Heads will roll!

Paris, France: a city of fashion, chocolate croissants, and cute boys. Colette Iselin is thrilled be there for the first time, on her spring break class trip.

But a series of gruesome murders are taking place around the city, putting everyone on edge. And as she tours the sights, Colette keeps seeing a strange vision: a pale woman in a ball gown and powdered wig, who looks like Marie Antoinette.

Colette knows her status-obsessed friends won't believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Read This book is not going to go down in history as a great piece of literature, but it is a great book to read if you enjoy mysteries and history. I picked this book based on the title and brief synopsis in the back of the book and I was not disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good. Mysteries usually don't interest me, but the subject of Marie Antoinette always has fascinated me for many years. Katie Alender has created a fantastic tale of true friendship and mystery. First of all, I love this cover. I've had my eye on the book for a while, but I didn't know what to expect. What I got what pure greatness. The plot was very well set up and interesting. I enjoyed the character's perspective, and the whole story flowed together perfectly. I found some parts to be weird.. and I didn't know why I was reading this. The idea was kind of strange, and I don't imagine reality to be like this. A world is very difficult to create, but... This was okay. If you're a true-at-heart mystery lover, then this book is for you and for your true identity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For Mystery Fans Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer was a mystery story set in Paris. The whole Marie Antoinette thing was what made me interested in the story and I liked it. There were murders going on all over Paris and Colette had a feeling it had something to do with her. This is a story of friendship and love. Colette had to choose her own friends and all the while going on mystery solving time with the charming French boy. The mystery part was really great and I didn't really know why Marie Antoinette was killing all these people. The book also had some French in it (which I understood). Looks like all the French lessons at school paid off haha. Overall, this is quite a mediocore book but I would still encourage mystery fans to try it out.

Read from the Book

From Marie Antoinette, Serial KillerThen something caught my attention, at the corner of my eye - movement. A flash of pale colors moving in the shadows.I spun around.She was there. The woman - the ghost. The width of her skirt blocked the path in front of me completely. In the low light, it was obvious that she gave off a pale blue glow of her own, a light that seemed to undulate through her."Go away!" I said, as if she were a stray cat. "Go! Leave me alone!"A ripple seemed to move through her form, causing her glow to sputter and spark. I got the distinct impression that I'd made her angry."Please," I said. "Please move. Let me go."Finally, she moved -Toward me.
