It would be easy to underestimate Molly Gray. As a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel, she unashamedly strives to return things to a 'state of perfection'. But when one of the guests - the notorious Mr Black - is found murdered in his hotel bed, Molly's unique take on the world comes to the fore.
Weaving an enjoyable morality tale through a classic whodunnit, this is an intriguing contemporary mystery with a very distinctive protagonist.
Delightful read with food for thought.
Thought the story was good but the character descriptions were lazy, and relied on cliches and generalisations.
Variation of opinions. Easy to read, with themes making the detective/Agatha Christie style, relevant and thought provoking. Some thought it a bit like other stories.
This book had a 100% enjoyment factor for all members. We loved the main character, and her personality traits were recognised by some members.
About half our group realised that Molly (the maid) was on the autism spectrum, and read the novel in that context. Everyone enjoyed it as a good read, a 'whodunnit', or a murder mystery, and the happy final resolution pleased everyone.
Very much enjoyed by our group. Very endearing character. Well-written.
Thoroughly enjoyed by all readers. Molly the Maid in first person was very thorough in telling her story. Excellent descriptive writing and a great plot. We didn't think it was demeaning to those on the Asperger's spectrum.
