Naked Heat - Richard Castle Title: Naked Heat Author: Richard Castle Publisher: New York : Hyperion, 2010. ISBN: 9781401324025 Copyright: 2010 Pages: 290 Quick Review: 3 stars (out of 5) Why I Read It: I love the TV series, so I thought I’d give the books a try. Where I Obtained the Book: Got it at my local library. Synopsis: In the thrilling sequel to the "New York Times" bestseller "Heat Wave," Richard Castle--from the hit ABC show "Castle"--continues the story of NYPD homicide detective Nikki Heat. Readers will once again follow Nikki and hotshot reporter Jameson Rook as they trade barbs and innuendos, all while on the trail of a murderer. Review: Reading this is like watching one of the episodes, a very long episode. It was funny and cute, mixed with murder and deceit. Nikki and Jameson have great chemistry, much like Castle and Beckett . The book ties in with what Castle does on the show. Roach is the best. Nothing was naked in this book, it was just a clever title. I hope the writers are having fun with the TV series and the books. I would love to watch more seasons and read more books.
