Again, Rachel opening lines: The touch of his hand, lightly circling my belly-button, woke me. Still half-asleep, I enjoyed the feel of his fingers tracing lower.
Rachel Walsh has her life together, finally. She has moved back to Ireland and is successful in her position helping people make it through rehabilitation. She knows only too well how to survive the process and be sober. But has she missed something along the way. Her relationship with Quin seems to be moving forward, but she still cannot tell him she loves him. Rachel is not sure why, but when her ex-husband returns to Ireland, it puts everything she thought she knew and believed to the test.
Back in the long ago nineties, Rachel Walsh was a mess.But a spell in rehab transformed everything. Life became very good, very quickly. These days, Rachel has love, family, a great job as an addiction counsellor, she even gardens. Her only bad habit is a fondness for expensive trainers.But with the sudden reappearance of a man she’d once loved, her life wobbles.She’d thought she was settled. Fixed forever. Is she about to discover that no matter what our age, everything can change?Is it time to think again, Rachel?
Marian Keyes is a brilliant author and I can highly recommend this book as a stand alone read. I will most certainly be on the lookout for more stories about the Walsh family.
