Heavenly Date and Other Flirtations by Alexander McCall Smith

In these hilarious stories of perverse meetings, casual dates and romantic encounters, we are enthralled, saddened, inspired and surprised by the encounters we’re made privy to. McCall Smith, a master of the unexpected and a seamless storyteller, revels in offering us the quirky complications inherent in entanglements which human beings engineer for themselves – entanglements that can be shocking, edifying, compulsive, complicated and sometimes, completely disastrous.

This is an exceptional collection of stories from an author whose rapidly growing audience delights in his extraordinary imagination and delicious insights into the endlessly fascinating peculiarities of the human condition.

...but the stories are mostly excellent. Just a couple of duds.

I'm a huge Alexander McCall Smith reader, but I really didn't enjoy this book. I read the sample first and then purchased the book. I was so disappointed. The first story was the only one I actually enjoyed. If I could ask for my money back I would. I'll stick with all the other series I enjoy. I really wish I liked this more, I love this author.

The author offers incredible insight into both sexes point of view. This is a strong collection of stories that not only entertains but provides a lot of food for thought.

As I closed on the last page of 'The #1 Ladies Detective Agency', I realized I was smiling all over myself and wanting to shout, 'YES!!!!!' Alexander McCall Smith is now on my list of five-star authors and viewers of human nature. One month from my purchase of this book I am now the pleased owner of four more. Thank you, Mr. Smith!
