He only looked away for a second.
Still haunted by the disappearance of his little sister Amy over twenty years ago, Joseph Bridgeman’s life has fallen apart. When a friend talks him into seeing hypnotherapist Alexia Finch to help with his insomnia, Joseph accidentally discovers he can time travel. His first trip only takes him back a few minutes, but his new-found ability gives him something he hasn’t felt for the longest time: hope.
Joseph sets out to travel back to the night Amy went missing and save her. But after several failed attempts, he discovers the farther back he travels, the less time he gets to stay there. And the clock is ticking.
With the help of Alexia, Joseph embarks on a desperate race against the past to save his sister. Can he master his new skill and solve the mystery of Amy’s disappearance before it’s too late?
Previously released as The Unexpected Gift of Joseph Bridgeman this updated version includes extra chapters, new plot lines and even deeper character development. It makes way for an expanded vision of The Joseph Bridgeman Series, with the first four books released in 2021 and 2022.
I was so intrigued by the premise and elements of time travel. It definitely lived up to my expectations. The author sets up the story so well with readers getting a sense of the loss and grief that Joe is feeling along with the determination to find out what really happened to his sister. ⠀
The story begins with the tragic event of Amy’s disappearance. We learn pretty quickly that no matter how much time has passed her brother Joe hasn’t been able to move on. When he finds out that he can time travel, things become even more intriguing.
The author raises the question of ‘can you change the past’? Readers see this question in action as Joseph goes back in time to try and save his sister.
I give And Then She Vanished 5 stars. I thought the story was captivating from start to end. Joseph was a fantastic character to follow and his perspective was both insightful and endearing. I highly recommend this time travel mystery. It’s a page turner.
