I found it to be an enjoyable, easy read.

I felt there was also too much details and conversations that just caused the book to drag on.

I would skip 2-3 pages at a time just to get through it.

Unforgettable Embrace is a very realistic and satisfying story.

While I have not been in the same situation as Rachel, I felt like she was a very relatable character. She can't quite put her finger on it, but there's just something about her relationship with Tony that isn't right, so she ends things. The break up makes her question herself and the decisions that she's made so far in life. Even when she was at her worst, she was still very sweet. It was very interesting to read about her journey to finding herself.

This book moves at a very slow pace. Even though Rachel is a grown woman it almost felt like a coming of age story. However, the pacing really gives you a chance to really get to know the characters. If you have an interest in romance/chick lit then this is definitely the story for you!

I was kindly given this book to read by the author. I enjoyed many things about this book. I love the setting. Also,I love the authors way of describing things in the book. She makes things so clear that you feel like you could actually see what she is describing and the food scenes made me very hungry. However sometimes it seemed to be almost to descriptive and it bogged the story down just a little. I also enjoy most of the characters in the book. I like the main group of women most of the time. I also enjoyed the fact that the main character is flawed and not at all perfect. But she is trying to change to make her life better from the start of the book , and the journey that she makes through out the book is interesting. The ending surprise me I did not see it coming. I would recommended this book for anyone looking for a fun read. Also anyone interested in traveling would enjoy this book.

The author contacted me to see if I would be interested in a free e-book version in exchange for a review.I accepted and read it on my Kindle.

This book is perfect for lazy weekend read. And while I gave it four stars, I think it was be merely out of enjoyment versus a true LOVE for this book. I found myself just enjoying the story and the journey of self discovery that the main Character embraces.

Unforgettable Embrace is the story of Rachel, a 30-ish woman who breaks off her 14-year relationship with her childhood sweetheart and feels lost now that she has given up on years of comfort and stability. But soon with the help of friends she decides to travel around Ireland to find herself.

Throughout Rachel's travels, there is a constant inner dialogue going on with Rachel. She describes the landscape, villages, people she meets and her emotions based on where her life has now lead her. While this can be VERY daunting and drag on at time, (I actually found my self skipping over it often towards the end,) I did have an appreciation for the struggle you can see in Rachel as she comes into a new person.

My only one complaint is that I did not like the main character. I found her selfish at times and hard root for. She often become so self absorbed that I felt sorry for other characters that she interacted with. In a way it reminded me of EAT LOVE PRAY. a story of a women drowning in resent and what ifs? So she sheds all that she has been to discover some sort of new happiness.

I enjoyed this book as it was a fun and light easy read. I found it predictable towards the end and actually wish for more then what i as the reader was left with. But I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for an easy, warm hearted read.

I really think I would like Rachel as a person, I thought it was great she didn't stay in a going nowhere relationship that was comfortable and safe for her, just because they had been together for years. She was actually a little relieved to have finally made that decision and get ready to move on with her life. The story was very enjoyable, I thought it needed some editing and it would have been an even better story. Some of the words were misspelled , and something about the accent was a little aggravating for me, using terms and words I'm not familiar with in our country. No fault of the writer or the book, just things I wasn't as familiar with and made it not flow as smooth for me. I did enjoy her story about Rachel and I will be reading another of her books! I think this book is worth your time and effort to read .

Interesting book about love lost and love found. I enjoyed the book, but I wasnt too into it. Loved the main character and how it was based in Ireland. It was a bit slow and boring but all in all a good story line. If I find myself drifting off during read time it wasnt keeping my attention. That is my personal opinion. It was a good book and I am not trying to lower anyones thoughts about it. Rachel was adorible. Loved her friends and sister. Absolutely loved the traveling through Ireland

SPOILER ALERT---SPOILER ALERT--SPOILER ALERT

I like Joanne Clancy's writing. Her words flow and paint a picture so I can see what she is writing about. That being said I liked that Rachel took off on her own to travel around Ireland. She showed some growth during that part but Rachel ended driving me crazy with her drinking and going off the deep end when things did not go her own way. There were times I wanted to paddle her for her behavior. Joanne Clancy did get Holly, Rachel's sister, and Jen and Liz, her friends, reaction to Rachel's overdrinking and bad behavior right. I understood exactly what they felt and why. Her relationships with men left much to be desired. She broke up with Tony, her long time beau. Then starts dating through on-line dating and hooks up with a few of those men but none of them is right. When she travels she hooks up with Batt during her travels and keeps him at arm's length when she wants to be free then decides she wants a closer relationship but kisses another man during Jen's hen party. No wonder Batt was always confused and fighting with her. Rachel does not come across as the most stable of people.

The story at times had problems of what genre it wanted to be. Sometimes it was a romance. Sometimes there was suspense. Sometimes it was a travelogue. Sometimes a history. Sometimes a food guide. Ms. Clancy did a lot of research to ensure that Rachel's travels were correct and she shared her research. The research was interesting but there was too much of the research put in the story. Yes, it made me want to go to Ireland and visit. Yes, I want to go to the restaurants and eat the food. But it was overkill and took away from the romance as well as the suspense that occurs at the end.
