Peony foliage may occasionally turn yellow and it may be related to diseases, weather or the soil. Be sure the soil drains well and that you are not over fertilizing. Too much nitrogen fertilizer can stop plants from flowering. You may want to cut off the yellowing leaves to make room for healthy new leaves. Be sure to water deeply but don't keep the soil too soggy, either. Good luck with your peonies.
