Introduction

The fast lane is much too slow for Rachel Walsh. And Manhattan is the perfect place for a young Irish female to overdo everything. But Rachel's love of a good time is about to land her in the emergency room. It will also cost her a job and the boyfriend she adores.

When her loving family hustles her back home and checks her into Ireland's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic, Rachel is hopeful. Perhaps it will be lovely—spa treatments, celebrities, that kind of thing. Instead, she finds a lot of group therapy, which leads her, against her will, to some important self-knowledge. She will also find something that all women like herself fear: a man who might actually be good for her.

  "Rachel's Holiday"by Swee2thDi (see profile) 02/10/11

Very unrealistic at times...slow moving.. too much of the same thing going on at the rehab center..repetative...I did not like the ending...

 
  "Rachel's Holiday"by nanabev (see profile) 01/11/11

Interesting view of addiction from the adict's standpoint. However, the story was repetitive and could have been told much more concisely.
