This is the first book I pulled out of the bookbox - which answered a very big question: What bookbox is this?? :)

I looked through all the books and started making selections, but couldn't figure out what bookbox this was and what books I would need to find to add back in. Now I see that it's the RABCK box I was lucky enough to receive!

Thank you! Thank you!!

Just finished this book this morning. While it's not my favorite Marian Keyes (that would be her newest 'Anybody Out There?'), it was one of her best. She did a fabulous job of portraying an addict - both while Rachel was in denial, and in her realizations of what her life was really like.

I loved the love story between Rachel and Luke. Even though we know that it probably wasn't entirely accurate since Rachel's drug use clouded her perception, there was enough to let us see how wonderful they were together.
It's not easy living with an addict. I know from experience.

While this was a serious subject matter, I laughed aloud often. Keyes does such a wonderful job in creating characters. Go read "Anybody Out There?" if you haven't already. :)

I picked this up at the newspaper box near Skyline after receiving a release alert. I see this spot has seen a lot of activity today and yesterday. I left The Pilot's Wife in place of this book.

I look forward to reading and releasing this!

When I first started this book, I thought it was going to be very Bridget Jones's Diaryish, about a whiny self obsessed young women who was desperate for the attention of a man, but with a drug addiction thrown in. It was kind of like that, but still very well done, better than Bridget Jones Diary. I was able to care about Rachel and find amusement in her assessment of her predict even though the subject matter was serious. I can definately see reading more books by this author in the future.
I am wild releasing this for the Well Traveled Wild Release Challenge!

BACK COVER: "Twenty-seven and the miserable owner of size eight feet, Rachel Walsh enjoys two naughty habits: a lover who likes his leather pants tight, and a fondness for recreational drugs. But as Rachel learns, what goes up must come down. First she loses her job, then her lover, and then finds herself being marched off to the Cloisters, Dublin's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. Outraged—surely she's not thin enough to be an addict!—it suddenly dawns on Rachel that it's about time she had a vacation, and where better than a place crammed with jacuzzis, gyms, and rock stars going tepid turkey? What she gets instead, however, are middle-aged men in sweaters and enough group therapy to drive her to distraction, until she meets Chris. A man with a past, will he be her salvation—or more trouble than Rachel's ever known? Engaging and wickedly funny, Rachel's Holiday is a powerful story of love and discovery."

I really loved this book, which sort of surprised me. I have to say it took a couple chapters for me to get emotionally involved, and then the character of Luke was introduced- which started my interest.
