Broken Sand Dollar is the third and final book in The Sand Dollar Series by J.D Boudreaux. As this is a continuation of a storyline, starting from book one and concluding through to this one, I really recommend reading the other books before jumping into this one. Having all that information will give you a much greater perspective of what’s happened and how we got ‘here’. There are also very relevant details contained in the first two books and having all the information is important.
I enjoyed this book more than the first two and I appreciated that the whole thing felt like the author had really hit their stride, and was seemingly ‘comfortable and confident’ with their story, characters and style.
There is a little more to it, than first meets the eye, and did have me wondering a fair bit. The author certainly didn’t take it easy on Alex, putting him to the test, over the course of the series. Alex has been quite unlucky in love, suffering several big disappointments. Things were not meant to be, but that doesn’t mean he has come out of it all unscathed. He has chosen to return to the one place that has always held a piece of his heart, the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. Here he does some soul-searching, which results in some self-realization. The story was quite engaging- with some drama, frustration, self-discovery, emotion, and more. Definitely my favourite of the three books, and a great way to wrap up the series!
I wonder what J.D Boudreaux has in store for us next?
Thank You, J.D Boudreaux!
