Natalie, Ashley, and Lauren have been best friends since college but they drifted apart and have not been in touch in a few years. Hoping to save their friendship, Ashley invites the girls on a vacation to Tulum, Mexico.
Ashley hopes this trip will reunite the girls. But secrets start spilling out and there’s a falling out between the girls. Enter Marco, a charming stranger who takes a sudden interest in Ashley. Ashley becomes less interested in reviving her friendship with Lauren and Natalie. Instead, she starts spending more time with Marco.
On the girls’ last night in Mexico, Ashley goes missing. Has she been hurt? Did she disappear to start a new life? Was she kidnapped by Marco? Natalie wakes up with no recollection of the night before, and the police suspect foul play.
The story is told from multiple points of views of Ashley, Natalie and Lauren and in different timelines. I struggled to keep up with the alternating timelines before Ashley disappearance, as it detracted a bit from the storyline.
I enjoyed the camaraderie among the women, though, I had a hard time connecting with them. I didn’t particularly like any of the characters. They seemed too immature, self-absorbed, and spoiled. Over time, I grew weary of the constant banter and drama between the women.
Overall a captivating read. I loved the ending, and I was eager to know the final outcome for Ashley.
