Every once in a while, a one-of-a-kind character steps out of the pages of a book and into our hearts forever. Such is the case with Molly Gray, the charmingly eccentric hotel maid at the center of our January Spotlight Pick: The Maid by Nita Prose.
Molly is not like everyone else. She struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Her Gran used to interpret the world for her, but since Gran died a few months ago, 25-year-old Molly has been navigating life’s complexities all by herself.
But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters a suite at the Regency Grand Hotel where she works and finds the infamous and wealthy Charles Black dead in his bed. Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanor has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She has no idea how to untangle the web she’s been caught in—but fortunately, friends she never knew she had unite with her in a search for clues to find out what really happened to Mr. Black. Will they be able to find the real killer before it’s too late?
Join us to discuss our beloved Molly and this Clue-like locked-room mystery at our Virtual Happy Hour on Wednesday, January 26 at 7:30 p.m. ET on Zoom—featuring a special appearance from author Nita Prose. Save your spot today!
