Amazon.com: 4.1 out of 5 stars 7 reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars Canepa’s novel excels by creating three distinct time periods that each feel relatable July 19 2017
By Literary Titan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pamela Schloesser Canepa’s novel, Detours in Time, is anything but your run of the mill science fiction novel. It follows Professor Milton Braddock, who has conveniently developed a time-traveling car, and his assistant turned traveling companion, Tabitha (cutely nicknamed “Pinky” by the professor). The pairing of the older and more experienced Milt with young, spunky Tabitha will feel comfortably familiar to Doctor Who fans, as the two travel through time, encountering futuristic adventures as they begin to feel a bit closer than just friends. Though their time travels begin as scientific examinations into both the past and the future, Milt and Pinky’s present and future lives begin to unravel when they break their golden rule of not disturbing the future.

Canepa’s novel excels by creating three distinct time periods that each feel relatable to readers: 1997 (the “present” for Milt and Pinky), 2018, and 2047 (where most of the novel occurs). By creating a recent past setting, a practically present setting, and a not too distant future setting, Canepa creates a science fiction novel that relies on her well-developed plot and inter-character relationships rather than the spaceships, aliens, and high-tech gadgets of many science fiction works.

Detours in Time begins mid-adventure in 2047, without skipping a beat. Though 2047 is certainly more futuristic than what readers in 2017 experience in their daily lives, it is not so high-tech as to be completely beyond belief. But perhaps most shocking to readers will be how the citizens of 2047 describe the war that tore apart the United States in 2019, with reasons for division painfully realistic: “how tax money was spent, which citizen’s rights could or could not be limited and for what reason, the role of the military, who was allowed to immigrate into the country…” Milt and Pinky are aghast at the country’s divide, but readers’ hearts in 2017 will ache at the accuracy of what Canepa describes.

But, thankfully for readers, Canepa does not spend too much time dwelling on the demise of the United States, but rather takes a closer look at the questions that time travel inevitably brings: What happens when you interfere? Could a single action reroute history entirely? Are you better off not knowing? The last question is one that Pinky and Milt find themselves asking after they look into their own futures and decide to take a bite of the forbidden fruit: trying to change the future.

A truly five-star novel, Detours in Time is a well-written and interesting story with characters who are developed independently and whose relationships are carefully crafted, not flung together as if forced. Detours never stalls or bores readers, but it invests enough time in explanations and detail that it feels thought out. Readers will find Milt and Pinky’s 90s naïveté charming (What’s a text? What does it mean to swipe? Why would anyone eat food out of a truck?) but also eye-opening: how long ago were we asking those same questions ourselves? Milt and Pinky’s present is just twenty years in our past, which begs the question, what wonders or terrors does twenty years in our future hold? Canepa brings Detours In Time to a natural close, but leaves the door wide open for a second novel in the series, hopefully one that readers will not have to travel too far into the future to experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Join the author on this amazing journey July 7 2017
By Sergio Tinoco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Is time travelling possible? If it were, how would things be like in the future? Would our world be different from what it is now? These are all questions that I have repeatedly asked myself throughout my life. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wondered what our world would be like one hundred years from now. Canepa has done an excellent job in describing this futuristic world for readers to enjoy and be amazed at the many curious wonders it depicts. I must say that I had a great time reading this book and am happy to recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars It did take a while for me to get into the plot but once I did I found it quite interesting and some of the ideas and characters July 16 2017
By Kirsty W. - Published on Amazon.com
This is an intriguing read about time travel. Quite similar to the concepts of the film Back to the future and the consequences of changing just one thing and how it can affect the future. It did take a while for me to get into the plot but once I did I found it quite interesting and some of the ideas and characters brilliant and we'll developed. I did find that the end was more of a "sizzle" rather than a "bang" which it could have been. However very interesting concept. Unfortunately due to the ending that I found slightly disappointing and that I did struggle during some parts the book lost a point. Well done to the author for creating and intriguing and unique storyline. Recommend to fans of time travel and Sci fi

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking time travel with a sound focus on humanity. July 12 2017
By Ann M Pratley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
There were so many things to like about this book. The underlying story is one of trying to find out what happened to a character's family member. The journey to find that out was one of futuristic and time travel fiction.

What inspired me so much with this story was the flow of ideas of the author about how life could be in the future year visited via time travel. It prompted me to consider the track that parts of our planet are on and how we live our lives ... and how this could flow on in years to come. It was kind of a blend of a really good fictional story, combined with enthusiasm for really stopping to take a look at our decisions and our actions. This was great writing and a thought provoking storyline. My kind of story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! June 20 2017
By Emily Louise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
*kindly sent this book for review purposes, all thoughts and opinions are my own*

Love this book!
Not my usual read but I'm so glad I picked it up.
I'm going to admit that 'time travel' and all things related to it normally confuses me slightly and I end up giving up the read but I truly enjoyed going on this journey with Tabatha and Milt and experiencing all the troubles that may entail.
I couldn't stop asking question throughout like, "how do they get onto the subject of time travel?" "what device is used?" "does anything go wrong?" "If so, what?".

My highest praise to Pamela Canepa, who just wrote this book in such a captivating way that the reader will not want to put it down until the very last page and even then the reader will be dying to reach for more. The more you read the more you just need to find out what is happening and WHAT DO THEY DISCOVER about their future selves. Pamela describes certain scenes/places that the reader is just thrown to the world being portrayed.
