Three friends go on a relaxing getaway to reconnect. The women are in their 40’s... Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren and they developed a close-knit friendship during college but over the years their friendship has fizzled a little. Thinking a girls' trip, with plenty of sun and booze, will fix everything, they head to Tulum, Mexico.
Toasting over ginormous margaritas, they all agree that they should throw caution to the wind and anything could happen! After a wild night of who knows what, Natalie wakes up completely alone on beach with absolutely no memory of what happened. She’s scared and fearful that she was drugged. Natalie is the responsible one - forty with a husband and kids and this kind of thing never happens to her.
This story is told through alternating viewpoints - Ashley, Natalie, and Lauren. The book starts with Natalie waking up after their last girls' night out in Tulum and realizing Ashley is missing. The night before is a haze, but Natalie and Lauren have a hard time believing Ashley would leave and not let them know where she was. As the story unfolds, we learn more about each of the women, their past, their present, and what happened on their girls' night out.
For those of us who love Friendships with secrets and a fast-paced, suspenseful, and compelling novel - ‘Girls’ Night Out’ fits the bill perfectly! 4.5 Stars
I found it unrealistic that Lauren would blame Ashley for his death. I also found the storyline that Natalie couldn't tell Ashely her reasons for wanting to sell the company. Yes, Ashley meeting Marco and wanting clarity didn't help. I felt Ashley was the victim of bullying by her husband and Lauren and under to much pressure. It was drawn out after her death with Natalie not remembering the events. I just kept waiting for something big to happen and it didn't.
The three distinct characters depicted in this story are known by all of us.... But, which one is our character ? Our own true personality?
Mind you they can certainly throw down the booze!!
Not a great read, but not a bad read either.

There's far far too much dialogue, and very little description of what could have been a great setting. The characters are two-dimensional, and the plot was slow and predictable. It was a real slog to get through, but I persevered to see if there was an amazing twist at the end which justified it's publication - but no, there was no real mystery at all. The entire book could have been condensed into a short story, and even then it still wouldn't be very riveting.
Reviews from critics/other authors stating that it's a 'heart-stopper of a thriller', 'utterly enthralling', 'impossible to put down'... did they read a different book?! I certainly won't be going near any of those authors if they thought this was good. One review was correct however when it stated that the book 'will leave readers shocked again and again... and again' - it certainly did, just not in the right way. The fact that Girls' Night Out was written by two authors shocked me the most, as I thought two heads were better than one.
The jumping from person to person and back and forth in time for each chapter was a bit confusing to start and even when I knew all the characters I didn't really like that way of storytelling.
Didn't like any of the characters and therefore had no real interest in the outcome.
