This was a lovely story with entertaining characters!
Just listened to this and thoroughly enjoyed it. I couldn‘t help but think of Amelia Bedelia occasionally. ❤️
“The Maid” started off slow, but when it picked up it was a great read. I initially was very frustrated because it was pretty obvious that Molly was getting taken advantage of and there were a couple plot points that I could guess at, but the way the story resolved was satisfying. I definitely enjoyed how every question I had during the story was answered and everything was tied up nicely by the epilogue.
A great, cozy read with a very lovable protagonist & fabulous discussions about inclusion, independence, & social invisibility. Wonderful writing style & characters. Molly's socially awkward character was handled very well & I loved her ability to love herself & make the world work for her. The plot is very creative & the tension was fantastic. A lighthearted mystery that would be an excellent travel read. An excellent debut novel that I loved.

This was a quick read that kept my attention and was the light-hearted story that I was looking for. Molly, a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel, finds herself caught up in a whodunit mystery. The lovable and quirky characters make this book a fun read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. I laughed and I cried- Molly the maid is so sincere and so naive. Most of the action takes place in a luxury hotel in an unnamed city. Maybe Toronto or New York. I lean towards Toronto. There‘s a murder and of course Molly finds the body - plot twists begin. A quick read that‘s almost a cozy with a narrator who sees things differently. 👍👍
It‘s so exciting to be sitting on my couch in the middle of the day on a weekday and getting to start my new #lmpbc book for May! My school has off for Eid- wishing a joyous day to all Littens who celebrate! I‘m surrounded by furry reading companions, and here we go…

I absolutely loved this book the writing and the main character Molly is a maid and loves her job she kinda of an old soul and speaks that way cause she was raised by her grandmother! When she goes to clean a very wealthy man‘s room she finds him dead! And she becomes a suspect! This book flowed so well I definitely recommend it! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Quote “ you didn‘t have to come to work your grandma just died she died I didn‘t”
I‘m really on the fence with this one. On one hand, I disliked Molly and we spend the whole book in her head, which was hard for me to stomach. On the other hand, there are some great secondary characters and the ending left me the kind of smile that reaches the eyes, even if it was a little ridiculous. There are also some real pearls of wisdom and insightful comments that I appreciated.
I have no words to describe this book. It‘s a fun and fast read and you find that the main character is quirky, naive and likable. Two thirds through the book, omg!!!! I can see why there‘s a movie already in the making. Good job Nita, good job. I applaud you 👏🏻 👏🏻👏🏻 #themaid #nitaprose #goodread #soontobemovie #mustread
The Maid is about a very hard working girl named Molly Gray, who is a maid at the Regency grand hotel. This mystery novel was written by Nita Prose. Molly loves her job but she often struggles with social cues and most of her coworkers find her very odd. Molly finds Mr.blacks dead body in the master suites one day, sadly Molly is one of the prime suspects of the murder, now she must figure out a way to prove her innocence.
4-2-22: My 30th finished book of 2022! Molly the maid loves her cleaning position at the Regency Grand Hotel. She takes it and life very seriously. She has lost her Gran and lives alone but loves her work until one day she finds a dead body in one of the suites. From there we are thrust into a murder mystery with many players attached. Molly has to prove her innocence and help catch a killer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣3️⃣0️⃣
My book club picked this one. I have to say I wasn‘t enamored. Sort of a cross between The Curious Incident of The Dog In the Nighttime, and A Gentleman in Moscow, with an ending I found pat and a little too tidy (even though it is a book about a…maid). I realize this may be an unpopular opinion…
I put this one aside 3x because of reading library books first. After reading two 5 🌟 books and one really good 4 🌟 one, there was no way this could hold up. I found Molly‘s character traits to be pushed too hard upon us, this tried too much to be like Eleanor Oliphant and the mystery was a touch predictable. But I read the majority of this one after Sarah Polley‘s book and Beartown. There‘s no way this could hold up to those.
Daisy and I spent an unexpectedly cold afternoon reading this delightful mystery for #LMPBC
The mystery part of it wasn‘t too mysterious, but I loved the main character, Molly. This is a fun one and I hope the rest of the group enjoys it.
I really enjoyed this story about Molly. The book had some choice twists that you could see coming but seeing the murder and crime through the eyes of someone on the spectrum was really well handled. Ultimately this was a happy ending story which was what I needed right now.
For my April #bookspinbingo selections, I am going to only read books I own. The reason for this is simple: my mastectomy is in early to mid April and I don‘t think I will be going to the library much that month and if I am unable to get there, I don‘t want to be stuck. Besides, I have my own personal library at home.
