Meet Quality Times, just your average 21st century woman who happens to own a shrinkable time machine. Along on her intergalactic adventures is Tim, a self-confessed sci-fi geek who takes everything in his stride.
The twosome accidentally became owners of a time travelling space ship after the death of its previous owner, and did what any normal, bored, humans would do - they learned how to pilot the craft and set sail for new worlds and old times.
Quality didn't know Tim before the ship came into their possession, and she'd rather stay strangers. But he's a surprisingly good ship pilot and she's a bit rubbish at it. But as soon as she becomes competent enough, Tim's going to get dumped on the nearest planet. Just don't tell him that.
In The Grandparent Trap, Quality Times and travelling companion, Tim, arrive in present-day England on a very important mission: to pay a long over-due visit to Quality’s grandmother, Nessie. But no sooner do they arrive than they learn of several elderly townsfolk having disappeared in recent weeks. Where have they gone? And what does it have to do with a new bus service in the area? Teaming up with a concerned grandchild, and a nosy neighbour, can Quality and Tim uncover the truth before it’s too late?
