Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE WAKE-UP CALL by Beth O’Leary


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE WAKE-UP CALL by Beth O’Leary.  I’ve had such great luck with this author’s books in the past so I can’t wait to dive into her newest one.  I love an enemies/rivals to lovers story and this sounds like a fun one!


THE WAKE-UP CALL by Beth O’Leary

Publication Date: September 26, 2023

by Berkley


From Goodreads:

Two hotel receptionists—and arch-rivals—find a collection of old wedding rings and compete to return them to their owners, discovering their own love story along the way.

It’s the busiest season of the year, and Forest Manor Hotel is quite literally falling apart. So when Izzy and Lucas are given the same shift on the hotel’s front desk, they have no choice but to put their differences aside and see it through.

The hotel won’t stay afloat beyond Christmas without some sort of miracle. But when Izzy returns a guest’s lost wedding ring, the reward convinces management that this might be the way to fix everything. With four rings still sitting in the lost & found, the race is on for Izzy and Lucas to save their beloved hotel—and their jobs.

As their bitter rivalry turns into something much more complicated, Izzy and Lucas begin to wonder if there’s more at stake here than the hotel’s future. Can the two of them make it through the season with their hearts intact?

    What an entertaining premise! And lots of scope for more romance or otherwise in tracking down couples who lost wedding rings… Thank you for sharing, Suzanne:)).
