On the 2nd Day of Christmas…

…my true love gave to me: two turtle doves,

and a partridge in a pear tree.

Diamond Dove

To symbolize the gift on the second day of Christmas (two turtle doves) we chose “Diamond Dove” by Adrian Hyland.


Diamond Dove is Adrian Hyland’s first crime novel, and it is set in the Australian outback. The main character Emily Tempest, part white part aborigine, is returning to the community where she grew up just as an old friend is found murdered.

The setting alone makes me want to read it right away. Plus I do not think that I have ever read a crime novel set down under. Maybe I should make my New Year’s resolution for next year to read novels from all parts of the world. What would your recommendation be?
