Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer Marie Antoinette Serial Killer

Author: Katie Alender
Publisher: Scholastic
Release Date: September 24, 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.


Why I'm Excited:

I'm pretty sure that title says it all. I love books that uncover dark, secret histories. And I seriously love this cover. The candy colors. The blurb that "Heads Will Roll." This looks hilarious.

What about you? What are you waiting for on this Wednesday in Spring? Link me up!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
