    I loved the prologue! This book draws you with a prospective from a maid who works at a luxury hotel! Just by the way you leave your room each day, maids get a good idea of what kind of person you are and kind kind of habits you have, good or bad. Molly, the maid, is a quirky person who has a hard time with social cues and situations. She works at a luxury hotel with all kinds of interesting coworkers. Molly’s grandmother used to help Molly navigate social situations with advice. With the death of her grandmother, Molly feels alone and sometimes lost. Although she is good at recalling her grandmother’s advice, it’s not the same. Believe it or not, Molly loves her job. Molly’s world is turned upside down when she found a well known guest dead in his bed. Will she be open and honest like she comes across or will she try to protect those who are directly involved? As different hotel staff confide in her, including the wife of the dead guest, will this eventually catch up to her? This fun and smart mystery will have you turning the pages to find out how Molly handles and navigates this situation. A five star read that should be added to your TBR list! I was excited to find out from this author’s webpage that there are plans to have this book made into a movie!

  • Molly the Maid

    "Is this a good time for me to return your suite to a state of perfection?" Molly Gray is a hotel maid who has a vocation, not merely a job. She loves what she does and strives to do everything perfectly. She loves her hotel, she loves her uniform, she loves her maid's trolley, she even finds comfort in the invisibility her job affords her. On the "spectrum", she is appreciated by some and laughed at as weird by others. She is honest to a fault, is far too trusting, and is susceptible to being taken advantage of. She was raised by her grandmother who died recently, and she used to rely on her to interpret the confusing behavior of others. Gran always knew what to say, always had an adage to live by. "If you love your job, you'll never work a day in your life." One day Molly discovers the body of a "guest very dead in his bed," the millionaire Mr. Black. Through a series of complications Molly is arrested on a number of charges, including first-degree murder... and this interferes with her work schedule! She is the last person in the world you would suspect capable of such behavior and she has trouble comprehending how she landed in this predicament. It is impossible not to cheer for this character Nita Prose has found for us. Molly is adorable, totally honest, and she lacks any filters. It is ironic that a murder mystery delivers a needed break from today's headlines, but I recommend checking into "The Maid" for a brief stay. Columbo: Oh, there's just one more thing... I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

  • The Maid

    Molly is The Maid. Nita Prose gives us an interesting and delightful new type of hero/character in this refreshing story. I enjoyed reading Molly's thoughts on life that her gran taught her. Molly's life is fairly predictable until she discovers a dead body in a room she came in to clean. I want to thank Netgalley and Ballantine Books for an early copy to review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Soooo Good!

    Oh my goodness! I’m so excited about The Maid by Nita Prose. This was next on my schedule and became my Christmas Eve and Day read. It wasn’t a Christmas story but, it was perfect just the same. There are so many things about this debut novel to absolutely love. I can’t wait to read more from Nita Prose! The main character was Molly and she is a maid in an exclusive hotel. She finds a man in his room, dead in bed and is eventually a suspect for his murder along with several other charges. Molly seems to have been born with a disorder that does not allow her to interpret facial expressions and social norms. She speaks in an old fashioned way because she was raised by her Grandmother. People often misjudge her as not being very smart but, she is. I loved the characters in this book for who they were. Some were evil and some came to her defense. The character development by this author was superb. The story was narrated by Molly and I enjoyed how she presents her story. It was a nice ride. The story line was well developed and thought out. I don’t think I found anything that made me scratch my head. It all fit together like a perfectly cut jigsaw puzzle. Pick up a copy of this book and you will see what I am talking about. This was a well constructed detective/crime story story but, not told from the point of view of the detective. If you like these kind of stories or good old fashioned mysteries, you will definitely love this book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from #RandomHousePublishingGroup-Ballentine via #Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

  • A brilliantly written mystery

    Thanks to Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine and NetGalley for an advance digital reader copy. All comments and opinions are my own. #TheMaid #NetGalley This was a great read! So many clever and entertaining elements made this a brilliantly written mystery. Molly Gray is the eponymous maid, and the story begins just after her grandmother has died, leaving her to navigate life alone. She works at the Regency Grand Hotel, and soon learns that things are not as they seem. This is an ongoing issue for Molly, as she is "on the spectrum" and has trouble reading expressions and turns of phrase. But her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette make her an ideal fit for the job - which is to return each hotel room to a state of perfection. After discovering the body of wealthy repeat hotel guest Mr. Black, the story really takes off. Molly is considered a prime suspect, but of course we all know she isn't the murderer. Who can Molly trust? Who can she turn to for help in finding the real murderer and exonerating herself? Wonderfully written coincidences and connections help to fit all the pieces together until we have a heartwarming and charming story about friendship, perspective and trust. I highly recommend this!

    Thanks for your feedback!
