Publisher's Summary

Kelly Frank is EarthCent's top diplomat on Union Station, but her job description has always been a bit vague. The pay is horrible and she's in hock up to her ears for her furniture, which is likely to end up in a corridor because she's behind on rent for her room. Sometimes she has to wonder if the career she has put ahead of her personal life for 15 years is worth it.

When Kelly receives a gift subscription to the dating service that's rumored to be powered by the same benevolent artificial intelligence that runs the huge station, she decides to swallow her pride and give it a shot. But as her dates go from bad to worse, she can only hope that the supposedly omniscient AI is planning a happy ending.

    "Funny and well written!!"

    This is not a it, sexy romance. It is a funny and well written book you'll want to listen to multiple times. Ending was a little abrupt so I'm thrilled there is a follow on concerning her married life. If you want a good beach read that will keep you laughing, this is it!

    "If you can read this, buy this book."
    Any additional comments?

    A gem of a book that came as a complete surprise to me.

    Date Night at Union Station is a combination slice of life science fiction mixed with light-hearted comedy. Frankly, a match made in heaven if you ask me. The book follows two characters. Primarily it follows Kelly, who is Earth's top diplomat in a section of space at the largest space station. She is surrounded by all sorts of oddball races and species, but they are nothing compared to her mother nagging her to get married since she is already past 30! The other character is Joe, who sorts and sells scrap in the space station with his adoptive son. Sound like a romance? Well, it kind of is, but it kind of isn't. It's more a series of tales about dates that are anything but. You have a maybe homicidal queen in need of a king. Or you have a space pirate selling counterfeit goods that mistakenly agrees to a date through a dating service with the woman trying to catch him. Or beyond the dates there are rich little girls selling flowers to buy a baby brother. Or an entire alien species that is sabotaging humanity's chances at a video game tournament.

    You get the idea. The book is just like that, some fun bad first date stories in space.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes slice of life or light-hearted laughs with a light feeling overall, something like a spring day before it gets too hot.

    "A wonderful listen."

    Good bit of humor and a quite believable set of characters and situations. I wish the others were available in Audible as well.
