A sharp andwarm-hearted debut novel with an unforgettable protagonist you can't help but root for.
Noelle is an efficient, friendly hotel cleaner--a model employee. Or so she'd have you think . . . trouble is, she can't help but take little "souvenirs" from the rooms she cleans. Nothing of value--a lipstick, a hair clip, some tweezers. By the time the guest has noticed, she's long gone. As Noelle begins work at her twenty-first hotel, she's determined to last longer than her record of one month in the job. But then she meets her new colleagues. These women are real: they live lives full of happiness and worry, pain and joy. They make her wonder what it might be like to have true friends, people to stick round for--and someone to love. . . . Will they give her the courage to claim the life she deserves, or will her old habits come back to haunt her?
Whether you're looking for your next beach read or need to pick the next title for your local book club, this quirky and endearing tale of love and friendship is perfect for anyone who enjoyed the setting of The Maid by Nita Prose or who appreciates the relatable female characters in books by Beth Harbison or Sophie Kinsella.
