More to Come!


via Hallmark: In “The Beach House,” Cara Rutledge receives a letter from her mother asking her to visit the South Carolina island on which she spent most of her summers growing up. Though she is skeptical, the timing couldn’t be much better for Cara as she was recently sacked from her high-powered job at an ad agency and doesn’t have much of a life outside of work. Cara also learns the devastating news that her mother is dying and won’t live past the summer. This news flips a switch in Cara, who suddenly realizes that she doesn’t have much time to make amends with the woman who she’s spent so much of her life resenting. Finally seeing clearly Cara moves into the beach house with a new outlook on what is important in life.

  1. Such a beautiful, classy. talented lady that only gets better with age. I know I'm going to love this new movie she's in......

  2. When will this air? I haven't been able to find anything recent about it.

    1. I've been wondering the same thing, Colleen. It was supposed to premiere this year, and it sounds like it would be a perfect title for Summer Nights, right?

      Well, I just recently discovered on www.whatsfilming.ca web-site that there is a TV movie being filmed from 8-15 to 9-15 titled Beaches. Could this be this movie? Maybe? Maybe Not? We should hear casting soon!

      As always - stay tuned!!! Thank you, Colleen, for your Question!!!

      Net -- "The Beach House" IS supposed to film in August, according to what one of our Facebook group members said that Andie told her when she met her recently.

      I don't know if it would be "Beaches," though? I wonder. That's a month-long shoot, and Hallmark's movies usually shoot for 2 or 3 weeks. It's possible it's a longer shoot, but that seems abnormal for Hallmark unless the movie is being shot in an unusual location, which doesn't seem to be the case.

      Also, "Beaches" is an old movie with Bette Midler and Mayim Bialik, so when I first saw the title a while back I wondered if it is being remade, as so many movies are these days.

      The timing is coincidental, but it might not mean anything. Or it might mean something. We'll soon see.

  3. when will Cedar Cove be back on TV with Andie MacDowell? Is see that one of the characters is going to be in the new Chesapeake Shores..

    1. I am sorry to tell you, Cedar Cove was cancelled last year. I wrote about it here. And, yes you can see lots of Cedar Cove stars in various other projects, like Barbara Niven in Chesapeake Shores or Dylan Neal in Gourmet Detective and much more!!!!

  4. Any updates on the beach house? They are making a new Beaches movie with Idina Menzel.

  5. anxiously awaiting the premier of The Beach House! any date yet? loved the book! cant wait!

    1. Unfortunately, I haven't heard any updates on this one, yet. It does sound like a perfect movie for Summer Nights, though!

      No hint there, intended, just a simple guess!

  6. I have really enjoyed Andy McDowell in many movies & screen plays.But I was quite disappointed to hear she was playing Cara in The Beach House. As an avid reader & fan of all the Mary Alice Monroe novel,I have read all of her books at least several times. Putting myself in and totally enthralled in each character,quite frankly Andy D.doesn't fit the character,age wise,description,and mannerisms. I was hoping for a fresh new face to bring all of Cara's strong,yet inspiring individual spirit to the screen. Their is that one perfect person to fill Cara's shoes. I'd hoped to have seen her, and the movie. Thank you

  7. Isn't The Beach House is supposed to be Spring Fling on Hallmark Channel? It's took too long when it's air on Hallmark Channel last year but this year, isn't it.

  8. Now it is 2017. What is truly happening with the movie/book"The Beach House" by Mary Alice Monroe? Has the movie actually been viewed? Has it been on tv or hallmark channel.Is it out & for sale in stores? I've been waiting.

    1. Yes, according to Hallmark's Press Release - where they announced the new slate of Hallmark Movies & Mysteries (HMM) PREMIERE MOVIES FOR 2017 - "The Beach House" was listed as one of the movies coming this year on HMM!
