When I first heard that the fictional Heat Wave starring Nikki Heat was going to become a real life book written as a tie in to the show I was incredibly excited. I love when television and literature bump heads. This book aims to expand the experience created in the TV show by showing the final product of Castle's ride-along experience. As a fan of the show I loved reading the book and seeing where the show and the novel intersect. When I imagined Castle's writing this is sort of what I had in mind. The mystery unfolds much in the same way mysteries unfold on the show and you can clearly see that the characters in the show and the characters in the book mirror each other. Part of me wishes that they had taken a more subtle approach when tying in the characters, but I didn't expect perfection and this was a fun, poppy book.

As a fan I expected to enjoy this and in the end I'm happy that I did.
