99 Red Balloons by Elisabeth Carpenter Book Summary


Two girls go missing, decades apart. What would you do if one was your daughter?

Eight-year-old Grace is last seen in a sweetshop. Her mother Emma is living a nightmare. But as her loved ones rally around her, cracks begin to emerge. What are the emails sent between her husband and her sister? Why does her mother take so long to join the search? And is there more to the disappearance of her daughter than meets the eye?
Meanwhile, ageing widow Maggie Sharples sees a familiar face in the newspaper. A face that jolts her from the pain of her existence into a spiralling obsession with another girl – the first girl who disappeared…
This is a gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist that will take your breath away.


‘Libby Carpenter's beautiful writing draws you in immediately. Her characterisation is superb, and she skillfully delivers a pacey, suspenseful plot. 99 Red Balloons is an intelligent, taut and compelling thriller that manages to pack a punch - and still throws you right at the end. It's perfect - I loved every word.’ SAM CARRINGTON, bestselling author of SAVING SOPHIE

Full of twists and turns. As much as I thought I had figured out the plot, I admit I was surprised...an easy read that kept me going!


So much is good about this book.... Very good character development...I really 'bonded' with them. I truly was gob smacked at the twists...rare for me. Perhaps the best thing about it was that she took the time to complete the whole story. So often I feel like as soon as the big reveal, there is a rush to end the book. Publisher's deadlines or bored with the process? I don't know, but this denouement is very satisfying. My only negative....lots and lots and lots and lots of unnecessary F-words pepper the whole book...loses any impact it might have and adds nothing. All in all...an engaging read.


Great Story. I really liked the writing and character development! It had all the feels. 👌🏼


Smartly written. Exciting twist that you don’t see coming! Great writing style that grips your attention!


Enjoyable. Ms. Carpenter’s writing style far surpasses that of other free books online. I was kept captivated, stimulated and truly began to feel for her characters. A very enjoyable read that I did not want to end. Bravo!


Great twists.. One more chapter would have been great!!

99 red balloons. It had s twist to it that II didn’t expect. Really a different read for me.


Interesting but bad ending. I was interested enough to get through the book but nothing very exciting even happened.... and the ending is extremely boring it let me down after 700 pages

Nicely done. Great read. Suspense/ fear/ many emotions.


99 Red Balloons. After all the specific in this book, I think the ending should of been more heartfelt! It was to abrupt! Otherwise the story would have gotten 5stars.

About child abductions. If I’d realized that I wouldn’t have downloaded it but it was a good read.


Good read. A bit confusing with so many characters and timelines. But improves as you get into it. Recommended to friends but they stopped reading it because of all the f bombs.
