First and foremost, I highly recommend that you go back and start with book one in The Sand Dollar Series, Penny for Your Thoughts. JD Boudreaux is a very detailed writer, and she also builds her stories over the span of her books. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea to read chronological or series type novels, but if it is this is the stuff right here. Everything flows beautifully and really just comes together to build you the reader into the world of the characters that you are reading about. I like that and am often excited to jump into the Sand Dollar books. I am bummed we will have to wait till 2019 for book three but I know it is already on my TBR list!!
This is more about Alex and Leigh. They were inseparable as children. Well, until Leigh’s family moved to another state and distance didn’t necessarily make the heart grow fonder in this situation. Now, years later they are given a second chance to rekindle the friendship they once had. Both find themselves living by each other again. Conversations seem to flow between these two as if time and distance never even existed but they are cautious and hesitate with each other. Over time it gets harder to deny the romance budding between the two, will they be able to put the past behind them and start anew? Can it work out this time? Will they ruin the friendship they just now reset?
I loved the idea of second friendship with the twist of romance thrown in there. It was a heartwarming story that just felt good while reading. This was the perfect sunny Sunday afternoon read for me, and exactly what I was in need of, just a little bit of a spirit lifter. Happy reading! Thanks for another great Sand Dollar novel JD Boudreaux!
