“Call no man happy until he is dead. Herodotus.” Mr. Nancy raised a white eyebrow, and he said, “I’m not dead yet, and, mostly because I’m not dead yet, I’m happy as a clamboy.” “The Herodotus thing.

In Girl’s Night Out by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, we follow three girlfriends on their trip to Tulum, Mexico. They had been friends for years, but recent events in their lives put a strain on their relationships. This trip is their last chance to reconnect. Only, the getaway doesn’t go as planned—old wounds don’t always heal so easily. When one of the friends disappears, the other two must overcome suspicion and memory loss to work together and find out what happened.
