  1. What are your thoughts on Melanie Dickerson? I usually dislike romance as a main plot unless it’s really well done (like Jane Austen’s Emma, etc.). I just read my first Melanie Dickerson and really disliked it. ;P Do you know any good-quality Christian romance novels? My mom loves Tamera Alexander books, and I’m thinking about birthday gifts. 😉
