My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

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.

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 by JD Boudreaux is the third book in the Sand Dollar series.it is definitely best to read these books in order so you get the full story.
The author has done a great job with this book. Having read the first two books I thought I knew exactly what direction the third would take. However the author took that expectation and completely threw it out. And did it with such ease it made me wonder how I could have ever thought it would go differently.
This book has to be my favourite in the series. I loved reading about Alex and how he was portrayed. This is a great book and a great series.

Broken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux a four-star read that will put the broken pieces back together. This is the third novel in the Sand Dollar series, and I would whole heartedly recommend that you read them in order as they do flow and tell the whole story. Alex tells us his story and takes us on his journey, its one that will bring tears as well as laughter and joy. We watch as he learns and grows stating his own path that will bring him to what he most deserves. This is a beautiful story and one that will take you on a great journey.

I’m so sad this series is over but absolutely love how this author brought it all together and I was completely satisfied with all that happened in this book. I was off base with my predictions and I was sad at first but then it all made sense to me and I was very happy.

This has been an amazing series, I read book 2 first which was a big mistake because it had me all confused so had to go back and read book 1 to get some of the answers I needed.

I fell completely in love with the characters in all 3 books and loved some of the connections and bonds that were unbreakable and worth fighting for.

I will absolutely read this series again in the future and will recommend it to anyone that needs a good series to get lost in.

Many thanks to this author and I can’t wait to see what will come next.

Loved it!!

Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) By J D Boudreaux. From Page one I was drawn into this book. I highly recommend reading these in order. Each character brings their own unique traits to make this story filled with emotions. The characters aren’t the only ones relatable, the storyline itself is completely believable and I definitely found myself forgetting I was reading a book. The author has a natural way of drawing in readers and keeping them hooked. This was a wonderful end to a wonderful series that I’ll be adding to my rereading list for sure. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to everyone.

Broken Sand Dollar is the last book in the Sand Dollar Series by J D Boudreaux. As this is the last book in the series, I highly recommend reading the first two books in the series. The story has been building from the first book, Penny For Your Thoughts. The books are a contemporary love story. We follow Alex through his relationships, and it has been a big emotional ride. The characters are complex and can totally be a friend in the neighborhood. One main thing I liked about this story is that it was believable. I found myself talking to my kindle trying to get Alex’s attention. There are personal demons that the characters go through, but it was handled like my best friend would assist me in fixing my problems. I hope that you enjoy Alex and take the roller coaster ride like I did.

Broken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux is the third book in the Sand Dollar Series. I really recommend reading the first 2 books before reading this book. The story continues with Alex and his development and progress in life. I really like the story has not always followed the progress I thought it would take. The turns are great and very well done. Alex is a wonderful character whose kindness has brought wonderful relationships into his life. Each of these has helped him to grow as a person and all served a purpose in his life. I have really enjoyed this series and the realness of the relationships. The characters are not perfect and each has their own issues to overcome. I like how the author has handled the situations and made everything relatable. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
