Molly Gray is my new favourite literary character and will, I’m sure, be one of the most talked about in 2022. In the meantime, I’ve never seen a more talked about proof – the hype around this book is to be fully believed!
It was a very easy five star read for me. Totally gripped from start to finish – this is a book about all the bits in between what’s said and what isn’t said. You’ll know what I mean when you start reading it. It’s about the blind spots, the red flags, we’ve all seen them and not seen them.
At the heart of the book is a ‘cosy’ mystery which is gripping but doesn’t detract from all of the underlying messages. Wonderful wonderful book! It’s a firm five star read, it has cosy mystery vibes and fans of Hazel Prior (Away with the Penguins) and Gail Honeyman (Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine) will most likely really enjoy Nita Prose’s writing style whilst Agatha Christie, Richard Osman and Janice Hallett fans will enjoy the mystery element! It really has something for everyone

About the Book…
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?
