What's it about..

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 thoughts about it..

Three friends who have been estranged decide to have some time away together in order to build bridges and repair their friendship. The beautiful resort of Tulum in Mexico is the setting for this girlie get-together but then one of the women, Ashley, goes missing after a girls' night out, leaving Natalie and Lauren to try and discover what has happened to their friend.

What then follows is the story of broken friendships, about friends who no longer know what the other's are thinking and it's about the race against time to find out why Ashley has disappeared. I enjoyed spending time in Mexico with this story, both the place and the characters are brought to life in an interesting way, whilst at the same time, keeping the excitement of the story alive in the imagination. The mystery at the  heart of the story is well thought out, with enough twists to keep you guessing.

I rather like the idea of two authors writing in conjunction, and this duo, who have been co-writing  for several books, blend together quite seamlessly, so that there never seems to be any jarring overlap when each individual author takes over the narrative.

Girls Night Out is a clever thought out and multi-layered contemporary mystery which works well as a summer read.
