Cedar Cove “House Divided”

TWAJeO92m602280_550042748393408_1505731618_n
Olivia welcomes home her best friend, the newly single Grace Sherman, who has returned to Cedar Cove earlier than expected. She has been on vacation in Sedona for a month, but she’s feeling the sting after receiving divorce papers from her husband Dan while away. Grace breaks down at the thought of starting over as after 26 years of marriage. Olivia offers nothing but encouragement, portraying Grace’s bright future as a “sequel” to her previous life.

Justine arrives at the Cedar Cove lighthouse to meet Warren, who is making plans to tear down the town’s iconic old structure. Justine is shocked by his decision, knowing how much the lighthouse means to the town. Warren is not interested in what she has to say, which only cements her resolve to end their relationship: she breaks off their engagement on the spot. Warren protests that he was planning on breaking up with her himself. Justine doesn’t care who gets the credit for the break-up; she just wants the relationship over with.

Bob & Peggy Beldon, who own the “Thyme & Tide” Bed and Breakfast, visit Jack in his office to discuss placing an ad for their business in the newspaper. When Jack reveals in passing that Warren is going to tear down the lighthouse, Bob is furious; the lighthouse once helped save his life when he was a fisherman. He’s determined to put a stop to the project, and Jack realizes he’s got a story on his hands.

Olivia and Grace stroll through town talking about the fact that Olivia has recently turned down a federal judgeship in order to stay in Cedar Cove. Grace can’t believe that Olivia would pass up such an opportunity, but when they run into Jack, Grace immediately notices the chemistry between her friend and the new guy in town. Jack confirms his date with Olivia for the next night. When Grace teases Olivia about the date, Olivia protests that it is nothing serious, but Grace doesn’t believe her. Olivia stops by Moon’s, and Justine tells her about the break-up with Warren. Olivia is happy to hear it; she never liked the relationship but is supportive of Justine. Justine brings up the fact that Warren had intended to break up with her, but Olivia hides the fact that she had encouraged Warren to do so.

Meanwhile, when Charlotte visits a local convalescent center where she volunteers, she gets a new case. A 90-year-old stroke victim was found unconscious, with no ID. He’s lost the power of speech, so Charlotte decides to keep him company. Curiously, the man seems familiar to her, but he doesn’t respond to her questions.

Later, Bob presents a petition to save the lighthouse to Warren, and the document is signed by almost everyone in Cedar Cove. Warren callously ignores the town’s request. Jack presents other options, none of which will benefit Warren financially—his project is all about economics.

At Moon’s, Justine is surprised when her old flame Seth arrives to see her. He’s heard the rumors about her break-up with Warren, and Justine is happy to confirm them. They head to a restaurant for dinner and run into Olivia and Jack, who are discussing the lighthouse situation. Olivia is thrown a little off balance, since Justine doesn’t know she and Jack are seeing each other. Justine notes that Jack and Olivia are on a date, and Olivia balks, calling it a “dinner”. After the awkward moment, Justine and Seth move on, and Olivia has to explain her uncertainty to Jack about revealing their status to her daughter. But she also reaffirms that she and Jack are definitely on a date, which eases his mind.

The next day, Bob appears at Olivia’s office to file a motion for an injunction against the lighthouse demolition, on the grounds that it’s an historic building. He leaves the matter in Olivia’s hands. She hunts down Warren and continues to ask him to stop the demolition, but he doesn’t care at all about being seen as a pariah by the town.

In Olivia’s chambers later that night, Grace arrives (with a chocolate cake in tow) to celebrate Justine’s break up with Warren. But Olivia is consumed with the lighthouse case; she can’t stand the idea of losing it. The conversation turns to the subject of why Olivia turned down the judgeship, and despite herself, Olivia confesses she was afraid of too much change, especially around having to sell a home filled with memories. Although the town is counting on Olivia to stop the destruction of the lighthouse, she can find no legal way to do it. When she refuses to grant the injunction, people are furious, especially Bob. Jack runs an article on Olivia’s decision, further inflaming the town’s bad feelings toward her. Jack worries that the article might spoil things between him and Olivia. When he asks her if they are okay, she tells him honestly that she is not sure. He asks her not to give up on them.

Seth and Justine take a walk together; he wants to start dating, but she’s not sure she’s ready. Freshly out of her relationship with Warren, she needs a break. But Seth is patient—he’ll wait.

At home, Olivia is in the garden when Charlotte arrives to discuss the lighthouse. She tells Olivia it’s where her father proposed years ago, looking over the water. With that, Charlotte departs, and Olivia is trapped between a rock and a hard place. Grace comes over later, and as they look through some old photos, Olivia sees a picture of her father. He was a lawyer, and Olivia wonders what he would do in this situation. Grace tells Olivia that he would follow the law, but find some way to make things right. This gives Olivia an idea. The following day, Olivia is at Grace’s when a worried Jack calls Olivia to warn her. A group of town protestors (including Bob, Peggy and Charlotte) are going to block Warren’s crew from starting the demolition, and the sheriff is being called in. Olivia arrives to see an angry confrontation between Warren and the townspeople. She tells Warren to send his crew away and meet her in her chambers; she may have a solution to the standoff.

In her chambers, Olivia explains her plan. She contacted Senator Raymond for help, and he found a preservation philanthropist willing to put up 80% of Warren’s asking price for the land. She will cover the rest herself. Warren agrees to the proposition but only if all of the details are kept secret so he can take credit for changing his mind and saving the lighthouse. Reluctantly, Olivia agrees to the deal. The townspeople are overjoyed when Warren tells them and he becomes a hero. Grace, however, is certain Olivia had something to do with the end result, and sends Jack to find her.Justine pays a visit to Seth, and they talk more about the fact that she’s not ready to rush into a new relationship. But Justine is drawn to him, and despite her reservations, she kisses him. Now Seth might have a reason to come back from the jobs that take him away from Cedar Cove so often.

Olivia goes out to the lighthouse to take pictures and Jack finds her there. He asks how she solved their lighthouse problem, but Olivia won’t admit the truth, as promised. He’s glad about the direction their relationship is going, although when he tries to kiss Olivia, she teasingly turns away. “We’ll see,” she says with a smile, and they look out on the water together.

Cedar Cove “Pilot”

1000410_10151490699671050_1204792450_n18050263b232bfe25da4be59bbe0642005170fb0

In the small but picturesque lake town of Cedar Cove, municipal judge Olivia Lockhart is a beautiful woman who is known to everyone in town for running a respectable courtroom. When Olivia rules to extend her decision on a divorce case involving a very young couple and the tragic loss of their newborn, the new editor-in-chief for the Cedar Cove Chronicle, handsome Jack Griffith, arrives to Olivia’s judges’ chamber to introduce himself and get the scoop. Jack is interested in Olivia, but she closes the door in his face, unable to talk about the case.

Alone in her office with her loving but nosy mother Charlotte, Olivia takes a phone call from Senator Pete Raymond, who explains a federal judge’s position has opened up in Seattle and he’d like to nominate her. Jack waits outside the courtroom, desperate for a news story. Charlotte leaves and Jack corners her at her car, asking to do a personal story on Olivia for the paper. Charlotte, thinking he would be a perfect match for her daughter, agrees.That night, Olivia gets ice cream with her daughter Justine, a recent college graduate. Justine works at a local coffee shop and hopes to sell homemade necklaces and make something of her college degree soon. She’s dating an older man, Warren, who is a wealthy home developer and is eager to provide for her. Olivia doesn’t quite approve of the relationship.

The next morning, the Cedar Cove Chronicle has a front-page story Jack wrote about Olivia and the divorce case. Olivia is annoyed and Cecilia, the young waitress and wife involved in Olivia’s peculiar divorce case, is frustrated with the front page story as well, not wanting the whole town to know about her personal life. As she waits tables, her estranged husband, Ian, walks in. Since he is in the Navy, he’ll be shipping out for six months and although they are divorcing, Ian still cares for Cecilia. The two still share a bond over the sudden death of their four-day-old daughter, Allison Marie.Warren cooks Justine dinner and surprises her with a diamond engagement ring. Justine sweetly declines his proposal, insisting they hardly know each other yet; she wants to wait to get married. She hurries off to a high school reunion committee meeting, where she sees her old flame, Seth, for the first time since graduation. All her old feelings come rushing back as they catch up with each other, and she is left confused about her relationship with Warren.The next day, Jack looks for a story at the community center, but instead he finds most of the town, including Olivia, watching the annual seagull-calling contest. As they joke around about the contest, they start to get to know each other. As they part ways, Jack asks Olivia to dinner sometime.

Before shipping out, Ian stops by Cecilia’s apartment. Cecilia is still upset with Ian about Allison Marie’s death, exactly one year ago. Ian was away on a submarine when Cecilia gave birth and Allison Marie died shortly after. When he returned, it seemed like he had no sympathy at all,but he was only trying to be strong for Cecilia. Now, Ian hugs Cecilia. Caught up in the emotions, they start to kiss, but Cecilia pushes Ian away.Jack takes Olivia out to dinner, trying to get to know her. They seem to have a good time, but when Jack drops her off home later, he looks distracted and nervous. He gives her a small kiss before hurrying away, explaining he has to go to the office. Olivia is curious about his sudden change in attitude, but invites him to come see a play with her the next day. He agrees, but then stands her up, making her furious.

Meanwhile, Justine and Seth start reconnecting and spending time together, despite Warren’s proposal and his renewed effort to win over Olivia. Alone on Seth’s boat, Seth kisses Justine. When she pushes him away, he criticizes her for her relationship, saying she is only after Warren’s money. She judges him for having no direction in life and remaining the immature jock she dumped in high school. Angry, she storms off the boat. Later, when Warren returns from a business trip, she finally accepts his marriage proposal.

That night at the restaurant, as Cecilia counts her tips, the local news reports a Navy submarine explosion with Ian on board. Later, she gets a call informing her Ian is injured, but stable. Cecilia is relieved he’s alive and visits him at the hospital. She brings him home and takes care of him, suddenly realizing after almost losing him forever, she wants him back.Olivia travels to Seattle where she has an interview with Senator Raymond for the federal judge position. Although the two are old acquaintances, Raymond is gravely serious when he pulls out a copy of the Chronicle with Jack’s front-page story about Olivia’s divorce case. He wants her for the judgeship, but he worries about these controversial rulings and stories. Olivia defends her decision in the case, but agrees to stay out of the papers. She gets the job.

Hanging around the sheriff’s office, Jack notices some surveillance photos of Warren spread out on a desk. He goes to Olivia’s home, which is now up for sale, to show her the photos. Things are still tense between them, but Jack apologizes for standing her up and finally explains. He is a recovering alcoholic and worries it will be a problem for their relationship. Olivia tells her own story; Justine’s twin brother died when he was 13 and it broke up Olivia’s marriage. Jack now understands why she didn’t grant Cecilia and Ian the divorce they wanted. Olivia doesn’t want to talk about it and pushes Jack away. Now that she’s moving to Seattle, she doesn’t want to start a relationship.

Warren explodes in anger when he finds out Justine was spending time with Seth. She runs out of his house in tears, going to her mom’s. Seeing how upset her daughter is, Olivia takes the surveillance photos to Warren’s house and confronts him about the images, which show him with another woman on one of his business trips. She threatens to tell Justine about the pictures if he doesn’t break off the engagement himself.Cecilia and Ian visit Olivia’s courthouse to call off their petition to divorce. They’ve realized they want to make the marriage work. That night, Olivia heads down to the dock, where everyone in the town surprises her with a going away party. Olivia is touched as she mingles with all the people who mean so much to her. Jack even gives her a story he’s written about her farewell.

As Olivia reads Jack’s article, she realizes how much Cedar Cove means to her, and decides she doesn’t want to leave. She visits Jack at his office and hands him the story, telling him not to print it, and asks if they can try a relationship again. He gladly agrees. Later, happy to be home, Olivia presides over an official wedding ceremony by the water for Cecilia and Ian.

Author Bio:
One day while slaving away at her monotonous day job, Jennifer Martinez found her true calling. Like a firefly in the night, the pages called to her. Once she caught the bug there was no stopping it. Her fingers flew furiously across the keyboard winding tales of love, mystery and anger. She snapped out of her reverie to find herself still behind the desk but at least she knew who she was… Author Jennifer Martinez.
I like to think of myself as a beautiful conundrum. When I am not writing, I can be found surrounded by my amazing family and 4 dogs or volunteering at a local animal rescue. I love who I am and don’t mind at all when I get strange looks from people. I am a tattoo covered, child and animal lover who looks forward to destroying peoples preconceived notions of what “someone like me” would be interested in. You only live life once… you may as well make it interesting.
I love to get lost in a good book and hope that everyone will get lost in mine.

Excerpt:

A bed of orange, red and yellow flowers envelop me in my forest bed. The sweet song of the bluebirds rouses me from my sleep. All around me I see trees and feel at peace. “Maia,” I hear whispered behind me. “Come and find me Maia.” I turn and begin my search for the melodic voice that calls to me. His voice is getting farther away and now I am running to find him. The greens and oranges fade to browns and whites as I run through fall and into winter. His voice is getting louder, “Maia.” As I round the next snow capped tree I come face to face with beautiful silver eyes.
“You know my name. You were calling me.” I say in a breathy whisper afraid to disturb the peace of the forest.
“I know not only your name, but you. It is almost time for you to come home. We have all missed you.”
“But I don’t know you. How can you miss me?”
“It will all make sense in time Maia.”
He leans in close and kisses my cheek. The intoxicating smells of ylang ylang and pine enter my nose and send my nerves into a tizzy. His kiss is soft, almost as if a butterfly had landed on my cheek. The feel of his breath on my face sends the butterflies from my cheek to my stomach.
“Can I at least know your name?”
“Heaton, young Maia. My name is Heaton. I must leave you now. We will meet again soon.”

My Review:
