The Maid

by Nita Prose is a cozy mystery with an engaging central character. Molly Gray works as a maid in the fancy Regency Grand Hotel, a job she is extremely happy with because it appeals to her sense of order and allows her to blend in. Molly is neurodivergent, meaning she has trouble reading social cues and can easily misinterpret people and situations. When she discovers a dead body in the penthouse suite, Molly becomes an immediate target for police suspicion, and she has to learn who she can trust. Molly’s narration is lively and the novel is a fun twist on the classic locked-room mystery.
