改编自Julie Wassmer的"Whitstable Pearl Mysteries"系列小说，本剧讲述了惠斯塔布当地善良的餐馆老板Pearl Nolan，年轻时曾接受过警察培训，但因为怀孕而放弃了自己梦想的职业，如今她成立了一家侦探社。
Season two will see celebrity chef Pearl Nolan prioritize her detective work and transition from being a chef who solves crimes to a full time investigator who just happens to own a restaurant. It's also been six months since the breakdown of her fleeting romance with DCI Mike McGuire; the two former lovers have decided to remain friends, and both have moved on... fast. With every new case she takes, it always seems to begrudgingly overlap with Mike's police investigations. Charged by a determination to outdo each other (and a fiery mutual attraction), it's a race to solve each case, but when they work together, they make a hell of a team.
