I like Peter Robinson, he does do police procedurals but with such a depth of characterisation that the crime story can seem almost incidental.
I like romances, in the true sense of the word, which does not mean soppy and sentimental. There doesn't have to be a lot happening, but there does have to be a story and characters that I care about.
I also am interested in war stories, but the same applies, I want a good story and characters, who do not have to be killed off in grisly and inventive ways.
These would change hour to hour, day to day, season to season, etc.
