Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes

Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes manages to deal with a serious subject and still be tremendously entertaining. The serious subject here is an addiction to drug and alcohol. Rachel Walsh's life disbands as she cultivates her addictions and after losing her employment, her boyfriend, and her best friend, Rachel finds herself back to her home land of Ireland in treatment. The story that follows are Rachel's comical misadventures as an addict in denial while in treatment, interspersed with flashbacks of how she became an addict. I love Marian Keyes and her writing style.
5 Stars
