Fight for a Throne, by Christopher Duffy, an new account of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion ending with the battle of Culloden. Excellent book, full of details and insights, with first-hand reference material to add to the drama.
Fiction-wise, Brothers in Blood, by Simon Scarrow, Roman Britain, legionaries, Brits etc.
Also, the Grantchester stories by James Runcie, a 1950s' vicar cum sleuth story. Very much along the lines of Poirot, Marple etc.

Still on the history of the '45, a study of the Jacobite rebellion (Bonnie Prince Charles, Duke of Cumberland and Culloden) and jolly riveting it is too.
I've discovered that, following the Prince's retreat back to Scotland following an 'invasion' of England, the Duke pursued him and, en route, camped his army in my home town of Macclesfield. The Duke himself stayed at a certain house before moving on.
That house, afterwards re-named Cumberland House, was the doctor's surgery where I and my family visited for years! A handsome, Georgian-style building, set high up in what was once the old town on the hill, and it is still there, though now converted to apartments.
Quite amazing to think that my mother and I used to call in to a house made famous in history by rather infamous events as they unfolded.
Always something to learn.

Ann Cleeves - The Crow Trap. Writer of TV's Vera and Shetland. Excellent book, kept me guessing to the very end. I met her recently and bought the book which she kindly autographed for me.

I have thought about buying Vera on DVD. I've never seen it as I don't watch television broadcasts, but it sounds like a good detective series :)
Glad you enjoyed your book, mate :)
