Six friends celebrate their graduation from Oxford University at a farmhouse in France. The last night of their alcohol-fueled party turns disastrous after an uninvited nineteen-year-old neighbor goes missing from the house. The female, named Severine, had driven a wedge between the friends with her sexy looks and flirty disposition. The women felt threatened by the younger woman while the men returned her attention. After an investigation, it is not clear if anyone at the farmhouse had anything to do with her disappearance.
Ten years later, Severine’s body is found in a well outside of the farmhouse. Each of the friends is questioned by a French detective. Kate Channing is not concerned with the investigation but begins to unravel after repeated interrogations. Accusations and frictions slowly grow as each group member reveals what they remember from that night.
The French Girl is a debut novel by Lexie Elliott. I enjoyed this book and was quickly pulled into the story after reading the first chapter. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
