    I got a pre-release version in exchange for an honest review. This novella story follows Saint Peter as he takes a little break from the pearly gates. The usual mixture of pop culture, mythology and humor made this an entertaining read. It is well paced and did not feel rushed. Strong recommend for any fan of Circles in Hell. Actually if you haven't read any of the Circles in Hell series you could read this and enjoy the story. I got a pre-release version in exchange for an honest review.

    After reading a pre-release version, this novella is another enjoyable addition to the Circles in Hell series. St. Peter takes a Vacation is a witty and fun read. I had no idea St. Peter was such a good golfer. I highly recommend the Circles of Hell series to everyone.

    Great light read A strange but enjoyable mix of mythologies. Cute plot. Many humorous scenes. Author has a very engaging style. Read it when you are depressed; it might give you hope.

    Much better than the Beelzebub "memoir". 4 and a quarter stars. Part of that is the short story nature of the book. Just not a big fan. Especially when they are "given equal billing" "numerically" as the other books in the series. Whatever. I didn't have to trudge through this one like prior. Sure, it wasn't keeping me on the edge of my seat. But less than 4 hours is not nearly enough time for that to happen. Still I enjoyed this book. Saint Peter was given attributes and personality FAR beyond Much better than the Beelzebub "memoir". 4 and a quarter stars. Part of that is the short story nature of the book. Just not a big fan.

Sure, it wasn't keeping me on the edge of my seat. But less than 4 hours is not nearly enough time for that to happen. Still I enjoyed this book. Saint Peter was given attributes and personality FAR beyond what one ever expected of/for him. I suppose that kept me a bit on the edge of my seat. And Mr. Studly still has a date ahead of him and possibly more(?). That puts a serious twist on his character. I DO wonder when this is exactly taking place as calls were made to Steve Minion during this so perhaps the last 60 years?? More likely the last 10 years or "future-dated" as the relationship between the two is so seemingly friendly. I have no idea yet with whom I'll be hearing about with regards to the League of Unusual Denizens. And I see the prospects here on Goodreads potential (or definitive) for a book 9 further delving into Steve's personal life I suppose. Perhaps Mr. Gilboe will be attempting to turn back and somehow continue Steve Minion's tale. Afterall, the afterlife is forever/eternal (least as much as we know such to be or that it can be such).

    St. Peter is the prickly but fair good guy in the prior Circles in Hell books. So I had low expectations for this book as I did not think Peter would make a good MC. Turns out the story of how Peter is reminded a bit of what humans must go through before arriving at the pearly gates is a good one. Upon being forced into taking a vacation St. Peter heads to the golf course. This results in Peter being forced into a foursome with a loathsome local character. It had been thought that all kobolds on St. Peter is the prickly but fair good guy in the prior Circles in Hell books.

It had been thought that all kobolds on the human plane went extinct hundreds of years earlier. However, the loathsome character turns out to be just such a kobold and, unbeknownst to St. Peter, this kobold is in possession of a magical artifact that should not exist and potentially gives the kobold the power to challenge even Peter. Bottom line: Well worth the read.

    I love this author's work! Always a fun story and a moral to it. Mark's writings are always enjoyable to me. There's fun to be had and a bit of a moral to learn. A great way to spend time in a different space than today's reality. I love this author's work! Always a fun story and a moral to it. Mark's writings are always enjoyable to me.

    A nice perspective. Humorous and allowing the reader to reflect on their own "humanity ". A damned good read. A nice perspective. Humorous and allowing the reader to reflect on their own "humanity ". A damned good read.

    Saint Peter takes a holiday. This story adds depth to Mail Cain's series set in the afterworld. As such, it enriches the stories and is really fun to read. Light-hearted and with the ability of not taking itself too seriously, this short tale of a saint taking a holiday should not be taken as a stand alone read. I recommend you get the rest of the series! Saint Peter takes a holiday. This story adds depth to Mail Cain's series set in the afterworld. As such, it enriches the stories and is really fun to read.

    Great read I've enjoyed all the Circles in He'll books and this one did not disappoint. Some good irreverent humor, a dash of sex, and a bit of mystery. Even old Nick would have to smile.

    Saint Peter on an island holiday, sporting a hot bod and a Rolex. Oh the possibilities! As with every other Mark Cain book I've read, this is hilarious yet somehow touching. You know that kind of book where you re-read a page, not because you really weren't paying attention, but because you loved it so much. That's this book. If you've read the other books in the series (wait, if you haven't, you are missing out - fix that immediately!!), you know a little bit about Saint Peter.

This book shares his backstory while at the same time sending him on a great adventure. There is action, romance, twists, and, of course, mayhem and hilarity. Mark Cain is one of my favorite authors, for good reason. His stories are consistently well designed and new. Some authors fall flat or become too repetitive after several books. Not Mr. Cain. It makes my day when I get that special notification from Amazon that a new Mark Cain book is published.

    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 list Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely love this series.

    Centre stage for St Peter Enjoyable short story following the interactions with the mere mortals like ourselves . Who knows this could be non fiction and we are but players in Mark Gains theme

    So much fun! Mark Cain has quickly become one of my favorite writers. His books are wildly creative, witty, thought provoking and as silly as a gopher in a velour sweatshirt. And I never realized that old Saint Pete was such a sexy bugger!

    Pleasant diversion Slightly naively written, perhaps inevitably considering the subject matter. Held the attention though, but I am not a great fan of happy ever after
