Girls’ Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke Book Review

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date July 24, 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.

Girls’ Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke Book Review

I strongly feel expectations can make or break a read. I don’t know why, but I expected Girls’ Night Out to be a fun, frolicking ride to Mexico with some petty drama between old friends, and, I was ready for it!

Dark, Twisted & Deep Wounds

I guess I should have read the summary because Girls’ Night Out is not what I consider “fun”. Girls’ Night Out dives head first into the often convoluted world of female friendships. Ashley, Natalie & Lauren have some serious issues; money, business decisions, deceased spouses, hurt feelings, etc.

The three women travel to Tulum, Mexico & surely a little bit of sunshine, sand & tequila can help them heal. They get past their initial tension & are making headway until Ashley is gone. She’s a little wild, but after a few hours pass, things are not looking good. Too bad Natalie woke up on the beach & her memory of the previous evening is completely gone. In a hungover haze,  Natalie & Lauren do their best to put on their detective hats & get moving. They have to find out what happened to Ashley.

THE VERDICT

I am Into This book. These women have some serious drama & the tone of the book is much darker than I was ready for. While The Good Widow is perfect for a warm day at the beach, get your serious pants on for Girls’ Night Out. Lisa & Liz are two of my favorites. They have a talent for writing REAL women & Girls’ Night Out is no different.
