Quinn and Abby are both rebuilding their lives after bad breakups and career disasters. But they get off to a rocky start when the petting zoo animals she's caring for break through his fence. Could Abby and her menagerie be exactly what Quinn needs to wear down his gruff exterior and reawaken his heart?

This is a cute small-town romance with paranormal elements. The writing is good, and the story well-developed. If you enjoy this genre, this is a good choice. It's sweet and heartwarming with a l

This is a nice romance novel. The two main characters, Abby and Quinn, both are undergoing a difficult moment in their life. Abby is starting to find herself again while being in charge of her aunt Reva's animal rehabilitation center, when Quinn moves in the house next doors and doesn't like the animals and the noise they make.
Getting to know Abby means also getting to understand the importance of Buckaroo Barn, and finally falling in love with both.
I loved Wolf insight of the story, very clever

Warm Nights in Magnolia Bay by Babette de Jongh is a charming, heartwarming story. The two main characters, Abby Curtis and Quinn Lockhart share the unhappiness of broken relationships at the beginning of this storyline. I enjoyed reading along as these two worked on their relationship with each other and fell in love. Quinn learned the value of the Buckaroo Barn while getting to know Abby. An important character in this story turned out to be an abandoned dog who is probably half wolf. Wolf's c ...more

It is nice to read about a warm place when it is crazy cold outside! Magnolia Bay is about an hour from New Orleans and has a very sleepy bayou vibe. Abby has moved in with her Aunt Reva after a devastating breakup and loss of her job as an office manager. I think the blurb is a little misleading in saying that she has hit rock bottom - but she is definitely at a low point in her life. Her Aunt runs and lives on a haven for animals - Bayside Barn - basically a very small zoo. Reva is leaving for ...more

Warm Nights in Magnolia Bay is a cute, small town enemies-to-lovers romance with animals and a bit of mysticism tossed in for good measure. Abby Curtis hits rock bottom and, without any help from her parents, ends up at her Aunt Reva's in Magnolia Bay. Helping Reva run her Bayside Barn, Abby is working through her issues, while trying to pick up the pieces of her life. When Reva is left to run Bayside Barn on her own, calamity rains down on her life, starting with the new distraction next door.

What a wonderful read about animals and the ability some people have to communicate with them. Throw in some romance and we have the perfect read.

Abby and Quinn meet because he’s bought the property next door and is going to renovate and sell it. He hopes to start a new business, after be ...more

Netgalley 💜 I love the cover. Abby I liked immediately. She is not a people person. I liked how she was with animals. I liked dialogue, descriptions and characters. I like name Abby. Quick good read with chemistry.
