In the quaint coastal town of Cedar Cove, Washington, stands a statue of which identity no one knows anymore (see, there was this fire a long time ago and, plus, the plaque had fallen off). Quirky activities are staged in Cedar Cove such as the Annual Seagull Calling Contest. Like clockwork folks gather at the pier to eyeball an odd fisherman's latest catch (it never seems to be fish).

And in the Cedar Cove Municipal Court, Judge Olivia Lockhart rules with no-nonsense toughness but also with the wisdom that comes with ingrained familiarity of her provincial community. The series follows her as she juggles her professional and personal lives. When she opts to take her time on ruling on an uncontested divorce, she ends up in the local paper. This bit of controversy threatens her bid for federal judgeship. Not that it matters. Even suckers like us know that this small-town judge isn't about to abandon her hometown bailiwick. Not with a new romance in the offing. Not with her daughter engaged to a sleazy real estate developer whom Judge Lockhart trusts as far as the actress playing her can thrown Gerard Depardieu (who co-starred in my third all-time favorite Andie MacDowell film). And, plus, there's the title of the show.

(Since no one asked, I won't even mention that my top two all-time favorite Andie MacDowell films are GROUNDHOG DAY and FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL; my fourth favorite is, yes, HUDSON HAWK.)

It's Hallmark Channel's first stab at a television series, and never mind that it's more of a shallow cut. CEDAR COVE embodies plenty of Hallmark's signature traits. It's wholesome. It's warm. It's non-controversial, not hard-hitting, not penetrating stuff. Cedar Cove, the place, looks stunning, like an awesome place to live in.

If you've read Debbie MacComber's books, you'll love this rendition of her Cedar Cove series! But keep in mind, there are tweaks to make it "read" better on screen. The whole spirit of the show is heartwarming. It's fun to see the characters come to life.

I recommend it as a girls-night-in show. My husband travels a lot, so I savor each episode as my "me" time indulgence when he's out of town. It's sweet and kind-hearted, and makes me crave small town life. Love it.

I have read quite a few of Debbie Macomber's books but I have not read this series. What I like about her books is the wholesomeness and telling a story without crudeness. They are usually sweet stories with happy endings but sometimes, that is what we need. We see enough violence, sex, disrespect, sadness, and crude language on tv and movies. The scenery is gorgeous and it was a pleasure to watch.

I am a long time fan of Debbie Macomber and have enjoyed the Hallmark Channel adaptations of her Christmas books and was looking forward to the Cedar Cove series. I enjoyed the series very much, however, I had to stop my self from comparing it to the books. There are quite a few changed made for the series, first and foremost, Olivia's offer of the Judgeship and the possibility of her leaving Cedar Cove. I wondered why Grace was divorced instead of being left by her husband until I realized that all of the characters seem to be younger than in the series. Grace's divorce makes sense if you know the circumstances of her marriage as portrayed in the books; not giving a spoiler by explaining this plot. All in all this is a good series and I am looking forward to season 2.

Love the mood of this series. The scenery alone makes it worth watching. I like the integrity of the local judge and the small town stories.

I am so enjoying these videos. We don't have cable, so I wasn't going to be able to see the series. Then I saw that amazon had the whole season for less than I would pay for a month of cable! A no-brainer for me. I watch 1 every night! So good to see what Cedar Cove looks like. I pictured Olivia & Grace differently, but I'm getting used to them now. Thanks, Debbie & Andie, for bring this to life!
