Girls Night Out by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke – Book Review

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The release date for this book is July 24, 2018.

Ashley, Natalie and Lauren have been friends for many years and Ashley and Natalie own a successful company together.  Ashley has asked Natalie and Lauren to go away for a girl’s week in Tulum, Mexico in hopes of repairing the fractures in their friendship.  A year previous, Lauren’s husband, Geoff, passed away from a heart attack.  At Geoff’s funeral, Lauren and Ashley had a massive argument and they have not spoken since.  Ashley is hoping that not only will they get their friendship back on track but that she and Natalie can come to a mutual decision regarding their company as Revlon has made an offer to purchase it.  Natalie, for reasons that Ashley is not aware of, desperately needs for the company to be sold and Ashley, for reasons that Natalie doesn’t understand, desperately needs to hang onto it.

Shortly after they arrive in Tulum, Ashley meets a man named Marco.  He quickly insinuates himself into the threesome, much to the dismay of Natalie and Lauren.  Natalie and Lauren do not trust Marco and feel that he is becoming too familiar with Ashley, who has a husband and two children at home.

On their last night in Tulum, Lauren and Ashley have words again which causes Lauren to go back to the hotel.  Marco wants Ashley to go on an adventure with him and Natalie doesn’t want Ashley to go on her own with a strange man in a strange country after drinking for several hours.  Eight hours later, Ashley goes missing and Natalie wakes up outside, soaked to the skin with no memory of what happened the night before.

The story is told in multiple points of view using flashbacks to divulge the whole story.  This was a fun, fast read where at times, I couldn’t put it down.  There certainly were times that I just shook my head at the three women – what were they thinking????  Getting continuously drunk in a strange country, with a strange man and going off on adventures with him in the middle of the night ….. no surprise when something went wrong, but unfortunately we hear stories like this all the time in real life when people go away somewhere tropical on vacation.
