Naked Heat: 12/30/11
Naked Heat by Richard Castle is the second in the Nikki Heat series inspired by the television mystery Castle. This time a gossip columnist has been murdered in her home and the search for her killer leads to more deaths and false leads.
When I read it at the end of last year I liked it. The Castle books are pretty easy to read. If I were one to call any sort of reading a guilty pleasure, I'd put the Castle books in that category.
Now though that I'm looking back on the book, it hasn't stuck with me as well as the first one has. What has remained is my appreciation of the tougher mystery but the desire for a longer book with better fleshed out characters. Also the sex scenes either need to go or be better written.
