    Mediocre effort by Andie MacDowell, who comes across as unemotional, stiff, and very mechanical in her portrayal of the lead character. Would be like kissing one's sister as she seems to be just going through the motions.

    The lack of continuity of the characters, the plot and places within the movie make the viewer do a double take as to what they are really seeing the books have
    sold in excess of 170 million copies for a reason, why the movie elects to shun the book is a puzzle.

    B grade actors giving a D- performance in a low budget soap opera that would never hold it's own on daytime TV.

    Hallmark aims for 95% female viewers and in the age range of 25-54, no way the male population would be attracted to Andie MacDowell and so therefore it's low rating.

    I have now watched all episodes of Cedar Cove. I must admit It has taken me by surprise as it does not follow the plots in Debbie Macomber's books. However, I find the show to be most enjoyable and intriging. It is low keyed but very enjoyable. The characters are developing.

    Cove is exactly What it aspires to be--uncynical, lulling and sweet. [12 Aug 2013]

    This relaxing series about small-town lives is as burden-free as a day on the beach with an umbrella, a book and a breeze.

    Despite a certain built-in B & B preciousness, Cedar Cove evokes certain splendid shows of another time and place, including the late-great "Family" and the longtime Irish hit "Ballykissangel."
