All by Myself, Alone Read Online Free - A glamorous cruise on a luxurious ocean liner turns deadly in the latest mystery from “Queen of Suspense” and #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark.
Fleeing a disastrous and humiliating arrest of her husband-to-be on the eve of their wedding, Celia Kilbride, a gems and jewelry expert, hopes to escape from public attention by lecturing on a brand-new cruise ship—the Queen Charlotte.
On board she meets eighty-six-year-old Lady Emily Haywood, “Lady Em,” as she is known throughout the world. Immensely wealthy, Lady Em is the owner of a priceless emerald necklace that she intends to leave to the Smithsonian after the cruise.
Three days out to sea Lady Em is found dead—and the necklace is missing. Is it the work of her apparently devoted assistant, Brenda Martin, or her lawyer-executor, Roger Pearson, and his wife, Yvonne, both of whom she had invited to join them on the cruise? Or is it Professor Henry Longworth, an acclaimed Shakespeare scholar who is lecturing on board? Or Alan Davidson, a guest on the ship who is planning to spread his wife’s ashes at sea? The list of suspects is large and growing.
Celia, with the help of her new friends Willy and Alvirah Meehan, who are celebrating their forty-fifth wedding anniversary, sets out to find the killer, not realizing that she has put herself in mortal danger before the ship reaches its final destination.
Never, in all her long career as a #1 bestselling suspense novelist, has Mary Higgins Clark been in better form.

All By Myself, Alone by Mary Higgins Clark is a 2017 Simon & Schuster publication.
It seems like it has been a while since I touched base with Alvirah and Willy, so it felt good to hear from them again.
In this eleventh installment in the series, Alvirah and Willy are celebrating their forty-...

Okay enough is enough. I want Mary Higgins Clark to go on record and admit that one of the grade school aged grandchildren she's always thanking in her acknowledgements is now writing her books because if a third grader did not write this book I will eat my socks!
Beautiful Celia Kilbride was not...

Well-developed, intriguing characters. Interesting plot, albeit with no mind-bending surprises. What's not to like?
Not much, from my point of view. No, it won't jack up your blood pressure nor keep you anywhere from the edge of your seat. In fact, it's about as close to a "cozy" mystery as you ca...

2.5 Stars rounded up - but yeah, I was very tempted to round down...
This was a fast read and was in typical MHC style. The chapters tend to be short - sometimes very short. There are quite a lot of characters who are painted well but includes their daily minutia that sometimes can come off as tri...

A nice little 'on-board' mystery from MHC. I didn't think it was quite as good as some of her other recent novels, but made for an enjoyable audiobook. It features the MHC standby characters of Alvirah & Willy, who were first introduced years back when they won the lottery. I would r...

2 1/2 stars rounded down
So, this simplistic claptrap is what passes as a best seller these days? Very sad.
Can you imagine, there were 97 chapters in a book with fewer than 300 pages! 97! Flit, flit, flit. UGH! God forbid there be any depth to this story.
The entire time I was reading this I was wo...

Mary, where are thou?
I picked up this book at the library yesterday, where any newly-released Mary Higgins Clarks’ novels always consist of a long wait time before I can get my hands on them. I was lucky one might say, or maybe vigilant but I managed to snatch “All By Myself, Alone” right after i...

First and foremost you should know that I'm not a fan of Willy and Alvirah. I find them to be annoying when they are the main focus of the book as they have been the past couple of MHC's.
I like W & A in small doses, but having to continuously hear about them winning the lottery and Alvirah b...

This is my first book by prolific suspense author Mary Higgins Clark -- and it was very fun.
It includes the new (but more and more used) trope of the woman whose husband has been arrested for running a pyramid scheme. Ah, progress.
I really enjoyed this book. It follows a fairly predictable - but...
