Murder at Fenway Park, by Troy Soos. The first in a series of "Mickey Rawlings" baseball murder mysteries. I read them all. Great use of actual players and baseball atmosphere from the 1910's and 1920's. This is the kind of baseball fiction I would like to write myself.
The Tuscan Trilogy: The Hills of Tuscany / A Vineyard in Tuscany / The Wisdom of Tuscany (Three-book slipcased edition) by Ferenc Máté http://www.amazon.com/dp/0920256783/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_icvevb1FHFKZG
I have to confess that I'm too much of a homebody to love most adventure and outdoor books. But I loved "The Tenderness of Wolves" from the start. As I said when I reviewed the book when it appeared, it's a quiet, striking story focused on characters who are all outcasts or loners in some way. The story is nuanced and complex, and the vision of the frontier compelling.
