The fete was organized by the sisters, so that Beatrice would have been NOTRE cousine rather then MA cousine. I recognized that the exercise said "my cousin" but I figured that as they (sisters) were making it, the cousin would have been one of both of theirs. I guess I overthought what was being asked.....

I haven't seen the text that you are querying but it occurred to me that the two sisters could refer to a cousin either with respect to them together "notre" or each in their own right "ma" cousine.
Just a thought, hope that this is helpful.
Salut Carol, you're right that Beatrice is the cousin of both Emma and her sister, but only Emma is speaking. She says 'my' but I don't think it would have been wrong if she'd said 'our cousin', in either French or English.
I think you are correct and it has been flagged up for correction ...
