Meet Rachel Walsh.

She’s been 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 adoring boyfriend, Luke.

But her sensible older sister showing up and sending her off to actual rehab wasn’t quite part of her plan.

She’s only agreed to her incarceration because she’s heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, spa treatments and celebrities going cold turkey – plus it’s about time she had a holiday.

Saying goodbye to fun and freedom will be hard – and losing the man who might just be the love of her life will be even harder.

But will hitting rock bottom help Rachel learn to love herself, at last?

Publisher Review

Rachel's appeal as a heroine is instant and irresistible. What begins as a pitch-perfect, bitingly funny romantic comedy quickly becomes dark, profound, heartbreaking . . . and then light again. Keyes's comic gift is always evident, and the prose itself is propulsive * Independent * 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 . . . * from the publisher's description * It's full of LOLs, but also delivers a sucker-punch of emotion - a proper comfort-blanket book * Claire Frost, Fabulous magazine * Keyes manages to have you alternately blubbing and belly-laughing to the final page * Company * Gloriously funny * The Sunday Times *
