Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender

"Let Them Eat Cake... And Die!"


The most important thing in Colette's life is her social standing, something that depends directly on her family's wealth and her friendship with Hannah, the most popular girl at her expensive school. But now her life is being turned upside down by her parents divorce, no longer will she live in the big house surrounded by expensive things, now she is forced into a small apartment with her poor mother and annoying brother. How could her life get any worse?

The one good thing in Colette's life right now is her school trip to Paris, with its promise of romance and high fashion this will be best trip of her life, so long as she can hid the fact that she, and her family, are no longer wealthy. A task that proves harder then she anticipated due to her visions of a woman in a powdered wig and elaborate ball gown, a woman who seems to be at the heart of a recent serial killing spree, and it looks as though Colette may be her next victim.

Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer brings to life a Queen from the past, out for revenge on the descendants of those who have wronged her. A story of a superficial girl, history, romance and death set in the heart of France. Colette is a girl as self centred and materialistic as her so called friend Hannah, and although there is a cute French boy to show her the way, it will take a serial killer for her to appreciate the finer things in life. A book that becomes more involving with each chapter read.
