The Delight

The Bailey’s are back for a wedding. After the failed wedding of Brooklyn, everyone is determined Austin and Holly are going to go down the aisle, but the honeymoon may be in limbo with the high school baseball team headed to a state championship.


Operation Bailey Wedding is told from a lot of different perspectives with insight on all the new relationships that have popped up in the last year or two. Austin and Holly are headed to the alter, but not everything is roses. They planned the wedding and honeymoon when the high school baseball team had no chance of going to state, but as the date gets closer, Austin is sweating. He intends to put Holly first in everything in his life and will leave the team in Jack’s (his best friend and co-coach) in charge, but Holly isn’t having any of that.

Then there is Brooklyn and Wyatt moving into a new house that he bought. He doesn’t see it as he bought it, but it is a little sore spot as Brooklyn is trying to get her business off the ground. Wyatt has the ring and wants to ask Brooklyn to marry him, but really is a family wedding the best time to ask…even if she has found the ring? I love this couple and their innocent view of life even after all the crap they have dealt with.

Rome and Harley are now the parents of two kids and in that six week zone where making love is off the table. Sleepless, stress eating, and a terrible two’ with an infant are keeping these two on their toes. It was a true sense that they were new parents, missing the closeness they experienced before baby #2 came along.

Denver laments the fact that his twin brother now has someone else in his life and gave up the wingman position to Liam who also appears off the market. Not ready to turn in his single life, he expresses some of his displeasure to anyone who will listen. His book is not too far away!

Finally we get more information about the next sibling to fall in love, but then again they have been hinting at it through the whole series. Grandma Dori has her eye on these two and her hands deep into meddling!

A bit confused, it says “Birth of a baby daddy” but it’s called “Operation Bailey Wedding”? Either way. I haven’t heard of this series before, but the shoes and flowers caught my eye. I’m not usually big on romances but when I see a good review for some of them I have to go check out the rest in the series.

I do love when an author gives me a nice ‘catch up’ story with all the characters. Lots of fun stuff in the family. 🙂

I have not read this author yet but I have a feeling that this would be a series that I would enjoy. It sounds like there is a lot going on in this one for a shorter work. Glad you enjoyed it, Shari!
