“I haven’t been to the zoo in years,” Kate says as they stroll through the Madagascar exhibit. “And I can’t remember the last time I made it up to the Bronx.”

“When did we go to that Yankees game?” Castle asks, reaching for her hand and lacing their fingers together. “Was that last spring?”

Mr. Richard Castle and Ms. Katherine Beckett
