The story was fast paced and you never knew what was going to happen for sure. I got attached to Molly quite fast and I can only wish I was able to help her around! The rest of the cast was a bit one note but still very engaging. ( )

Daawwww, what a fluffy, cozy mystery. ( )

This book was entertaining and a quick read. It read a bit like a children’s book for me for some reason. Perhaps everything seemed explained and a bit of a caricature? I’m not sure if this was the authors intent as the story is told from Molly’s view and Molly often sees things through the eyes of a child at times. I also think that’s why there isn’t a clear label for Molly as it’s being told from her standpoint and no one has come out and told her she was anything besides different, quirky or a weirdo. There wasn’t much of a mystery for the majority of the conclusion though I did not see the small twist at the end. I do like that the message is to embrace those with differences and not to judge because you do not often see what any individual is going through. ( )

Fun and funny book about hotel maid raised by her grandmother. Her grandmother raised with throwing idioms to live by causing Molly to be looked upon as odd. Molly cleans rooms at a posh hotel. When she finds a dead body in a room she cleans, she ends up being charged with murder. She calls upon the hotel doorman for help. He and his daughter help her to prove her innocence and in the process become a person to admire by her co-workers and management.
Kirkus: The shocking murder of a public figure at a high-end hotel has everyone guessing who the culprit might be.

Twenty-five-year-old Molly Gray, an eccentric young woman who's obsessed with cleaning but doesn't quite have the same ability to navigate social cues as those around her, loves working as a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel. Raised by her old-fashioned grandmother, who loved nothing more than cleaning and watching Columbo reruns, Molly has an overly polite and straightforward manner that can make her seem odd and off-putting to her colleagues despite her being the hardest worker at the hotel. After her grandmother's death, Molly's rigid life begins to lose some of its long-held balance, and when the infamous Mr. Charles Black, a rich and powerful businessman suspected of various criminal enterprises, is found murdered in one of the rooms she cleans, her whole world gets turned upside down. Before Molly knows what's happening, her odd demeanor has the police convinced she's guilty of the crime, and certain people at the hotel are a little too pleased about it. With the help of a few new friends (and while fending off new foes), she must begin to untangle the mystery of who really killed Mr. Black to get herself off the hook once and for all. Though the unusual ending might frustrate some readers, this unique debut will keep them reading.

A compelling take on the classic whodunit. ( )

Molly the maid is smart, polite, loyal and professional but awkward in a variety of social situations. One of her biggest problems is that she interprets things literally. If someone is simply nice to her she believes they are good friends. Because of misinterpreting people's actions she ends up in a frightening jam at The Regency Grand Hotel.

It is only with help from true friends that she is defended and her life improves on many levels but especially socially.

Good fun read.

The aptly pseudonymed debut novelist — her real name is Nita Pronovost — lands at No. 8 on the hardcover fiction list with “The Maid,” a rip-roaring mystery about a housekeeper at a five-star hotel who discovers a dead body in a penthouse suite. (Naturally, she becomes a prime suspect.) Our Crime columnist described the book as an “endearing debut,” with “real emotional heft” — but, for grounded travelers, it also provides a much-needed sojourn to the world of crisp sheets, room service and constantly replenished Crabtree & Evelyn shampoo.

The truth is, I often have trouble with 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. I make etiquette mistakes with alarming regularity, offend when I mean to compliment, misread body language, say the wrong thing at the wrong time. It's only because of my gran that I know a smile doesn't necessarily mean someone is happy.
Gran used to say, Never mind what others think; it's what you think that matters.
I don't cut corners, I shine them.
Treat others as you wish to be treated, Gran used to say, and that's a tenet I live by.
Cheryl may be my boss, but she's definitely not my superior. There is a difference, you know. You can't judge a person by the job they do or by their situation in life; you must judge a person by their actions.
