Ok, I freely admit, the Nikki Heat books are not high art. But they’re really fun to read, and they’re getting better the further into the series they get.
This book delves into the mystery of Nikki’s mother’s murder. Granted, that’s supposed to be modeled on Beckett’s mother’s murder on the show, but they take it in a completely different direction in the book, and I didn’t figure out who the murderer was ahead of time. That’s the mark of a good mystery to me.
It’s also totally great if you watch Castle. And let’s face it – if you don’t watch Castle, I would totally forgive you for never picking up this book.
