The One we fell in love with by Paige Toon
Phoebe is caught between a rock and a hard place. Settle down and get married, or return to the French Alps to pursue her passion?
Eliza is in love with someone who is no longer hers. In fact, he probably never was… And her dream of becoming a musician seems to be spiralling down the drain.
Rose is out of a job and out of a boyfriend. To make matters worse, she’s been forced to move back in with her mother…
But these very different girls have one thing in common. Angus. The one they fell in love with…
Just fabulous. I love Paige Toon's books. I loved loads of things about it.
I loved the triplets as main characters. I don't think I've seen triplets used in a book before. It took a while for me to get my head around them but once I'd got there it worked well. I loved seeing the differences between them and was fascinated about what had gone wrong between them and needed to keep reading to find out more about what had happened as it was revealed in snippets over the course of the book.
Special mention has to go to Toby. By god he's sexy and I adored him. I'd gladly read a whole series of books about him.
I loved that this book has the messiest of situations the girls have to work through. The dilemma isn't every clear cut and makes you think about the way in which people find themselves in impossible situations which they had to try and work through both in a way that makes themselves happy but also in a way that doesn't upset those around them. It also made me think about what sometimes we give up for those we love.
As always with a Paige Toon book I loved the cameos of characters from previous books.
An awesome read. You'll love it if you loved Paige's previous books.
