This one pulled me in two different directions. It‘s a mystery, but it‘s also a social commentary about how many treat those who they consider “different” or “outside the norm”. Molly is a hotel maid at a glitzy hotel and LOVES her job. Her beloved Gran has recently died and left her alone in a world she sometimes has difficulty interpreting (she would be diagnosed as on the spectrum, along the lines of Asperger‘s syndrome). Most of her 🔻

robinb coworkers ignore her or treat her as if she‘s an idiot. While at work one day, she discovers the body of a VIP guest in one of her rooms. Thus begins a plot in which she is setup as the patsy by some of those she trusted. There are some twists. And while she does get her day/justice by the end and begins to learn how to discern true friendship rather than subterfuge, 🔻 7d
robinb I felt sad and mentally and emotionally exhausted through much of the book at the awful way she is treated. She is a character that I won‘t soon forget. And her Gran (even though she was deceased) shone as a beacon in Molly‘s flashbacks…such a special relationship the two shared. I‘m exhausted but did enjoy it. 4.25/5⭐️ 7d

I haven't fallen in love with a character from a book in a long while, but I have now. Miss Molly Gray is such a delight. I gave the book 4 1/2 ⭐ for the simple reason, at the end, Prose added a few pages, I wish she hadn't. The book, to me, would have been a 5⭐. Pick up this book January 4, 2022.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and Prose for the Kindle Version of the book.

I enjoyed working out the mystery in this, although I was far more invested in Molly‘s outcome than anything else. I wanted only the best for her. I was in love with the way things were concluding and had it ended a few pages sooner, this would have been a five star read for me. However, those last few pages made me feel as if I‘d been betrayed by a friend.

“I pick up one neat quarter of my raisin bran muffin. How lovely. It‘s fresh. Isn‘t it interesting that this shop baked goods in the late afternoon? You wouldn‘t think many people would choose muffins in the afternoon, but there you have it. Perhaps there are others out there in the world just like me.” ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

abookishbutterfly @EvieBee I hope you enjoy it. I ended up being a bit disappointed with the ending, so now I‘m sad - haha. Well, at least I don‘t have to rearrange my favorites list, right? 4w

Molly struggles with social skills but her Gran helps interpret them. When her Gran passes away, Molly must learn to navigate daily life by herself. Molly works as a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel but her orderly life is thrown into chaos when she discovers an infamous and wealthy guest.
A story containing a heartwarming journey narrated by Molly. It contains a lovely cast of characters and touches on themes of identity, love and family. 4⭐️

LOVED this book and Molly the Maid.

FULL REVIEW 1/4

How could you not love Molly.

She is an endearing character obsessed with cleanliness, a rule follower, one who follows etiquette, but very naive.

Her naive personality had her framed for a murder of a guest, though.

A delight to read simply because Molly is someone you want to take under your wing and protect.

An amazing debut that will lift your spirits!! 5/5

• Thank you to Ballantine Books and NetGalley for providing this ARC. Expected publication date is January 4, 2022.

The Maid is the perfect cozy mystery. I immediately fell in love with our protagonist, Molly — I dare you not too. Molly is a maid (I know. Groan.) in a very posh hotel. One day she opens a room only to find the occupant dead. And that opens a series of hijinks for Molly and the rest of the exceptional characters in this story.

Alfoster Soooo good!👍❤️ 4mo
suvata @Alfoster It‘s great. Definitely put it on your TBR. 4mo

BoleyBooks @FelinesAndFelonies It‘s a fun read! I‘ll post a review soon. 😊 5mo
LiteraryinLawrence I‘ll be curious to hear what you think about the representation of her disability. Sometimes I worry about authors using autism as a quirky plot point rather than it feeling authentic. But this sounds promising! 5mo

This debut is like The Rosie Project meets Columbo (worth watching re-runs if you like crime drama). Molly is on the spectrum and a maid at the Regency who‘s been taught by her gran to always be polite—so much so that she doesn‘t pick up on social cues. But you will fall in love with her quirky character and her help in solving a murder!

Ruthiella I LOVE Colombo! ❤️ “Just one more thing...” 😁 5mo
Alfoster @Ruthiella OMG! Hubby and I watch every Sat night! And he can imitate that line from Columbo (actually it‘s getting old—don‘t tell him)!❤️😘 5mo
BkClubCare Sounds lovely 5mo
