Publisher's Summary

What happens when Heaven’s hardest working saint is forced to take a vacation?

In Saint Peter Takes a Holiday, or It's About Time, a reluctant Simon Peter heads for Aruba and a week in the sun. There, he encounters danger, romance, intrigue...and of course comedy. Magic, miracles, sunbathing, and golf, they all happen in this tropical adventure.

Saint Peter Takes a Holiday is the latest novella in the best-selling fantasy comedy series, Circles In Hell. CIH has been compared to other comic works of “Hell Fiction”, such as The Screwtape Letters and Good Omens, and to the paranormal humor of Tom Holt, Christopher Moore, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams.

This one left me feeling all prickly inside

- Josh here Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely love this series. While this entry is shorter than the others, it was a very fun listen (Mike Gilboe did fantastic, as usual) and had me imagining many of the scenes St. Peter found himself in. I loved the tie-ins to Steve Minion as well as one of my favorites, Beelzebub. It is always a wonderful journey as we continue to explore this version of the afterlife. This is a great continuation for one of my top three favorite book series. Give it a listen/read, you will feel quite prickly afterward!

Another great addition to the series.

What a great imagination and a terrific sense of humor. I look forward to the next book.

Caine's romp through the afterlife continues

The fun and inventiveness you've come to expect - but the voice given to St Peter was really annoying and offputting.

Hard Listen

Having read all the previous books, when I found this one is audio, I was quite pleased. As soon as I started listening, that joy faded fast. The vocalization of Peter is somewhere best left on Gilligan’s Island where I assume it arose from. After four chapters, I could not go on. Sorry but this might have been a good story.

I prefer the main storyline

A nice diversion, but I prefer the main Steve Minion storyline. Had an interesting plot so we will see how it ties in to the rest.
