September 4th Waiting on Wednesday

Welcome to this week's Waiting on Wednesday.  And please tell me I'm not the only one who is out of whack thanks to this being a short week after a long weekend.  Those always throw me off.  But believe me, I'll take it.

Anyway, the book I'm talking about this week is Deadly Heat.  And it's a very different TV Tie-In.  If you aren't familiar with the TV show Castle, it revolves around a fictional writer, Richard Castle, who is following a police detective, Kate Beckett, around to get inspiration for the new mystery series he is writing.  He has based his new character, Nikki Heat, on Beckett.

Somewhere along the way, someone decided the books should really come out.  Deadly Heat is the fifth book in the series, which is no surprise since we just finished season 5 of the show.  These books are always a blast since they use bits and pieces from the various episodes of the season as little inside jokes for the fans.  I'm sure there are jokes I miss, but I love the ones I get.  The characters are also obviously based on the main characters on the show.  For example, Castle has written himself in the books as a writer named Rook.

I'll also be curious to read this one since the last book actually foreshadowed something that happened in season five.  I will be looking for any hints like that about season six.

Deadly Heat goes on sale on September 17th, and I've got my copy pre-ordered.  Watch for the review soon after that.

And, really, if you enjoy lighthearted mysteries, be sure to check out Castle.  Here's my review of Season 1.


  1. I absolutely love Castle, so you can bet I've got this one on my wishlist. Great pick :)

    Here's my WOW pick.

    Wit and Sin

    1. My only complaint is that they don't use the books on the show like they did in season two. That was so much fun.

  2. Okay your explanation of the book completely confused me so I'll have to check the books out on Goodreads but if the books are anything like the show, than I'm pretty sure I'd love them too. Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading it.
    Come check out my WOW post.

    1. I think it takes reading one to fully grasp what they do with the books.

      The writing isn't the best in them, but they sure are fun.

  3. This is not my normal type of book but it looks great, enjoy.
