Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series Book 1) by JD Boudreaux – Review by Michelle Austin

Penny For Your Thoughts (Sand Dollar Series Book 1)Penny For Your Thoughts by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny for your thoughts was a good four star read and book one in the Sand Dollar series.

Alex notices a woman on the side of the road with a flat, he turns around to help her and gets more than he bargained for.

Penny is a reporter and when Alex stopped to help her she let him in on a little secret. It seems she had been on the side of the road for hours and he was the only one to stop.

Fate steps in and these two end up running into each other at the mall getting lunch. They move forward from here and get to know each. They both have some things in their past that they are trying to move forward from. It was great reading how their relationship developed and the things that were challenging them.

It may not always be in front of you, but it’s there. My love is always there. -Alex

Maybe not every question leads to an answer, and maybe not every answer stems from a question.

Alex was very kind and had a big heart. Penny was up and down for me overall she was a strong character. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. I was emotionally spent by the time I was done and the ending really threw me for a loop. I need to see where this goes and hope it continues in book 2. J.D. Boudreaux does a great job of pulling you in with her writing. Overall I enjoyed this book and suggest you 1-click and get started today on this series.

5 Stars

I started this series with Book 2 and I know better than to do that but I really was excited to get the history of these characters as I had a few questions when I finished book 2, I did get some of the answers I was looking for and it’s really hard to judge but I really liked booked 2 better than this one and I can’t fault the author for that since Im out of order.

The writing in this one was just as fantastic as the other and flowed smoothly…It did drag just a bit in some places but I found I still didn’t skim ahead.

I do know that I can not wait to jump in to book 3 as I’ve become completely invested in these people and this story…I’m most interested in Payton, she has had me the most confused through this story and I need to see where Alex ends up and if he can ever find his happily ever after.

Loved this book and absolutely adore this series.

Penny for Your Thoughts by J D Boudreaux

Four Stars

Finding the right partner is always difficult even when the meeting is easy. When you take that next step and decide it’s really love. But what people I think people miss is that having a person to talk to or that takes care of you is different then loving someone. Penny and Alex learn the differences and it takes their relationship in a different direction. As the story progressed I noticed the moments that seemed forced between them. I noticed their need for independence. The author put a spot light on relationships that are done out of convenience. Relationships based on fleeting emotions. I really liked this story it wasn’t all rose colored glasses.

Born two days apart in the same hospital, Alex and Leigh grew up to be inseparable. They were fierce protectors of each other, and it was only natural for everyone to assume they would one day find their happily-ever-after together.

Unfortunately, nothing in life is that simple.

When Leigh’s family decided to move to another state, it was only a matter of time before the distance between her and Alex caused them to drift apart…until finally, the special connection they had shared was lost.

Thirty years later, fate offers a chance at reuniting, but is it possible to erase years of separation? Or will fate require a little help?

Can a matchmaking mother and a smart-mouthed daughter working behind the scenes help Leigh and Alex regain what was lost?

Penny has her future all planned out. Her new job as a reporter is the first step toward building a successful life for herself. Unfortunately, her first day on the job isn’t going as she imagined it would. On the side of the highway with a flat tire and open trunk all she can do is silently pray for a miracle…and then gets one.

Alex likes to think he’s a good guy—the type of person who loves to help others. A Good Samaritan. So naturally when he sees a woman stuck at the side of the road, looking all helpless his first instinct is to stop and help.

Little did he know that this one act of kindness would steer both their lives in an entirely different direction.

Wish I Had A Nickel (Sand Dollar Series Book #2) by J.D. Boudreaux – Review by Angela Hayes

4 Stars

 

Wish I Had A Nickel is the second book in The Sand Dollar Series by J.D. Boudreaux. I recommend reading book one before starting on this one, because it will give you a better perspective of this story and the ‘feel’ for the series as a whole. There are also other relevant details contained in book one because there is a bigger picture being ‘painted’- so having all the information is important. I enjoyed this book more than the first and it was apparent that the author was more ‘comfortable/confident’ writing this book. I do like the characters, they are interesting and likeable. There is a little more to them than first meets the eye. The story spans many topics from friendship, love, family, expectations, second chances, fate, and more. The story is set to continue in book #3, The Broken Sand Dollar, which releases in February 2019.

I look forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

 

Thank You, J.D Boudreaux!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Penny for your thoughts by JD Boudreaux is the first book in the Sand Dollar series and a first book for this author. It is a lovely story that will have you laughing and crying as we watch two wonderful people meet and fall in love. You will find yourself walking with them as they find their way to love, but is love enough? Penny and Alex have never met anyone that has ever felt so right. They have never met someone they could see a future with but loving someone and being there for someone are two different things and will they be enough?

To find out you will need to grab a copy.
