Seventeen year-old Eliza Taylor’s latest run-in with New York City Police lands her on a bus with a one way ticket to the smalltown of Blackwater, Missouri. Unimpressed with both her new home and being an indentured servant for her caustic and ridiculously ancient aunt, Eliza soon thinks local hotties Dante Kane and Chase Crawford might make her stay in this little backwater town worth her while.
Unfortunately, Eliza’s panache for getting into trouble rears its ugly head as she discovers her aunt’s shop sells more than just postcards and shot glasses. Her aunt’s “private showroom” houses each of the seven deadly sins: Pride, Envy, Wrath, Avarice, Lust, Gluttony, and Sloth. But stopping her evil aunt from damning the souls of unsuspecting teens has a price – and that price might very well be Eliza’s eternal soul.
Can Eliza survive her evil aunt, outwit the dark master she serves, and keep a few souls out of Hell, including her own? She’s not so sure, but seeing as how she likes her soul in the upright and firmly out-of-hell position, she’s gonna give it her best shot. Hopefully her best won’t end up killing her and ruining her afterlife – God knows her normal life is hard enough!
17-year old Eliza sucked her evil Aunt Celeste into a Monet painting and just survived negotiations with her aunt’s demonic boss, Asher. She also managed to save her new-semi-cursed boyfriend’s soul from eternal damnation (at least for the next 30 days), but can she and Dante, her dark and mysterious co-worker, do the same for a nasty piece of work ruled by Wrath?
Eliza’s new deal entails having to convince Andy Andersen to let go of her hatred for Caroline Hayes, the girl who single-handedly ruined her perfect life. Can she accomplish the impossible while also fighting her own deadly sin in just one month? Eliza better get it together quick, because if she doesn’t figure out a way to get Andy to commit a virtuous act for Caroline, then it’s not just her soul on the line. A whole lot of people are coming along for the ride, and this particular ride’s final destination only dumps out into one place: Hell.
