Lauren Ambrose returns as narrator of this sequel to Prose's first wildly popular cozy mystery, THE MAID. Ambrose is a charming actor and performs here with enthusiasm and heart, clearly wishing our heroine Molly well as she copes with (gasp) another murder at the fancy hotel where she is now head of housekeeping. Molly is neurodivergent and knows it. Hers is the voice of one who misses social cues and has to figure out what's going on with dogged reasoning. Dogged is hard, but Ambrose does her best. Her best is lively and warm, though she lacks some of the vocal technique that more experienced voice actors use to distinguish different ages and genders. Still, fans of the first Maid book will be entertained. B.G. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
