Title: Girls’ Night Out
Author: Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke
Publication Date: July 24th 2018
For estranged friends Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren, it’s time to heal the old wounds between them. Where better to repair those severed ties than on a girls’ getaway to the beautiful paradise of Tulum, Mexico? But even after they’re reunited, no one is being completely honest about the past or the secrets they’re hiding. When Ashley disappears on their girls’ night out, Natalie and Lauren have to try to piece together their hazy memories to figure out what could have happened to her, while also reconciling their feelings of guilt over their last moments together.
Was Ashley with the man she’d met only days before? Did she pack up and leave? Was she kidnapped? Or worse—could Natalie or Lauren have snapped under the weight of
her own lies?
As the clock ticks, hour by hour, Natalie and Lauren’s search rushes headlong into growing suspicion and dread. Maybe their secrets run deeper and more dangerous
than one of them is willing—or too afraid—to admit.
Thank you NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my free ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke are lifelong best friends who co-author books. I have never read anything by either author, I didn’t love this book but I did like it.
Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren have been friends for 20 years, but have been drifting apart over the last year. Ashley decides to save their friendship by inviting them on a girls vacation to Mexico. Once they get there secrets start spilling out,as the girls try and work on there issues Ashley meets a man named Marco. Ashley starts spending more time with him than her friends, and on there last night in Mexico Ashley goes missing. Natalie wakes up in the morning with gapes of memory missing from the previous night. As Natalie and Lauren search for Ashley but as they do they fear they wont find her.
The thing I enjoyed most about this book was the friendship between the women, all 3 women are pretty selfish people which annoyed me at times. A lot of there issues could have been solved with better communication and letting go of old grudges. I really enjoyed most of this book. We get flashbacks from the perspective of each woman, and find out about what has been pushing them apart. The book falls into the suspense category more than a thriller.
If you’re looking for a fast paced read for the summer, be sure to check out this book!
