Thank you for the pick.
There are three remaining novels in the series, so far, plus one short story. Reading these two will take me down to one novel plus one short story in one of the anthologies Killer Beach Reads, released by Gemma Halliday's publishing company. I really like this series. The MC does not have a cop boyfriend and she is not in a romantic triangle.

Nothing wrong with a little romance. The cop boyfriend is overused. There are series that have that trope I like...The Tourist Trap series by Lynn Cahoon, The High Heels series by Gemma Halliday and the Merry Wrath series by Leslie Langtry come to mind.
