Are the books based on the show? Or is it the other way around?

Always happy to have a new series to like and a cop series at that. Nikki Heat isn't Eve Dallas but I am liking this girl.
The books are written by Rick Castle and his research for the books is his time spent with the detective Kate Beckett. Technically the books are based on the show but loosely.

Yeah, the books are very very loosely based on the show. It's almost as if Rick Castle is a real person writing these books. If you've never watched the show, you can read the books & not get confused. If you watch the show, you can catch the little bits that are part of the show. For instance, Kate had a boyfriend named Demming & Rick didn't like him--so he became Schlemming, a cop they made fun of.

Castle Every morning I bring you a cup of coffee, just so I can see a smile on your face. Because I think you are the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating, person I've ever met. And I love you Kate

Castle: Everything Iíve ever done, every choice Iíve ever made, every terrible or wonderful thing thatís ever happened to me, itís all led me to right here, this moment with you.

Beckett: I need you to know that our partnership, our relationship, is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You're an amazing man and I love you with all of my heart. Always.

Beckett: I found the tape. I found it. It's over. Senator Bracken, you are under arrest for conspiracy, fraud and the murder of my mother, Johanna Beckett.

Castle: She's proud of you. Wherever she is, she's proud.

Have you read Heat Rises? (the 3rd one) Interesting take--I could almost imagine Rick writing that, especially the ending.

And I just saw the title of the first episode of Season 5- "After the Storm". No link yet, just something I read on Facebook. When I get an official link, I'll share it. And I believe the first episode will air on Sept. 24th.

I'll have to try the books again. I bought the first one for my Nook and couldn't get through the poor writing style.

I have found that they get better as I go along. They aren't the best books ever, but they're not bad. I found the first one was the worst, the 2nd was better and the 3rd is really interesting, especially if you're a fan of the show.
