Esther and Lizzie have a new employee, Rose Petersheim, to help them
tend to The Peony Inn. But their old matchmaking ways have stayed the
same. The sisters focus their efforts on the lovely twenty-five-year-old

her the best match for someone calm and good at listening. Someone like
Benjamin—the handsome handyman who recently moved to town.

sleuth around searching for Esther’s secret admirer, they uncover that
their grumpy renter, Gus, has a secret of his own that could bring about
a difficult change in all their lives. And their continued meddling in
Rose’s affairs reveals she, too, is hiding something—an old wound that
could threaten her future happiness.
As Rose, Lizzie, Esther, and
Gus struggle to release the weight of their pasts, they discover that
although people are complicated, love doesn’t need to be.
