TV Show Castle's Nikki Heat Book
Heat Wave - Richard Castle

Ladies, what would you do if I told you that the most handsome man on the whole planet will spend three glorious weeks with YOU at YOUR house? And all you have to do is make yourself a pot of jo, relax in a hammock, and of course slip on something comfy but sexy as well and the best part is you don’t have to be on a reality TV show, or sign up for an adventure cruise that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s free. It’s hot off the presses. And he is the answer to all of your dreams. Ladies, I give you the one man that can actually make my heart do the tango: Richard Castle and his new book Heat Wave.

 

Yes, I understand that Richard Castle is a fictitious character in the new hit show Castle that premiers Monday’s at 10pm on ABC, but come on! It’s Nathan Fillion. Who doesn’t like a “rugged, good-looking” man on TV these days, and Nathan Fillion is doing a superb job filling in those shoes, am I right or what?  If you have not had the pleasure of seeing the show Castle, then you will need to borrow a friends TV, borrow their cable network and watch every Monday at 10 to understand my feelings (or you can also come into the library, go on YouTube and watch the shows on there for free). If you were fortunate enough to watch Castle, bless you. Still, why the reason of telling you ALL of this when I should be writing about a book that I read?

 

That famous writer Richard Castle based his novel Heat Wave on the proud, the few, the NYPD.

 

In Heat Wave, Detective Nikki Heat and journalist Jameson Rook are in charge of investigating the over-the balcony murder of a major Manhattan real-estate developer. As suspects start to pile up, things get a little complicated as people aren’t what they seem, even the victim.

 

So, how to bottom-line this one?

 

It’s a who-dunnit, suspenseful storyline with one other overpowering twist to it – romance. The play back and forth between the two characters, Heat and Rook, is fun and unforced, often less predictable than the mystery they’re pursuing.

 

So come to your local library and follow Heat and Rook through the streets of Manhattan and figure out if the butler did it.

 

But remember, “It’s like a mystery novel, you don’t just go to the last page do you?”

Silk and Stone
Rugged Glory - Cait Logan

An oldie but goodie with a cowboy who lives up to the rugged mantle. I love a good opposites attract romance. In this book, you have a cultured, intelligent school teacher from the city and an older, former rodeo man who is rich but still lives a simple life as a cowboy. Ben is definitely my cowboy book type. He's a bit grumpy and grumbly, but I can handle that. Long, tall, and fierce. He's met his match in Sami, a tiny, proper schoolteacher, that he hires to tutor his son so he can get his GED. Sami knows that she's taking a risk agreeing to work for Ben, a man who makes her feel things she wanted to forget, and in some ways reminds her of her big, brutal father. But the more she gets to know Ben, she realizes that he's the type to cherish a woman, never harm her. I love a hero in pursuit. My favorite kind. And Sami leads him a merry chase. He's really a romantic guy in his rough way.

This has plenty of atmosphere and although it's not that descriptive, the romance is steamy. It's a blast from the past as far as descriptions of clothing. I find that a bit amusing, even though I definitely don't miss the 80s fashions. I'm glad I listened to the urge to read this. It was a good little romance.

Wyoming Rugged
Wyoming Rugged - Diana Palmer I tried so hard to like this story. Am normally a fan of Ms. Palmer's works but this one I just could not get into. The story dragged on, the characters whined and I just did not find the plot very interesting. Huge disappointment. I received an ARC of Wyoming Rugged in exchange for an honest review. Even a favorite author can write a dud sometimes.
