Book Review: Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister

It’s every parent’s nightmare. Your happy, funny, innocent son commits a terrible crime: murdering a complete stranger. You don’t know who. You don’t know why. You only know your teenage boy is in custody and his future lost. That night you fall asleep in despair. Until you wake . . . . . . and it is yesterday. Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Another chance to stop it. Somewhere in the past lie the answers, and you don’t have a choice but to find them . . .


I read Wrong Place Wrong Time on the BorrowBox app and I regret it. This is a book where you need to get a physical copy. I was totally engrossed in the story and would have read it a lot faster if the phone didn’t make my eyes tired.

It started off as the usual psychological thriller. Then the timeline started to move backwards. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. It certainly made the book different but it didn’t take away from how enjoyable it was. I loved how we kept jumping to conclusions about what was happening just to see how wrong our perception was. The plot also had a lot of twists and turns that kept me guessing throughout.

I enjoyed the characters as well. While Jen was great but slightly predicated, Todd, Kelley and and some other characters were definitely in the grey zone. I love changing my mind about characters.

Overall? One of the best books I read this year. You can pick up a copy here.
