The Maid by Nita Prose is a murder mystery that is smart, quirky and uplifting. This book is generating a lot of buzz as a book club pick, international bestseller and will have a film adaptation in the future. When I discovered that the author works in the Canadian publishing world, I knew I had to read it. She’s got to know how to write, right?! With gushing endorsements by popular authors Ashley Audrain and Karma Brown, I devoured this book in one sitting.
Molly Gray is not your average hotel maid. She follows the rules to a T, has very specific routines, recites company rules verbatim in every applicable situation and thankfully has a grandmother who helps her navigate all the social cues she misses. Molly remains steadfast in her routines even after the unfortunate passing of her beloved Gran. Her life is orderly and organized. Until one day it isn’t.
After finding a wealthy hotel guest dead in his bed, Molly becomes the prime suspect. Without the ability to untangle the web of deception around the murder, Molly has to rely on friends she didn’t know she had to clear her name. Readers will be delighted and charmed as they navigate the Clue-like plot to the satisfying ending.
Perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, When We Were Vikings and The Thursday Murder Club.
