Wish I Had a Nickel
By J D Boudreaux
Wish I Had a Nickel is the second book in The Sand Dollar Series by J D Boudreaux. A heartwarming story for sure. A story that you can get lost in with great characters that you will come to love. Ms. Boudreaux has captured my interest and heart with this series.
Alex & Leigh have always been inseparable. Growing up it was natural to see one with the other. But when Leigh’s family moves out of state, the distance and separation cause them to drift apart. Fast forward 30 years and Alex & Leigh meet again. After years of separation will they be able to use their old friendship to build a new romance?
Ms. Boudreaux does a wonderful job of bringing the reader into the story from page 1. Watching Alex & Leigh’s friendship grow, the reader can’t help but be enamored of what they have together. Ms. Boudreaux pulls lots of emotions from the reader and keeps the story at a great pace. Memorable sub-characters help to move the story and Alex & Leigh’s romance along. Along with the Alex & Leigh, the reader is reunited with Penny from Ms. Boudreaux’s first book in this series which is fantastic because the reader is able to understand more about the characters and their interactions with each other. I was happy to read there will be a 3rd book in this series so I can go back and visit with the wonderful characters. My only caveat to this review is read book 1 first. I know most often; authors will release books in series that can be read as “standalone”. This is not really the case here. To get the most out of this book the reader needs to read both books. You will love all the characters and fall in love with the story and author! I highly recommend this book and author as someone that needs to be on your TBR list!
