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.



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.

This book was entertaining and a quick read. It read a bit like a children’s book for me for some reason. Perhaps everything seemed explained and a bit of a caricature? I’m not sure if this was the authors intent as the story is told from Molly’s view and Molly often sees things through the eyes of a child at times. I also think that’s why there isn’t a clear label for Molly as it’s being told from her standpoint and no one has come out and told her she was anything besides different, quirky or a weirdo. There wasn’t much of a mystery for the majority of the conclusion though I did not see the small twist at the end. I do like that the message is to embrace those with differences and not to judge because you do not often see what any individual is going through.… (lisätietoja)

Nita Prose has created a character whose voice gets in my brain. I hear her and understand her and root for her on every page. She strives for perfection while understanding that it is a very high watermark. And because she has had difficulties and more, she is perfectly attuned to others and their faults, problems and struggles. I love this character, unabashed adoration. Prose has advanced Molly’s character in the four years since her debut in the original installment. Molly makes us aware that she started at the bottom and is on the ascendency. Yay Molly. She is “an employee who sustains an attitude of gratitude.” She is better at reading people which she does by noticing things differently than most. Her awareness of her deficiencies and attributes is breathtaking in its simplicity.

There were so many great twisty little turns that advanced the story and allowed you to keep understanding Molly’s character development. I am so looking forward to the next Molly the Maid Installment but until then I will hear Molly reciting Gran’s advice:
“Treat others the way you wish to be treated.
We’re all the same in different ways.
Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”

4-1/2 brilliantly shining stars. So Many thanks to Ballantine Books and NetGalley for a copy of Molly the Maid’s latest adventure.
