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.

 

 

 

 
Girls’ Night takes us through the stories of three friends on their getaway to Mexico, a trip that give them time to mend their friendships. Until one goes missing…

Natalie, Ashley and Lauren were friends for a long time, but they had grown apart. This was supposed to be the trip of all trips, mending feelings and their friendship was first on tap for the trip. Next to have some care free fun in the beautiful city of Tulum. Natalie and Ashley work together each and everyday, and there is a sale of the product that they created Nat and Ash coming up, one is all for it while the other is adamant not to sell, causing issues between them. While Lauren kinda had her life to deal with. Needless to say, there was a lot going on.

The sory is told from the point of view from all three women. All the events and drama leading up the disappearance of Ash, leaves Nat and Lauren trying to piece together the clues they come across as to where Ash could possibly be. Maybe that handsome man she met has done something to her, or maybe she just ran of with them. Who knows! The pieces do start to fall in place and it pretty entertaining trying to figure out how they fit together.

These three women weren’t always portrayed in the best light. The each had their own issues to deal with other than just their friendships. When is came to their friends, the ole’ saying “Two’s a company, three’s a crowd” certainly rings true here.

While I had a little bit of a hard time connecting with the women, the drama that ensued was pretty good. And I had to know what exactly might have happened with all of them and how it would all turn out, that I just kept reading and pieces all the clues together with Nat and Lauren.

Over all, the ending was a little anti-climatic because I had figure it all out, but it was still a really good psychological thriller and kept me turning the pages.

    I’ve been looking forward to this one, so I’m glad it’s good. It’s such an interesting premise, with one of them going missing in Mexico. I can’t wait to read it!

  2. Christy LoveOfBooks

    That’s too bad about being anti-climatic. That’s an issue I have with a lot of mystery/thrillers. But it can easily be overlooked if the author does a great job with everything else.

  3. Angela

    Yeah, going missing in a foreign country is definitely a terrifying scenario! I’m intrigued to know what happened to Ashley.

  4. Lindsi

    I’m glad you were able to enjoy it despite being able to figure things out. I recently read a book that I could not figure out despite by best efforts, but felt the story dragged in some places. Oh to be both enjoyable and unsolvable! Glad you liked it! I added it to my list last week when Greg over at Book Haven mentioned it in a post. This is the first review I’ve read, though. <3

    ooh, i like the idea of there being a bit of “two’s company, but three’s a crowd” — I think it speaks to some interesting dynamics to say the least.
