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?
The Maid has had so much hype surrounding it and I have to say, it totally lives up to it! Molly is one of those characters that instantly becomes an all time favourite. She is brilliantly quirky, undeniably charming and hilarious. Molly is a maid at the luxury Regency Grand Hotel and takes a great deal of pride in her position. She is meticulous when it comes to cleaning but does sometimes struggle to interpret certain aspects of social convention. When she finds a VIP guest dead in his bed, she is drawn into a murky murder investigation.
I really can’t praise The Maid highly enough. I loved pretty much everything about it – the characters, the mystery, the relationships and the setting are all skilfully portrayed and totally engrossing from start to finish. Beautifully written and full of charm, heart and humour, The Maid is not to be missed. Perfection!
I kindly received a copy of the book from the publisher. My review is entirely my own honest opinion.
