Critic Reviews

"With The Maid comes an exciting and formidable new voice. A gripping and heart-warming whodunnit narrated by an intriguing and original heroine. Skillfully layered and masterfully told. I loved it." (Santa Montefiore)

"This is a fabulous debut, deftly written...I loved following Molly the maid’s struggle to make sense of the world and cheered on those who showed her kindness. The Maid is a delight from start to finish." (Jill Mansell)

"Unlike anything else I’ve read, this kept me up way past lights out. The protagonist is completely original and very endearing. Thoroughly recommend." (Katie Fforde)

An incredibly well written, enjoyable book

I felt the narrator bring the characters to life. The story was excellent and was very clever with twists right to the end. Loved it

Best of 200+ audiobooks

My library spans over 200 titles - and if I had to recommend my top three this book would be among them!
So refreshingly different!
The spotless mind of this OCD lovable young maid is such a well written character.

Lovely enthralling read

The character of Molly drew me in and kept the story rolling nicely! I enjoyed the description of the main character immensely and the plot of the story held me in suspension till the end! Very good read!
