All the Wrong Places by Joy Fielding Blog Tour

Today I'm the latest to take part in the blog tour for the release of Joy Fielding's latest novel - All the Wrong Places. 


You always know who you're meeting online . . . don't you?

Four women decide to explore online dating, downloading an app that promises they will swipe their way to love and happiness.

But not everyone is who they seem online. Hidden behind a perfect smile and charming humour, one man appears to be the perfect date. But the night he has planned is unlike any other.

The clock is ticking, and for one woman, this date might just be her last . . .

What a story!

The Premise

The novel seems to be based around two things - dating apps and what I infer to be a rather sinister serial killer.

Told from four women's points if view (and the killer himself), we are slowly introduced into their lives, the situations they are currently in and the circumstances that have led them to make the decision to join these dating apps.

Paige, her best friend Chloe, her mother Joan, and her quite terribly behaved cousin, Heather. As each one tries their hand at this online dating thing, one of them will come in contact with a who calls himself Mr. Right Now.

But just what lurk behind the screens?


What I found interesting is just how intelligent each woman appeared to be, highlighting the fact that anyone could fall victim to wrongdoing when treading into the world of dating.

Are they who they seem to be?

What's their real name, do they even look like their profile photo?

I've never used these apps myself but this book certainly had me thinking about more than the initial setting up of dates.

Psychological Thriller

All the perspectives and observations made in this novel seem scarily accurate.

You don't realise just how much a person can decipher from simple actions and words said, our bodies and mouths say a lot without having to say anything at all!

Creepy and suspenseful.

What was refreshing was the fact that in the beginning we essentially knew who the killer was but the victim was sort of unknown.

Got to love a twist!

I'll admit nearing the end I'd guessed the major twist coming but it didn't make it any less dramatic when it finally took place.

Joy builds tension well and this makes this a book which you won't want to put down. I could see this on the big screen.
