5 Star Rating The Read Bum, Kaylin Beach
January 26, 2017 Format: Paperback
"I have a confession to make. Last night, as you gave me your heart, I didn't offer mine in return. You're right. It's against the rules for us. It's against the rules for humans, too."

D.F. Jones is absolutely brilliant! I have said it before and I will say it again! The Ditch Lane Diaries series is really something special! Sandy's Story is the third book in the series and just might be the best one yet!

Jones really has a way with words. Her story is deeply etched into my mind and as I read, I could not stop. This is definitely a series that I need more of. In Sandy's story, we get a lot more information about Sandy and her past. We are finally able to get the inside scoop on her relationship with her guardian, Baldric! Oh, how could I forget! We also get to see how the three girls (Anna, Ruby, and Sandy) first meet! I really, really enjoyed that part of the book. It was nice to get that little piece of background information!

Book three really focuses on the Cambell Ridge Wards and Lucifer, as well as Sandy and her love interest! Can Sandy really be in love with her guardian? Is that legal?

The problem really starts when Luc's book gets into the wrong hands, which puts Sandy in danger. This is a very valuable book and somehow Sandy knows where it is. The war betwen the angels and the demons officially begins when Sandy is taken! Can Baldric help Sandy? Where was Baldric when Sandy was taken? Can anyone find her before Luc gets what he wants? What does Luc even want to begin with? You will have to read this book to find out! There is a lot of juicy drama in this third book and you definitely do not want to miss any of it!

"I paired them, Lord. Their love is not ordinary; it is extraordinary."

This book was my favorite so far! But the second book is a close second. I really, really, really loved the second book! I absolutely adore Sandy and Baldric's relationship! Those two have a very special sense of humor and I really enjoyed reading about them. I also fell for a new character in this book, Caiojezeal. We meet Caiojezeal when Sandy gets taken. He is not who he acts to be though and he really surprised me. Talking about him brings up the fact that Jones's characters are so detailed and lifelike. Jones does an amazing job at making her characters and story come to life around her readers. Each character has a story and a background, which allows them to become real in the eyes of the reader. There is nothing better than being able to put yourself into the book with all your favorite characters.

The Ditch Lane Diaries is a super unique series about love and friendship with a little bit of angel and demon drama sprinkled on top. I have never read anything like this series and it will forever be one of my favorites! Each of these books are filled with excitement, drama, lies, jealousy, love, and just about everything you can think of! There was never a dull moment when reading this series. I completely devoured each book and I am almost positive that you all will too! Add this series to your TBR list!!

5 Star Rating Blogger V. Bansal I loved it!!
Sandy's Story by D.F. Jones is definitely my favorite book in the Ditch Lane Diaries series. It has everything from action, romance, thriller and a lot of supernatural. Though I am sad that the series has ended, still what a great end!!

D. F. Jones has done everything right in the book. She answers all the questions, ties every loose end and does it with a style, keeping the integrity of the series. You will not be disappointed with the end.

The Ditch Lane Diaries is about three friends and how their life unfolds by the powerful gifts given by the creator.

The first book Ruby's Choice defined Ruby and her character. It is about her choice between two completely opposite yet intriguingly gorgeous men and how her gift from 'The Creator' changes her life.

The second book Anna's Way is about how Anna has to choose between the love of her life and her gift of healing given by 'The Creator'.

The author had always kept Sandy, the third friend, as a mysterious character. She always had this do-not-care attitude and lived it up. Finally, we get an insight into Sandy's life and her character. The relationship which she has with her guardian angel is also very intriguing. The best thing about this book is that nobody is left out. Everyone has a role to play in the final book.

The story line flows smoothly and flawlessly. The way the author has taken a single crime and created a war between the angels and demons is amazing. There is always something happening in the book at all times. I was always on edge of my seat with all the twists and turns. The constant mystery and suspense are nail-biting. The writing is fresh and natural. The dialogue and the characters are intimately intertwined. The character building for all the angels, demons and humans has been done beautifully.

D. F. Jones has somehow managed to capture the essence of 'The Creator' in her writing. She has shown His love and warmth, yet keeping His mysterious, all-knowing illusion intact.
I am looking forward to the next work from the author. I would recommend this series to each and everyone who loves a little romance and fantasy. This book deserves 5 out of 5 Stars.

5 Star Rating Shelbyville Times-Gazette reporter, Jason Reynolds
D.F. Jones has released "Sandy's Story," her final book in the "Ditch Lane Diaries" trilogy. (Dawn is her given name, but she uses her initials as her pen name.)
While I do not normally write about romance novels, which are not my thing, I decided to do so in this case since the author is from my area. The series is a gripping read, and I say that as a guy.
Each of the books in the series follows the adventures of a different friend in Middle Tennessee, with Rutherford County, Tennessee, playing a large role. The other books are "Ruby's Choice" and "Anna's Way."
Jones said the series is for ages 18 and up with what she describes as a "medium heat level" in the romance department.
Without giving too much away, reading the opening scene of "Sandy's Story" is not for the faint of heart. The story shows a traumatic experience that happens in Sandy's childhood. I would not recommend this novel for children due to the graphic nature of the scene or the romance factor.
"Sandy's Story" follows Sandy from her 9-year-old self in 1966, when she has the abusive experience, to her young adulthood in the 1980s. Jones told me she included the traumatic scene in part because children in that era "were seen and not heard," and she wanted to address the topic of childhood sexual abuse.
Each book in the trilogy reveals more and more of a part of a spiritual battle in which the three friends become involved, with each of them receiving special spiritual powers. The title character of "Sandy's Story" has a guardian angel, Baldric, who falls in love with her. The chief villain is the devil, or Luc.
"Sandy's Story" has been her fans' favorite so far in the series, Jones said.
Jones said Baldric is one of her favorite characters in the series. She said she would like to write a spin-off series from the "Ditch Lane Diaries," perhaps in 2018 after she finishes some other book projects. The future series may focus on the current characters' children.
Each book in the "Ditch Lane Diaries" features chapter titles that are named for pop songs from a particular decade; chapters in "Sandy's Story" are taken from the 1980s.
Jones' website is She is also on Facebook. Jones runs book specials on a regular basis. The novels are available in paperback and on the Kindle, and is part of the Kindle Unlimited plan, she said.

5 Star Rating, BeautyandtheBooks on September 15, 2016
"I knew without a shadow of a doubt, that Sandy's story would be my favorite in the series! I loved how much the author's writing grew with each book. Sandy was an amazing, funny, sassy, demon ass kicking heroine. Baldric was just everything! There was constantly something happening so I didn't get bored for a second! The storyline was creative and unique. I did cry at the end, though I won't say why, the author gave me more than I hoped for and made it okay. Seriously awesome series and one of a kind!"

Sandy's story is action packed! Loved it!
5 Star Rating Reader "I want more!"
D.F. Jones has satiated the starving bookworm in me. As a conclusion of a trilogy of book's..... This was a perfect ending. I cried. I laughed. I was shocked. And I have been left hoping for a way to bring these characters back into my life. I suppose for now all I can do is read them all again. Thank you for feeding my bookworm.

5 Star Rating Reader
I was so excited to receive an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. D.F. Jones wrapped up this trilogy proving beyond a shadow of a doubt she is one very talented writer! Sandy is my favorite of the three gifted friends, and I was curious as to how Jones would allow her character to evolve. Jones did not disappoint. Scarred by a tragic past, yet blessed with the gift of clairvoyance, Sandy lives a life not allowing anyone to get too close, but her guardian, Baldric, is the one being who just might help her heart heal. Jones's ability to weave forbidden love, personal healing, and the ultimate battle between angels and demons into a thrilling paranormal romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat!
5 Star Rating Reader Definitely 5 Unbelievable Stars
D.F. Jones does it again. Definitely a book you'll want to sink your teeth into. So well written, great plot, and entertaining characters that you can't help to fall in love with. A definite page-turner. This Series had me at book one and I couldn't put it down. Each story brings you closer to each character but this one was by far my absolute favorite. This book tells Sandy's story. I love her. And Baldric, what's not to love about him. This book is too good to give away too much so I'll just say that if I was an angel, this book would have me sprinkling love dust all over the place. High five DF Jones. Remarkable Read! 

From the Author

I love the characters of the Ditch Lane Diaries. I won't lie, Sandy's Story is my favorite of the three in the trilogy.
