Debby's new release is Treasure Island is part of the Love Finds You series that so many of us have come to love. Summerside Press, publisher of the Love Finds You series says this: "The LOVE FINDS YOU™ series gives readers a taste of local life across the United States. The novels—uniquely titled after actual American towns with quirky but intriguing names—inspire romance and fun. Each fictional story draws on the compelling history or the unique character of a real place. Stories center on romances kindled in small towns, old loves lost and found again on the high plains, and new loves discovered at exciting vacation getaways."

It's a series that delivers wonderful books.
And now, here's Debby...

Love Finds You in
Treasure Island, Florida

Amanda, a bicycle shop owner in Treasure Island, Florida, and Jerry, a businessman from Atlanta, have always put their personal lives on hold to care for needy family members. After being jilted at the altar and never knowing her father, Amanda doesn’t want to risk the pain that love inevitably brings. Jerry’s parents face insurmountable obstacles after being diagnosed with age-related illnesses, so he puts his personal life on the back burner so he can always be there for them. They try to deny their mutual attraction, but everyone else makes it their business to bring them together. Is it possible that Jerry’s father, who refuses to give up on his never-ending and annoying treasure hunt, knows something that they all need to pay attention to?

Here's just a few lines of Treasure Island to whet your appetite:
“You married?” Mr. Simpson said.

“Stop it, Harold,” his wife scolded. “That is none of your business.”

“Oh, that’s okay.” Amanda glanced back and forth between the couple. She finally settled her gaze on Mr. Simpson. “No, I’m not married.” The heat of embarrassment crept up her cheeks.

“Jerry isn’t married either,” Mr. Simpson blurted. “He’s our only unmarried child. He hasn’t found the right girl yet.” He paused and narrowed his eyes for a moment. “I think it’s about time he settled down. He’s forty-five years old and not getting any younger.”



And here's a first for Patterings! Debby has a book trailer, and I loooove it!

Take a look at what Romantic Times Magazine has to say about her latest 4-1/2 star novel, Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida:

Mayne writes a wonderful novel about all of life's relationships, including son to aging parents, sister to sister, friend to friend, grandfather to grandson and, of course, love between a woman and a man. It's wonderful how she weaves all these different and complex relationships into one story and keeps it moving. This is one novel that will be treasured long after the final page is turned.

You can purchase Treasure Island from Amazon and CBD.

Tomorrow we have an interview with Debby--Be sure to leave a comment and tell a friend! :-)

  4. Matchmaking can work out well or blow up in your face. This sounds like a great book. If it's a contest, please enter me. You don't say if it is. I just learned that LOVE FINDS YOU are historicals, and they top higher than mysteries, which I never thought would happen.
