And should Ruthie fall for a man who is not even Mennonite?

Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction - Viki Ferrell
Debby Mayne has given us three sweet love stories in SARASOTA DREAMS. All three stories speak of change and proving yourself before others. Ms. Mayne did a great job of researching the Mennonite faith, community and culture. We could all learn a few lessons from them about the really important things in life.
Random Book Muses - Angela Tollis

I like Amish/Mennonite fiction, and Debby Mayne writes it well. I appreciated that we could see what the men AND women were thinking.

Besides the romances being very well written, Mayne illustrated her knowledge of the Mennonite lifestyle without making the novellas feel like documentaries. The reader gets more than a glimpse of small business management (diner and souvenir shop), farming, and church life.

These were three lovely, realistic, fun, clean romances. The loyalty to family and community was comforting, and the food sounded delicious. Bring on some coconut cream pie!

Jael Roy's Blog - Jael Roy
Debbie Mayne did an excellent job portraying her characters and the challenges they face daily, spiritually, and of course, romantically.
