N1na: It's not a procedural type murder mystery, but I really enjoyed Still Lives by Maria Hummel. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 08:39:44 -0500)

cbl_tn: She might enjoy the Body Farm series by Jefferson Bass, starting with Carved in Bone. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 20:02:36 -0500)

TenelKa: Dear Melissa,

I hope you will have a good time with the books I chose for you.

Flavia de Luce and Miss Marple are just great series which I enjoyed a lot, and in case you don't like the setting, the murder mysteries are still really good.

The Invisible Library is quite all over the place with fantasy and magic and everything, so it's just one of my favourites, I read it in two days flat.

And the Frank Sch├Ątzing one was recommended by a friend, he's a really popular writer over here and I hope you can enjoy the book. It's probably a bit darker than the others.

I also wanted to tell you about The Three Investigators. Although they are originally kids or teen books, I still enjoy them today, and they might also be great for your kids.

Anyways, I hope you have some fun reading the books and I hope I didn't completely misjudged your tastes. Going through your library I saw many familiar things, so I just hope this will be fine.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!!

lorannen: Removed The Thirteen Problems (9780008196523) due to availability. Replaced with Carved in Bone (9780062277350), suggested by cbl_tn.

Done. (Tue, 11 Dec 2018 23:52:28 -0500)
