A mystery. In this clean time-travel whodunit, a middle-aged coffee-shop owner always wondered what his life would have been like if he'd stayed in town the day his college fiancee disappeared, the victim of an unsolved crime. One morning he wakes up 20 years earlier and finds himself a student at the University of Oklahoma again on the day she died. In a journey that takes months, he stumbles over people connected to Kim's disappearance and puzzles over connecting the dots. Oddly enough, things are different when he relives sections of his life. For example, as a teen he plays baseball and as an adult he discovers what it's like to be a Christian pastor, things he never did before. Can he find some answers about Kim and about his own life? Or prevent Kim's death? And if he succeeds in changing history, what happens to his wife and kids? Target audience: mystery fans, Oklahomans, Christians, baseball fans, male readers, romance readers. Debut author Bill Garrison lives the American Dream with his family of five in Oklahoma City. As a graduate of Oklahoma University, Bill works in the healthcare and accounting industry by day, but lives his creative side once he leaves the corporate world. After putting the kids to bed with a good story, he turns to his laptop and spins his daydreams into novels. Bill Garrison, CPA by day, story weaver by night.
