Naked Heat by Richard Castle

This is another in the series of books that spun off from the TV series Castle.

As a fan of the show I enjoy reading the books, especially now the series has ended. They are easy to read which is nice sometimes when you want a quick read.

This is the story of the investigation into the death of a high-profile celebrity gossip columnist which leads the team to investigate another celebrity death.

The story takes a bit of a turn when they start investigating the pop star girlfriend of the male actor who died previously and how she was connected to the death of the celebrity columnist. Don’t they say that everyone knows everyone when you’re famous!

One key thing Detective Heat is passionate about is working the timeline to find answers and that is something I think most writers can relate to. It often yields results.

I don’t think you need to be a fan of the TV show to enjoy the books but they are probably a little light for fans of heavy crime novels. Not bad for a quick holiday read on the beach though.

Deadly Heat by Richard Castle

Deadly Heat is another in the series of books by the TV character Richard Castle of Castle fame. Having watched the TV series I find reading the books like going over old episodes of the show. Which is nice as I think they have stopped making new episodes now.

Whilst I’m sure there are better crime fiction stories on the market I find the Detective Heat series of books fun and quick to read. There are a few twists and turns and I don’t think you need to have seen the TV show in order to read the book.

This particular book centres around the death of Detective Heat’s mother and her search for the people behind it. There are twists and turns along the way but will she find the culprit and bring them to justice in the end? You’ll have to read the book for yourself to find out.

Heat Wave

I’m a fan of the TV show Castle so when I saw a box set of 3 of the Nikki Heat books from the show I had to see what it was all about. I’m sure I read somewhere that the books were written by Nathan Fillian who plays Richard Castle in the show but it seems there is a lot of speculation over the author. I like to think he wrote the books anyway.

I think it was an interesting move by the shows makers to bring out the books that are referred to throughout the shows. It’s obviously a money spinner but it also adds another element to it.

I enjoyed the book. As I was reading it I was seeing the actors in the show playing the characters they are based on and that is kind of the point. It was a quick read but sometimes you want something quite short to fill time.

I think you would still be able to enjoy the book if you have never seen the show as it isn’t really about that. What you need to know is all covered. If you are used to reading die-hard crime fiction then this is probably not going to appeal to you but if you prefer your crime a little more light-hearted then go for it!

I have another 2 books in the series to read so I’ll look forward to seeing if they’re just as good as this one!

I think they have finished making Castle now which means another one of my favourite shows has bitten the dust but at least the reruns are on most of the time!
