Debbie Macomber's sweet small-town romance series Cedar Cove is now a weekly television show on Hallmark starring Andie MacDowell! Check out Rachel's recaps of the 2-hours series premiere, episode 2, episode 3, and episode 4, episode 5, episode 6, episode 7, and episode 8. And now, onto her recap of episode 9, “Old Flames New Sparks...”:
It’s all about the guys this time out, with Jack, Cliff, Stan, Will, Seth, John Bowman and even Bob taking center stage, their assorted paramours (and would-be paramours) much discussed, mooned over and wooed.
Let’s start with Jack (Dylan Neal), who kicks off the episode with some casual peeping, only to witness Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and her ex-husband Stan (Andrew Airlee) getting along famously, reliving old times. Jack has long been threatened by the genial Stan’s recent re-entry into Olivia’s life, and though Stan claims that he is in town for closure on the death of son Jordan, and to make amends with daughter Justine (Sarah Smyth), Jack is not the only one suspicious that maybe the compliment-throwing, flower-giving Mr. Lockhart is also hopeful of a deeper reconciliation with his beautiful ex-wife, despite the fact that he has remarried.
