Girl’s Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke
Reading Level: Thriller
Release Date: July 7, 2018
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Summary: 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: I started reading Girl’s Night Out on the plane ride back from my vacation. It was just Ashley, Natalie, Lauren and I floating up in the sky. I was so enthralled, that I couldn’t stop reading.
Unfortunately my eyes betrayed me by getting sleepy. They cannot be trusted. *sighs* Anywho, I always envied girl groups who have this sister dynamic and have known each other for a ridiculous amount of years. But, after this twisted story, I must say I am thankful for the few drama free friends in my life.
These girls had deep rooted issues with one another and poor Ashley seemed to be the common denominator. Don’t get me wrong, I loved all of their personalities. Even when they drove me insane and I wanted to jump in the book and yell at them. Each woman was unique in her own way and I loved how Liz and Lisa did a superb job in differentiating their traits.
Behavior wise, it reminded me how gossiping and being fake can take you so far. We’ve all been through some female drama throughout our lives, so it was definitely relatable on that aspect. Haters are going to hate no matter what you do or say.
The plot was thrilling and exciting, I was breezing through the chapters because I had so many unanswered questions! And, I’m not one for tears while I read, but Girl’s Night Out got me. This was the first time a book made me cry. The emotional moments were so raw that I couldn’t help but not feel moved. I was so invested in the characters and story that I felt like I was in it.
Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about Girl’s Night Out. It’s one of those reads that hits your heart and ruins your life in a good way. And, if you pay close attention to the wisdom in this novel, you will take life changing advice away from it.
An absolutely delightful and addictive release from Liz and Lisa, you ladies have a special place in my heart and I look forward to reading more works from you two!
