The US links for the M C Beaton short stories were showing $0.00 when I added them - not sure what has happened since!

I just found these. I haven't tried J.R. Rain, but I can Maggie Shayne writes wonderful, wonderful romantic suspense.
J.R. Rain Elvis Has Not Left the Building
It's tough being the King.
Which is why in 1977 Elvis faked his own death and endured massive facial reconstruction surgery, and disappeared from the limelight to live a normal life as the unassuming Aaron King. Unfortunately, leaving fame behind also meant leaving his fortune behind, too, and now Elvis finds himself broke and living in near poverty in a small apartment in Los Angeles. Luckily for him, it turns out he's a pretty good private investigator.
Now in his seventies and contemplating a return to music (discreetly, of course), Elvis is hired to solve a baffling missing person case. The King digs deeper, and soon finds himself surrounded by the seedier elements of Los Angeles, from nefarious Hollywood producers who prey upon the young, to twin brothers with a very dark secret.
And as Elvis pieces the bizarre puzzle together, he slowly makes his singing comeback—and will be reunited on stage with someone even the King himself never dreamed possible.
J.R. Rain Knighthorse Books One and Two
Two bestselling Kindle novels together in one omnibus:
When high school student Derrick Booker, the only black student at a posh Orange County high school, is accused of killing his white girlfriend, ex-college football hero and detective Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper into the murder. It doesn't take long for Knighthorse to realize that not all is as it seems at tranquil Huntington High, from a band director who preys on the innocent to a vice-principal with a secret agenda of her own. Not to mention someone's hired a professional killer to keep Knighthorse permanently off the case. As the investigation continues, Knighthorse's personal life is shattered by the discovery of new evidence relating to his mother's unsolved murder, a murder dating back twenty years. Reeling from the discovery, a determined Jim Knighthorse sets out to bring two killers to justice.
THE MUMMY CASE
Private investigator Jim Knighthorse takes on a very, very cold case. When historian Willie Clarke dies of mysteriously of dehydration in the California deserts, ex-football hero Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper—and discovers a shocking connection to one of the West's oldest mysteries. Over a hundred years ago, an unnamed cowboy was murdered in the California desert and, due to freak weather conditions, would become mummified within twenty-four hours. Now known to the world as Sylvester the Mummy and displayed in a creepy curiosity shop, Sylvester and historian Willie Clarke will be forever linked in mystery. That is, unless private investigator Jim Knighthorse can survive long enough to untangle one of the West's greatest unsolved murders.
J.R. Rain The Mummy Case this is included in the book above this, but it's also available individually and free.
Written in the tradition of Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe, the Jim Knighthorse series introduces a new hard-hitting, wise-cracking hero with a modern twist.
Now in THE MUMMY CASE, private investigator Jim Knighthorse takes on a very, very cold case. When historian Willie Clarke dies of mysteriously of dehydration in the California deserts, ex-football hero Jim Knighthorse is hired to dig a little deeper—and discovers a shocking connection to one of the West's oldest mysteries.

Maggie Shayne The Gingerbread Man
Since the day her baby sister was taken, Holly’s mind hasn’t been the same. PTSD, panic attacks, nightmares and blocked memories have plagued her ever since. And now they’ve returned.
Hard-edged Detective Vince O’Malley’s most recent case penetrated even his protective shell. Ordered to take time off to recover, he can’t let go, and on his own, follows the clues to Holly’s small upstate NY town.
His presence stirs ghosts from the past, shadows of a little girl lost, the suspicions of some tight-lipped locals with secrets to hide, and more than that inside Holly’s fragile mind and untouched heart.

Here's a cozy freebie that's New to me.
Golden Eggs and Other Deadly Things by Nancy Tesler
Extortion, kidnapping, conspiracy, and murder---not crimes suburban mom, biofeedback therapist, Carrie Carlin who teaches stress-reduction, should expect to run into every day. But Carrie isn't your usual suburban mom. Over the past few years stumbling on dead bodies has become depressingly routine for her. Still, when her much adored father wins the Massachusetts lottery and his smiling face and that of his new wife, Eve, grace the front page of the Boston Globe, Carrie anticipates only good things happening.
Then Eve shows up on Carrie's Norwood, New Jersey doorstep with a chunk of Carrie's dad's winnings concealed in a money belt, payoff loot for an extortionist. She begs Carrie to help her deliver the money. Outraged, Carrie adamantly refuses. The last thing she needs is to be dragged into a potentially dangerous shady deal, particularly when Eve won't tell her what the deal is. She has a busy life, she explains--a client roster that includes ADD and ADHD kids, overeater groups, even a multiple personality, plus an ex-husband who compares her to Calamity Jane, two children, four animals and a boyfriend who's a homicide cop.
Angry and desperate, Eve appropriates Carrie's car and disappears, leading Carrie on a wild goose chase all over Manhattan. When the extortionist ends up with a bullet in his brain and his head in a bowl of soup, and Carrie discovers Eve trying to climb out a brownstone window, Carrie ends up in the proverbial soup right along with stepmom. Then Eve is arrested, a stepbrother Carrie didn't know existed shows up, and strangers connected to Eve's past begin getting murdered. When her dad arrives determined to save his lady, Carrie's fight-or-flight response goes into orbit. Finding the killer becomes an all-consuming priority as she fights to preserve her family. Her chance comes when the killer makes a disastrous mistake....
