9780006179245: Snare of Serpents

Only 17, Davina Glentyre is on trial for the murder of her father. Her happy life in Edinburgh had vanished in the wake of her mother's recent death. Her father seemed strangely different, dismissing Davina's devoted governess abruptly and hiring an unlikely replacement -- the lusty Zillah Grey, who soon became the new Mrs. Glentyre.

When the court returns an ambiguous verdict -- not proven -- Davina understands she has to leave her beloved Scotland. But secrets travel with her. More than her reputation is at stake...it's her life!

"The unsinkable Holt strikes again -- brisk, buoyant and, as ever, carrying a tonnage of people and perplexities with ease." (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Inside Flap:

Davina Glentyre's happy young life in Edinburgh was shattered by her mother's death and made even more unbearable by her father's sudden marriage to her new governess. Her one joy was her friendship with a poor but charming student, Jamie, whom her father forbade her to wed. When her father suddenly died from arsenic poisoning, the means, motive, and opportunity all pointed to Davina herself. Alone, she escaped to the colonies in Africa. But with the Boer War came danger and the return of dark secrets from the past that threatened her reputation and her very life . . .
