    *** 5 Stars ***Expected Publication: March 12, 2019Loooooooove this book! My favorite read of 2019 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: lov...
  • Dave
    Fielding offers us a modern-day thriller about the angst of on-line dating and the terror that one can accidentally stumble across when one should know better. Part Looking for Mr.Goodbar and part Night Stalker, the story places out against a backdrop of everyday life and everyday problems, with terror lurking in the background. The big city is scary. Be careful. Be on your guard. A fairly easy read, it's target audience is probably the female re...

    Joy Fielding is a writer who tells a great story. She invites the reader into the world she has created and I've never been disappointed by any of her work. All the Wrong Places is primarily about relationships. Paige Hamilton is the central character. She's smart and caring and successful in her career. Her life took an unexpected nose dive when her company is bought up by a larger firm who brought in all their own people and Paige lost her job....
  • Elaine
    Thanks to NetGalley for a Kindle ARC of All The Wrong Places. This is not a thriller; you already know who the baddie is. It's really a closer 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...
  • Janeadams Adams
    The wrong date with a man who styles himself as Mr. Right Now on multiple on-line dating sites is a set-up for this riveting thriller about a mother, daughter, her rival and her best friend who are - you guessed it - looking for love in all the wrong places.. It's a publishing trope these days - serial killers who stalk their prey on line and naive or just unwitting victims - but Fielding is an accomplished writer who handles even well-worn plots...
  • Donna Hines
    What could possibly go wrong when 4 women seek love online?No seriously???Well for one these ladies are quite an adventure in and of themselves and that's what the story relies heavily upon is there quirks and sense of character or better yet judgement.Not to mention we have a nut case running around killing women in the area while using an alias online to hide the real persona.All the Wrong Places shows that you really can't let your guard down ...
  • Michael David
    ALL THE WRONG PLACES is a perfect thriller to come out at what is probably the height of online "dating." Paige is a once successful woman who had the perfect job and perfect boyfriend. When both of them end and she finds herself moving back in with her mother, Joan, until she can get back on her feet, she decides to try her luck at online dating. Unfortunately there are some missing women in the area and it turns out there is a serial killer who...

    Thank you to Net Galley and the Publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review "All the Wrong Places" by Joy Fielding. I can't tell you how excited I was to find out I was approved to read this. I have been a Joy Fielding fan for many years and "Still Life" is one of my all time favorites. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in this one. The basic premise is about women on dating sites looking for Mr. Right swipe right on "Mr. Right Now...
  • Lee Staes
    All the Wrong Places is a fascinating mix of thriller, family drama and the story of a serial killer. It is an interesting look at online dating and some of the possible dangers. It was a bit confusing at times with all the different characters but as the story unwinds everything got sorted out. There are many surprises, twists and turns that kept me in suspense until the shocking, abrupt conclusion, making this an enjoyable read.
  • Tarrah Marie
    Joy Fielding offers an eerie account of what can happen when a serial killer lingers in the anonymity of online dating.While this book started out with potential and strong character build, the narrative ended up feeling drawn out and convoluted as we waited to see how all the cursory characters melted into the main plot. It felt as if there were two separate stories being told at multiple points in the book. Unfortunately, this unwoven plot took...
  • Jill
    This book delved into multiple characters and their stories but they were all somehow related. I really liked the story and thought the ending was good. It really surprised me.
  • Sue Fernandez
    Thank you to Random House/Ballantine and Net Galley for an advanced read of this title. I have enjoyed Joy Fielding's books for years, and I was excited to delve into her latest. This book narrates between several characters, including mother/daughter, a cousin, and a best friend. Some are more likable than others, but to me this is a good character development if I can't stand some of them. That said, it gives us an inside look into dating, and ...
  • Jeanne
    The characters and plot kept me interested although I thought knew what the ending would be, I was right but it still surprised me with an ironic last few paragraphs. Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for this arc in exchange for an honest review
  • Dawn Byers

    ARC provided from Ballantine Press vía Net GalleyGenre - ThrillerRelease date: March 12, 2019My opinions are my own 2.5 stars - rounded up to 3 I’ve been a Fielding fan for many years, that’s why I rounded it up to 3 stars. This was not one of my favorites. Usually she can keep you on the edge of your seat as far as thrillers go but this didn’t do that for me. I’m not sure I would even classify it as a thriller, or as a psychological thr...
  • Jo Dervan
    The book begins with a scene in which a handsome serial killer is torturing a woman that he met on a dating website.The man, who uses the name of Mr. Right Now, had been murdering women he met online in the Boston area for a few months. He had done the same thing in other cities where he had lived for brief periods. He would text the woman for a few weeks, then make a date to meet in a local bar. Once the woman felt comfortable with him, he would...

    Having read this author previously, I was really looking forward to reading the ARC (ebook) provided by NetGalley for All the Wrong Places. I found this extremely easy reading and entertaining. It kept my interest, though it didn't get extremely deep as far as character development. The story line follows four characters and their respective relationship statuses with the opposite sex. One is a 70 year old widow, having been married for the major...
  • Tiffany Foskey
    Ok I have read all of Joy Fieldings books and loved every single one until this one. I hate to say it but in my opinion this is her less exciting non thriller novel.. All of her others have been "thrill suspense keep you on the edge of your seat" but sadly not this one. It was very disappointing. Ok Paige is a young recently single woman who tries out a couple of dating sites to get back in the game. Little does she know there is a serial killer ...
  • Heather
    A grateful nod to Netgalley and Random House/Ballantine who allowed me to read an advance copy before it reaches bookstores on March 19. I can easily visualize the beginning scene as a lead-in to an episode of “Criminal Minds.” That scene got me to sit up and take notice of the chills running down my spine.Paige, newly fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend in favor of her cousin, takes a stab at online dating. She lives with her moth...

    How much do you really know about that new friend or follower you connected with on social media or online dating site? Could a psychopath be searching for that “right” person to victimize as they are looking at the seemingly benign photos and posts that you upload concerning yourself and your family? These are some of the questions you might ask yourself after reading this book. Joy Fielding has written an enthralling psychological thriller ...
  • Denise Satin
    I usually love Joy Fielding’s book. This book was very different than her other book. It revolves around four women and online dating sights. It was a good plot in which there is a serial killer on the dating sites and you are led to believe who of the four girls will land up with the serial killer. I was disappointed because I figured out early on into the book who it would be even though the author keeps throwing out to the readers that it wi...
  • Amber Boos
    I have read Joy Fielding for over 30 years. Her books are like old friends. I have read them all and she has had hits and misses, but they are all comforting, fast, easy reads. Like Lifetime movies. This one falls in between a hit and a miss in that it is definitely fast-paced with something happening in each chapter. I enjoyed all of the characters, even annoying Heather, and their points of views, I pretty much had the ending figured out but it...
  • Monica C
    I always look forward to Joy Fielding's newest books, knowing they will frighten me while keeping me hooked. This book was different from the usual thriller. We know who the killer is but have to wait and see who the victim will be. The look into a very frightening aspect of the online dating world made me thank my lucky stars I am not in need of online dating, because this would have scared me off! The complicated family dynamics added another l...
  • Mama K
    I have been a Joy Fielding fan/follower for 37 years. Some of her books i loved, some i merely liked, some i dragged my way through dutifully because they were Fielding books. This one isn't necessarily BAD (i don't think Fielding has the ability to write a truly bad book), but it is quite formulaic and the characters stereotypical and predictable. I had it solved by 32% into the book. But it was an ok read for the early cold evenings.I received ...

    Paige has gone through a rough breakup with Noah, is in the middle of looking for a new job, and dealing with the death of her dad. She decides to delve into the world of online dating, and she begins to talk to someone who might not have the best intentions. This is quite the scary book to read if you are single and doing the online dating thing!I also loved the ending. I enjoy a book that doesn't always have a tidy wrap-up and Fielding does a g...
  • Marianne
    This book is definitely not a thriller. Not that it wasn’t a good story. I enjoyed it and the writing was top notch. It is a story about relationships from four completely different perspectives. The characters are well developed, some incredibly unlikable. The process (and horror) of online dating will make any singles think twice after this one. The ending was somewhat abrupt, unfinished. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and Random House Publi...
  • Leeann
    3.5 stars.I enjoy Joy Fielding as an author and usually find her books well written and compelling. While I enjoyed All the Wrong Places, it was not my favorite of hers. That being said, the characters were well drawn: I found myself cheering for Joan, shaking my head in disbelief at the atrocious Heather and being worried for Paige, amongst others. The ending, as other reviewers have also stated, left the reader feeling a bit unmoored. Thank you...
  • Vnunez-Ms_luv2read
    Very good read. Keeps your interest and is very well written. Good book about 4 women who are seeking mates/love on the internet. The results will keep you reading this book every chance you get. I look forward to more from this author. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publisher for the ARC of this book. Although I received the book in this manner, it did not effect my opinion of this book nor my review.
