In the Name of Love

Florence Love 2: a laugh-til-you-cry page-turner full of family secrets

By Louise Lee

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

'I am in LOVE with Florence Love' - Mel Giedroyc

Jump on board with Louise Lee's irresistible follow-up to A Girl Called Love. Fans of Marian Keyes, Why Mummy Drinks and Eleanor Oliphant, this one's for you.

'A fresh, funny new voice that made me laugh out loud' Woman & Home

Retired, technically, Florence Love is a long way from her London Private Investigator glory days. But her latest target is achingly personal.

A ration of Montepulciano in her water pouch, Flo finds herself racing around Italy on a borrowed Vespa in the name of love. Bambi Love, specifically. Her mum - missing for twenty-five years. The one case that's still unsolved.

To find Bambi, maintaining focus will be critical. Florence must not be distracted.

Not even by a beautiful, goosebump-inducing Italian stranger with mafiosi friends and a habit of suddenly disappearing himself, who knows far more than he's letting on...
