Review: "Think Murder" by Cassidy Salem

About the Author:

Cassidy Salem has always been an avid reader. She is especially fond of mysteries (both cozy and traditional). Over the years, her favorite mystery authors have included Agatha Christie, Kathy Reichs, Mary Higgins Clark, and John Grisham. Cassidy also enjoys reading historical fiction focused on American and world history, as well as the classics. 

Cassidy has never met a dog she didn't like - a fact that influenced her decision to have the protagonist in "Think Murder" volunteer at a dog rescue center. When she's not reading, Cassidy enjoys singing in an a cappella ensemble. Most of all, Cassidy enjoys spending time with family and friends, and travels with her husband and son whenever possible. Her travels have taken her to destinations throughout the United States and Europe, as well as Scandinavia and the Middle East.

About the Book:

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.

Kim's Musings Review:

5 Stars: I enjoyed “Think Murder” immensely. The Washington, DC setting was well done, so much I felt I was actually there. I recognized many of the places mentioned from when I visited during a work conference last August.

The characters were well described. I loved them all, even the bad guys. As for Adina’s love interests, I was pulling for Jonathan but thought she might choose Bruce. Not that he wasn’t a nice guy, but I don’t know, I just liked Jonathan best. I hope there is a sequel to this story. I would love to read it or anything else written by this author. Great first book.
