The Judas Kiss by Victoria Holt
As a long time Holt reader, I thought I’d read everything; in truth, I’ve probably only read a dozen or so of her literally dozens of books under various names. Pippa is out walking the grounds when she discovers the neighbors will be visiting again soon and she meets Conrad who traveled ahead he sweeps he off her feet and he knows of her sisters murder she tells him of her marriage and child which Conrad explains that she could have never married nor was there a child.
Decent read voctoria a tad far-fetched with the sister going victofia with a man who ends up being the “prince” of his country and they both die. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Vidtoria only 4 stars because I just didn’t like the main male love interest.
This book was so beautifully green. Refresh and try again. Her obsession with her sister really got to me. Death, Love and Mystery in Bavaria! When the sisters were still young, their father and mother died and they were sent to London to live with their stern grandfather in the forbidding Greystone Manor. Pippa has learned of her sister’s death and decides she must also leave. Would love to read it again!

Francine rants to Pippa she will never marry him she will leave first, she does victodia have long and a family that visits periodically shows up to open their home for a visit the girls decide to investigate the family who is German and they are discovered in the home.
There was some kind of brutality and brilliance in it that I loved, and I completely lost myself within the words, but most all, I remember as it was yesterday, how I used to mentally hide myself inside that spectacular forest of Bavaria.
The story returns to the girls beo and we learn they lived on their parents on an island after his father left his home when he pursued being an artist which was against his father’s wishes. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. But Pippa returned to find the truth behind her sister’s mysterious death. Classic Victoria Holt, with intrigue, dukes and duchesses, servants and friends all just a little more than meets the eye.
Pippa Ewell had left behind the dark and forbidding Greystone Manor — also the memories of Conrad, the handsome stranger who had swept her breathlessly into his arms and heart.
Sep 13, Sandeep Sandhu rated victotia liked it. Essentially, this is a perfect blend of light and dark, sugar and spice. I’d been put off her as an author after several failed attempts at ‘The Night of the Seventh Moon’ but then I picked up Mistress of Mellyn and realised I’d been unfair.
But the characters are artificial and made of cardboard, and the solution to the moral dilemma of the book – when is adultery not adultery? But she rebelled and married a baron from Bavaria in Germany who swept her away from England. As a young girl, Pippa Ewell lived on an island with her sculptor father and sickly mother and her older and more beautiful sister, Francine, who she loved. The characters as always are well conceived, and the periods of culture and history are well researched and imparted with a minimum of fuss.

Since her sister abandoned her duties at Greystone Manor Pippa learns her grandfather plans for her to marry Arthur now. View all 5 comments. One of my all-time favorite VH books! A pleasant enough little costumer, enough to while away a couple of lazy hours, but shallow.

Pleased to state that I was surprised by some revelations, while other matters that I thought were obvious turned out to be red herrings.
The mystery slowly unravels to reveal much and Holt gives the reader some unexpected twists. A fun “beach read” novel. Essen I picked up this book at a charity sale with no idea about Victoria Holt or any of her books, personalities and characters. And this is the one I’ve liked the best so far. The girls are welcomed and invited to the a ball they will be hosting.
Books by Victoria Holt. Chief weakness of the story is perhaps the first-person narration – although it is the easiest way to build suspense and mystery, the heroine seems curiously victooria and we don’t get enough emotion described, yes; depicted, no at horrific events like the murder of her sister.
The sleeve was issued in the eighties, and was quite corny – not really living up to the intensity of the plot.
