About the Live, In-Person, Adventure

Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanor 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.

Does that riveting excerpt already have you on the edge of your seat? Then come meet New York Times bestselling author Nita Prose, the 2024 Carlsbad City Library Reads Together featured author, as she discusses her bestselling murder mystery novel, The Maid, in conversation with ABTB founder Susan McBeth.

Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different–and reveals that all mysteries can be solved through connection to the human heart.
