Title: Detours in Time
Author: Pamela Schloesser Canepa
Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel
Young, fiery Tabitha takes a whirlwind trip to the future with Milt, an awkward Science professor. Wonders and curiosities abound. However, their amazing journey soon becomes a race through a maze of challenges and difficult decisions.
When an unplanned detour occurs, the two set events into action that may have saved one life only to destroy another. Can these friends of completely different mindsets agree on a course of action that will get them back home without undoing the future they're growing so attached to?
Detours in Time is a fantastic escape that presents many moral dilemmas and surprises on a journey that will either destroy the strongest of friendships or bring two people even closer.

Quirky professor Milt and his friend Tabitha (also known as Pinky) delve into the world of time-travel to prove/disprove scientific theories in various time periods. What starts as an adventure soon turns to a serious predicament. Altering the past/present/future has devastating consequences as Pinky soon finds out. Can they alter their original plans in order to undo the mess they’ve created or will it destroy them and their friendship?
I love time-travel and this one certainly delivers. Both Pinky and Milt are fun characters and I enjoyed being a part of their world. Realistic in even the most out-there circumstances, they are the heart of Detours in Time. I found myself wondering if I would do the same as them, if thrust in the same set of events.
Like Doctor Who and Back to the Future, there’s plenty of comedy to lighten the seriousness of time-travel. The author doesn’t shy away from the morality issues of time-travel but rather she approaches it from a different perspective. I liked that.
The only downside to Detours in Time was the abrupt ending. While I understand it’s book one of a series, there needs to be some way to close book one without just ending it.
If you’re a fan of time-travel and/or Doctor Who, you’ll enjoy Detours in Time. Plenty to keep you occupied for a few hours.
Favorite Character/Quote: "Do you remember telling me once, Milt, that all possibilities existed within any given moment, but the possibility we get to live is the one we choose?"
My Rating: 4.5 stars
