Richard Castle’s book — Heat Wave

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 4:21 am

It’s been a miserable couple of weeks around here, but things are finally looking up.

This wknd I was in the mood for something light and fun, so I read Heat Wave by “Richard Castle”. (The entire book is part of a clever marketing scheme — Richard Castle, a wildly successful author, is a fictional character played by Nathan Fillion on the ABC show CASTLE. This book is supposedly the book Richard Castle has written about the detective he shadows on the show. It’s really not as confusing as I’m making it sound…)

Whoever actually wrote the book did an excellent job of capturing the easy, breezy tone of the show. I could believe that it reads like something Richard Castle could have written.

Is it a great book? Not exactly, but it did keep me mildly entertained for a couple of hours (and yes, I chuckled aloud a couple of times).

It was just what the doctor ordered.

And I’d definitely read the next Richard Castle book (assuming there’ll be one) the next time I’m emotionally exhausted.



  1. Santa is bringing my copy. I can hardly wait!

  2. Would that be the Santa who pops up before Halloween or the one who makes an appearance at the end of December?

    Just be warned: the book is cute…not good, but cute.
