I've read several really cute Avon romances. One by an English author, Sophie Kinsella www.sophiekinsella.co.uk . I love the British slang. Matter of fact, I've been gobsmacked.
For some reason they all think that they have to have one torrid sex scene. I just skip a couple of paragraphs or pages and get on with the story. Speaking of torrid sex scenes. I've started back quilting and listening to audio books. Sandra Brown's Best Kept Secrets is a very good book.
Except for the torrid sex scenes. As a rule, I can only remember her writing one scene per book, but (as mentioned above) I skip them so may have skipped more than one. In Best Kept Secrets, I think that there were three. Since I was listening, I couldn't flip past the stuff. I had no idea how funny they were! One in particular I laughed out loud. The necessary body parts are called by nicknames. Husband and I discussed it and nearly had each other laughing so hard we almost fell out of our chairs.
So...other than the 'sex' scenes, this book will keep you interested in figuring out who-done-it.
