  1. Absolutely love Hallmark movies—they’re always so “feel-good” and romantic. As a huge Debbie Macomber fan, I’d love to see how they interpret the series on the screen. Andie MacDowell is perfect as Olivia too!

    I don’t have a favorite Cedar Cove book. I have read the whole series and loved it. I think I have read most of Debbie Maccombers books. I would love them to turn her Blossom Street books into a series.

I programmed it on my DVR as soon as it was available on the guide menu. I have enjoyed all of Debbie’s books that I have read. Keep on writing and thanks for bringing the books to life not only in my mind but also on television!

  23. Jessie C. says:

    I am excited to see this series come to the small screen because of the cast-Andie MacDowell

  24. JoAnne says:

    Cedar Cove is one of the first romance series that I read. I fell in love with the characters. I loved their interactions and how real the stories are. Not everything is happily ever after. Characters face real life problems, tragedies, happy events and sucked me in to all the actions and relationships. I look forward to seeing how true the TV show is to the books and if I can wrap my arms around the stars playing the characters that I’ve pictured in my mind for 12 books.

  25. I love this book series and so excited to see it come to the screen. I wonder if her other series such as blossom street will eventually make it to tv too

  26. Patricia Espinoza says:

    I don’t remember which book it is in the series but I like the one where Olivia decides that the kids will stay in their house after their parents divorce and the parents have to live somewhere else half the time. It was controversial but very realistic, the parents see how hard divorce really is from the child’s perspective.

    And I love it when Olivia and Grace go out for pie after working out!! 🙂

  27. Great series! Looking forward to seeing Cedar Cove on TV this weekend! TV could use a bit more ‘positive light’ from time to time! Also, I am thrilled Barbara Niven is in the series! Fantastic and diverse actress!

  28. Kelly m says:

    I’m really excited for this series. I haven’t read any of the books but will now. It looks like a really good heartwarming show.

  29. karen cole says:

    I really like the tv series. It is some much like the things that happen in true life an she truly plays a very good part as the judge an I love how she speaks her mind an doesn’t care what others thinks what she has to say an she is very funny an interesting lady especially in the series that wwas aired july 20th very interesting debbie only could play this

  30. Dixie Satterfield says:

    I love the Cedar Cove series so much. Have ready 7 of the books so far and going to read all of them. Can’t decide which is my favorite, but I really enjoy all of the stories about Grace and her family and Teri Polgar and quite a character.

  31. Ferne E. Knauss says:

    I loved the Cedar Cove series and I couldn’t wait to watch the recording of last night’s pilot! The Cedar Cove series were the first books I read by Debbie Macomber and reading her books is pure joy. I’m thrilled that this is the series that came to life via the Hallmark Channel. It’s a perfect fit!

  32. pam cheatham says:

  35. bunny hamm says:

    I was in the middle of reading the book “16 Lighthouse Road” and really enjoying it when the series came on Hallmark. I didn’t know it was the same thing until we started watching it and I knew all the characters! It was so much fun to see how close the series follows the book. We love it!

  36. Judy O'Neal says:

    I’ve loved Debbie Macomber books for years and years, sorry, Debbie.
    Just finished the book which the show is following fairly closely.
    Knew I had to watch the show when it debuted since I knew from her books you don’t have to worry about the language! I really appreciate that part of Debbie Macomber. Nice to see so many familiar actors/actresses.
    Hope to win the trip, since the town always sounds so real.
    Thank You for being such a generous person with the yarn shops.

  54. A'lyce Baldarelli says:

    1. This is the nicest series on TV as far as being the most like most American families today.
    2. I REALLY believe that the “judge’s” decision making the parents in the divorce situation move from the home on specified visitation times instead of the kids is the very best way to do it if we are really concerned about the interest of the kids.
    3. How do I enter the contest? Please enter me or let me know how.

  55. Barbara says:

    This is the best SHOW on TV. Just Brilliant, following the lives of Cedar Cove, and their Familys. Since most of the show that
    are hits have a lot of Violence and this show does not need this to be a hit. Hope it runs for 10yrs, Just Great,

  56. Mary Erickson says:

    Its about time we get a series that is family oriented with each episode ending in such a manner that one feels good about viewing each and every episode. Debbie Macomber’s books are a great read and one that everyone should take the time to read. Making Debbie’s books into mini-series would be a plus for all viewers.

  57. Karen Foreman says:

    Love Debbie’s books about Cedar Cove. I am so glad that Hallmark has put them into picture. Keep the episodes coming!!!!!

  58. Nancy Loichytz says:

    I have read the whole series of Cedar Cove. Enjoyed each and every one. Interesting to see how the series unfolds. Met Debbie Macomber at a book sale, she is a fantasic lady.

  59. Patricia Soper says:

    I love the show and watch it faithfully. I even finally got my sister watching it and comparing notes. You couldn’t have picked a better person to play the part. Andie MacDowell is so graceful and sincere; I just love her. I cannot wait until Saturdays.

  60. Roberta Martinez says:

    I have read all the books for this series and I am enjoying the tv series with my granddaughter. Love it. It is a great way to spend some family time. If we can not see it on Saturday evening we recorder and make it a point to see it together!

  61. Cheryl Stephenson says:
