Operation Bailey Birthday by Piper Rayne is a beautiful written, heartwarming read and a touching goodbye to the Bailey family.

Each Bailey and loved one owns a special place in my heart and most of all is Grandma D.
From the first book she made an impression with me. I loved her honesty, her sass, her take no BS attitude and her love for each of her grandchildren.

I loved that we got to hear from the great grand children in Operation Bailey Birthday, it was fun and entertaining watching th

Let the "Surprise" Party Begin! It's Grandma Dori's 90th birthday and we are celebrating in style so grab a blanket a cup of coco (spiked of course) and sit back and enjoy because this is one book you don't want to miss!

I have truly loved every book in this series and I am so sad that this is the end of the Baileys.

I seriously don't love any fictional family so much like I do the Baileys. Operation Bailey Birthday was the sweetest and emotional goodbye to the most phenomenal small town romance series ever. I didn't know I need this novella so desperately in my life but Piper Rayne knows our heart the best.

This entire story is told from the kids' POV and that was simply awesome. The family is planning a grand party for 90th birthday of great grandma Dori that is supposed to be a surprise but in typical Dori

ALL THE HAPPY TEARS! What an absolutely wonderful tribute to this fabulous family! Operation Bailey Birthday by Piper Rayne is once again a thoroughly entertaining, captivating and heartwarming story that brings an end to an era, and one that I did not want to put down.

I gotta say, I loved every single moment and was elated at the glimpses and the perspectives we got from every Bailey grandchild and great grandchildโ€™s life. I ADORED seeing all of these gorgeous babies all grown up and it was suc

I was super excited to read this one. It's a short quick read. It's Grandma Dori's birthday and all the Baileys are back in town to celebrate. While the other books in the series dealt with Dori's grandchild in this one we get the POVs of some of her great-grandchildren. There are a lot of great-grandchildren and I honestly lost track of each couples' kids so I was glad that at the beginning of the chapters it tells you who POV it is, their age, and who their parents are.

A short, sweet and heartwarming end to The Baileys series, Operation Bailey Birthday celebrates the 90th birthday of the beloved meddling matriarch of the Bailey family. From beginning to end, you get to revisit the Bailey family; from siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. You get a glimpse into the future from the eyes of the great-grandchildren. There's plenty of antics, witty banter, love, laughter, and tears as the family plans the "surprise" birthday party for Grandma Dori. ...more

When the Bailey's series finishes, I wasn't ready to see it end. It has felt a little like watching my own family grow up. I have loved watching them all fall in love and get married and have babies. But I have especially loved G'ma Dori and Ethel conspire and plot and plan. They were hilarious and I am really looking forward to the next series where they turn their eyes to Ethel's family.

In this one we got the points of view of a handful of G'ma Dori's great-grandchildren. And through that we s

Piper Rayne has once again outdone themselves with this truly heartwarming story of the entire Bailey family! How do you even begin to say goodbye to a family that has embedded themselves into your heart and your soul....that is exactly what the Bailey family has done.

This book was such an emotional journey from beginning to end with each Bailey POV. I laughed, smiled, cried and felt a deep love for each character. This is such a bittersweet ending to the Bailey family even though we will get g

I can't believe it's over.. for now anyway! Gahhh.. I cried through this one. How could I not?! I feel like I am saying goodbye to a family I actually belong to. The Bailey's adopted me and treated me like one of their own and now it's time to move on. I am having a hard time letting go of them!

I absolutely loved this book. I loved that it was in the eyes of some of the Bailey children. We get to see their parents through their eyes and I just think that this was a brilliant way to say goodbye.

Operation Bailey Birthday is a celebration. A chance to reminisce on the good times and say a fond farewell to an extraordinary family. Piper Rayne gives us the wonder of family in all it's moments. From unexpected tragedy to the resilience of the powerful emotion, love. Through the bumps and bruises, there is beauty within the heartache, humor in the healing and hope for the future. So as I say a bittersweet goodbye to the chaos of the Bailey clan, I look ahead to the next chapter of that long ...more

Grandma Dori's turning 90 and she's not so subtly planning her surprise party. We get chapters from most of her grand and great-grandchildren, giving us some laughs, a little bit of sadness, and a happy ever after for the Bailey family.

This novella is the perfect end to this incredible series. It revisits every single couple, but from the point of view of one of their children, so you can understand the personalities of the next generation of Baileys and how they see their parents, aunts, uncles, and best of all, Grandma Dori. It ties off everything in a neat bow, although itโ€™s not all perfect, thereโ€™s some conflict between offspring and parents, which made it so much more real.

5 Star Review Operation Bailey Birthday (The Baileys #9.5) by Piper Rayne
Have you ever wanted to dive into a book and yet dreaded it too? That was the position I found myself in with Operation Bailey Birthday. Knowing that this book concludes one of my top series of all time, I knew was it was going to be bitter sweet.
This book was everything I hoped it would be and so much more. At the end although I was sad, I was left with a smile of my face. It was so great to be back with the Bailey family

This was the perfect ending to the Bailey series. I have read every book in the series and fell in love with every member of the Bailey family. If you loved them and will miss them as much as I will this is the perfect read to give just what you need.

Operation Bailey Birthday is the coming together of every member of the family, including all the kids, for Grandma Dori's 90th Birthday. And while her grandchildren are planning a "surprise" party, Dori is still up to he

Anything having to do with this amazing family is a must-read for me. I have to say that as wonderful as this story was it was also bittersweet. It made me smile seeing all of these kids and their parents but it also made me sad as there is no guarantee that these characters will have the chance to continue on in the Bailey 2.0 universe.

Each little glimpse of the possible stories of these kids made me want to see their stories and what will come from the snippets into their lives. I hope this a

I'm so sad that this crazy amazing series has ended. This series has always made me laugh uncontrollably. We went on a crazy ride with the Bailey clan and had the incredible experience of witnessing their journeys on finding love and increasing the Bailey numbers. I was shocked to find out just how many children they had. These Baileys sure love making babies.

This was a great book to conclude this series and introduce us to the new generation of Baileys. Everyone is planning G'ma D's 90th supri

As I happy we got a novella to kind of sort of wrap up The Baileyโ€™s series when I thought it was done after book 9? You bet I am.

Was I ecstatic to catch up on how all the members of the Bailey family are faring in their relationships and as parents? For sure.

Was I surprised that this was told from the older kids of those Bailey siblings? Absolutely, but also a bit thrilled to hear their voices.

Was there any doubt Dori would steamroll her entire family and get her wish about pretty much everythin

The Baileys is one of my favorite series and it is going to be so hard moving away from them but this was the BEST way to do it if it had to be done! This novella packs a punch to the heart because thought it is told in our favorite characters' POV, it is centered around our favorite matriarch's birthday and it was so freaking bittersweet but also perfect!

What a great wrap-up of the Bailey series! This novella took me less than an hour to read, but gave me all I wanted as far as catching up with the Bailey clan in the future. In the week leading up to G'ma Dori's 90th birthday party, each chapter is told from one of the next generation's POV. All those Bailey cousins! We still get the antics between the siblings, and see how the next generation has inherited those traits as well. There is a great set-up for the Greene family series, which is Pipe ...more

It is time to for Grandma Doriโ€™s 90th birthday and her family plans to honor her life and the wild and wacky woman that she is with a surprise party however she may end up being the only one that isnโ€™t surprised.

All her grandchildren and great-grandchildren arrive in town for the momentous day and catching up with not only their lives but their perspective on those they love and what is transpiring around them was so much fun.

The close family relationship is what has made this series so special

This was a great ending to The Baileys series! Iโ€™m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion.

Each chapter was a different POV, so it was a little disconcerting; I got used to one person, and then we went into someone elseโ€™s head. But overall I enjoyed the different voices, seeing their lives play out for a short while. Iโ€™d honestly love books for all the great-grandkids, but that wouldn't be realistic.

I think I'm one of those people who doesn't want to see the end of The Baileys series. I just feel like I'm part of their story after reading every single one of their stories, you know. And I loved this novella, especially that it's the POVs of the great-grandchildren. It also gives a little bit of teaser as to the next story which is The Greene family. It is a very fitting end to the series. And I hope the next series would be as good if not better, and maybe there's going to be some Baileys' ...more

I think that this is a cute story but I might have thought this was part of a different series or I missed a lot of books in the series. I remember Grandma Dori but not a lot of the other characters. I probably need to re-read them.
But I enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone.
