It's the second series of Hilary Lyon's Secrets and Lattes. Trisha (Hilary Maclean) and Clare (Hilary Lyon) keep the caffeine-fuelled comedy coming in their Edinburgh coffee shop, Cafe Culture.

But can the sisters rise to the challenge of keeping the business going while coping with a missing chef and dealing with 20 year-old waitress, Lizzie (Pearl Appleby) falling off the kleptomania wagon?

Throw in Trisha's married ex-boyfriend and Clare's absent husband and it's emotional carnage all round.

Clare can't cope with change but Trisha positively craves it - praise the Lord for God-fearing Minty (June Watson), an eccentric but helpful customer who won't make a drama out of a crisis.

It's May in Edinburgh and life at Cafe Culture is certainly bursting with life.

Trisha is about to marry her long-term, long-distance lover Richard and, despite being mid-divorce, big sister Clare can't resist meddling in the wedding arrangements.

Relations are strained too between supposedly recovering kleptomaniac trainee Lizzie and laid-back Glaswegian chef Callum over her friendship with his autistic teenage son Max.

There is much uncertainty over living (and sleeping) arrangements all round as everyone works out where home is exactly - and who else is in it.

Will Trisha and Richard actually make it up the (outdoor) aisle and who might still be speaking to who?
