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 . . .
'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 has 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 . . .

Love this book! Reread again and again!
I love this book!
The best thing about this book is that you can really familiarise yourself with the character. A great read, I laughed the whole way through and couldn't put it down.
Keyes at her best!
Totally biased review....am a massive Keyes fan!
I read this book whilst travelling around
America a few years ago. We went by bus coast to coast so had a lot of time to read etc. I read this travelling from Miami to San Diego and got some strange looks...as I was howling with laughter one minute, then crying the next....this is what Marian Keyes books do to me! Rachel Walsh is in trouble....worse than that she is in denial....massively!!! This is her story of self realisation. Facing up to reality and dealing with the rest of the Walsh clan!!
The Walsh family are awesome and mammy Walsh was making us laugh long before mammy brown ! The story of Rachel's holiday is boosted by a great ensemble of characters. I love when her characters do "group" and the ISO sections are really powerful.
With Marian's characters (especially the walshes) you really believe in the protagonist and want them to overcome whatever it may be that they are facing! It tackles serious subject matter, and feels very real!
I hope Marian continues to write about the walsh family (even after mercy close)
