Does Anyone read Romantic Mystery?

I've written a VERY unique romantic mystery called PEARLS OF ASIA. It's a romantic mystery set in San Francisco which features a special gender twist. Think "Law and Order" meets "The Crying Game" meets "Sex and The City."  Women love this book, but would they look for it under "mystery" or "romance" Romantic mystery seems to be such a grey area. Just asking.

Hi, Lee! I think that the subgenre that best fits the description of your book is romantic suspense. For example, one of the more famous romantic suspense authors, J.D. Robb (an alias for Nora Roberts), writes the In Death books, which is a police procedural with strong romantic elements about a female detective solving crime. 

I hope this helps!
