“Even though this book is right up my alley, falling into one of my favorite genres, English Mystery, I still found myself struggling to finish the story. Having had a couple of months to mull it over, I've come to the conclusion that as much as I liked the idea of the Thirteenth Tale, I never learned to really like the heroine, making it difficult to empathise with her, and Ms. Winters the other main character. I found myself often frustrated with the main character's rational, but I really wanted to enjoy the book, so I kept on, hoping a bond would form. It didn't. Regardless, I gave this book four stars mostly for the premise of the story as being one that was quite original, and therefore enjoyable.”
