I thought of one more, Janet, in a favorite series of mine.

Clive Cussler's Sam and Remi Fargo should be on the list, even though the series is more in the adventure/thriller category than standard mystery. They do both solve mysteries.

And back in the category of island mysteries, Viveca Sten, in her Sandham Murders series, has a couple that may or may not belong here. Thomas Andreasson and Nora Linde are the two lead characters and childhood sweethearts who show occasional signs of being in love while in other difficult relationships.
