As we welcome the weekend with open arms, find out what Louise Lee’s, author of A Girl Called Love, perfect weekend is.
Full English or a super-food smoothie?
A smoothie. Tick the 5-a-day box early. Feel smug. Have the full English for lunch.
Bookshop browsing or exploring a library?
Bookshop. Ones with sofas and a cake counter.
Re-reading an old favourite or trying something different?
Different. Especially an unfamiliar genre. It’s always enlightening.
Cocktails or coffee?
Cocktails. Coffee tastes like petrol and, traditionally, has no alcohol in it (*1).
(*1) Unless it’s an Irish coffee.
Traditional Sunday roast or grand kitchen experimenting?
Experiment. Assuming someone else’s cooking it. Ideally Antonio Banderas in his heyday.
Action-packed or total relaxation?
Action packed. As a writer you spend a lot of time sitting down.
Radio 2 or Radio 4?
Radio 4. The comedy and all that talking is soporific and good for the brain.
The feel of shiny-new book or the smell of a dog-earned classic?
For me, the smell – it’s intrinsically linked to primary school and feeling safe.
Dressing up to the nines or jeans & wellies?
Jeans and wellies. Then a onesie. Rinse and repeat all weekend.
A trip to the cinema or a DVD on the sofa?
On the sofa with a heat-pad and glass of red. Cinemas are too chilly and wine-free.

There’s a Dior lipstick, recommended by the one and only Florence Love, a copy of her latest novel A GIRL CALLED LOVE (previously THE LAST HONEYTRAP) and an EXCLUSIVE copy of the second in the series IN THE NAME OF LOVE.
