The Maid: A Novel

By Nita Prose

“A cozy mystery to take along on vacation . . . a lighthearted mystery that shines as Molly evolves and learns to connect.”The Washington Post

 

“Prose threads a steady needle with the intricate plotting, the locked-room elements of the mystery, and especially Molly’s character. . . . The reader comes to understand Molly’s worldview, and to sympathize with her longing to be accepted—a quest that gives The Maid real emotional heft.”The New York Times Book Review

 

“A charming, clever, and wholly original whodunit. I cheered and felt deeply for Molly the Maid—a complex and masterfully drawn protagonist I won’t soon forget.”—Andrea Bartz, New York Times bestselling author of We Were Never Here

 

“A heroine as loveable and quirky as Eleanor Oliphant, caught up in a crime worthy of Agatha Christie. Loved it!”—Clare Pooley, New York Times bestselling author of The Authenticity Project
