Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery?

I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water.

Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of

Well, that was one surprise twist!
I am a huge fan of Piper Rayne's and have been for a while. I am thrilled that we are staying in Alaska with this new series THE GREENE FAMILY and I love seeing cameos of Grandma Dori from THE BAILEYS SERIES since she is besties with Grandma Ethyl who is the matriarch of the Greene Family.

In this first novel we have the Eldest of the Greene's Cade finding his HEA.. This series is about a blended family, Cade's mother tragically died when he was twelve years old
MY BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBOR was a good read, but I can't seem to connect with this author's writing after my much-loved reading of her series, "The Baileys".

This book is set in small town in Alaska and has all of the quirky characters and small-town gossip that you would expect. I like small-town romances for this reason. This book was a very emotional read. There are a lot of twists and turns and ALL THE FEELS. It's heartbreaking in parts, but funny in others.

As a series starter, this is very successful. As a romance, it's pretty lackluster. Introducing a complicated family, a new town, setting up several future relationships, AND developing a satisfying standalone romance is a lot to ask of a book, and this manages to do many of those things well. It's got a great small town vibe and this family has tons of potential. We've only seen glimpses of where this series will go, but I could already feel some of the future love stories coming together. Howe ...more

→ big family in a small-town

Cade is the eldest sibling in the Greene family. Even in the novella (My Twist of Fortune), I could already see he feels the most responsibility to care for his family even as a teenager. I loved seeing how he cares for his siblings and even their grandma in this book.

If you’re a Piper Rayne fan then you’ve probably already read her Bailey family series set in Alaska. And, if like me you couldn’t get enough you were super excited when they introduced us to G’Ma Dori’s best friends, grandchildren and a whole new Alaskan family series. Picking up this book was like walking back into the pages of the Bailey family. And since they are from the neighbouring town we had a few crossovers of characters and settings that made that feel even more familiar.

Meet the Greene Family from Sunrise Bay, Alaska.

My Beautiful Neighbor is the story of one of the oldest brothers, Cade. However, it is also a great introduction to the rest of the family (who I am already in love with), plus there are a few little pop ups and mentions of another large family in the neighboring town of Lake Starlight.

My Beautiful Neighbor was the first book in the Greene Family series by the authors Piper Rayne.

Cade Greene was the eldest Greene sibling. He was seventeen when we met him in the prequel, My Twist of Fortune, during his dad and step mom’s story. He was now thirty and a successful co-owner of Truth or Dare Brewery with his step brother, Jed. He was a favorite of mine then and My Beautiful Neighbor cemented it further.

Piper Rayne’s interconnected Bailey series was one of my favourites of 2020, so hearing the Greene family from the next town over were getting the same treatment had me so excited, especially after the hints we got in the last Bailey book. I was also so excited to see Dori and Ethel, the meddling Grandma’s matchmaking skills all over again!

Piper Rayne kicks off a new family series with My Beautiful Neighbor. Bar owner Cade is inexplicably drawn to Presley, the new girl in town. She’s arrived to settle a family matter, and ends up taking over the space next door to the bar, where Cade and his brother hoped to expand their business. He should see Presley as a rival, but all he sees is the pretty new girl he wants to get to know better.

There’s much more to the story, of course, because Cade and Presley start a no-strings fling and so

Oh my! This was definitely an amazing start for the first full length book in Piper and Rayne new series, The Greene Family! Just as an FYI, I did read the novella about Marla and Hank beforehand, My Twist of Fortune, and I loved that it gave me a chance to get to know each of the Greenes before their stories all were told. You can definitely start with My Beautiful Neighbor, but I personally liked getting to know everybody a bit made it so much fun to see them all grown up!

My Beautiful Neighbor was funny, delicious, emotional and so sexy. I enjoyed Cade and Presley so much. It had a fantastic family dynamic and a heat level that could melt the buttons off your kindle. I loved the ever small-town feel and can't wait for more of the Greenes!

5 Star Review My Beautiful Neighbor (The Greene Family #1) by Piper Rayne  

Where do I start? Having read and loved The Bailey series by Piper Rayne I was a tad anxious starting a new family series, I have no idea why I was worried. I loved this book, from the first chapter to the last.

The characters are engaging and I love the Greene family who reside in Sunrise Bay, Alaska. They are all up in one another’s business and it was an entertaining read that left me with a smile on my face.

A good kick off to a new series. Those were my first thoughts after finishing My Beautiful Neighbor. There were so many good things working in the story.

I loved the secret child twist. And having read the series prequel My Twist of Fortune, I really liked how that ending played into this story.

I'm a fan of small town romance, as well as big family series. And Piper Rayne is so good at both of those. I enjoyed the cameos from the Baileys and hope there are many more of those to come.

My Beautiful Neighbor is the first book in this new spinoff series from m Piper Rayne. If you read the Bailey's then you are aware that Dori's sidekick Ethel has many grandchildren whose life she plans on meddling in as well. This is Cade, the eldest Greene's, story, bit it is also a look into the loves of all the Greene children. I am so excited for this series.

Then she meets a gorgeous bartender, Cade, and suddenly her stay in town is looking better by the day. She has to guard her heart, though, because Cade may love his town and its people, but he isn't one to let someone into his heart. Will Presley be the one to thaw his heart?

Piper Rayne is back in Alaska, with the first Greene book. This time in Sunrise Bay. If you are familiar with Piper Rayne’s beloved Bailey Series you will love My Beautiful Neighbor. It is sweet, funny and filled with all the crazy shenanigans that comes along with a huge family in a small town.

I truly believe I was meant to live in either Vermont or Alaska. Between Sarina Bowen's True North series and now the Greene Family series from Piper Rayne, I'm even more confused as to where I should relocate. It's probably a pipe dream to end up in either state, but a gal can dream.

I'm loving the Greene family and the small town feel of this series so far. I'm completely jealous of Presley having the chance to start her life over in such a darling little town. It took a lot of guts to do what

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne is a sweet and very entertaining romantic read and I loved it.

I enjoyed the storyline, it's well written, well paced with great characters that I loved getting to know and held my interest all throughout the book.

Cade and Presley are likable, fun characters that made me smile and swoon watching them fall in love.
These two had a few bumps to get over but once they opened their hearts to each other you knew they were meant to be.

Oh how good it is feels to be back in Alaska. This time around Piper Rayne takes us to Sunrise Bay with the Greene family. They are a huge blended family that we got a glimpse of Lake Starlight.

As the first book in this series, My Beautiful Neighbor kicks it off perfectly. Cade Greene is a sexy co owner of a brewery. We meet Presley in the beginning during a funeral. Presley is a newcomer to Sunrise Bay, and no one seems to know who she is. I loved their story! I missed the meddling grandmas. Et

Piper Rayne has done it again. An all new small town in Alaska with its own brand of quirkiness and a quintessential family that meddles in everyone’s lives, laughs hard and loves even harder.

Presley is new to Sunrise Bay and as it is in small towns it doesn’t take long for the whispers to start. She had no plans of making Sunrise Bay her home when she arrived but she soon realized that this small town in Alaska may just be what she had been missing from her life.

Well we are back in Alaska, and it did not disappoint.

Cade is loyal, family oriented, and an all around good guy. He owns a brewery with his brother and now there is a new girl in town trying to take his building.

Presley is in town to open a bookstore and watching her interact with Cade gives readers the hilarious banter that we have come to love from Piper Rayne books. Their attraction is instant and the connection was apparent from the start.

The hero was the oldest brother and a gentleman to his core (🙄). His entire life he was solid relationship material.

Suddenly with no explanation he became a girlfriend phobe.
So, we got a lot of push and pull situations with the heroine and the longest slow burn.

I'm a 'burning the sheets in angst' kind of girl.
This was more the gentle kind of romance.
