Maryfox | 396 comments Looking for recommendations for authors who are somewhere between the cozy and the violence / explicit sex ends of the spectrum. I've exhausted Margaret Maron, Charlaine Harris, Laurien Berenson, Sally Spemcer. etc.

Appreciate all suggestions.

Laura Lippman and Tana French are also favorites. I'll add more as I think of them.

Laura Lippman has some excellent stand-alones, but I also love her Tess Monaghan series.
