Review: The Maid

The Maid
The Maid by Nita Prose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved every minute I spent with this novel.

This story is told from the perspective of a Maid who works at a fancy hotel. She finds one of the guests in his room, dead. The story unfolds from there to tell you the before and after. This maid, Molly, has a very ordered, specific life she lives and her life and the order the clings on to is completely upended as a result of her discovery.

Molly is very, very good at what she does and she lives by a strong work ethic and moral code. She is unusual and doesn’t always follow what’s going on or understand enough of the world to read between the lines. This means that sometimes people can take advantage of her.

This story has a little bit of everything. There are unexpected twists and turns. There is joy and kindness and disappointment and deep unkindness. It’s a story with so much heart that it’s not possible not to love it.

with gratitude to netgalley and Ballantine Books for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
