Reviews & Articles featuring Attachments

Review from The Nerd Daily

“Part mystery, part love story, and wholly human, Attachments examines a number of themes which will resonate in the lives of parents, lovers, and friends. Arch considers both the unbreakable and the irreparable bonds—the attachments—between us all. He deftly probes how a single moment in time, just one choice, may ripple across the years in infinite ways.”

The Nerd Daily

Review: Attachments by Jeff Arch  – “He is the screenwriter of one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time: Sleepless in Seattle. There’s certainly a common thread of masterful storytelling and rich characters woven through both this new novel and his most iconic screenplay. Attachments even emanates some of the same pure sense of love as Sleepless in Seattle. Regardless of whether or not you are a fan of the film, though, you will certainly want to include Arch’s debut novel in your to-be read list this spring!”

She’s Full of Lit

“There’s not a lot of action here, but if you appreciate sharp dialogue and character-driven stories, I think you’ll like this one. A finely drawn love triangle that demonstrates the long-lasting ties friendship can have, with themes of grief and loss woven in as we get inside the characters’ heads.”
