When a handsome leprechaun reveals himself to Clover O’Leary on her eighteenth birthday, she is faced with three hard facts. One: he is the reason for her remarkably charmed life; Two: her luck has now taken a turn for the worse. Three: her name is a curse; a malicious gift from the powerful leprechaun who named her while she was still in the womb.
In order to get her life back and undo the evil spell, she must travel to Ireland to seek the only creature who may be able to help: the Seelie Queen. With her intriguing leprechaun in tow, Clover crosses into the Faerie Realm, where fairies and mythical creatures abound and where finding her luck may ultimately lead to finding her love.

I have never read anything about leprechauns before, so this was something new for me. I don’t know much about its lore at all, but this book has its own lore with its own world. Merrows (mermaids) exist and so do fairies. It was a fantastical world, overall, that was well written.
The characters were great, as well. Momma Ruth was certainly the MVP for me. Clover suddenly starts having bad luck but when she and Finn go on their journey to fix it, not much happens to her (in terms of having bad luck). I felt there were times when it was more focused on a possible relationship with the characters than the actual plot. At the same time, I felt as though there could have been more character development present.
Everything was well wrapped up by the end and all questions were answered. The description and dialogue were well done, too. I enjoyed my time with this story.
