Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat, The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartache Blues, an exuberant and poignant new audiobook of passions, family, and forgiveness.
When a late-life love affair blooms between Mr. Forrest Payne, the owner of the Pink Slipper Gentleman's Club, and Miss Beatrice Jordan, famous for stationing herself at the edge of the club's parking lot and yelling warnings of eternal damnation at the departing patrons, their wedding summons a legend to town. Mr. El Walker, the great guitar bluesman, comes home to give a command performance in Plainview, Indiana, a place he'd sworn - and for good reason - he'd never set foot in again.
But El is not the only Plainview native with a hurdle to overcome. A wildly philandering husband struggles at last to prove his faithfulness to the wife he's always loved. And among those in this tightly knit community who show up every Sunday after church for lunch at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat are the lifelong friends known locally as "The Supremes" - Clarice, facing down her longing for, chance at, and fear of a great career; Barbara Jean, grappling at last with the loss of a mother whose life humiliated both of them; and Odette, reaching toward her husband through an anger of his that she does not understand.
Edward Kelsey Moore's lively cast of characters, each of who has surmounted serious trouble and come into love, need not learn how to survive but how, fully, to live. And they do, every one of them, serenaded by the bittersweet and unforgettable blues song El Walker plays, born of his own great loss and love.

This is a good story; alone or as a sequel.

I love these characters from the first book! They are comfortable and familiar, as if they were members of my own community. Good to know the back story of James and the Robinsons. I love the new characters as well. Just as with Jan Karon's "The Mitford Collection," a similar small town series, I look forward to hearing more from the good and not-so-good characters of Plainview, Indiana.

One last note ... I felt Pamela DePella's absence as the voice of Odette in this audio presentation. Paired with Adenrele Ojo, the audio experience has a good contrast and is more enjoyable when I revisit the first audio book.

Good Follow up!

This is an excellent to!low up of the characters introduced in the first book about theSupremes at Earl''s Diner. This. Story gave you more insight on the now older characters and the event in their lives that shaped them to be the kind of adults they become. The effects their parents have on each of them is. better understood. It's a good listening book ,I enjoyed the very color full characteristics of each new person introduced.
