Aussie Book Review: Poet’s Cottage by Josephine Pennicott

Early reviews so far have all been wonderful for Poet’s Cottage. I’m so thrilled to see other readers enjoying my characters and my Tasmanian mystery! This weekend I’m definitely going to create a review section on my Blog! Thank you to Aussie Book Review for this review. I’m so chuffed to read the following :


Poet’s Cottage is a ghostly mystery which spans three generations and covers themes of mental illness, infidelity, childhood abuse and the dramas of a small town in the 1930’s.


In the author’s note, Josephine says she set out to create an English-style mystery but with an Australian setting and I think she captured this perfectly. When I read this, I felt as captivated as I did when I read Sara Foster’s ghostly mystery Beneath the Shadows- which I also loved.


Highly recommended!

    A brown paper parcel tied with string in this mornings mail! What excitement awaits within? The other mundane “window” flat whites lying on the table beside it, can’t compete and the coffee making waits a few moments.
    Congratulations Josephinne! What a great looking cover, the vacumn cleaner is quickly put aside and the feet are up..the story begins.
    Thank you so much, I feel very honoured and humble with my copy.
    Until the last page is finished…continue with my best wishes and joy at seeing your dream come true.

    Chris, it’s always so wonderful to hear from you. Happy to know my parcel arrived safely in Stanley. Thank you so much for everything and just for being your beautiful self and helping me to form the character of you know who.( I won’t say it here in case it creates a mini spoiler.)
    You know that the Captain’s Cottage will always be a big part of my heart. Hopefully it won’t be too long before I’m back there again and we must meet for a toast to Poet’s Cottage. I hope you enjoy my murder mystery. The Tasmanian papers should be running my interview soon. I know the books are now in stores down there. Give my best love to Stanley and blow a kiss to that wild sea for me. xx
