Thank you for visiting me. We have something in common—books. I believe you love them as much as I do. I love books the way Lennie in Of Mice and Men loved his pet mouse. For this reason, I don’t advise you ever to lend me your prized first folio edition of Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories & Tragedies as I may return it dog-eared and enhanced with a shabby chic patina of Scotch tape.

As for my professional life, I work in the publishing industry. I began years ago as an intern, photocopying edited manuscripts and secretly snooping the fascinating margin conversations between editors and writers. Currently, I’m vice president and editorial director at Simon & Schuster in Toronto, Canada, where I have the privilege of working with an incredible array of authors and publishing colleagues whom I credit with teaching me, manuscript by manuscript, book by book, the wondrous craft of writing.

This is the second book in which Molly the Maid turns detective when there are 'goings on' in the hotel. Molly has been promoted to Head Maid, she wears a badge to prove it, and is now responsible for teaching others how to clean. We are most definitely in cozy crime country with these books. Molly, who has difficulties 'reading' people, notices things that others wouldn't and so that makes her an ideal detective although it has to be said, she also misses things.

An author dies at a conference in the hotel just as he is about to reveal a big secret and it turns out that he was poisoned. And just as in the first book, maids are often thought to be guilty. This time it is Lily, Molly's Maid-in-Training, that is under observation.

The book shifts between now and then to explore Molly's childhood and how it relates to the now. The chapters where this happens are prefaced with the word 'Before' making it quite clear and I suppose this was a device used now that the voice of Gran who Molly relied on so heavily to read the world has now gone.

This book isn't as good as The Maid although still enjoyable. It's not easy to write that second book.

A delightful cozy mystery with our neurodivergent main character. She was a bit less bumbling this time around, and the past timeline was delightful.

The story was fast paced and you never knew what was going to happen for sure. I got attached to Molly quite fast and I can only wish I was able to help her around! The rest of the cast was a bit one note but still very engaging.
