“Smart, emotionally intelligent, and full of surprises—page-turning time travel, with a twist you won’t see coming.” —Nicholas Sansbury Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Hell Divers and Extinction Horizon
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 plotlines, 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.
“A wonderfully personal ‘trying to change history’ story, And Then She Vanished is a fantastic, timey-wimey page turner!” —Peter Clines, bestselling author of 14, The Fold, and Paradox Bound
“Time travel with all the humor and none of the pesky paradoxes.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Time travel is used to tell an intimate, personal story here: a tale of grief and guilt and what a loving brother will do to heal the wounds of the past…Jones’s version of time travel is compelling; though the mechanism remains secret, the rules of time travel are clear. It’s a compelling set up for the…series.” —Booklist
“And Then She Vanished is a positive contemporary read with the right elements of sci-fi to bring a little bit of magic into the story. From the humor Vinny brings to the novel to the light-hearted banter Joe and Amy share during their youth, there are always scenes in the story that will bring a smile to the reader’s face—something many readers could use during their dark days.” —The Nerd Daily
