Chameleon (Ravensmoore Chronicles #2)

Title:  Chameleon (Ravensmoore Chronicles #2)
Author:  Jillian Kent
Pages:  293
Year:  2012
Publisher:  Realms
                This is a great sequel to Secrets of the Heart!  This book is set in London in the year 1818, toward the end of March.  Lord Ravensmoore plays a large role as a supporting character in this story, but the two main characters are Lord Jonathon Witt and Lady Victoria Whittington of Ravensmoore.
                Lord Witt was a spy for England during the war and barely escaped with his life from an attack of large dogs during the war.  One of his countrymen watched the attack and did nothing to help.  Who was it?  Now, back in society, he must still obey the king who wants him to investigate Lord Ravensmoore.  Lord Ravensmoore is a peer, yet he still practices as a physician.  This is unheard of during this time.  A peer did not work!  Lord Witt meets Lady Victoria while she is arriving from the country to visit her brother.  During the last leg of her trip, her carriage runs into someone.  The injured man appears to have been attacked by some wild animal.  Lord Witt happens to be out walking at this time and aids Lady Victoria in getting help for Lord Stone.  They spend a lot of time together discussing the attack on Lord Stone.  Soon Lord Witt has fallen under the spell of the beautiful Lady Victoria.  She has come to London for an adventure, and she certainly is going to get one!
                Lady Victoria Whittington has been ill and bedridden most of her childhood.  She learned to rely on God and her family for help.  Now that she is better and out of her bed, she is able to exercise her active mind and innate curiosity.  She helps her brother while he visits patients at Bedlam, an insane asylum, along with Lord Witt.  She finds Lord Witt handsome and intriguing.  Their investigation into the attack on Lord Stone leads them into different social situations and different adventurous activities.  Lady Victoria has long for romance and she finds it with Lord Witt.  Before they can declare their feelings for one another, Lord Witt arrests Lord Ravensmoore on a charge of being the person who instigated the attack on Lord Stone.  Is this the end of the budding romance for Lady Victoria and Lord Witt?  Who is responsible for these attacks on some of the members of Parliament?  Can Victoria continue to show Jonathon her reliance on God and lead him to know God as well?
                This story moves right along, and the ending will come as a surprise.  There is an excerpt from the third novel in the series included.  I recommend both books in this series.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy a trip to historical, jolly, old England!
                My rating is 5 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
