Girls Night Out by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

My Thoughts

4 Stars and A Margarita🍹 🌟🌟🌟🌟

First of all where can I get me one of these BLOWN brush things? Seriously the curly hair struggle is real!!!

My daughter and I were out to dinner tonight and we were talking about things and it came up that I am a girls girl, her… not so much… i’ve always had strong female friendships, and I’ve been beyond blessed to have had the amazing friends that I have had throughout my entire life…. yes even in high school! However even the strongest of friendships can be complex… and the more friends you add to the group the more challenging it can become, it’s hard to maintain a balance… sometimes even the most innocent of actions can cause a great deal of hurt… The fact that the authors of this book are friends added so much authenticity to the book, their friendship poured through the pages…

Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren have been the best of friends for decades… and even though they have been estrange from Lauren for the past year, Ashley is convinced she can rectify this with a fabulous girls getaway to Mexico… some sun, some sand, some tequila, and things will be as good as they used to be, right? Wrong! There are a lot of secrets and hurt between these girls, and even the best of margaritas cannot quickly fix this…

This really was a book about secrets and forgiveness… now I am a true oversharer so I wasn’t always sure why they didn’t share some of this information with one another? especially if they are friends? Just seems like a lot of problems could have been solved if everyone knew what was going on… but this seems to be very common in books and in life… seriously these girls knew how to keep a secret after three margaritas I’d be spilling my secrets to whoever would listen, LOL…. The forgiveness in this book was interesting, I felt some things were more forgivable than others…. how far can you push someone before they’ve had enough?

I liked how we got all three of the girls perspectives… Ashley was a hard character to have much sympathy for… she kept saying how much she wanted to repair their friendship, and then she had a guy spend most of their vacation with them? I would have found this so annoying! A girls vacation should be just that… a GIRLS vacation! Natalie and Lauren were much more likable and relatable, there were times in this book I thought they should just be BFFs and forget about Ashley!

This book really had a bit of everything friendship, secrets, forgiveness and a mystery… where is Ashley? And will Natalie recover her memory? This was just such a good story that truly explored the complexities of female friendship…. the good, the bad, and the ugly…. cannot wait to see what these authors have in store for us next!

Absolutely recommend to everyone who loves a book filled with secrets, mystery, and complicated female relationships…

About the Book

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.

Friendship Never Ends! Berit☀️✨

  1. I’ve never been good with females! Ha ha! I think starting this blog has offered me the most female interaction I’ve ever had! 😂😂 It’s been absolutely wonderful though!
    I’m with you in the oversharing department, though. Pretty sure I have TMI just stamped on my forehead. I’ve heard good things about this book, maybe I’ll have to read this book… I was going to say “to figure out how to have female friendships”, but it doesn’t sound like these ladies fare so well!

    1. LOL yes not the right book on how to be a good female friend! My daughter is the same way, she’s had some pretty tragic female friendships, it is confounded me! I guess I was just really lucky, but you don’t realize it in the middle of it all! If you do get a chance to read it I hope you enjoy!

  2. Great review Berit! We have read many of the same books lately and I think we share similar tastes! I liked this book also, esp the complicated female friendships with people that we have know for a long time. A few of my friends came to mind when reading this book.

  3. Amazing review. I saw this on someone’s blog and it really appealed to me and after reading your review, it has been moved up my TBR. I love mystery, friendships and all that entails. I have always had a lot of close female friends so i can relate for sure.
