Book Review: The Maid by Nita Prose


Coming in January of 2022 is The Maid, the debut novel by Nita Prose. I had the opportunity to read an advanced copy of the galley in exchange for an honest review.

Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Since her 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. 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.
