Sunburn by Laura Lippman

Steamy, twisty and dripping with psychological suspense, it's no wonder that Sunburn is one of 2018's most-wanted crime novels. Drifters Polly and Adam meet at a bar in small-town Belleville, Delaware, and become locked in a lethal game of cat and mouse that ends in murder. Fans of 1940s noir, such as Mildred Pierce, will love this terrific equivalent.

The author has an incredible knack for making dim-and-distant history feel immediate and alive. We're in Somerset, 1941. A wealthy man has gone missing and a body is spotted in the river. Village priest John Reve investigates. Will he be helped by secrets revealed in the confessional, or hindered by his own inner demons? Beautifully written, thrilling in every sense.

The Last of the Greenwoods by Clare Morrall

Damaged but delightful offbeat characters are Morrall's trademark. Two elderly brothers live in adjoining railway carriages, but never speak until the day a young postwoman, with problems of her own, delivers a letter claiming to be from the sister they believe was murdered 50 years before. A touching tale of guilt and forgiveness told with wry, heart-warming humour.

The Kennedy Moment by Peter Adamson

Five old college friends hatch a conspiracy to blackmail the US government. If it goes wrong, millions of lives around the world will be affected. Adamson formerly worked as a United Nations senior adviser for 16 years, which put him at the heart of international affairs - and it shows. His persuasively page-turning political thriller is filled with richly drawn characters and authentic plotting. It's superb.

Peonies by Jane Eastoe and Georgianna Lane

Peonies have long been a favourite of the cut-flower and gardening brigade, but their popularity skyrocketed as the blooms took over social media. Their Instagram power was such that the flowers were crowned the New Avocado. It's easy to see why from the specimens featured in the glorious guide. Whether you use it for planting inspiration or simply for 'peony gazing' as the Chinese and Japanese do at their peony festivals, you won't be disappointed.

The Long spring by Laurence Rose

What's more magical than the earth bursting into spring after its winter slumber? Leaving Spain in early February, when storks arrive on San Blas Day, to tracking migrating swallows, cranes and eventually wild swans, Rose heads north through Europe following the arrival of spring, reaching the Arctic Circle four months later. Uplifting, especially if our own spring is slow in arriving.
