Friday 56 (5)

Today’s meme is the THE FRIDAY 56.  My first 56 for 2018!  The only rules are to grab a book, any book, turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader,  find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it), post it, then add your URL to the Linky on the host site Freda’s Voice – easy peasy!

I’m featuring Page 156 from The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman by Mamen Sánchez.

This feel-good read follows a tightly wound Englishman whose trip to Madrid takes an unexpected turn when he encounters a group of strong-minded women who will do anything to keep the jobs they love.  Atticus Craftsman never travels without a supply of Earl Grey, an electric kettle, and a teacup—so he makes sure he has packed all three after his father sends him to Madrid to shut down a failing literary magazine, Librarte. But when nobody has heard from Atticus in three months, his father knows something must be very wrong.

Fortunately, Inspector Manchego is on the case. Manchego gets to work unraveling the mystery of the Englishman’s disappearance, but there to block him at every turn are the five fiery and close-knit Spanish women who run Librarte and who must devise a plan to save the magazine.
Sánchez spellbinds with larger-than-life characters and heartfelt emotions in this charming tale of clashing cultures and unlikely romance.

I never found you,” the inspector went on.  “But in the end the case solved itself.  With the help of the man who ran the post office, who was, of course, the father of the girl who ran away with her boyfriend and the money- I don’t know if you heard about that.


Happy Friday!

What’s your 56 today?
