I would put it in the top third. It is my favorite of the Richard Castle books.
The plot kept me involved and guessing. There are multiple crimes and suspects. I did not see the twists and turns coming.
Difficult question. I love all the scenes between Nikki and rook especially when they went to Paris. They have great banter. I also liked the scenes at the precinct.
I did laugh a few times.
These books are great companions to the Castle TV series. Also, Johnny Heller does a great job of narration.
For fans of the show Castle, this a little puzzle piece that can be enjoyed on the go
Got off to a slow start on this one. Nearly didn't proceed...but, glad I did. I think I should have listened to the first book in this series rather than start with the second...then, the start would have been better.
I truly enjoyed this book and will now go back and start with the first one before proceeding to the third. The story was well written and interesting to follow. I truly did not want it to end.
It took some time to get used to the "reader". He is not what I expected. That being said, I will listen to the rest of the series and he is the "reader". Guess he wasn't that bad!
I love to read & I love to listen to books when we travel or when I need to de stress and can listen while jogging, gardening, waiting in traffic, it just all depends on how well written the book is and equally important is the reader of the book itself.
The action and suspense - knowing the basic characters from the tv sitcom helped my imagination while listening to the audio.
When Nicki realized the suitcase they had just found a murder victim in was the same suitcase she had as a child and with her initials carved in the side. The same suitcase in fact that her mother's killer had stolen many years earlier.
I was surprised that the end of the story was left open
Being a fan of the TV Castle series, I purchased this book without realizing it was book 4. Thoroughly enjoyed the story line, the characters, and the narration. I will now start at book 1 and get caught up with the characters and wait for the next one.
I very much enjoyed the reading and the story line of this boook. I have listened to all of the Richard Castle books on Audible and find them to be the right combination of mystery, excitement and passion. Each book's story line moves quickly enough that there are no dull moments.
I enjoy the character of Nikki Heat because she is a strong yet vulnerable female who is thrust into a male dominated environment. She is a believable character with flaws and values that appeals me.
Johnny Heller is an excellent narrator, he has performed all of the Richard Castle books and his voice seems the embodiment of the characters in the book. He accomplishes bringing the characters to life effortlessly. I have not had the opportunity to hear him perform a different series.
The book ended too soon. And I look forward to the next in the series because there is no way you can leave a book that open ended without follow up.
Yes, I think reading this book was time well spent. I took it with me on a long flight, and it kept me entertained. I've enjoyed all of the Nikki Heat books, but this one was more on par with the first one than the third. I probably won't reread it, but I don't think it was a total waste of time.
Too much traveling! One of the things I love about this series is that it takes place in NYC. As a New Yorker, I get a huge kick out of spotting local sights and factoids in each installment. My favorite part of the book was the sniper on the Highline--spectacular! Unfortunately, this book keeps changing location, from France to Boston and back again. not only did I feel like it broke up the story too much, but it also eliminated those fun, attention-grabbing "I Love NY" moments.
The whole opening scene with the earthquake. Classic. And that was the other problem with this book. the best scene was the opener, followed closely by the end. Everything in the middle was just meh.
Haha. Seriously? This question has to have been randomly generated. And that's another thing... I had a harder time spotting Castle/Nikki Heat crossover pointsin this book. Obviously, the whole CIA spy thing, but there weren't as many funny little TV Show-based quotable moments in this one, which was disappointing.
The best things about Frozen Heat is the same as all the previous selections: The relationship of the intriguing characters and the fascinating plot.
The twists and turns of the plot grabbed my interest and made me reluctant to turn it off, just like trying to put down a good book.
I have listened to the three previous Niki Heat books and this is on parr with the rest.
Castle and Heat Sizzle!
When is the next one coming out?
