1st ed.

The fast lane is too slow for twenty-seven-year-old Rachel Walsh, who has a fondness for recreational drugs and good-looking men. And New York City is the perfect place for a young Irish female to overdo.. everything! But then the merry-go-round stops short. In quick succession, Rachel loses her job, her best friend, and the boyfriend she adores...and wakes up in a hospital emergency room, have overindulged.

Perhaps Rachel does have a bit of a problem, but clearly everyone is overreacting! The Walsh family clan, however, is concerned enough to take their wayward duckling by the wing and hustle Rachel and her broken heart back to Dublin and straight to Ireland's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. Oh well, figures Rachel, she could certainly use a holiday.

But instead of spa treatments and sexy rock stars going tepid turkey, she finds herself totally surrounded by middle-aged men in brown acrylic sweaters. Bored to distraction, her self-esteem at a perilously low ebb, Rachel knows that another million hours of group therapy will certainly drive her seriously mad. And then she meets Chris.

Beautiful Chris Considerate Chris. Chris, the man with a mysterious past who might be Rachel's salvation, or the worst trouble she has ever known. And suddenly there is hope in a hitherto hopeless existence, as Rachel resolves to ride this wild dream to new love-or to wherever else her wayward heart may choose to lead her.

display_description 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 and 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.
