Format: Paperback
If you are looking for the type of storyline that will take the character through a journey - then this is the book for you. Rachel Walsh, sister to the other Walsh characters (Claire from Watermelon, Maggie from Angels), has to come to terms with her drug addiction while she is in rehab at the demands of her family. This book is unique because it doesn't hide the ugly truth of drug addiction, and you also get a good idea of Rachel's progress through Marian's description of her thoughts and physical withdrawal symptoms. If you are looking for a book that isn't about the will she / won't she get the guy - then pick up Rachel's Holiday. It's a good read on a uncommon topic.

I don't know what it is about these characters but I am absolutely in love with each and every one of them. After I read Rachel's holiday, I plowed through another 4 books by Marian Keyes in succession. Each book is such a fun read, but Rachel's Holiday will always be my fav. Just ordered Last Chance Saloon, lets see if she can do it again!

Keyes does an amazing job at taking drug addiction, and turning it into an engaging, funny and heartwarming story. She also helps create empathy with a group of people who can sometimes be outcasts. Great job, Keyes!

This, like all her other books is a great read. I laughed out loud and at the same time my heart ached for Rachel. It's one of those books you will re-read again and again. A must read especially for anyone who works in the addiction field or has been to treatment. I recommend it to all my clients, co-workers and friends.

Format: Paperback
This is the second book of Keyes' that I read (after Watermelon) and it was absolutely fantastic. Way better than I was expecting after being disapointed by Watermelon. The story of Rachel and her drug addiction is real-life, inspiring, hilarious and heartwarming. I could not put this book down! It was also the icing on top of the cake to realize that Rachel is part of the same family (the Walshes) as Claire in Watermelon (and as I later found out, Maggie in Angels). Its really neat to hear of updates on the other members of the crazy Walsh family! While Rachel's Holiday is an easy read, it is also completely different from your usual girly "lay-on-the-beach" read. It tackles a completely different topic but still manages to be funny and gripping! I totally LOVED this book!!!!!!!

This is a great book, but unfortunately I have a hard time putting it down! The story of Rachel is just wonderful as she battles drug addiction, beginning with denying there is a problem at all. She goes to a treatment facility and as the story unfolds she begins to admit she has a problem and reflects on her life. The chemistry between Rachel and Luke is just so well written you can feel it. Not all the characters are very likeable, but that is real life too. I would love to read more about Rachel. Great book.

Format: Paperback
This book has been purchased and given away to 12 different friends. I recommend it to anyone that has seen the addictive personality up close and have had addiction professionals use it as a fun guide to recovery. I love all of Marion Keyes books, but this one and Last Chance Saloon are my favorite rereads. I haunt the bookstores waiting for every new book to hit the shelves and share my joy with my reading girlfriends. Thanks for the joy!
