I'm in Love with Castle

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

Look at that face. How could I not? Castle is in its fourth season and I'm hanging on every single episode. If you aren't familiar with the series, Richard Castle is a famous mystery author who shadows a female detective for plot material. He also is secretly (not so secretly to viewers) in love with Beckett (the detective). To give him more depth, he's going through those difficult teenage years with his daughter and his mother lives with them.

I started thinking of qualities in men, those most important to me. In my imagination, Castle is the perfect man, the kind most of us dream about.

What makes him lovable in my starry eyes? He's charming (with those little boy looks), funny, loyal to a fault (I'm not sure Beckett deserves his ultra-focused attention), cool, calm, honest, respectful, smart, he isn't afraid to reveal his feminine side, and he's good to his mom and daughter.

Yup, that's about it. Just love the guy. Check him out on Monday nights on ABC.
And why not try one of his books. Heat Rises is the latest in his Nikki Heat suspense thrillers. (Yes there really are books authored by Castle.)

Do you watch Castle? Do you agree with my assessment? Who's your favorite dream man?
