Hotel Portofino by J.P. O’Connell

The Maid by Nita Prose
A charming mystery with a heroine who is wonderfully neurodiverse. At the grand hotel where she is a maid, Molly is blissfully unaware of shady goings-on right in the very suites she restores to perfection each day. When she is drawn into a murder investigation, Molly must rely on the few genuine friends she has to help her clear her name and find the real killer. Molly is a very well-done character; her different way of communicating and reading other people’s intentions is written with such a positive spin that any reader will not only fall in love with Molly, but understand her.
