Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Has anybody read Mary Stewart's "Airs Above Ground" -- and if so, would that qualify for this square, do you think? I know the MC and "her man" are married and the relationship element is about them back together after a major dispute (so it's not about two people falling in love for the first time), but it does seem to meet the requirement of combining a romance / relationship theme with a mystery.
Mary's Books
I read this in college. Loved the story. I wanted to know more about the horses.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Yes, the horses are the main pull for me, too! I used to have books, photo collections and albums about them as a kid ... My high point was actually seeing them in performance during a high school trip to Vienna, the year before graduation. Absolutely to die for!

So do you think this book would qualify as Romantic Suspense?
Ani's Book Abyss
I would say that if it has an element of romance and suspense or mystery, it would count. I've read many romantic suspense where the main couple are rediscovering their love after a dispute or separation, or working on their relationship because of a dispute, not necessarily falling in love for the first time--those sweet "second chance romance" stories.
Mary's Books
I agree with Ani. It would fit under the Romantic Suspense.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Cool, thank you! Hereby officially suggested for the list ...
Murder by Death
Added! Thank you to all of you for sorting that one out. :)

Btw (just because your life clearly isn't busy enough at the moment :~ ), since this list started out as "Romantic Suspense" last year, shouldn't the first books -- the books that the list was created with last year -- now all be marked "Romantic Suspense," too? [TA ducks.]

I've created all of the missing ones, so you should now be able to add all of these via ISBN, too (looks like some didn't make it onto the list after all). A big thank you for the slave labor you're putting into these lists, though!
