Shhhhhhhh... don't tell anyone, but this hardboiled crime/thriller fan has an occasional taste for a cute, relaxing "cozy" mystery. Funny thing is, one of my favorite hardboiled writers, Max Allan Collins, in conjunction with his wife Barbara, writes a "cozy" series set in the world of small-town antiques dealers (guess he needs a break from his "Quarry" hit man series). Written under the name of "Barbara Allan", the first entry in the "Trash & Treasures" mystery series is "Antiques Roadkill". Cute young heroine (returning to her small hometown after a messy divorce) and her often-addled but still wise and perky mother are the main protagonists. There are three or four books in the series and all are available on Kindle for about $5.00 each. The first one is a lot a fun so far and I'm sure I'll check out the rest... ahem, alternating the entries in the series with more manly fare, of course.
