The British seaside holiday will never be the same again!  

Season two sees our amateur sleuth becoming immersed in more crime, family drama and a compelling will-they-won’t-they love affair with Mike (Howard CharlesThe Musketeers, Top Boy), all set against the stunning backdrop of Whitstable’s mysterious Kentish coastline.
