Summary:
Colette has been looking forward to her class trip to Paris, and hopes to find out more about her family's French heritage. As she visits sites around Paris, she begins to see a women dressed like Marie Antoinette, little does she know this ghost has plans for her.

Review:
This is a fun light romp with a little bit of horror mixed in. While it was a fun read, I felt it lacked the depth to elicit any real fear of the ghost. People are dying, losing their heads in mysterious accidents. Colette was a hard character to like. Her taste in friends is terrible and she is so obsessed with her social status, she doesn't care who she hurts. While her character does grow throughout the novel, I still found her hard to empathize with as I felt that every situation she was in was her own fault, with the exception of her ghostly stalker.

Overall:
Overall, this book was okay, but there are better horror novels out there. I really wish I could have liked the main character--that would have made this a better read for me.

Cautions for sensitive readers:
Violence: Yes
Language: Mild
Drugs/Alcohol: Some drinking
