In development as a major motion picture produced by and starring Florence Pugh

Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Her gran used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live by.

Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life’s complexities all by herself. No matter—she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, make her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.

But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed. Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanor has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle. Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had unite with her in a search for clues to what really happened to Mr. Black—but will they be able to find the real killer before it’s too late?

A Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different—and reveals that all mysteries can be solved through connection to the human heart.

The Maid (Nita Prose) Book Reviews

MehWas really hoping to get into this book but never really did - writing was very simple (like the main character) who i found a bit annoying — with her literalness of everything. Her naïveté to life around her was hard to believe. But it was an easy read while on vacation which was why i gave it 3 stars..Score: 3/5

Decent good read. I was hoping for a better ending..Score: 4/5

UghWell, if you like sappy, corny, stupid and preposterous books, you’ll LOVE this one. If not, take your money and spend it on a book that is more intellectually stimulating. You’ll thank me! Seriously..Score: 1/5

AWESOME!The Maid, Molly Gray, is a memorable character. An awesome page turner and great ending!! Loved it..Score: 5/5

GoodnessAn engaging, suspenseful portrait of otherness unlike anything I’ve ever read. The willing reader enters the day-to-day life of a fully drawn character from another world (mine at least) in her daily work, her relationships with others, her intimate and spiritual life, her struggle to understand the motivations of others. Sound like a goody-goody social justice treatise? Well, there’s a thriller-type mystery at the heart of the story with ethical quandaries and serious threats of danger. The Maid is wonderful..Score: 5/5

ExcellentI will read this again one day because it is one of these books that you will find something new every time. It rates up there with “Where The Crawdad Sings” in my top five.

Huh.An interesting book with many a twist and turn. Molly was a fascinating character who was far more intelligent than those in her world gave her credit for being.

A Perfect StoryAs far as Summer reads go, this is a fantastic book. Its story lulls along at a perfect pace, and my, what a story! The characters are perfect, especially Molly, the main character, who is by far one of the best written characters I’ve seen in a while. The way the story ties back into her Gran with her euphemisms is fantastic and pushes the story forward to an amazing twist at the end. The friendships are key in the story, and the mystery is waiting to be unfolded!.Score: 5/5
