The Maid by Nita Prose
My rating: 4/5
Publisher: HarperCollins 
Publication date: 27th April 2023

It begins like any other day for Molly Gray, silently dusting her way through the luxury rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel.

But when she enters suite 401 and discovers an infamous guest dead in his bed, a very messy mystery begins to unfold. And Molly’s at the heart of it – because if anyone can uncover the secrets beneath the surface, the fingerprints amongst the filth – it’s the maid...

I didn't really know what to expect going into this book but I was intrigued by the synopsis. I expected it to be more like a thriller but it has a gorgeous theme of friendship and found family too as well as intrigue.

Our main character, Molly, is a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel. Her grandmother, who raised her, has recently passed away. She was also a maid and taught Molly everything she knows. Molly is very rigid and meticulous and people tend to think she is strange.

When businessman Charles Black is found dead by Molly in his suite, Molly finds herself embroiled in the case. The fact that she is a bit unusual does not bode well for her and her naiveté and innocence goes against her.

I absolutely loved the character of Molly. If you liked Eleanor Oliphant (Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine) and Sally Diamond (Strange Sally Diamond) you will love Molly too. The Maid is like a perfect little package. Everything is tied up and the plot and pace made me not want to put it down.
