Operation Bailey Wedding was a novella by the authors Piper Rayne from their Bailey series. It should be read in order of the series for full enjoyment.

True to form, the Bailey siblings were out in full force and the authors caught us up on each one. The premise of the story was the preparation for Austin and Holly’s wedding, with each sibling’s involvement. Ultimately it was a quick read with some funny moments.

The authors also used it as a bridge to set the stage for Savannah and Liam’s story

So Piper Rayne wrote this book because we have to wait for-freaking-ever for the next installment of the Bailey family. And while I expected it to be a cute little epilogue to Austin and Holly and for us all to witness the much anticipated wedding. I expected a little wedding drama and a few laughs and a whole heap of love.

I didn't expect so much of the other siblings stories, both existing couples and teasers for the new couples to come. Now I am dying for the next book even more than I

Operation Bailey Wedding by Piper Rayne was everything I was hoping for and more. What a satisfying little appetiser to tide readers over until the next full length Bailey book is available. I have been missing the Bailey crew, and this book was the perfect way to get my fix. Filled with the signature humor I have come to love from Piper Rayne and a whole lot of sweetness.

There were twists and turns throughout, and it was so much fun to catch up with the other family members. I loved and

I loved this novella. It might have been short, but it was so sweet. And I really loved the format Piper Rayne chose to write it in. I felt like I really got to check in with everyone. Not only the couples from the previous three books, but also the rest of the Bailey group and a certain best friend.

The family connection, and even the fighting, was heartwarming and often hilarious. I ended the book smiling because I felt this was such a great little addition to the series. This story also has me
5 stars

Operation Bailey Wedding by Piper Rayne was everything I was hoping for.

We get to catch up with all our previous couples, and seeing how life has been treating them plus enjoy the wedding between our eldest Bailey, Austin and his soul mate Holly.
These two are so good together, I couldn't stop smiling watching everything unfold.


And for me an extra bonus was getting a little teaser of the Bailey siblings to come in future books.
Can't wait for Savannah & Liam's book in Falling for my

I didn’t think it was possible but this made me even more excited for the rest of the Bailey series! I need ALL THE BOOKS!!!

Ooohhhh! What a great way to catch up with the Bailey family. I loved it.

A Wedding! It's finally here, The Big Day, Austin and Holly are getting married and everyone has gathered to bear witness but as you can surmise with this being the Bailey Family things don't go as smoothly as they hope they would.

There is so much going on with each of the siblings and the extended family that I'm surprised it fit into a novella. This was a quick fun read that has some sexy moments with lots of laughs and a happy couple finally saying I DO.

I cannot tell you how much I have been
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Anyone who has been reading the Bailey series by Piper Rayne should know what to expect with a Bailey wedding about to take place…CHAOS, but in the very best of ways. All the Baileys are front and center as Austin Bailey (the oldest of the siblings) weds his once one night stand turned boss turned love of his life, Holly Radcliffe. Of course nothing goes as planned because it’s the Baileys but it all does work out. I loved seeing all of the siblings again, those that are in relationships, those ...more

This was short and sweet! I’m giving it 5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion.

I’ve been missing the Baileys, and I’ve been (impatiently) waiting for the rest of the series to come out. It was nice to get a sneak peek into future relationships, and also get more about past ones. We had chapters from a lot of different POVs (Holly, Austin, Brooklyn, Savannah, Liam, etc.), and I enjoyed each one. You definitely need to read the first three books in this series

It’s the wedding we have all been waiting for and it was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. This book was so much more than I expected and everything I didn’t know I needed in my life.

In true Bailey fashion there is so much chaos surrounding Austin and Holly’s wedding, both with them and the rest of the Bailey clan. The wedding was BEAUTIFUL and everything that I would have expected for the Bailey’s. The family came together and celebrating the first of what I’m sure will be many Bailey weddings.

It’s Time To Get Hitched

I just love a wedding. All the Bailey’s are back in Lake Starlight to celebrate. It’s about to get a little crazy.

The first Bailey is about to get hitched and if it can go wrong it will. Holly and Austin will just need to remember what’s most important.

Chaos and love is synonymous with the Bailey’s and this story will deliver on both. Either way you’ll get caught up with the whole clan. Enjoy!

I was expecting something else, to be honest, Definitely not this "let's get caught up with every character in the past and future books" plot surrounding the wedding.

5 Star Review Operation Bailey Wedding (The Baileys #3.5) by Piper Rayne

From the first book in this fabulous series, Piper Rayne had me hooked. In fact there is not a Bailey that I don’t love. They are such a great family and their friends are just as awesome. I really love small town romances and have often found myself often wishing that I could be a part of the Lake Starlight , Alaska community and a member of the Bailey clan.

Piper Rayne write strong characters that are so easy to relate to

"This is life with the Bailey's, but I wouldn't change it for anything."

The most loving, complicated and funny family that you know is about to gain a new member. And five days before the wedding, it seems like anything can happen. Even the unlikely. And when it happens, one question hangs in the air: What happens to the honeymoon?

Is it possible to fall in love over and over again? If you are talking about the Bailey's that's totally possible and true. What is absolutely not possible is to put

I love these small novellas that show you small glimpses of some of your favorite book characters.
Of course, this book is even more special because I am obsessed with the Baileys! They are the best and always makes me laugh. This novella visits every couple we have been introduced to so far, and we get to see a little of there lives.

But what I loved the most is all the teasers this novella gave me. I can't wait for the next couple of books in this series, especially after this one big

5 Stars!

Piper Rayne has done the unthinkable in the best ways and given fans (me! me! me!) of Lake Starlight and the Bailey's series a fresh novella. If I didn't love this series already, after this book I'd be head over heels. Operation Bailey Wedding was the perfect addition to this series... a fun, sweet, sexy, swoony, laugh out loud romance that made my heart soar with all the good feels and left me loving this crew of people even more by the time it was over.

My love grew big for this

This story had me mesmerized from the very first chapter and every page in between, until the very end. This book was equal parts humor and drama making it another perfect Bailey family story. I thoroughly enjoyed the POV's from each of the Bailey Clan and getting a peek at everyone's impression of what was unfolding. If you thought this wedding would commence without any hiccups, think again. It wouldn't be a Bailey event without some twists and turns that had you on the edge of your seat with ...more

I didn’t know how much I’d been missing the Baileys since I started reading and, I have to say, it felt like coming home.
To me, this is the perfect little morsel to keep the readers at bay while waiting on the next Bailey book. Operation Bailey Wedding is not only about Austin and Holly’s wedding, but an overall glimpse of our favorite family and I don’t think it could have been any better with the right amount of romance, drama, sexy and fun times in good Piper Rayne fashion.

Loved this little novella with the Bailey family!!!! It just gets me extra excited for the rest of the books in this Bailey family series. I loved taking a look back on the older couples, and how their lives are. I could not put this book down at all. It's only short but I did not mind at all. I just loved it! I can't wait for Savannah and Liam's book next!
absolutely cannot wait for the next in this series!! If you haven't started this one yet, do it!

I love the Baileys. Being back in their world is always a special treat. I love how Piper and Rayne gave each character their own chapters. I love catching up with all the new town gossip. It was hands down a perfect novella. You know what I’m super excited for?? LIAM AND SAVANNA!!!!!!

Very cute story that brings us again to Starlight town, with the wonderful Bailey siblings. The scope of the story covers the day before Austin’s and Holly’s wedding day, including sibling bickering, preparations, couples updates, etc. It’s very cute and romantic and unfortunately short. It also paves the way into the next book, Savannah’s story. Since the story was short, it felt like a short visit that makes you crave more, or at best, re-read the previous books in order to visit these old ...more

I’ve been missing the Bailey crew and Operation Bailey Wedding is a short & sweet glance into Austin and Holly’s wedding. We get the entire Bailey clan, along with some twists and turns that are unexpected and a glance into the characters of the next Bailey book. This was a perfect addition to the series and I truly enjoyed it! Definitely check out the entire Bailey series!

I am in LOVE with this series and ALL The Bailey's! This was a cute novella to catch us all up on the happenings of The Bailey clan as they prepare for a wedding.
