11. Dear to Me (2008)
Author: Wanda E. Brunstetter
Publisher: Barbour Publishing
Promotional synopsis: "Melinda believes that all animals should be protected. Melinda's boyfriend, Gabe, enjoys hunting, causing conflict between her and Gabe."
All great romances put substantial obstacles in the way of star-crossed lovers, whether it be warring families, vast socio-economic chasms, or...hunting? OK, so we didn't find this plot point too compelling, but that hasn't stopped Amish Romance from becoming a thing. We aren't sure how to feel about this trend, but we are pretty sure that the Amish would tell us "I do believe it isn't any of your concern, English," and get back to building dope furniture.
