Adina Donati came to Washington D.C. to find excitement, not a dead body.
When a friend is murdered, Adina is drawn into the middle of the police investigation. Tensions rise as the suspect list expands to include Adina, her friends, and colleagues at the prestigious think tank where she works.
But every cloud has a silver lining. Between the nice detective, the hot new volunteer at the dog rescue center, and the newly available preppy ex-boyfriend, Adina's dating dry spell appears near its end.
That is, if she doesn't become the next victim.
My Book Review
Think Murder by Cassidy Salem is the first book in the Adina Donati, Accidental Sleuth mystery series. I received this book for review since I am reviewing the second book for a blog tour. I thought the plot sounded good and I was looking forward to a Washington DC set mystery.
Adina finds herself wrapped up in the murder of a coworker. At first, no one can figure out why the victim was killed or who would want to do that to her. As the plot unfolds, it seems there is more than meets the eye in this case. Adina is right in the thick of things and is in danger herself.
I like the characters and the setting of Think Murder by Cassidy Salem. There are some things that I did not think would really happen (like some of the private case information Adina was privy to). Overall, this is a good story and I enjoyed my time reading it. Enough so that I am really glad I had the next book in the series to read.
The author does a nice job of unraveling the mystery throughout the story. Also, I like the possibility of a romantic relationship that was apparent in the book. There are two guys for Adina to get to know better, and I am looking forward to seeing this play out. The setting of Washington DC really helps the book come to life. It was nice that Adina volunteers at Cutie Pie, helping to take care of dogs. This provides another fun element to the story and paints Adina as a kind, caring person.
The Bottom Line
Think Murder by Cassidy Salem is the perfect book to cozy up with this fall. You’ll find yourself quickly flipping pages. Because Adina is a strong main character, she is easy to like. This was a quick read and I would recommend it. I am glad I had the chance to review it.
