Rachel Walsh is twenty-seven and the miserable owner of size 8 feet. She has regular congress with Luke Costello, a man who wears his leather trousers tight. And she's fond - some might say too fond - of recreational drugs. Until, that is, everything goes pear-shaped and she finds herself being frog-marched to the cloisters - Dublin's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. She's outraged. Surely she's not thin enough to be an addict? Rachel isn't expecting plump, middle-aged men in brown jumpers, and more group therapy than you can shake a stick at. Heartsick and Lovesick, she seeks redemption in the shape of Chris. A man who might be more trouble than he's worth.

Great writer, but narrator is awful
Marian Keyes is an excellent writer dealing with dark subject matter with great humour and sensitivity. I was looking forward to listening to this title but was so disappointed with the narrator who does the most unconvincing Irish accent I've ever heard, barely concealing her southern English Received Pronunciation—ev-ah, neh-va, foh-eva, etc—mostly in a monotonous drone. The narrator does not do the writing any justice which is a great pity.
