What you need to know before your trail

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 who pass 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 so Molly becomes embroiled in a hunt for the truth, learning who to trust as she navigates the secret underbelly of the Regency Grand Hotel.

Travel Guide

Find your own Regency Grand Hotel

Travel to the hotel featured in The Maid by Nita Prose -AuthorsonLocation

The location in the novel is never made clear but that doesn’t matter as it’s the setting of te hotel that is key here. Find your own Regency Grand  – there’s a few ideas on the map to get you started

“I am your maid. I know so much about you. But when it comes down to it: what is it that you know about me.”

Molly has a mantra

“Never leave a mess to be discovered by a guest.”

It’s a quirky idea and one that the author got when staying in a hotel in London and she returned to find her maid cleaning and handling an item of her clothing. That made her think that she and the maid had never met but this mysterious housekeeper knew so much about her yet she knew nothing about her.

Next time you stay in a hotel room, just think  of what your possessions, mess and general habits are saying about you…( and be nice to your housekeeping team!)

Oh and don’t forget to watch old episodes of Columbo. Columbo episodes she watched with her Gran help Molly see things in a very unique and clever way.
