I was going over the notes I made for my characters in my Colonial mystery series when I discovered a romance subplot blossoming between Amos and the daughter of an Irish farmer (who's parents immigrated to the colonies). I imagined the two walking across the pasture talking, Amos doing a little farm work here and there (maybe doing something to impress the girl), etc. But isn't it a cliche to have a romance take place in a barn/ranch? While granted the people in question are a French tavern boy named Amos and the daugher of a farmer but still... I guess it's because I haven't been exposed to romance at all that makes this a bit iffy. Plus, the idea of Amos and the girl makng out inside a barn makes my stomach turn. It seems to cliched, like bad romance in the making. Thoughts?
