Meanwhile, Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and Jack (Dylan Neal) are happy to be back together after Jack makes Cedar Cove his permanent home. The reunited couple struggles to find Jack's son, Eric (guest star Tom Stevens), and help him take responsibility for his unborn daughter. When unexpected devastation hits Justine and Seth's new restaurant on Christmas day, the big heart of this small town is something everyone can count on.
