Book Review: Heat Wave by Richard Castle

Heat Wave by Richard Castle
213 pages, ebook
Published September 2009, Hyperion

Do you all love Castle as much as I do? It is one of my favorite shows and I find it pretty ingenious that the writers have actually written and published the books that are mentioned on the show. I purchased the first book, Heat Wave, awhile ago but just hadn't found the time to read it until now.

First, I should say that you shouldn't expect great literature here. This is just a fun read. Silly, Castle fun. It's hard not to picture Beckett and Castle in the characters of Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook while following them as they investigate the apparent suicide of "a real estate mogul". 

Turns out that Matthew Starr did not jump but was thrown off the balcony. Detective Heat, along with Detectives Raley and Ochoa and the journalist tag-along, Jameson Rook do what they do to solve the murder and catch the bad guy (or gal). 

The murder mystery is okay, not too hard to figure out, but the Castle like feel is here in the banter between Heat and Rook, the relationship escalates a little faster in the book than in the series, but of course, Castle wrote it. He is living his fantasy, right?

If you enjoy Castle you will enjoy this book.
