After reading a dud, I decided to pick a book that has been talked about all over the place. People have been raving about this one!
Thank you netgalley and Lake Union Publishing for allowing me to read this in exchange for my review.
Natalie, Ashley, and Lauren have decided to go on a trip to Mexico together to work on their friendship. There have been having arguments lately that have kept the relationship drifting apart. This trip was meant to bring them together. Will it? Natalie ends up waking up on the beach, not remembering what had happened the night before. She stumbles back to the hotel to find that Ashley has gone missing. Can Natalie and Lauren work together to find her? Can they heal their friendship?
Am I the only one who got a “Hangover” vibe in the beginning? I mean, it’s not humorous, but drinking and on vacation, waking up forgetting where you are and losing a friend? All I could think about was the Hangover. Things did change when the storyline got more intense as time went on. I will say I do have a hard time following along with a multiple point of view storyline, especially one that jumps to different timelines as well. This really lost me in this story. I tend to hyper-focus on books, and keeping track of the timeframe and who’s talking at the same time bothers me. With that being said, I really enjoyed the juicy friend drama scattered throughout. It was a nice edition to your typical mystery/thriller/suspense novel. In all, it was middle-of-the-line for me. This would make for a really good women book club read or best friend read. I have heard great things about their other books so I will try them out soon!
