Any insight appreciated.
As BetterRed stated qualified searches such as this one authors:"=Ilona Andrews"
should go quickly.
You could limit your general searches by going to Preferences - Searching
and editing the "Columns that non-prefixed searches are limited to
" box. I limit my searches to title, authors, tags, series, and publisher. By removing comments you can drastically increase the speed of your non-prefixed searches.
