Synopsis/Blurb (taken from Goodreads):

Here are two things I know about my mother:

1. She had dark hair, like mine.

2. She wasn’t very happy at the end.

Anna has always believed that her mother, Debbie, died 30 years ago on the night she disappeared.

But when her father gets a strange note, she realises that she’s never been told the full story 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 Review

I enjoyed this book very much.  The book is about a woman who disappears leaving her husband and two children without leaving a trace. Her family believe she has dies, but they are about to find out the truth about what exactly happened 30 years ago. Enough said don’t want to give too much away.

The book is written in alternative time periods one is from the past and one in the present, along with two point of views from the woman who disappeared and one from the woman’s daughter.  Normally I struggle with books written like this but I really liked this one. It worked well.

I thought the book was well written and I found it easy to read, the words just flowed so easily and I didn’t need to work hard on concentrating on the books, like I have had to on some of the other books I have read this year.

I found this book to be a good page turner with some interesting twists and turns.

The one thing I was a little confused about when I finished the book was where the title comes from.  This is because there is only one reference to 11 Missed Calls during one chapter, and nothing more.

I definitely recommend this book.
