5-stars

Broken Sand Dollar was an amazing addition to the Sand Dollar series. The storyline continues to follow Alex as he faces his problems head on. I was surprised and excited for the return of Penny and this novel. Alex was faced with handling all three of the women who played key roles in the development of his character. Not once was I bored with this novel and I found it difficult to put down. Such a wonderful read and I truly loved seeing the change that occurred with each character.

BROKEN SAND DOLLAR is the final story in a trilogy and it’s important to read these books in order.

As with the other two books in the series, this is an extremely detailed story. It’s one of these stories that brings everything full circle and while I wasn’t sure what to expect – it all makes sense in the end.

Once again, the story is told from the male POV (side note: the prologue is a scene that features the cover of book 2 which I thought was super cool) and at times is a travel journal as we ride up the coast.

This whole series has been written with morals and values and is very clean.

4 Stars

This is the third book in the Sand Dollar series. The story picks up where it left off in part two. Leigh has run again and Alex is alone wondering what he did wrong. Sometimes when you give too much, you have nothing left to give. He decides to move back to Biloxi. Realizing that his life is off track, he decides to see a therapist. The therapist poses many questions that prompts Alex to do some soul searching. Through his self discovery, he has some breakthroughs.

Everything comes full circle in this story. Friends re-emerge and past mistakes are rectified. One lesson that is learned through this book is that you have to forgive yourself if you want to heal. The growth of the characters in this series is phenomenal. Through the trials and tribulations, they have learned lessons that enable them to stand on their own two feet. This was a very inspirational series.

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is the third book in the Sand Dollar series. I have enjoyed follow Alex on his journey over the years. Of the three books this is my favorite, the changes in Alex are so amazing and he finally finds his happiness.

I saw some of myself in Alex, he was always taking care of everyone else instead of focusing on himself periodically and this is something I have found myself being guilty of. His reason comes from his childhood as does mine but I like his a lot more.

Alex isn’t the only one who has gone through changes. Actually pretty much everyone changes in some way. Some are bigger than others.

This was a great series and I hope to see more this Author in the future.

It took Alex a while to get where he was meant to be but the wait I say was worth it. I love reading books where people find their place. It’s almost as if your not whole until you find that broken piece. I really like Penny and Payton. Both women really cared for Alex and showed a level of understanding that most women can’t even imagine. I really enjoy books by this author. They are both sad and touching. You get to feel so many emotions and experience what the characters do. It reads like your listening to this person face to face. It made it more relatable to me.

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is book three of The Sand Dollar Series. To better understand the events that take place in this book, I highly suggest reading book one and two first.

This series spans over years of Alex’s life. The author effortlessly weaves together present tense with flashbacks of Alex’s past. When you read the first two books you start to get an idea of how you think the third book will go but then it takes you on a completely different journey. Alex’s journey self reflection, coupled with the therapy he does, teaches him a lot about himself.

This book was very well written. I enjoyed seeing the differences in all the characters and how they reacted to different experiences. I was hooked as soon as I started reading this book. It was a great conclusion to the series!

A great read about forgiveness. Alex has always done his utmost to help people and care for them,, but sometimes he takes on too much. Withdrawing from it all after the events of the previous books, Alex tries to look after himself. Whilst doing so, he discovers that he is enough, but can he fix the broken relationships of the past or is too late?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Payton as funny but kind underneath or Leigh struggling with her feelings but still standing up for herself or Alex trying his best but still caring underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the supportive Lacey or the mother figure of Gigi loud and bubbly. This helped to create the sense of a family that sticks together and helps each other out which was a lovely touch. The only issue with this was that sometimes it felt like there were too many characters to keep track of and perhaps reducing this slightly would help the reader follow the narrative. I also liked Paytons story with her struggles with vision and life that were relatable and emotive and beautifully written.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the sense of home with the coast with its familiar sights and sea and sand and restaurants all welcoming to the characters for a sense of belonging. Or the garden and the little birds as one little corner of peace in their busy lives. The use of memories in the narrative worked well to display what happened to Payton with wonderful visual detail of the parks and the water and was easy to follow with the use of italics and didn’t distract from the narrative of the present. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.

Broken Sand Dollar is the third and final instalment in the Sand Dollar series by JD Boudreaux. These stories are always highly energetic and extremely busy. So much goes on and the author conveys so much and gives away so little, which keeps you riveted to each page. It is almost impossible to put down and easy to lose yourself in.

In this story, the characters from books one and two all come together to give a reader a stunning conclusion to the series.  This book was romantic, emotional and totally captivating. The characters, while different, meshed together well and left wonderful memories of their journey. The tale grabs your attention and holds it captive until the last word.  Never lacking in complexity and depth, it was a great way to pass a lazy weekend. I read in in one sitting because it was that good. Sad to be at the end of the series, but so happy to have got to experience the wonder that is the Sand dollar series. 5 stars.

Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by JD Boudreaux is the final book in The Sand Dollar Series. It is a wonderful conclusion to the story of Alex and his life. It is a must that these books be read in order each book follow on and come together nicely. It is a journey of fate, faith and being and finally finding yourself. The first two books were enjoyable but JD did well in this book to tie everything up nicely but it also felt like the story had matured much like the characters. It is an emotional read but it also brings much happiness. I loved the stupid phrases the main characters sprouted at each other that had me laughing out loud.

Alex has always been a giver a fixer but not so much for himself. The women in his life leaving him in one way or another. After his last turn at love goes wrong, he packs up and returns to the one place that he feels at home, and what he finds when he finally stops is the one thing he never thought he would have. But he also learns how far back everything in his life has lead to where he is now.

A great way to finish up the series.
