Poets had always lived there, the locals claimed. When Sadie inherits Poet's Cottage in the Tasmanian fishing town of Pencubitt, she sets out to discover all she can about her notorious grandmother, Pearl Tatlow. Pearl was a children's writer who scandalised 1930s Tasmania with her behaviour. She was also violently murdered in the cellar of Poet's Cottage and her murderer never found. Sadie grew up with a loving version of Pearl through her mother, but her aunt Thomasina tells a different story, one of a self-obsessed, abusive and licentious woman. And Pearl's biographer, Birdie Pinkerton, has more than enough reason to discredit her.

As Sadie and her daughter, Betty, work to uncover the truth, strange events begin to occur in the cottage. And as the terrible secret in the cellar threads its way into the present day, it reveals a truth more shocking than the decades-long rumours. Poet's Cottage is a beautiful and haunting mystery of families, bohemia, truth, creativity, lies, memory, and murder.

    " I was given a free copy and as the book was set in Tasmania I was intrigued. This book did not work for me at all. And who would call their teenage daughter Betty these days? "

    " Quite good. Love the setting in Tasmania and the old house. The fact is was based on a real house made the story more interesting. Little disappointed in the actual murder mystery. Bit long and drawn out - the last half of the book picked up a bit so would give it a 7/10. "

    " Just not for me, tried, but no go. Too many cliches. Kate Morton like, without the charm in my opinion. "

    " An easy read, nice little mystery that has some turns you see coming and others you don't. The setting of the book is picturesque and darling, the characters are interesting and complex and I quite enjoyed this one. "
