Here's a few I read recently:
THE ART OF HEARING HEARTBEATS by Jan-Philipp Sendker
Julia Win graduates from law school and then her father disappears, leaving his wife, daughter, and son confused; a few years later Julia finds a clue that her father went to his home village in Burma so she travels there and meets a man who claims to know him and tells the story of his childhood that he never knew. This beautiful, literary story of a child who made the most of his poor circumstances, including blindness, and came to love a girl who could not walk is tender, readable, and passionate. The novel is published for an adult audience and has YA crossover appeal and is more about a family history of acceptance and learning to use all of one's senses than a missing man. (Other Press, 2006)
THE ART FORGER by B. A. Shapiro
Claire Roth paints high quality look alikes of the "masters'" work for Reproductions.com although she longs to overcome drama from her past and be known for her originals; she is given the chance when gallery owner Aiden Markel asks her to copy a Degas -- one known to be stolen from the unsolved 1990 Gardner Museum heist -- and in return he will show her paintings. Claire must use her "forgery" expertise and decide what to do. This adult novel is high on interest, especially the details of how a late 1800s oil painting can realistically and believably be forged. The mystery is based on the Gardner theft, and although the details are fictionalized, the book is hard to put down. A fantastic book for art and non-traditional mystery fans. (Algonquin, 2012)
I am also reading THE GOLDFINCH right now and although it is loooong and I hear it could've been cut by about 200 pages, I am enjoying it through page 300!
