The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

Intriguing and well-written. The book is about a book-lover who is commissioned to write a biography of England's most popular, Vida Winters. I totally got sucked into Setterfield's world. I thought the ending (spoiler alert!) - the introduction of a third sister - was a bit contrived (kind of the like the ending of I Am Legend, with Will Smith - "hey! there are more people! yay!" - didn't like that one...). This is only a minor setback, though, and not enough to stop me from recommending it to others.
