[Release Day + Blog Tour Review] OPERATION BAILEY BIRTHDAY (The Baileys #9.5) by Piper Rayne

Source:  Received an egalley to participate in blog tour.
Also purchased a Kindle copy.
Release Date: November 17, 2020



Rumor around town is a certain matriarch of the Bailey family is having a BIG BIRTHDAY! It’s even spurred a few of the Bailey kids to return home to celebrate with their beloved great-grandmother, Dori. In fact, now that there are twenty-six Bailey great-grandchildren the event is going to be overflowing with laughter and love. Also… I heard that Piper & Rayne been speaking to some of the kids (i.e. Calista, Maverick, Easton, Brinley and Palmer) and so we’re getting some special POV’s I can’t wait to report my findings the day after the party!



Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have "Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle" (okay...you caught us, that's our tagline).

A little about us... We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We're both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We're both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.

Oh my. Somehow 9 books and 3 novellas in, and I’m still not ready to let go of this series! I absolutely love all of the Baileys so much and this series has been a true pleasure to read! The deeper you get into this series, the more you grow to love them all, and at this point I really do feel like a part of their family at this point...so I'm definitely sad to not have any "Bailey" stories after this, but luckily Piper and Rayne have already hinted at future cameos in their upcoming series, The Green Family, which happens to take place one town over from Lake Starlight in Sunrise Bay featuring Grandma Dori's bestie, Ethel's family. :) 
 Okay, now that I've let out that little bit of sadness, let's talk about this novella! First, I loved that with this novella we get to see a glimpse into the future for all of the Baileys! I especially loved that it centred around our beloved Grandma Dori...she definitely deserves to be celebrated and surrounded by all of her loved ones! It was so neat to see the kids getting older, and so many of them are so grown up now!!! It honestly went too quickly for me, and I could've read way more, but I still really enjoyed getting a peek at all of the kids' lives and seeing their parents' from their POVs...which was just as hilarious as expected! haha
Overall, I thought that OPERATION BAILEY BIRTHDAY was short, sweet, and the perfect treat for any fan of The Baileys series! While the series has come to a close, I'm hoping that we’ll be seeing lots and lots of cameos and glimpses into their lives through the upcoming The Greene Family series...fingers crossed that we get some cameos in every book! haha I also wouldn’t be opposed to a spin-off series for the great grandkids. ;) If you're a fan of this series already, you definitely don't want to miss this one, and if you haven't started The Baileys series yet, I highly recommend it to anyone who loves small town contemporary romances! I have to admit that it's been a very long time since I've committed to a long series, but I did it easily with The Baileys because I genuinely couldn't wait for each book and every single one of them was such a delight to read!

Star Rating:


Anyone else a diehard fan of The Baileys series and is sad to see it come to an end?

If you haven't started this series yet, are you planning to check it out?
