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.

    "Very light and untaxing"
    What did you like best about Date Night on Union Station? What did you like least?

    Best - its a very easy listen it has some light humor and some good scenes.

    Least - its too short which makes it quite expensive per listening hour.


    Would you recommend Date Night on Union Station to your friends? Why or why not?

    Possibly it depends on the friend though. There are other books I would recommend first.
    It is a very easy listen it has no violence or X-rated content, in fact if it was a film it would probably have a U certificate so friends who wanted something light might enjoy it.
    Personally I would be more likely to recommend the Half Moon Hollow series by Molly Harper though - that has much more humour, or for Sci Fi the Hitch Hikers guide is definitely more likely to make you laugh out loud.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Not sure there is a stand out scene. I loved the 2 flower girls though, any scenes with them in were quite entertaining.


    Do you think Date Night on Union Station needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There is a follow up book, which makes sense as the first book, though complete, certainly leaves the possibility open. Undecided whether I will download though - the books are relatively expensive for what they are.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a non taxing book with light humour and a very predictable story this could be for you. Its not a page turner though I found it easy to dip in and out of.
    In general I prefer books that I don't want to put down - this isn't one of them.

    Any additional comments?

    A gem of a book that came as a complete surprise to me. <br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>You get the idea. The book is just like that, some fun bad first date stories in space.<br/><br/>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.

    "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!

    "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.

    What did you love best about Date Night on Union Station?

    I found this book to be... pleasant. It often made me mentally smile. It was clever and humorous. I nice diversion for those looking for something more "fun" than deep.

    This book was funny and entertaining. I really enjoyed it. No weird things happening and you could follow along without having to have a college degree. It was a unexpected jewel in a sea of crap. I give you 10 stars. Margaret
