What readers are saying …


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.
—Romantic Times Book Review, 4½ Stars

Debby Mayne's novels always feel like the most comfortable vacations. With her keen sense of detail and setting, the coast of Florida comes alive in Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida. Jerry is appealing, Amanda is sweetly gun-shy and admirable, and the secondary characters are finely developed and immediately endearing. The inspirational message of unconditional love is touching and heartfelt. Once again, Debby Mayne has a penned a novel I didn't want to end.

I was actually sad when I finished reading Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida because I wanted to continue hanging out at the bike shop with Amanda, Jerry, Timmy, Rosemary, and Harold to see what would happen next in their lives. Debby Mayne drew me in at the very beginning of her book with her vivid description of Treasure Island. I am now planning a road trip with friends to go have lunch at Captain Kosmakos in Treasure Island. We hope to see Jerry’s parents riding around on their bicycle built for two. Their antics and banter were a funny but poignant part of the story. I love Debby Mayne’s style of writing, as she develops her characters in a story that incorporates romance, values, morals, humor, and real-life hardships and issues. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading her other books soon.

Excellent, excellent, excellent. Did I mention it was excellent? Debby Mayne is a gifted and talented writer who has the ability to bring a setting to life. Her characters are people you want to spend time with and stay with you long after you’ve finished the book. Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida, is such a fun read that I finished it in two sittings and enjoyed every minute of it, laughing and grinning so much that I was certain my face resembled the Joker’s. This story is a super fun, relaxing, giggle-a-minute read.

Debby Mayne
Amanda Burns owns a bicycle shop in Treasure Island, Florida, but she almost never has time to enjoy the charming town or its beautiful beaches. When she’s not caring for her emotionally demanding sister, she’s busy waiting on customers. But there’s one customer she never minds seeing. Each year, the handsome Jerry Simpson returns to the shop to rent a bicycle for two. When Amanda discovers the story behind the tandem bicycle—that Jerry takes his aging parents to the island for their anniversary each year—she finds herself drawn to the man who selflessly gives of his time for the people he loves. Jerry’s sense of responsibility to his parents has prevented him from even thinking about love. Will he and Amanda find the treasure they both deserve—even if neither of them is looking for it?
