Lily Rae Rose has been headstrong since she was a child. She was the oldest, after all. Maybe that's why she fell for the bad boy next door. But Lily learned that not all bad boys can be reformed. After suffering the pain of a broken heart, Lily dedicated herself to finding the perfect matches for her friends. This let her enjoy the benefits of love without the pain - until town gossip John Wolfe forced her to confront the pain of the past.
Daisy Mae Rose may be only minutes apart from her two sisters, but she always felt invisible as the middle sister. When a man makes her the center of attention, Daisy blooms under his loving care. That is until he joins the war effort and leaves her behind forever. But there was someone else who had loved Daisy in high school, and now he has returned. At their 70th high school reunion, he decides to see if there's a reason to move back to Keeneston.
Violet Fae Rose was always the wild one. After high school, she did the unthinkable for a single woman in the early 1960s...she left the small town of Keeneston and went to culinary school in France. While in the city of love, Violet fell madly in love with the one person she shouldn't. Violet quickly found out the downside of a forbidden romance and ran away to the French countryside to lose herself in her cooking. But sometimes it takes returning home to fully put things back together. Violet found peace in playing matchmaker with her sisters for many years. And then one day, Violet found herself on the receiving end of someone else's matchmaking.
Time can heal many wounds, but the Rose sisters' wounds run very deep. Will the three sisters finally find true love during their golden years? And better yet, can Keeneston even handle three Rose sisters in love?

So I cheated
This is the second of the Bluegrass Singles that I have listened to out of order, but I needed a pick-me-up! Oh boy! Was this a surprise! I cried so many tears for Miles and buckets full for Gemma but the Rose sisters? I cannot decide if I laughed or cried more this time round. What a fabulous tribute to these three legendary ladies!
If you've learned to love these meddlesome old biddies through all of the Keeneston stories, then you MUST listen to this.

Not what I was expecting, to say the least, actually better. I wasn't sure how Ms. Brooks was going to go about telling this story that spans so many decades. She did an abmorable job. As it is so closely tied into the entire Bluegrass series' I would not recommend reading this without reading the rest. There are a lot of characters and without the background, I would have been lost. There was a lot packed into this relatively short story.
I would like to have had a bit more background and information on Daisy and Anton's relationship as it progressed through the series and Violet and Charles from high school. These were pretty abrupt all in all. The story gave some good information setting up for the kid's stories yet to come.
