At its heart, the story of All The Wrong Places by Joy Fielding is a product of today’s modern living realities. It is becoming more and more difficult to make personal connections and people are increasingly turning to machines for help.
The book is features four women — friends, family, rivals — and it all starts with an app. Paige, Heather, Chloe, and Joan download Match Sticks in an attempt to try their hands at online dating and maybe find “Mr. Right.” As they navigate the tricky world of dating apps, one of them makes a date with “Mr. Right Now,” whose perfect hair, winning smile, and charming banter would put any woman at ease.
What the four women don’t know is what Mr. Right Now has planned for the perfect date night: steaks, wine, candlelight…and by the end of the night, pain and a slow, agonizing death.
This is an addictive read…It captivates readers from beginning to the end.
All The Wrong Places is a commercial novel, so it is important to keep this factor in mind. We did enjoy the combination of a traditional suspense plot and rather modern “dating app” theme.
The book, which is written in easy language, gets the reader hooked early on and keeps the suspense element on until the end.
Overall, this is a fun read for fans of commercial suspense novels.
