This was one of those books which you find out at the beginning something horrible is going to happen and the rest of the story is everything that led to that moment. So from the get go you know this is going to be a disturbing story but you have this compelling need to see it all play out. I honestly wasn't expecting to whip through this book in a day, but that's exactly what I did. This was my first time reading anything by the author, and I look forward to checking out her other books. Paige's This was one of those books which you find out at the beginning something horrible is going to happen and the rest of the story is everything that led to that moment.
Paige's life is a bit of a mess at the moment. She lost her job and found out her boyfriend has been sleeping with her cousin, Heather. Paige's friend Chloe is dealing with an unfaithful husband and she's not sure how much more she can put up with. Paige's mother, Joan, has been a widow for two years and seems ready to move forward with the next chapter in her life. The women will each join a dating website for a variety of reasons but these women better be careful because there's a killer on the loose. There's definitely a creepy thriller type aspect to the story but I think its better classified as a women's fiction read.
The women are all dealing with different issues and I found myself just as interested in the regular "trying to find happiness when life throws you a curveball" stories as I did with the whole psychotic male storyline. My only real criticism of the book is I'm feeling conflicted about how the author chose to wrap things up. I'll just leave it at that rather than go too much into spoiler territory.
I didn't hate the ending, but I would be interested in hearing more about the author's writing process for some context. Definitely recommend if you are in the mood for a good page turner just as long as you don't expect it to be a full on thriller.

Paige had been in a relationship that she thought would last forever, that is until walking in on her boyfriend with her cousin, Heather. Paige and Heather may only be cousins but the two could also pass for twins and from the moment they were born the competition started between them.
As Paige begins to date again her best friend Chloe finds her husband has been on the dating sites too as she feels their marriage slipping away. All the Wrong Places had a bit of everything going for it with even some funny moments along the way which made it a rather compelling read.

An entertaining, humorous read, that highlights the pitfalls of the dating scene and meeting men online — fake or embellished profiles, skeevy creeps, and uncomfortable first dates. The chapters in the killers head were more serious, but even some of his views and mistakes amused me. As per always, Joy Fielding excels at domestic drama, troubled marriages, and relationships between family and friends.
She also does a great job when it comes to creating bitchy and nasty characters. And, she writes well-rounded, accurate children. Joy Fielding's pretty amazing! My advice is not to take this one too seriously, as my guess is it's intended to be satirical and ironic, and if you start thinking too much about some of content, particularly the ending, it's actually quite dark and disturbing. A fun read, but I prefer her books that are more psychologically suspenseful, such as Charley's Web and Don't Cry Now.
View all 24 comments. This book is an excellent read. I do like that the author include his point of view in the story. I like the concept of online dating and the killer can be an everyday good looking person that could easily fool anyone into thinking he could be the good guy instead of the bad ones. This book is told in the third person point of view following Mr. Right Now as he is having dinner and torturing a lady he met on a dating app. The story then goes back to 3 weeks earlier, following Paige Hamilton, 33 as she experienced yet another failed date with a man she met on a dating app.
Paige is currently living with her 70 year-old mother after her father passed away 2 years ago. Chloe married a handsome womanizer Matt. She joined the dating app to look for excitement. All the Wrong Places is well written. I like the luck Paige was having even though she personally probably hate all the inconveniences thrown her way.
I do recommend everyone to read this book. Please be assured that my opinions are honest. Feb 26, Susanne Strong rated it really liked it Shelves: buddy-read , netgalley. Four women desperately want a man and turn to online dating to find him. Tsk tsk.. Paige is highly intelligent, pretty and successful - up until now, that is.

There is a serial killer on the move stalking the online matchmaking sites. The story centers around a young career woman named Paige who recently and suddenly ended a relationship when she found her cousin and live-in boyfriend in a very compromising position and quickly moved in with her widowed seventy year old mother who lives close by to her best friend Chloe, who seems to be in a bad relationship as well. Paige decides to try online dati Beware! Paige decides to try online dating since it is not easy to meet single men anymore. Be careful what you wish for!
I have always been a fan of Joy Fielding and enjoy her writing style. There is quite a bit of drama with all the characters and a light touch of humor to their personalities which makes them very relatable. This is not a cozy mystery but it had myself feeling comfortable and then I get a big wallop that this is more a subdued, suspenseful thriller and not a warm and fuzzy read. View all 4 comments. This is not a thriller; you already know who the baddie is. It's really a close look at the relationship drama between a mother, Joan and her daughter, Paige; Paige and her BFF, Chloe, and Paige's contentious relationship with her cousin, Heather and the dangers inherent in online dating, prevalent considering our modern age.
Be warned, there are many unsympathetic characters here and I'm not talking about the serial killer. There are also triggers of sexual violence and torture so be wary. Unfortunately, there's a serial killer lurking amongst them. Nearly all of the women are unlikable with the exception of Joan, the mother. Paige is a daddy's girl still suffering the loss of her charismatic father after his death can you say Freudian?
Chloe is a doormat who finally wises up but spends a lot of time talking about how handsome and manly her husband is and how she will miss that if she left him. For real? For real. And even though I want to forget about Heather, it's hard not to and not because she's brilliant or witty or diabolical; in fact, she's the total opposite. Heather is a stereotype of a stereotype of the mean girl found in every chick lit film or soap opera ever written or made. There's a lot of hate and resentment simmering among the women, and it just got to be too too much; Paige hating on her uncle for still being alive while her dad had passed; ditto for Joan; Heather sowing her oats with Paige's ex bf, Chloe's incessant whining over her adultering husband's pretty face.
Seriously, are they women or teenagers? You know it's a book when almost all the men the women are married to or were with are gorgeous. This is not real life. The men in the ladies' lives are mostly adultering douches, weak, one dimensional caricatures not unlike their female counterpart, Heather. Don't worry, I didn't forget the serial killer. He's a cookie cutter exaggeration of what a serial killer is, reminiscing about his twisted childhood and horrible parents and that's what made him who he is today.
Naturally, he's gorgeous, too. How else can he lure so many unsuspecting flies into his web? There's a lot of filler; the serial killer pontificating about who is worthy of his time and attention and culinary skills; Paige showing her mom how to use a dating app, Chloe's domestic drama with her psycho husband, Heather's whining and moaning about trying to one-up her cousin. You know its a bad sign when you don't care about what happens to most of the characters and that's exactly how I felt when I got to the ending. Terry Stormon what rubbish- on line dating, gee, who couldn't write about that?
This would have taken no effort whatsoever, no need for any research. Return to sender. Elaine Terry wrote: "what rubbish- on line dating, gee, who couldn't write about that? This woul This was a disappointing read.

Feb 16, Amy-GallivantingPages rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-netgalley. My favorite read of so far. Such a fast paced thrilling read until the very end that really makes you think twice about online dating and the scary world we live in. I really loved Paige, the main character. Her mom Joan and her best friend Chloe were well developed and likeable as well. Her cousin, Heather, well she's heinous to say the least. This book has it all: love, lust, deceit, murder, strained relationships with family members-just all kinds of drama.
I couldn't put this down and highly recommend it!!!!

I didn't see much of a thriller here. While I enjoyed the book somewhat, the book seems primarily about the relationship between all of the characters with this deadly date in the background approaching. Don't expect a big mystery because you'll have it figured it out quickly. Most of the characters are unlikable, and the book will drag on slightly. May 12, Melody McNamara rated it really liked it.
This book was a quick and entertaining read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I've been a big fan of Joy Fielding for many years, preferring her older books to the more recent ones, which I don't always love. This was one of her best books in recent years. Not a "harrowing thriller" as described on the blurb, yet a suspenseful and addictive story centering on 4 women and a serial killer.
