Are Mysteries the New Paranormal? And What About That Steampunk?

3/4/09

So, it seems to me that there are a lot of mysteries with romantic elements popping up all over the book shelves. Or at least, mysteries written by romance authors. Most notably, Annette Blair has the Vintage Mystery series that just started coming out.

Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon? Are romantic mysteries the next big thing? Did they evolve out of romantic suspense, or is something else up? Did I blink and miss an important market trend?

On a different note, will steampunk romance sell to a mainstream audience? I know I'm looking forward to more of it, but at the same time, my mind revolts. Mainstream steampunk just seems so...unpunk rock.
