Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Reads! Today I am sharing a few quotes from Girls’ Night Out by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke. This is a book that I have been highly anticipating. I keep hearing about it and I hear that it is a real page-turner.
Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share quotes (the first sentence, or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.
THIS WEEK’S BOOK:
From the bestselling authors of The Good Widow comes a chilling novel of psychological suspense that will make you think twice about what your best friend may be hiding…
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.
Waves lapped against the shore. It sounded as if the sea were breathing. In and out. Between the whitecaps breaking against the sand, there was a pause, almost as if the ocean were inhaling and preparing to release another breath.
The warm wind whipped through Ashley’s hair as she navigated her pink beach cruiser down the narrow, bumpy, puddle-filled road to yoga class. To her right, huge palms crowded together, running the length of the street.
I just started this one last night and I am already looking forward to getting back to it. I love a great suspense story and this one sounds perfect. The friendship theme and the missing person aspect to it has me really intrigued.
