Some yes. Depends on what it is. For example,. Mercy Thompson would fall under it because it's still set in the real world. However some urban fantasy where the entire plot and setting is just made up of magical beings on a foreign planet or something else like that would not be counted as magical realism.

I think we said they would have to have no formal sleuthing experience which would include someone who is a private investigator. So I can't count Kinsey Milhone cause she's a private investigator. It have to be a cozy type story or Miss Maple, Poirot, Sherlock Holmes. Don't read that terrible series I read called Beautiful Blue Death. He's an amateur sleuth but awful book.
I think I previously said anyone who isn't law enforcement would be amateur - examples were Poirot (who was a Belgian police officer prior to retirement) and Holmes would be amateur - in fact, I used a Holmes for my square. So PI could count as an amateur sleuth.
