Bad karma, a rival suitor, and a deadly attack are enough to put a damper on any date.
Just when Adina’s social life is looking up, her night out is interrupted by the scream of police sirens. Afraid her bartender boyfriend might be accused of murder, Adina’s neighbor enlists her assistance, and in the process exposes her to the seamier side of illegal immigration and crime in the city. Hard as she tries to limit her involvement, the more Adina learns, the more she needs to know – until a case of mistaken identity lands her in hot water. Will she uncover the truth before it’s too late?
Dying for Data by Cassidy Salem is the second installment in the Adina Donati, Accidental Sleuth cozy mystery series. The series is set in Washington DC and features think tank employee Adina Donati. Adina has a knack for getting wrapped up in mysteries.
I read the first book, Think Murder earlier this month, and I was excited to continue reading this series. We find out that some things have happened since Think Murder ended. Adina has had a few dates with both of the interested guys in her life. In fact, she is on a date with Bruce when the police show up and begin questioning restaurant patrons about a violent crime. However, things get a bit awkward when Jonathan shows up as the detective on the case. He is the other man Adina has dated.
Adina finds herself connected to the crime through her neighbor, Elena. Elena’s boyfriend, Rafael, is a victim of an attack. Of course, things are much more complicated than that. Adina’s curiosity and desire to help her friend lead her to sleuthing once again.
Dying for Data is a fast-paced follow-up to Think Murder. I liked this one even more than I did the first book. The characters are further developed and the mystery unfolds at just the right pace. You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this one, but I feel it enhances your enjoyment.
The Bottom Line
Dying for Data by Cassidy Salem is recommended for anyone who enjoys a fast-paced cozy with easy-to-like characters in a fun setting. This is a quality cozy that does not disappoint. I am really looking forward to more from Cassidy Salem.
