"Waiting On" Wednesday: A Small Hotel

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

A Small Hotel
By Robert Olen Butler
Publication Date: July 5

From Amazon:

Set in contemporary New Orleans but working its way back in time, A Small Hotel chronicles the relationship between Michael and Kelly Hays, who have decided to separate after 24 years of marriage. The book begins on the day that the Hays are to finalize their divorce. Kelly is due to be in court, but instead she drives from her home in Pensacola, Florida, across the panhandle to New Orleans and checks into Room 303 at the Olivier House in the city’s French Quarter—the hotel where she and Michael fell in love some 25 years earlier and where she now finds herself about to make a decision that will forever affect her, Michael, and their 19-year-old daughter, Samantha.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I like the cover and the setting, but the premise sets up too much like romantic fiction. I'm a bit scared off by that....
