"Good comic science fiction is rarer than hen's teeth. This was a fun read."

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 fifteen 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.

It’s a rare moment when an old SF reader discovers a really good writer that they’d never heard of before. This is what happened when I opened “Date Night.” The novel traces the struggles of the hapless but likeable Kelly both to hold together her job as Acting Ambassador, despite her title being read as “Pretending to be ambassador” by half the aliens on the station, and get a successful date while not being thrown out of her apartment.

Might seem shallow and frivolous, but only if you aren’t paying attention.

Bought initially for a 4 month stint away from home with work and a lot of time on my hands as a light read between “worthier” books, and I bought all 12 (now 13 as one published shortly after my purchase). The first book is very much a primer for setting the scene and the lynchpin character, with the following books adding characters to the family and expanding the range of “problems” addressed. Some people have compared the humour to Pratchett, but I would have to disagree. The humour is not the sardonic humour of Discworld, nor the more madcap humour of Douglas Adams, but is an altogether gentler and more whimsical tone than Pratchett’s penetrating social commentary or Adams’s dizzying flights of intellectual hopscotch. The humour is certainly there, but it relies upon your understanding of the context and taking the next step yourself, rather than serving it up with a fanfare. There are no gigantic set-piece battles with the fate of Empires hanging on the actions of stern heroines, nor are there humble but amazingly powerful supernaturals banishing daemons and conniving faeries (both tropes which I enjoy and devour), but each subsequent book gently and humorously introduce plot devices that pose a question (or more) about society and relationships and perceptions and gives just enough of an answer to leave you expanding upon question yourself. Sounds awfully worthy and portentous, doesn’t it, but that is more because of my poor wordsmithing rather than any fault in the book. I found myself initially reading without paying much attention, but then becoming more and more intruiged with where the background action was going. The foreground stories are fun enough, but it is in what is not explicitly said in the scenery that captured my attention enough to finish my 12 books in 5 days. Very much a series for those who quietly question and wonder, and not for those who trumpet and bluster. It has aroused my curiosity, and I look forward to seeing which gentle nudgings are yet to come.

Quirky, refreshing, humourous ‘feel good’ series.

A refreshing read with some marvelous characters. I read the first 10 books some time ago, and was delighted to discover that the author has been particularly prolific and had another 3 for me to catch up with. Of course, then I had to go back to read the series again from the beginning. Quirky characters, and incidental humour make this series a light, easy read. It’s definitely a ‘feel good’ book. If you like your stories high-octane, erotic or emotionally violent, then this really isnt for you. However if you prefer a smoother meander through an alien space station. This is for you!

Smirk-worthy but not laughable

While not exactly ‘laugh out load’ the humour did raise a wry smile. The antics of two small girls in the midst of all that was happening to the story’s heroine was amusing.

Addictive reading

Hi. I go t this book because it was cheap and then never got around to reading it for over a year until I was going through my library. I read all the other 11 books in the series via Kindle Unlimited. It’s not space opera and there are no marines but it’s a great world with wonderful characters. My only suggestion, although not enough to dock a point, is to add a list of characters to the start of each book.
