Professional reviews

"HEAVENLY DATE demonstrates that Alexander McCall Smith was a talented writer well before his NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY books became bestsellers. These are captivating stories about "dating" in one sense or another. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, the tales focus on young and old characters in places as diverse as Australia, Italy, and Zimbabwe when it was still Southern Rhodesia. All the characters are trying to make the best of the lives they find themselves in. Lisette Lecat, who has been an outstanding narrator for McCall-Smith's bestsellers, shows here that she is equally adept with quite different material. Simon Prebble and Susan Lyons also excel. In every case, the sensitive narration adds to the pleasure intrinsic in the writing. A truly delightful listen. R.E.K. 2005 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
