Marisol doesn’t fit the mold of the typical Beverly Hills maid. She’s poised and articulate, and her lack of an accent makes her suspect to those around her. She works in the home of Michael and Taylor Stappord, a newlywed Beverly Hills couple with a convoluted love history. Marisol proves herself invaluable—and not just when it comes to cleaning house. She didn’t expect to make friends when she took the job, but when Marisol meets the other maids from the neighborhood she finds herself surprised by their warmth, dedication and wit.
