Blog tour: The Maid

Welcome to the blog tour for The Maid by Nita Prose!

More about the book…

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?

Escapist, charming and introducing a truly original heroine, The Maid is a story about how everyone deserves to be seen. And how the truth isn’t always black and white – it’s found in the dirtier, grey areas in between...

More about the author…

Nita Prose is a longtime editor, serving many bestselling authors and their books. She lives in Toronto, Canada, in a house that is only moderately clean.

My impressions…

Was it a page-turner? If I hadn’t had a sick wife and daughter the week I started reading The Maid, I would have happily finished it in one sitting. So, yes, it’s absolutely hard to put down.

Did the book meet my expectations? I thought the synopsis was intriguing but I couldn’t have expected such brilliant. Molly and her Gran are quite possibly my favourite characters of all time. I found the plot riveting and full of surprises but it was the cast of characters that made me fall in love with this novel. Not to mention the Regency Grand Hotel! I truly felt like I was there in person. I can’t wait to introduce Molly to all of my friends!

Three words to describe it. Elegant. Brilliant. Unforgettable.

Do I like the cover? I love it!

Have I read any other books by the same author? This is the author’s debut. And what a stunning debut it is!
