    1. I really liked this short book because the characters were lovable and the story was slightly unusual. Alejo is a young gardener who believes he's straight until he runs into Fane, a tiny fairy who's the guardian of the garden Alejo is in charge of over the summer. The two become friends and, thanks to Fane's magical ability to turn Alejo into a fairy once a month, they eventually become lovers. Add a little intrigue due to the fact that the gardener's owner doesn't agree with Alejo's environmen [...]


    2. This was recommended to me by a friend, and even though this writer is hit and miss for me~I still wanted to give this a tryBUT, sadly for me another miss for me


    3. Although I disliked Irving’s previous offering, The Janitor, I wanted to give the author another try. Unfortunately after reading the train wreck that is Summer Gardener, Irving’s writing is definitely not for me. There are numerous readers who have praised her work so perhaps others will enjoy her books more than I did. This particular offering is poorly written with a lazy way of showing emphasis through random italicized words in combination with a loose plot and bad characterization. The [...]


    4. If you think that fairies (and yes, I’m talking about the real thing, the little fae people with colourful wings) are charming and pretty, you haven’t yet met Fane; fine is little, barely nine inches tall, but he doesn’t like to be called pretty, and for sure he uses his charm only on who he likes, and he doesn’t like many people. He is the guardian of a garden, and he allows inside it only gardener he likes, and lucky Alejo, Fane likes him. Alejo is a big but gentle man, young and innoc [...]


    5. I enjoyed this story and the characters were lovable. The problems I saw with this story were (1.) The way the story jumped around without warning or explanation. (2.) Some of the dialog was confusing and also a bit of the narrative. It was almost as if it was worded by someone who was not completely familiar with the English language. This did not pull me from the story enough to keep it from being a delight to read.



    6. Really 3.5 stars.A sweet fantasy. I found myself really caught up in the magic. Unfortunately the writer missed the mark emotionally and that left things feeling rather light weight.


    7. This was a fun read. An intriguing love story between a garden fairy and a gardener who's just discovering his sexualityd the complications of falling for a fairy--literally.
