The Maid was one of my three picks for January’s BOTM, and I was tickled to see it as one of the options. Granted, this is also one of those books that I’ve been looking forward to for months now, so getting my hands on it was always going to make me happy!

Molly Gray has always needed a little extra help interpreting the world around her. Thankfully, Molly has found the perfect job for herself: being a maid. This job lets her take control of the world around her, polishing it all until it is perfect.
The Maid was a delightful read, one that kept me invested from the first page all the way to the very end. This book very much felt like a nostalgic blend of Clue and Knives Out. And I loved that combination so much!

Earlier I mentioned that this was a book with high expectations – for me, at least. I literally counted down the days until it was in my hands. So, did it live up to my expectations? I would give that answer a resounding yes!

Part of me hopes that we’ll get a chance to see The Maid retold on the big screen. Something tells me that it would lend well to adaptation, though perhaps that is just me getting my hopes up once again.
