the town Judge, Olivia Lockhart and they begin an unlikely romantic
relationship between a Judge and a reporter. Along with the pillars
of the community they strive to keep Cedar Cove beautiful and

extras for these telefilms, but all sets have 1.78 X 1 anamorphically
enhanced images and lossy Dolby Digital sound. The telefilms are too
soft versus the TV series, but that sounds weaker in comparison to
