“What a fabulous read! It’s rare to find a comic novel anywhere, especially one with such unexpected and appealing characters. I can see it as a great musical, but much more outrageous than MAMMA MIA!. Written with verve and wit!”
- Frances Mayes, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, Under the Tuscan Sun

“There is no denying the energy and charm that set this novel apart from the pack... A novel that defies categorization.”
- Kirkus Reviews (US)

“For Anglophiles and lovers of everything British, this literary dive into a genuinely quirky and amusing English mystery will leave you delighted…This laughter-inducing adventure of the journey to save Atticus will leave readers with a warm heart and a craving for English tea.”
- Popsugar

“A charming story that works its way into your heart.”
- Journey of a Bookseller (UK)

"Humorous, romantic, and utterly charming, The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman is a getaway in book form.”
- Inside Chicos

"Sanchez knows how to tell a story as well as how to make sure her characters have spark and depth—a real delight."
- Lit Hub review:

"FIVE STARS!!! This book was fun. I noticed in the bio that the author has written other books. I hope they are as good as this one and that they will be translated into English before long. I don't think this book will be for everyone--as the humour is very quiet but I absolutely loved it."
