Girls' Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

From the bestselling authors of The Good Widow comes a chilling novel of psychological suspense that will make you think twice about what your best friend may be hiding…
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.

My review: 3.5 stars
Girls' Night Out is a great summer beach read. Told in the POVs of all three girlfriends, and alternating between before and after Ashley's disappearance, it's a fast paced and suspenseful tale. I felt the reveal of Ashley's fate at the end was a bit rushed, while at the same time I found the description of the climbing temple trip a bit too descriptive for my taste. Although I didn't find it to be quite as chilling as I hoped, I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading more from these authors.
