Anyone recognize this book series? Probably late 80’s-early 90’s

I used to read a female detective series who I think was a cop, then due to some kind of trauma quit and became a PI (I think) with a long standing romance with maybe her partner that got settled some books in. She worked in NY and ended up with buying a large apartment in the meat packing area that came with a huge tub.....that might have been pink inside.

Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone books? The alphabet ones? Starts with A is for Alibi - she's not in NY, but in a fictionalized California town, and I can't remember the tub, but she does rent a really big loft type place from someone she works with.

(touchstones seem to be down)

Could it be one of the V.I. Warshawski books by Sara Paretsky? They are set in Chicago, I think and I believe she used to be a lawyer rather than a cop (sorry, it's been a long time), but may be what you are looking for?
