Date Night on Union Station - E. M. Foner
Date Night on Union Station is the first novel in the EarthCent Ambassador series. This book was free when I downloaded it. It's now 99 cents for the kindle. Very few science fiction novels can make me laugh out loud. This one does it with exuberance. Union Station is a moon-sized alien space station run by a Stryx AI named Gryph. It's the most important space station in the sector. Even though humans are a drop in the bucket population wise, there are still over four hundred thousand of them to take care of. Kelly Frank is EarthCent's top diplomat on Union Station. She's the one tasked with taking care of her fellow humans. With that many humans to choose from, why is getting a decent date so hard! This is a hilarious science fiction tale of life and a lack of romance among the stars. Kelly deals with counterfeiters, kidnappers, cheaters, and con-men. It's all in a days work. Very highly recommended.
