Think Murder: A Review

Think Murder is Cassidy Salem's first fiction novel. Cassidy is a fellow member of Rave Reviews Book Club.

  Discovering the body of a friend and colleague was not what Adina Donati had in mind when she moved to Washington D.C. in search of excitement. An administrative assistant at a prestigious think tank, Adina is drawn into the middle of the murder investigation. The police don’t seem to be making much progress until Adina stumbles onto important clues and discovers just how dangerous life in the nation’s capitol can be.

My Review: (4 stars)  Think Murder is a quick, easy read that centers around the murder of a young woman in Washington D.C. I found the story interesting, something that could happen in real life. Adina, the main character, is put at the center of the investigation when she finds her friend's body in the bathroom of a pub. When someone begins threatening her, the tension rises and it's a race against time to find out who is guilty before Adina becomes a victim herself.

I was pleased by the straight forward, easy flow of writing. There was a great cast of supporting characters, office drama to go along with the nail biting murder investigation, and a touch of romance. If you like a good mystery, you should enjoy Think Murder.

  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. You can follow her on twitter.
