Things haven't been the same in town since a man died at the bed-and-breakfast. Turns out his name was Max and that Bob Beldon, the owner of the Thyme & Tide, knew the dead man in Vietnam. No one has any idea why Max came to Cedar Cove, or - more importantly - who killed him... But there's plenty more news to share. Jon and Maryellen are getting married. Olivia is back from her honeymoon, but trouble is just around a corner...And Maryellen's mother, Grace, has more than her share of interested men. The question is: which one is she going to choose?
