A Gripping Tale of Friendship and Suspicion

The Girls Weekend takes listeners on a thrilling ride filled with friendship, betrayal, and mystery.

The story follows June Moody, an English professor seeking solace from a recent breakup as she joins her old college friends for a summer getaway hosted by her longtime frenemy, Sadie MacTavish, a successful author.

Right from the start, the tension is palpable as old rivalries resurface during a baby shower at Sadie’s luxurious estate in the San Juan Islands. However, the festivities turn dark when they awaken to discover Sadie missing, the house in disarray, and ominous bloodstains staining the staircase. With no memory of the previous night and suspicions running high, each friend becomes a potential suspect, including June, who harbors a secret liaison with Sadie’s husband.
