Read full description of the books The Judas Kiss:"I was seventeen years old before I discovered that my sister had been murdered.
Long story short (I hope). Pippa Ewell and her older sister are orphaned and leave their island home to come live with their parsimonious grandfather in England (grandma's pretty cool though). The grandfather wants to marry his nephew and heir to the oldest girl (I think her name was Francine, but the book is at home), but she has other ideas and runs off with a dashing nobleman, who is the heir-apparent of some tiny Bavarian principality or another. The marriage is kept a big secret, as is the child of the marriage (or was there a marriage and a child?).
Oh hell, it's too complicated to explain it all. Events happen in England that leave Pippa at leisure to travel to Bavaria and investigate her sister's death and locate the child that everyone swears never existed. Plus there's the lover she had in England that she thought was a servant of sorts to the royal family that turns out to be the new heir to the old Duke (or whatever he was).
Phew, I yield trying to recap this. It was a lot of fun, and a nice change of setting from most of Holt's books.
