Review: 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…

Review: Oh i loved this book so much so just be prepared for a gushy review! I loved the premise of this book the moment I heard it, identical triplets and all of them falling in loved with the same guy-how awesome does that sound, but once you actually get to reading it, it is so much deeper than this! I laughed, i cried, I never wanted it to end!

So the characters, the triplets, although identical are very different people and they each get a turn at a chapter in this novel so the reader can see just how different each of them are. I loved that I got to hear about things from their points of view and I think that this made the novel even more pacey because something would happen and you would have to keep reading to find out what someone else thought of this happening or how they would react to an event. I really related to each of them in their own way but I think that Eliza strikes me as the strongest of the three even though she isn't seen that way by most of the other characters in this novel!

I loved the relationship that they had with each other and I loved that each of the triplets have a different relationship with Angus as well. There were parts of the novel where I thought that Angus was a little weak, that he knew he was loved and he was capitalising on it, but we only get to heard about what Angus thinks through the other women's chapters and so his story unfolds slowly, layer after layer being revealed and so I really changed my opinion about him by the end of the book!

There is so much to say about this book but so much of it would give away far too much. I was very lucky that I didn't hear any spoilers about this novel and I want to keep it that was for other people. I read this in a day, it is a proper page turner. Paige Toon writes the perfect length of chapter and the subject matter here lends itself well to a short chapter. I defy anyone not to love this and if you haven't already, this needs to be added to your TBR now!
