A Three-Bird Roast for Christmas

You know the one thing I always champion at Christmas? Not having turkey.

I grew up being told in adverts, by friends and by relatives that turkey was what you have at Christmas. You spend hours roasting it, you gorge yourself on it, and then you spend the rest of the week eating turkey sandwiches because there is half a ton of meat left in the fridge. Turkey all the way.

But we never had turkey.

I think this was because my family only consisted of my mother, my father and myself. It offended my father’s sensibilities to buy a bird that would barely get eaten. So instead he would order either a duck or a capon, apart from a couple of years when he decided to try goose. He eventually gave up on that as he was the only one who liked it, although we did appreciate how much goose fat was left over.

And why not? I love duck, I love chicken, so why not have them for Christmas?

Nowadays we have a bit of a compromise. We spend Christmas dinner with my in-laws, who always make a turkey crown, and on Christmas Eve my husband and I get either a duck or a three-bird roast. That’s probably excessive for just the two of us, but there’s something quite decadent about a three-bird roast, and what the heck, it’s Christmas. Let’s be decadent.

But I will always value trying something new for Christmas dinner. Duck. Chicken. Hell, get a couple of guinea fowls if it’s just the two of you. Pile your plate high with all the trimmings and enjoy.

And happy eating!

Tamar Steele, a successful medium for a paranormal investigative team, should be happy with her life—but life seems to be against her. Her psychic field is being mysteriously blocked, causing her physical pain and, worse, making it more and more difficult for her to come, creating stress in her relationship with long-term boyfriend Jason.

But then, during the filming of a paranormal TV show, Tamar picks up on Leslie, the recently murdered sister of her co-worker Hana—who later tells her the murderer was in the room with them. Knowing the best way to enhance her psychic ability is through sex, Tamar must rekindle her troubled relationship with Jason and rebuild their passion as she fights to solve the murder. Can she find the killer in time?
