Mar 16: "Frozen Heat" by Richard Castle (except, not really--and if you're a fan of the show, you should check out his site). This is the fourth book in the Nikki Heat series, supposedly written by the character on the television series "Castle." Blurb (from Goodreads): Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook are together again, facing an unsolved murder mystery that has haunted Nikki for ten years. NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat arrives at her latest crime scene to find an unidentified woman stabbed to death and stuffed inside a suitcase left on a Manhattan street. Nikki is in for a big shock when this new homicide connects to the unsolved murder of her own mother. Paired once again with her romantic and investigative partner, top journalist Jameson Rook, Heat works to solve the mystery of the body in the suitcase while she is forced to confront unexplored areas of her mother's background. Facing relentless danger as someone targets her for the next kill, Nikki's search will unearth painful family truths, expose a startling hidden life, and cause Nikki to reexamine her own past. Heat's passionate quest takes her and Rook from the back alleys of
to the avenues of ,
trying to catch a ruthless killer. The question is, now that her mother's cold
case has unexpectedly thawed, will Nikki Heat finally be able to solve the dark
mystery that has been her demon for ten years? These
books are getting better as the series goes along, and I get a kick out of the
references in them (this one has Detectives Malcolm and Reynolds, and you'd get
that if you were/are a "Firefly" fan). I love the banter between Heat
and Rook and laughed out loud numerous times. I still don't know who the actual
author(s) is(are), but it's not like I'd go run out to read their other work.
This series is fun because of the TV tie-in. Don't know how much you would like
the book without that. I gave this book 4 stars on Goodreads. Paris
