More Like a Warm Night in Ballymuir 4 April 2005
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I find it hard to really care about prickly Jenna, or her bratty sister, Maureen. The effort to keep Dev's business interest mysterious, just ends up making it uninteresting. Apparently it had something to do with some modern resort or shopping center ruining Ballymuir's charm (and Jenna's restaurant).

I really like reading about Ireland, but the characters put me off enough that I couldn't even enjoy some of the descriptions of the country.

By page 150, I gave up on the story and flipped ahead trying to find the "Hot Night" that was promised. Never did spot it, but I'm sure it's there somewhere hidden in Jenna and Dev's sparring.

Sparks flying 11 Mar 2004
By Barbara Lynn Caputo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sparks fly from more than bonfires in Ballymuir. Jenna Fahey fled her American family and worked to build a crumbling Irish manor into a fine restaurant. Dev Gilvane buried his Irish roots under finely tailored suits. Dev's after Jenna's home and after her heart. Jenna's after soaking his ambitions with the same determination she used to plunge his cell phone into her lobster tank.

Dorien Kelly does it again! 21 April 2004
By Christine Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
HOT NIGHTS takes us back to the town Dorien Kelly created so vividly in LAST BRIDE IN BALLYMUIR, and what a triumphant return it is. This time we share the lives of Jenna, she who has brought Muir House back to life, and Dev, he who could steal away all she's worked so hard to create. Slowly, gently, and believably, these two work their way into each others lives and hearts.
Very nice read 5 July 2013
By WENDY AKIN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Contrary to the Hot Nights of the title, the story is not raunchy or explicit. The story has all the elements of a good read: romance, Ireland, magic, food, intrigue and conflict and just a little sex. I look forward to reading more of the Ballymuir series.

Left me Cold 9 April 2004
By Mabh B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Weary, stale, flat...but apparently profitable. This formulaic second book in Kelly's series leaves one as cold as...well any real night in Ireland would. All there was of depth and promise in the first has fallen sadly short here. With a tiresomely predictable heroine, Jenna, and her inability to leave control of even the smallest detail or greatest pleasure, to the conflicted momma's boy for a hero, Dev, clearly meant to be the Devil, one must wonder what deal the author made that would force such compromise in what could have been a truly rich, deep, and Irish story line. Where "Last Bride" excited and inspired, "Hot Nights" , just makes the reader cringe in embarrassment for its author, and wonder if the third book, if there is one coming, will be worth the time to read it, or better thrown in the fire to try to generate the heat this book lacks.
