Janet Evanovich's series has received a lot of attention in the past few years and if you're wanting a light but interesting thriller, check out her series about an out-of-work 30-something female who turns to her cousin for a job as a Bounty Hunter! I enjoyed the first in the series, "One for the Money". Bold, well-paced, and a little bit of everything! Humour, mystery, crime, thriller, romance....these books have it all. I've already started the second in this series and plan on working my way through all. Not quite Chic-lit...not quite thriller, but something in between and definitely worth the time.
