Meet Rachel Walsh, twenty-seven and the miserable owner of size 8 feet. Rachel loves, Luke Costello, a man who wears his leather trousers tight; New York life and she's so fond of cocaine, that she gives new meaning to the expression 'powdering her nose'. After a night's over-indulgence, Rachel finds herself being frog-marched back to the bosom of her family and Dublin's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, The Cloisters. 'Chance for a session of star-spotting', she thinks, yet what she doesn't aniticipate is discovering the truth about herself, her addicition and her life. Wickedly funny, powerful and moving RACHEL'S HOLIDAY is an unforgettable story of life today.

Review:

Deliciously dark and fantastically funny, Rachel's Holiday is the story of a young woman living life rather too well until the day she takes it too far endangering everything she cares about . . . (from the publisher's description)

From the Back Cover:

'They said I was a drug addict.
But my occasional drug use was strictly recreational.
And, hey, surely drug addicts are skinny?'

Rachel is living it up in New York City, spending her nights talking her way into glamorous parties, before heading home in the early hours to her hot boyfriend Luke.

Then her sensible older sister shows up and even though it seems like a bad joke, she finds herself in actual rehab.

It's there that she's supposed to kick her non-existent drug habit - and to get over losing Luke . Luke's a fox, he's also strong and kind, but he's had more than he can take of Rachel.

None of this was part of her plan and saying goodbye to fun will be hard.

But not as hard as losing the man that, too late, she believes might be the love of her life . . .
