 The fourth book of the year, I know right, who am I with all this time of my hands to read ha!. It was my mission to read a book a month and I am on a roll!. I have been slacking a little over the past few days with reading only a few pages as I am wiped with work but I thought I would share what I am currently reading.


Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Her gran used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live by. 

Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life's complexities all by herself. No matter—she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, makes her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection. 

But Molly's orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed. Before she knows what's happening, Molly's unusual demeanour has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle. Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had united with her in a search for clues to what really happened to Mr Black—but will they be able to find the real killer before it's too late? 

So I am a third into this one and 'Molly the maid' is a very strange character. I can't quite pinpoint what it is exactly but it is a little off-putting. Whether she is supposed to be portrayed like that or the writer is going a little off with the character, at this point, I am not sure but the story so far is really good.

The first chapter went straight into it and it is definitely one that has kept me guessing at every page.

Bargain of the books as this one costs me 70p!

I would love to know what you are reading this February :)
