Do you prefer stories to Easter eggs?

Spring has arrived in the north country! I love the new life bursting from the ground and budding from every branch. I love Easter. I love the deluge of birthdays in my family. Between the bustle of gardening and celebrations, I also have fun things for you readers: a song, a book I enjoyed, and free books for your virtual Easter basket.

You probably know I focus mostly on books in my monthly newsletter, but hey, we need music too. This month I can’t resist sharing a song I recently discovered: Resurrecting by Elevation Worship. Happy listening!

A book I enjoyed:

Cut to the Heart by Janeen Ippolito

This story has all the fun of shape-shifters, amazing powers, and good guys fighting evil, but it’s also much more. The characters are “real” with varied and true-to-life relationships. They are the sort of people you can cheer for. It also had me chuckling under my breath a good many times. The story can stand alone, but I’ve already ordered the sequel that’s coming out in May.

If you like young adult, urban fantasy, check this one out!
