way.
The edit will consist of deleting the bad performance pieces and mending the junction points. The good voice is already there.
Are you using Punch and Roll to make corrections? Some performers like doing that but I have no experience with it.
Before you started reading, did you turn off all of the Windows Enhancements and Recording Effects? That can greatly change your voice as you perform.
Do you like to use Skype, Conferencing or Chat? Games? Were any of them running when you read the work or when you tried reading the corrections? They all try to change your voice unless you turn them off.
Drag-Select some of the work featuring both the old and new—up to ten seconds, Export Selected as WAV and post it here.
That depends on what the actual problem is. Can you post a short sample to illustrate the problem? (The sample need only be a few seconds long, and should be in WAV format. See: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/how-to-post-an-audio-sample/29851/1)
