Molly Gray loves cleaning and order. This works out well since she is a maid at the Regency Grand Hotel. Therefore, it is unfortunate when she finds the dead body of Charles Black, a wealthy business tycoon, in the hotel causing the biggest mess of her life. Molly has a literal view of the world and difficulty reading facial expressions. This has been a problem her whole life, but her recently deceased grandmother was always there to help her interpret the world. Now Molly is left to navigate on her own with the added complication of a possible high-profile murder case and other nefarious goings-on in the hotel. Into this mix are her co-workers whom she often has difficulty telling friend from foe. There is Rodney, the bar manager and possible romantic interest; Mr. Snow, the dedicated hotel manager; Cheryl, her tip stealing supervisor; Juan Manuel, the down on his luck dishwasher; and the friendly doorman, Mr. Preston.
Under pressure from the public, the police are anxious to close the case and Molly becomes a person of interest. Soon, Molly is running out of time to discover the truth and whom she can trust.
While Molly has trouble determining the true character of the people she interacts with throughout the story, the reader will find themselves yelling “don’t trust him or her!” But do not worry, Molly will straighten out this mess.
