JD Boudreaux really has rounded this series out beautifully with ‘Broken Sand Dollar.’ I am sad to see these characters and their stories end but when an author writes it so well you are at a peace with it that you really can’t complain, a rarity that you will find from us bratty readers! {lol it’s NEVER enough} So, kudos really for doing so well with that here. I would highly recommend that you read both books one and two and in order before you start this one for the maximum enjoyment of the series and the book, and well so things just plain make sense.

Broken Sand Dollar really threw me for a loop when it came to Alex. I had expected things to turn out way differently for him than they did, and I am actually glad they went this way. Everything made such perfect flawless sense in the end, much like life often does, even though we never really understand it in the moment. I can’t wait to see what will come next from JD Boudreaux. I am positive it will be just as outstanding as her Sand Dollar series, if not better! Happy reading!

Wish I Had a Nickel
By J D Boudreaux
5 Stars

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!

“Broken Sand Dollar” is the wonderful end of the Sand Dollar series by JD Boudreaux. I highly recommend reading the first two books before reading this one so you really know what is going on and get a feel for Alex’s journey. This book was such a treat to read. I LOVED the previous books and have been waiting for months for “Broken Sand Dollar” and it did NOT disappoint! This series spans years of Alex’s life, some in real time and a lot in flashbacks and JD Boudreaux did an amazing job weaving the story together. At the end of “Wish I Had a Nickel,” I could have told you exactly what I thought was going to happen to Alex in “Broken Sand Dollar.” Oh boy was I wrong! The turn of events in this book felt so right for Alex and what he has learned through therapy and self- reflection. The ladies of his life are all wonderful characters that all taught Alex something important and it was so great to read a book that touches on mental health and growth in such a positive way. So, I obviously loved this beautiful conclusion and give “Broken Sand Dollar” five well- earned stars!

Wish I Had a Nickel (The Sand Dollar Series Book 2)Wish I Had a Nickel by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wish i Had a Nickel is book two in the Sand dollar series by JD Boudreaux. It is a tale of friends to lovers that was full of drama and feelings. This author brings the characters to life in a very clever and enthralling way.

Alex and Leigh were joined at the hip until separated by miles. They finally reunite, and begin on a journey of rediscovery and capturing back the connection they had so long ago. This story happened fast. So rast, I wasn’t ready for the finish. Each character is highly detailed, leaving no questions about who they are and what they want. Learning about them was exciting and breathtaking. The connection Alex and Leigh shared was riveting and certainly kept me glued to every word. I absorbed all that they felt, all that they wanted, all that they could give each other. It is always bittersweet when the end of such quality stories comes before you are aware it is happening. So engrossed with their story, it comes out of nowhere. What an experience it was to read Wish I Had a Nickel. I cannot wait for the next story in the Sand dollar series. 4 stars.

From start to finish, what a beautiful story. I am not ready for this series to finish but what a beautiful way the author chose to wrap up the series. Unexpected yet relatable, these books and characters continued to touch my heart strings and resound loudly with my soul. Beautifully stirring, this story from first page to last is a treasure. Boudreaux is most definitely a beautifully gifted storyteller.

5 out of 5 stars

The story Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by J D Boudreaux is a wonderful book that I loved reading. It is a story that is both emotional and romantic. The book hooked me in from the very beginning and I found myself lost in its pages. I loved reading this story just as much as the first two. I enjoyed reading about the characters in the book. Alex, Penny, Leigh, and Payton are characters that are all brought forward into this story from the first two books. They are characters that I cared about and wanted them to be happy. The story is at times inspirational and has heartwarming moments. Alex is a man whose past relationships have not gone well. He is someone who feels he needs to save everyone. After all the disappointments he has gone through he has returned to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, a place that has always had a piece of his heart. What does the future hold for Alex? Read this book to find out. My emotions went up and down when reading this story. There is bantering and interactions between the characters. Some of them show the deep emotions and feelings that the characters face. There is witty and moving dialogue. Don’t miss out on this wonderful and amazing story that is sure to capture your heart! I highly recommend it.

This has been a series that I have enjoyed from the first book and this book is no different. It is a story that took me on an emotional roller coaster from laughter to a few tears. It is a sweet romance story that rips at the heart strings but also made me mad in parts. I enjoyed how the characters make me feel as if I am part of the story. They will show you that love isn’t always easy but it is true. I highly recommend reading the conclusion to this series, you won’t regret picking it up.

Penny For Your Thoughts: A Sweet Romance (Sand Dollar Series Book 1)
By J D Boudreaux
4 Stars

Penny for Your Thoughts is 1st book in the Sand Dollar Series for J D Boudreaux. A quaint southern romance This was a cute and totally enjoyable story with not only charming characters but with interesting secondary characters that capture your interest.

Penny is a planner. She has planned out her life and is taking the first step by getting a new job as a news reporter. She’s always been able to achieve success because of her determination but things aren’t going smoothly for her new start. Stranded on the side of the road Penny gets help from a passing motorist. But there seems to be more than meets the eye with this handsome Good Samaritan.

Alex thought he was your average good guy. So, when he spots a car stranded on the side of the road, he doesn’t hesitate to stop and assist the motorist. He’s not expecting this one act of kindness will irrevocably change his life. But isn’t that how fate works??

While I enjoyed reading this book, I was disappointed that there seemed to be items that were just left dangling. I don’t know if these will be addressed in the next book but I felt I was left with a lot of “what happened next” times during the book. The scenes Penny and Alex were priceless, I could have read more of those, for sure! This book has all some good feels, friendship, romance, and the story comes together nicely. Looking forward to having these characters pop up in future books.
