Five Fab Books by Paige Toon



If there is one author I recommend time and time again it's Paige Toon. She's a best selling author having sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide and has written fourteen women's fiction novels, a three-part spin-off series and a collection of short stories. 

I can't remember how I discovered Paige Toon or the name of the first title I read but since then I think I've almost managed to get through every last one of her releases - I just enjoy them so much. Excitedly, May sees the release of her latest title so, with that in mind, I thought I'd share some of my favourite titles with you. 

If you enjoy smart romantic fiction then you'll absolutely adore Paige Toon!


Thirteen Weddings
One of the many things I love about Paige's books are the characters and their development and this was no different. It has all the magic of previous books while still managing to touch on harder issues. It's light-hearted, fun and certainly worth a read. 

A year ago, Bronte left Sydney for a wedding in England, where she met newly single Alex. After one amazing night together they parted ways.
Now working on the picture desk for a glossy magazine in London, Bronte is about to meet a new colleague - who turns out to be all too familiar. Alex is now engaged, but the memory of the spark they felt when they met hasn't died. As Alex's wedding day looms, it is clear that he and Bronte have unfinished business...

Five Years from Now
I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved Five Years from Now - I think it might be my favourite. The characters are so likeable and the events that change their lives are honest and heart-breaking. It's a really emotional read that has you praying for that happy ever after 

Nell and Van meet as children when their parents fall in love, but soon they are forced worlds apart.
Five years later, they find each other. Their bond is rekindled and new feelings take hold, but once again they must separate.
For the next two decades, fate brings Nell and Van together every five years, as life and circumstance continue to divide them. Will they ever find true happiness? And will it be together?


The One we Fell in Love With
I breezed through this in a day when I first bought it - it's such a warming and uplifting read that I just didn't want to put it down. It's quite easy to tell between the main characters once you get going and with unpredictable twists and exciting turns, it's one you're bound to fall in love with too. 

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 successful musician seems to be vanishing before her eyes.
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…

The Last Piece of my Heart
This one had me hooked from the first chapter as it follows a beautiful story of love and loss. I felt so many emotions while reading The Last Piece of my Heart which just encouraged me to turn page after page as I read through it in a day. I loved every moment of this book and admired the characters so much. It's the perfect touch of heartwarming fiction we need at the moment.

A successful travel journalist, Bridget has ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog about the missing pieces of her heart into a book. But after a spate of rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition.
Nicole Dupré died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel. Tasked with finishing the book, Bridget is thankful to have her foot in the publishing door, even if it means relocating to Cornwall for the summer and answering to Nicole's grieving husband, Charlie...



If You Could Go Anywhere
Paige's latest novel, If you Could go Anywhere was released in 2019 and I lapped this up and I didn't want it to end. It's incredibly heartwarming and I felt like I was there with them within the book as I was reading it which only seems to happen when I read one of Paige's novels. It's a story of love in the strangest of ways which in parts is heart-wrenchingly sad - it is so worth picking up and reading.

Angie has always wanted to travel. But at twenty-seven, she has barely stepped outside the small mining town where she was born. Instead, she discovers the world through stories told to her by passing travellers, dreaming that one day she'll see it all for herself.
When her grandmother passes away, leaving Angie with no remaining family, she is ready to start her own adventures. Then she finds a letter revealing the address of the father she never knew, and realises instantly where her journey must begin: Italy.
As Angie sets out to find the truth – about her family, her past and who she really is – will mysterious and reckless Italian Alessandro help guide the way?

Reading the synopsis of Thirteen Weddings makes me want to order it ASAP, as I'm reading the rest of them and I need/want them all! I love the sound of them! Adding them onto my TBR list!
