This is the first crime novel I have read and believe me it will not be the last (well at least of this series).
It kept me on edge with it's fun, flirty and interesting story.
From the start of the book there are a number of suspects and I had my suspition on who the killer was but it turned out I was wrong which was great because it meant that the book wasnt predictable. Guessing the killer is something I do in the TV show and 98% of the time I'm wrong.
In Heat Wave you can feel the 'Heat' between Rook and Heat just like you can between Beckett and Castle in the show, I was happy that they actually get it on in the book where as in the TV series four season in and were all still waiting for it.
In the steamy scene during the book there are unforced scene's between the two characters.
Heat Wave is a fun read for fans of 'Castle' and is definatly a worth-while pick-up for fans of the mystery genre.
At the end of the book the readers will be left asking when and where can I get book two.
