Colette Iselin is excited to go to Paris on a class trip. She’ll get to soak up the beauty and culture, and maybe even learn something about her family’s French roots.

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

Colette knows her popular, status-obsessed friends won’t believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy. Together, they uncover a shocking secret involving a dark, hidden history. When Colette realizes she herself may hold the key to the mystery, her own life is suddenly in danger . . .

Acclaimed author Katie Alender brings heart-stopping suspense to this story of revenge, betrayal, intrigue — and one killer queen.

{My Thoughts} – I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fast paced, romance, engaging, had a bit of mystery, history and teenage drama.

Colette is apparently an a middle class teenager that is taking her first trip to Paris for a class field trip. She has two best friends Hannah and Pilar that fall on the rich scale. It has been months since Colette shared the same status and was only allowed to continue attending her school with her friends because she was accepted for a scholarship. This also makes things difficult for her when they go shopping together because she can’t just spend what she’d like, in most cases she doesn’t have the funds to waste.

When they get to Paris with their class they learn that there has been a murder in which a teen had been beheaded. This murder advances into a string of serial killings in which the killer has been unable to be identified. The string of murders start to lead Colette and a classmate Audrey as well as their tour guide on a mission to find out exactly what is going to be taking place and why things are taking place.

This book was a very nice read. If you’d like to know what takes place inside it’s pages: I’d suggest reading it. A lot happens in such a short amount of time a lot of things that you wouldn’t ordinarily think would take place.
