Best new books of February

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, what better way to mark the occasion than to immerse yourself into some weird, wonderful and downright messed-up relationships? In this month’s crop of novels, we have a woman who has an affair with her step-daughter’s boyfriend in The Lemon Grove, a wife whose husband had her sectioned in Tom Rob Smith’s eerie The Farm, and a string of doting women married to the notorious Ernest Hemingway in Naomi Wood’s fabulous Mrs Hemingway. So buy yourself some chocolates and get between the sheets with our pick of February’s books.
