4.0 out of 5 stars Cosy Noir with Eleanor Oliphant vibes.
Reviewed in Australia on 17 March 2022
Who doesn’t love an unreliable narrator, especially one who’s a little bit on the spectrum, speaks like they’ve stepped out of a 1930 Agatha Christie novel and happens to be a maid in a very posh hotel?

Molly Gray, fastidious maid at the Regency Grand Hotel finds the body of a guest, Mr Black, stone cold dead in his swish suite. Molly’s trusting nature and naivety soon lands her in hot water when she becomes the main suspect in Mr Black’s murder.

When she’s arrested and charged, it seems all is lost. Molly, the oddball maid who takes life a little too literally, seems to be hiding something. Is she telling the truth? Or is she protecting someone? Or, is she just being targeted because she’s odd and convenient?

I wasn’t expecting the cosy mystery/feel good vibes given the blurb, but I really did enjoy this. Molly leads a cast of quirky, likeable characters.

Nita Prose did an excellent job of making the characters come to life and drawing us along in a page-turning mystery. I will admit I was a little disappointed when everything was wrapped up about 80% through the book - I really was expecting some bulging biceps, no-neck thug to step in an kidnap or attempt to kill Molly, but that didn’t happen.

There is a final unexpected twist at the end - I won’t spoil this because I do want you to go out and read this book. The feel of the book is part domestic thriller, part-cosy mystery and has strong Eleanor Oliphant vibes. I definitely recommend it if you want something a little different but with a few well-honed mystery/thriller tropes.
