While I am getting tired of alcoholic PIs and normally steer clear of all of the PI novels taking place in and around the beaches of Florida, I was in a Christmas-y mood and picked this up.
The third book in the series, it stood on its own and was pleasant enough of a good listen. The narrator, whom I had never listened to before, did a fabulous job and it’s disheartening a search shows he does not take on many projects.
The light, cozy?, mystery involved several very defining characters, who each were not fully fleshed out, yet had more ingredients than a gingerbread man cookie.
I really liked Dan Coast and his side kick, Red, brought humour and fun bickering. Dan’s parents were interesting enough, and I would love if they visited more often!
There was an inconsistency ( I think ) about the placement of his gun at one point. I thought he had given it to a neighbor during a domestic scuffle (small sub plot that was very humanistic) only to pull it out of his glove box, without any indication he had seen her to retrieve it.
I really liked Coasts of Christmas Past, but I’m not sure if I’ll continue the series; simply because the genre isn’t among my usual searches.
Overall, this book was definitely worth my time and I may pick up another audible from this author in the future.
