In this audiobook presented by an ensemble of narrators, a girls' trip to a chateau in Provence quickly goes awry after Séraphine, grandmother of one of the girls and owner of the chateau, is found murdered in her bed. The tightly woven plot's backstories are told from the viewpoints of the protagonists, with different narrators voicing each one. The seven narrators are well matched to each other and the tone of the story, with each confidently using French accents where necessary. While many of the female voices are similar, the narration of the story from Séraphine's point of view by Jackie Sanders stands out. Her pitch and tone conjure up the image of an indomitable grande dame. The multiple narrators help the listener keep track of the various points of view.
