Love always finds a way...

Lily Rae Rose has been headstrong since she was a child. Maybe that's why she fell for the bad boy next door. But Lily learns that not all bad boys can be reformed. After suffering the pain of a broken heart, Lily dedicated herself to finding the perfect match for her friends. This let her enjoy the benefits of love without the pain . . . that is, until town gossip John Wolfe forced her to confront the pain of the past.

Daisy Mae Rose may only be 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. But the unthinkable happens when 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.

Violet Fae Rose was always the wild one. After high school, she did the impossible . . . she left the small town of Keeneston and went to culinary school in France. While in the City of Love, Violet falls for the one person she shouldn't. Violet quickly finds out the downside of a forbidden romance and runs away to the French countryside to lose herself in her cooking. But sometimes it takes returning home to fully put things back together. Violet finds peace in playing matchmaker with her sisters. Then, one day, Violet finds herself on the receiving end of someone else's matchmaking.

All of Kathleen's books are great and this is no exception. It was great to know the story of the Rose sisters. They are such wonderful, noisy caring women too bad their first loves were jerks. mjw

Really loved this cute book. The beginning of the book I thought the theme was boys are dawgs with all the boy problems the sisters had. The whole book was very involved and the sisters sure did go through a lot. Can't wait for the next one.

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.

This book starts off by giving us the back story on Lily, Daisey and Violet's love lives. All three of them have been burned and start to become matchmakers in order to find happiness in other people's love. Lily and John Wolfe's story comes to light in this book and it was nice to read. Daisey and Violet both find love in unexpected places and the story was told in such a nice way that you were kept apprised of how all of the characters in Keeneston were doing throughout all of these years and how Lily has set a plan in motion which will set up the next series. It was a nice, quick read and well worth my time and money.

I have enjoyed all of Kathleen's books. Reading about these sister's lives and the roads that led them to their current status was wonderful. I enjoyed how characters were tied together and how things look as though they will be carried on by younger generations. I envision knowing people in this town and find myself wondering whats happening in their lives. Loved this book and look forward to more!

Wonderful story of the The Rose Sisters! Now I have to go back and re-read the other books about the Keeneston residents. Kathleen Brooks writes about strong women and the people in their lives. Now we know how each of the sisters came to be.

At first it's like "uhhhh", then like "ok, better", but ends like "Yessssss". At first I didn't think it was Rose sister like. But it ends strong and fabulous. Like we know them to be!!! Ended up loving it.

The anticipation is over for the story of the three sisters who are the heart and soul of Kathleen's fictional southern gem of Keeneston, Kentucky. The childish rivalry, to the teenage dreams, to young heartache, to picking up the pieces and finally living. All my questions were answered as I laughed, cried, remininced, cheered, and cried some more. This is the best work from Kathleen and proved just what I expected of rivaling Final Vow. It was erie how much I related to Lily, Violet, and Daisy in the young adult lives and battling with the same fate. In the same time it has given me strength to move over that hurdle as well. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but soon. I was brought to my knees when the day came for the triple crown which was the highlight of the story. Those men and women showed their appreciate and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Fictional or not Keeneston as a community is a powerhouse and they protect their own and show how much love and dedication run alond Main St and within the walls of Blossom Cafe. Here is to a wonderful journey and putting 90 years in plain sight.
