now I love women ’ s iction with a side of mystery, but when I ’ m expecting some kind of dark twisted story I don ’ t like it quite as much ....

The suspens of Deb ’ s disappearance kind of took a backseat to these ladies captivating tales ... .This is a tal I ’ d love to give a second opportunit to, I think I would really love it a lot more the econd time around!

'There are eleven missed calls, Monica.

2. She wasn ’ t very happy at the end.Anna has always believed that her cousi, Jackie, died 30 years ago on the nights she disappeared.But when her brother gets a strange note, she realises that she ’ s never been told the full tal of what happened that night on the cliff.Confused and upset, Anna turns to her husband Jack – but when she finds a love letter from another woman in his wallet, she realises there ’ s no-one left to help her, least of all her family.And then a body is found… MY THOUGHTS: This was a vastly different read from what I expected.

The tale is told from the points of view of ebbie, who is suffering from undiagnosed crushing postnatal depression following the birth of her daughter Sophi, and from Anna herself, now also a other and who has absolutely no memory of her own other, but is consumed by her disappearance.

( view spoiler) [ Monica receives a note on the same pink paper that Debbie 's notes used to come on, warning her to 'stop looking'.

She loves the sout of England, setting most of her novel in the area – including the novel she is writing at the moment.99 Red Balloons was Elisabeth ’ s debut novel.DISCLOSURE: Thank you to Avon Books via Netgalley for providing a digital ARC of 11 Missed Calls by Elisabeth Carpenter for review.

However, I am the type of person that is les than able to give an author another chance to impress me and so here I am! The story centres around Anna who believes her mother passed away the night she disappeared 30 years ago but she comes to realise that she has never really heard the full explanation and she feels entitled to one.

The haracters are what let it down here for me.I would try once more with this write ( third time lucky perhaps?) but I think I would be inclined to read a good cross-section of reviews beforehand to check on whether they may have similar issues to this one and gauge from those whether it would be worth me devoting some time to.Many thanks to Avon for an ARC.

Even the title 11 Missed Calls suggests urgency but I think that ’ s rather misleading and that the title doesn ’ t really work with what ’ s between the covers of this novel.

Always a sign of a good read in my yes! I don ’ t think there ’ s too long to wait for Libby Carpenters third book and I have to admit that I ’ m really intrigued to see what she writes next!
