Review by: Tammy on June 04, 2012 :
Mavis Hannon is living an unsatisfying life. She is an inspiring author who is working as a file girl in an architects firm. Her boyfriend Cole Windsor is a very busy attorney, who rarely has time to spend with Mavis. All is pretty bland until she buys the winning raffle ticket with the winner receiving "A leprechaun that cleans the house for you, from top to bottom. A real expert house cleaner."
Much to Mavis surprise the house cleaner is a real life leprechaun named Greenberry Muldoon (Berry).
Berry goes about cleaning Mavis house and straightening up her life in ways she could never have expected.
This short is only 19 pages, but they were very enjoyable pages.
The characters are original and likeable.
The plot contains the moral lessons of making the most out of life, and sharing ones fortune.
This book is currently free on Amazon and Smashwords.
It makes a great lunch hour read, leaving you smiling and feeling chipper.
I will be purchasing the next installment of this short series.

Review by: Michelle Devon on May 23, 2012 :
In this short story, we are introduced to Berry, a leprechaun--perhaps the only one left, or at least, one of the very few left. We learn that leprechaun's have a lot of myth surrounding them, and Berry sets us straight (ahem) so to speak, on what a leprechaun really is. This short story stands alone as a cute tale, spun as a feel-good short about changing your attitude and thus changing your life. Berry meets Mavis, a single woman whose life is a little disorganized. When she 'wins' him in a raffle, he visits her house, takes her by surprise, and then helps her sort out everything chaotic in her life. In the meantime, Mavis learns some things about her life she had been missing before, in particular about herself, but also about the man she had been dating. With Berry's help, she manages to make some good decisions and move in a more positive direction.

But alas, Berry can't stay in one place forever, so when his work is done, he shares a bit about his personal life with Mavis, and then he asks her to help him move on. After all, a leprechaun is lucky, and there are others who need his help rearranging their lives too.

That's where this story obviously opens itself up for sequels, and the author already has another installment out. Mavis & the Leprechaun is really a cute story, with several chuckle-out-loud moments. It's light, breezy and humorous, not intended to be a serious fantasy read or anything of that nature. Just a fun story for a quick read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I like Berry and I do look forward to reading future installments about him and learning more about his past that is hinted at in this story.

Who wouldn't want to win a leprechaun? Mavis does and soon he makes her life all topsy-turvy. This is a fun read about finding your inner potential, sometimes with the help of an unexpected friend.

Review by: Prolific CTK on May 01, 2012 : (no rating)
This is an interesting idea. I found it all a little "too good to be true" and kept waiting for the catch... I would definitely love to have a benevolent stranger turn up who would clean up my apartment and give me free clothes etc. I couldn't help wondering whether Mavis herself was emotionally ready for all these changes, because they probably wouldn't last, otherwise.
Altogether, a fun piece of escapist literature, allowing readers to indulge themselves by imagining those changes in their own lives.

Review by: Joan H. Young on May 01, 2012 :
Mavis and the Leprechaun is a light fun read that will make you smile. It's perfect for a lunchtime read or a longish coffee break. Berry is not your average leprechaun.. is he really helpful, or overbearing? You'll have to read the story to find out.

The writer uses good grammar and you won't be stumbling over the words in an effort to get to the story. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
