The Maid

The Maid


I am your maid.

I know about your secrets. Your dirty laundry.

But what do you know about me?

Molly the maid is all alone in the world. A nobody. She’s used to being invisible in her job at the Regency Grand Hotel, plumping pillows and wiping away the grime, dust and secrets of the guests passing through. She’s just a maid – why should anyone take notice?

But Molly is thrown into the spotlight when she discovers an infamous guest, Mr Black, very dead in his bed. This isn’t a mess that can be easily cleaned up. And as Molly becomes embroiled in the hunt for the truth, following the clues whispering in the hallways of the Regency Grand, she discovers a power she never knew was there. She’s just a maid – but what can she see that others overlook?

Escapist, charming and introducing a truly original heroine, The Maid is a story about how the truth isn’t always black and white – it’s found in the dirtier, grey areas in between . . .

Our Review

The Maid by Nita Prose had me hooked from the beginning. 

"I'm your maid. I'm the one who cleans your hotel room, who enters like a phanton when you're out gallivanting for the day, no care at all about what you've left behind, the mess, or what I might see when you've gone....

I am your maid. I know so much about you. But when it comes down to it: what is it that you know about me?"

Molly is a maid at The Regency Grand Hotel. Molly finds it hard to know the correct way to act in social situations and she loves her job because the rules are clearly outlined for her. Since her beloved Gran died the hotel has been her refuge, a safe space. All this changes when she discovers the body of a guest.

"The truth is, I often have trouble with the social situations, it's as though everyone is playing an elaborate game with complex rules they all know, but I'm always playing for the first time."

The Maid is witty and insightful and the author has created a loveable protagonist. There were times when I wanted to warn her of things that we blatantly obvious but I think her naivity only added to her charm. 

An excellent book with a unique protagonist, I can promise you won't regret reading this book.
