Deadly Heat -- Richard Castle Book 5 of Nikki Heat series It's not that I didn't like it, per se; however, it's not like I really liked it or anything. To be honest, these past two Nikki Heat novels felt like they were trying way too hard to convince me that they are written by the infamous "New...
It took my forever to finish the book, but that doesn't mean it's the book's fault. It's all mine.

Tres Estrellas! Lo bueno del libro es que al fin uno sabe qué diantres pasó con la mamá de Nikki, pero no me mató mucho el libro. No había ese humor característico del resto de la saga y la verdad es que me dejó varias cosas sin explicar. No lo encontré malo, pero el anterior era muchísimo mejor.
This is better than the Derrick Storm books which I was also reading at the time - I wonder if it is actually the same writer here?In any case this one was OK. but no as good as Frozen Heat or Heat Rises. I think this series is starting to lose it's mojo a bit.
Most likely the final installment in the "Nikki Heat" series, this brought a fair amount of closure to the story arc involving the death of Nikki's mother.Not the best of the series, but still a satisfying conclusion to the story.
