My Thoughts 


If Hell really is other people (and really, how could it not be?) then Ms. Lux’s Sign Here is right on the money. 


Fun and irreverent, this title is a full on fun read. The synopsis sold me and I read this debut novel over a two day period. Smart with some super cringey hellacious scenarios, I really enjoyed the humor in the story.


As I wrote, the synopsis had me very interested and I wasn't disappointed, however, this one isn't perfect - I found the ending painfully abrupt and a little too clean for my tastes while also not really resolving anything, hence my 3 star rating. 


I do look forward to reading more of the author's future work.

Description


A darkly humorous, surprisingly poignant, and utterly gripping debut novel about a guy who works in Hell (literally) and is on the cusp of a big promotion if only he can get one more member of the wealthy Harrison family to sell their soul.

Peyote Trip has a pretty good gig in the deals department on the fifth floor of Hell. Sure, none of the pens work, the coffee machine has been out of order for a century, and the only drink on offer is J├Ągermeister, but Pey has a plan—and all he needs is one last member of the Harrison family to sell their soul.
 
When the Harrisons retreat to the family lake house for the summer, with their daughter Mickey’s precocious new friend, Ruth, in tow, the opportunity Pey has waited a millennium for might finally be in his grasp. And with the help of his charismatic coworker Calamity, he sets a plan in motion.
 
But things aren’t always as they seem, on Earth or in Hell. And as old secrets and new dangers scrape away at the Harrisons’ shiny surface, revealing the darkness beneath, everyone must face the consequences of their choices.
