I happen to like SF/Fantasy books but my wife recently changed from reading romance novels to books by James Patterson and Robert Crais.
I am the shopper so even if she didnt have anything to read she wouldnt go looking for more books, she waits till I find something or someone dumps a bag of books at the house.
That being said if she like Patterson and Crais what othe writers should I be looking at for her? I was thinking the Jesse Stone series might be good?
You might have her try the following:
JA Konrath's Jack Daniels series - Jack is a female Chicago cop with a gun, a Prada and big chip on her shoulders. It is humor and murder combined.
John Lescroart's Dismas Hardy - Dismas is a cop, turned lawyer, turned bartender, turned lawyer for the prosecution, turned lawyer for the defense. He is a man in transition, an awesome series, but start with the 3rd book in the series. The first two weren't that good.
Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series - Walt is a Sheriff in Wyoming that has a fun cast of characters to keep him in line. I have only read the first book in the series, reading the 2nd this week. But that one book was very, very good.

A few others that come to mind--
Michael Connelly's Harry Bosh series
Harlan Coben--His Myron Bolitar series is great, but I actually like his stand alone books even better.
And another one of my favorites--Jeffrey Deaver's Lincoln Rhyme series--lots of unexpected twist and turns.
I agree with Keri about the John Lescroart Dismas Hardy series--John Lescroart is one of my favorite authors.

I second the Michael Connelly & Jeffrey Deaver suggestions. She might like these
John Sandford- Prey series
Jonathan Kellerman- Alex Dealware series
Faye Kellerman-Peter Decker Series
James Lee Burke- Dave Robicheaux- Series
