Rum Runner reminded me a lot of the movie Fool’s Gold. Although it has a younger cast and it’s not quite as funny. Sophie has been hanging on to a medallion for her absent father for awhile, and now he wants it back. She’s not just going to hand it over though. She finally wants to meet the man who ran out on her and her mother. However, when she arrives, her father isn’t there. Instead, she’s faced with Jimmy and a hoard of bad guys who want her father. Sophie should just return to England where she’s safe, but for some reason she just can’t bring herself to leave.

Shadowshaper was a pretty good read! It all starts when Sierra’s grandfather, who recently suffered a stroke, tells her that someone is coming and mentions something about shadowshapers. Everyone thinks the old man is crazy, but Sierra believes him and wants answers. Her grandfather had also told her to find a boy named Robbie to help her finish the mural she’s been working on. Turns out that Robbie knows all about shadowshapers, because he is one. And so is Sierra.

The Secret of a Heart Note was a very unique and quiet kind of story. Magical Realism normally isn’t my thing, but this one sounded more Contemporary with a hint of magic. Mim and her mother are the last two aromateurs on Earth. They have heightened senses of smell which can detect a person’s unique scent and their emotions. They use their ability to make love potions, but are not allowed to fall in love themselves. Doing so would mean losing their nose.
