Fun read. I'll admit that the characters in my brain looked alot like the characters on the tv show, but even that was okay. ( )

‘Richard Castle’s' Heat Wave was a fun read, a little silly since Castle is himself a fictional TV character. But it was odd how I could hear Castle’s (the darling Nathan Fillion) voice in my head as I read this book. Because it is really quite true to the TV series, just that it takes a lot longer to get through. Entertaining enough but I don’t think I will be continuing with this series. ( )

Pretty good, and funny in its own way. I love 'Castle' the tv show, and I thought it was ingenious to actually publish the books he "writes" while on the show. Reading through this was like watching an episode with a couple of unexpected twists at the end. I figured out the who pretty early on, but in usual fashion, there was more to it than I could see. If you like the show, you'll like this too. ( )

This book was kind of like Castle light. Nikki comes of as kind of one demensional especially compared to her television counterpart. Rook was not as clever or interesting as Castle. Basically this is a book for when you have a stretch of time where there is no Castle on television. The romance between the two felt false but maybe that's because I've seen the television show and it just doesn't ring true.

The narrator for this book was also a huge turn off. His voice just didn't feel right and he was really awful at doing female characters. They all came across as gay men.
