Album Review: Tom Grennan – Evering Road (2021)

Bedford singer-songwriter Tom Grennan's second album feels like a warm hug on a chilly night - and a clear progression of his sound from 2018's Lighting Matches.

Book Review: Luke Jennings – Die For Me (Killing Eve book 3)

The saga which inspired one of the most talked-about TV shows of all time appears to have come to its' conclusion - and I don't know whether to be disappointed or thankful.
