Blurb: When hockey star Linc Carpenter is banned from playing his beloved sport, he starts over, slinging drinks in Tampa. He’s inept as a bartender, so when the opportunity arises to train as a private investigator he takes it. He’s not very good at that either, but he still manages to get hired to follow fashion mogul Quentin Faulkner.
Linc’s incompetence is a hindrance, but Brady Williams, Faulkner’s studly bodyguard, may prove to be his undoing. Brady is drawn to Linc despite his bungling, and Linc’s stupidity may be just what’s needed to solve the case and save their lives.
Review: Bartender, P.I. is a little different from the novels I have read by Ethan Stone. He created that difference with comedy and some mystery melded together. He also gave the two MCs a soft side, but nothing overly dramatic or serious.
Linc and Brady’s relationships with their fathers were different. Linc is more carefree with his lifestyle, and Brady more conservative, but they make a cute couple. It was nice to see Linc willing to change some of his preferences. And, what great P.I.s they made in solving the big mystery! Just be prepared to snicker!
Narration: I have heard other audios by John Solo. He did a fairly good job performing, and gave each character their own voice and personality. His portrayal of Linc as the comedic character was really good, though I did have a mental block with Linc’s voice. Because I’ve listened to this narrator before, I noticed Linc’s voice was very similar to a character from another story, which I struggled to get past because the other character was a businessman, smart, and didn’t lead a carefree life like Linc.
