The Wake-Up Call Beth O’Leary

The Wake-Up Call Beth O'Leary


Two sworn enemies. A failing hotel. One chance to save the season…

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 lost property, 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?

Why We Loved It

Thank you Beth O’Leary for doing it again! The Wake-Up Call is the most delightful, heartwarming, romantic, utterly gorgeous book! 

We love Beth’s writing, and this is the most wonderful feel-good example, her lead characters are beautifully created, the setting is magical, and this is a perfect book to transport you away for a few hours and to emerge smiling.

The Wake-Up Call is an utterly charming, uplifting, wonderfully escapist read. We absolutely loved it! 

One of our Favourite Fiction Books of 2023. Very Highly Recommended!
