The Romance Studio: "Shonna Brannon has written an exceptional story. It will engulf the reader from page one and not let go until the end. This is one that had me thinking about it days later. This story was so well written, with Karen and Nick being such lovable, caring characters. I felt as if I knew them. I would recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a great suspenseful, sexy, love story."

In the Nick of Time is about learning to love, trust, and just finding that certain someone to make a difference. The reactions of Karen with her upbringing and the emotions of Nick with his mistrust of women is feasibly seen in the pages. When he was holding Sierra for the first time, it was so heartwarming. Ms. Brannon stirs a stimulating read that really pulls the reader into the intense storyline. She creates an enjoyable read with just the right amount of romance and suspense."

FAR: 4 Angels
"Shonna Brannon creates believable characters, conflict, and a slight bit of suspense in In The Nick of Time. The relationship with Karen’s parents is reality to some families. The abuse her Mother and Karen have dealt with since Karen was young is the reason Karen doesn’t trust easily. Finally at the end of In The Nick of Time Nick realizes how he was blinded in the past but that’s what brings him to Karen. Shonna Brannon is a consummate romance writer and A-1 at the happily ever after some of us readers love!"

Joyfully Reviewed: "In the Nick of Time is the first novel I have read by Shonna Brannon. I found myself screaming at my palm pilot because of the way the plot flowed, but in a good way. I wanted to take Amanda out in the worst way. I have to admire Nick for the way he accepted Karen and their child into his life. I thought him quite dreamy.
In the Nick of Time is a great story. Intriguing and suspenseful, I read it cover to cover. I am hoping Ms. Brannon releases something else soon because she is officially on my list of authors to watch."

"Shonna Brannon creates a divine and truly awesome story that captured my interest with the first page and as I read I was sucked up in the scenario, drawn to both Karen's and Nick's problems. In The Nick of Time is filled with suspense and hot sex to keep your squirming yet you cannot put this book down to get ice. How Karen held it all together, I don’t know but I wonder and marvel at her strength. It is a must read and a keeper, I look forward to reading more from this very promising author. "

Wild Child Publishing: Reviewer Annie Haws gave it 4 cats. "In the Nick of Time is a tantalising contemporary romance with unexpected and startling plot twists which will captivate any reader's attention. The deep background of the characters is a welcome addition, as the author takes care to bring each individual to life for the reader. Nick and Karen, as well as Karen's mother, are characters who will incite the reader's empathy; and even the less likable characters, such as Karen's father, and the mysterious and elusive stalker, are understandable people.Author Shonna Brannon has written a story with a wide range of appel, to readers of romance, contemporary, and suspense novels, and those just seeking a good story line."
