If You Like Nita Prose Books, You’ll Love…

Nita Prose Synopsis: The Maid is a standalone novel by Nita Prose. Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She lacks social skills and has difficulty reading the intentions of others. Her grandmother used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live by.

Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life’s complexities all on her own. Regardless, she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, make her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.

But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed. Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanor has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle. Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had work with her in a search for clues to what really happened to Mr. Black – but will they be able to find the real killer before it’s too late?

    I am reading this book in our Book Club. Love, love your book. I can not put it down. Please write more. Thank you

    I have just finished reading your book. I started it yesterday and when I was halfway through I couldn’t put it down!! I know I should be doing other important things, but I couldn’t help myself!!!😉

    I am thrilled that they are already making it into a movie! We are reading it in my Book Club and I’m anxious to share it with them. I loved that your maid had special qualities and how others around her perceived her. I loved the quotes her Gran taught her. And I loved how it ended!! And how we all have our own perceptions and our own view of truth.

    I’ll be excited to follow your career and look forward to more of your books!
    Love how you promote apathy and acceptance! Kudos!!

    An avid reader and fan,
    Sandi Graff
