5-Star Review: Chain of Title



An endless chain of explosive events and emotions from page one!

From the time Shayna Chastain signed on the dotted line, her comfortable life of twenty-five years took a seemingly legal subtle turn, then raced out of control like a careening ride on a runaway big rig without a brake and with an endless, descending mountain road ahead.

Robyn Roze, Author

Are you breathless yet? You will be for the next 357 pages of Chain of Title. Author Robyn Roze has established her writing voice, one that fills her novels with realistic characters fully equipped with flaws, aspirations, wants, and needs. Character motivations that swirl in conflict as the plot simmers and thickens.

Chain of Title is quality work delivering a unique set of characters that are distinctly different, and yet find themselves meshed in a common gravitational pull on a collision course headed for an exciting cataclysmic ending. Emotionally explosive reading!

After the devastation backdrop on the first few pages, of particular interest to me as a reader, was the vibrant resilience of forty-eight-year-old Shayna Chastain, who now faces life on the other side of mid-life. Yes, Shayna is challenged by the calendar, but dormant embers of emotion are set aflame, blazing into a youthful romantic renaissance like she’d never thought possible. And one unknown man provided the spark. But another is determined to snuff it out. And now the chain of choices facing Shayna are loosened by the author, and the reader is at their mercy also.


Author Roze masters dialogue that makes a reader want to listen in on every conversation, even the most intimate ones. Roze deserves a gold pen for giving us honest to goodness adult conversations and interactions, reflecting adult inner thoughts of her mature characters. How refreshing that is in the sea of silliness and immaturity that surrounds much of our current day media choices!

I commend Robyn Roze for her masterful romantic suspense, Chain of Title. Now that you jerked our “chain,” Ms. Roze, we’re hooked on your novels, and linked to your writing. While you decide where you’re taking us next in your writing world, I’m happy to hook another Five Stars to your growing collection!
