A Girl Called Love
Florence Love 1: the laugh-out-loud, breath-of-fresh-air comedy
By Louise Lee
Former Private Investigator Louise Lee's debut novel is endlessly entertaining and snortingly funny, Florence Love is a character to die for. Sometimes literally.
A Girl Called Love was previously published as The Last Honeytrap. If Eleanor Oliphant was your favourite or Why Mummy Drinks made you howl with laughter, Florence Love will be your new best friend.
'A funny, sassy page-turning debut' Jenny Colgan
Scott 'Scat' Delaney is a world famous jazz singer. He has ample opportunity to stray and his girlfriend, Alice, needs to know she can trust him.
Step up Florence Love, Private Investigator.
Florence has just ten days to entrap an A-Lister. Whilst sticking to her cardinal rule: One kiss, with tongues, five seconds - case closed.
A master of body language, evolutionary science and nifty disguises, her approach is unconventional, her success rate excellent. But targets are rarely as beautiful as Scat. Never fall for the target.
That is very bad form indeed.
A Girl Called Love marks the energetic launch of a brilliant new series. Once you've met Florence Love, you'll see the world in glorious technicolour at last.
Readers LOVE the Florence Love series

'Read this on holiday with my best friend. Had us both in stitches'
'So many memorable moments... you will laugh, cry and ultimately fall in love with Florence Love'
Louise Lee was once a Geography teacher. When oxbow lakes no longer floated her boat, she took the next, natural step in her career progression and became a Private Investigator. Memorable cases include a high-functioning bigamist with three wives and six children, who was set to marry a fourth; and losing a target because George Clooney started chatting her up in a bar.
Louise undertook an MA in Creative Writing at Birkbeck, and has had work commissioned by BBC Radio Four. The Florence Love novels follow the life of an irreverent, thoroughly 'modern' PI who specialises in entrapment, and Louise would love to hear from fellow Florences - stop by her website: www.louiselee.co.uk or drop her a line on Twitter: @louise_lee1.
If Louise's mum is reading this, the books are in no way based on her true experiences. Honest.
