Get A Clue by Jill Shalvis
This is the first book by this author that I've read and I loved it. It's cozy, sexy, spooky, and funny. The romance part involves the heroine (fresh from being jilted) arriving at an out of the way cabin for her honeymoon stay sans groom. She finds a very real, very delectible man already occupying her room. Sparks fly. Great chemistry between the hero & heroine. Thrown into the mix is a little murder mystery. Great combo. One of the things I really liked about it was that, particularly early on, there's a lot of back and forth teasing between hero/heroine but it never devolves into the really mean-spirited and vulgar insulting that I find in a lot of romance stories that try to have the same type of exchange. Some authors just don't do banter well.
