Claire Goose stars as a high-flying solicitor who, following the failure of a relationship, returns to live and work in the seaside town she escaped from as a teenager. With her young, headstrong daughter Beth in tow, Jane moves in with her mother and starts a new job and, hopefully, a new chapter of her life.
As coroner, Jane Kennedy's job is to investigate sudden or unexplained deaths in this beautiful English coastal community. But, while Jane is talented and tenacious in seeking justice for the dead, her personal life is a bit more haphazard.
With a new and intriguing case to investigate in each episode, Jane finds herself having to work with ex-boyfriend Davey Higgins, who is now the local detective sergeant.
The pair were childhood sweethearts and the chemistry between them remains as palpable as ever - will this old flame finally be reignited?
