I immediately wanted to read Girls’ Night Out once I saw the cover and then scampered over to Amazon and Goodreads to read the synopsis. A trip to Mexico that ends in a missing person? YES, PLEASE!
At first I got a little confused with the narration – it is told in multiple POVs at multiple points of time (past and present). I thought there were 4 girls on this trip for about 20% of the book and then it hit me like a ton of bricks that there were, in fact, only three! I sighed with relief because I can handle three varying POVs much easier than four!
I *did* get slightly annoyed at one of the characters for her actions and found them somewhat unbelievable largely due to the way she had said she’s always been in the past combined with her age and then these super dumb, ridiculous, irrational decisions she was making as if her back wasn’t aching, she wasn’t exhausted since dinner, etc like I know she really should have been! LOL
The ending though… makes me take a double look at the entire book. Did I miss signs? Was I too wrapped up in all the little issues that the characters were going through to notice what was right in front of my face? Or was it all supposed to be just a complete and total shock to the reader? I like that’s how it ends, though. Because I find myself still thinking of it from time to time. This is a book I will be recommending to my friends and family who enjoy this type!
Thanks so much to the publisher/authors for an advance copy in exchange for a review. I am going to finalize with a 4 out of 5 rating. I enjoyed the story, I felt like I was on vacation, and I felt like I was right in the middle of a murder/mystery investigation party!
