The Maid by Nita Prose

How could you not love Molly?

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

Molly lived with her grandmother and cleaned rooms at The Regency Grand Hotel. 

One day she found a dead body in the room she always cleaned
for a prominent man and his wife.

Molly’s eccentric demeanor and lack of knowledge about worldly things has her as the main suspect.

How can that be?  She is the most honest person there is, and she was friends with the dead man’s wife.

To add to her distress, she unknowingly is involved in a drug ring...they have her clean the room each morning.  

Friends do assist her after she gets arrested for the murder.  No one knows about the drug ring.

You will be with the characters as they try to help Molly out of her predicament and find the killer. 

You will also be with Molly and want to tell her to stop being so naive and so polite to everyone.  She goes overboard with her properness.

THE MAID is 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

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
