Molly the maid was brought up by her grandmother who understood perfectly Molly’s unique take on the world. Since her grandmother died though, Molly has been all alone in the world, an invisible nobody. She’s also unseen in her job at the Regency Grand Hotel, making beds and wiping away the dust, grime and secrets of the guests passing through. Molly’s life is changed forever though when she is thrown into the spotlight after discovering an infamous guest, Mr Black, dead in his bed. As she becomes enmeshed in the search for the truth Molly discovers a power she never knew she had. Molly is merely a maid but what can she see that others overlook?
Deftly and beautifully written with a colourful cast of characters, The Maid is original, fresh and utterly gripping. I couldn’t put it down and look forward to more novels from this debut author.
