    1. 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 fifth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise aboard a new luxury cruise liner, so opulent it could rival the Titanic Also on board is Celia, who is there to give a series of lectures, but who is also trying to f [...]


    2. 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 always by herself, alone She was once with someone, together.Unfortunately that someone turned out to be a Bernie Madoff knockoff who swindled her and a lot of her friends out of money and in an effort to [...]


    3. 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 can get without actually crossing that line although some readers might argue that it does In short, it s a perfect summer read on the beach or, in my case, while enjoying spring weather on our back deck as it c [...]


    4. 2.5 Stars rounded up but yeah, I was very tempted to round downThis 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 trivial and not interesting.There is a main plot of the murder of Lady Em who is a grand dame type of person and her cursed emerald necklace that goes missing The man of a thousand faces is supposedly aboard the shi [...]


    5. 3.5 starsA 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 recommend to her die hard fans, and those who enjoy well told, but not necessarily exciting, mysteries.


    6. The maiden voyage of the luxury cruise ship The Queen Charlotte commands a list of wealthy passengers including Lady Em who intends to wear her priceless emerald necklace Lady Em is surrounded by her companion, her financial advisor and his wife, lawyers, and an Interpol agent determined to stop a thief from stealing the infamous necklace Lottery winners Alvirah and Willy are on board as well as guest lecturers on gemology and Shakespeare This ship is luxurious but obviously quite different from [...]


    7. 2 1 2 stars rounded downSo, 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 wondering where the title for the book was coming from view spoiler And I discovered the answer on the very last page YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING THIS was it This was the crux of the entire story A romance that [...]


    8. 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 it became available.It s hard to dismiss the sense of familiarity I often get when I read MHC s books, maybe because the characters almost always come from similar background there s the wealthy, well bred, h [...]


    9. 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 being so tight with money Go ahead, A, splurge every once in awhile for a first class plane ticket you can t take the money with you when you pass away So, I almost didn t purchase this book when I saw they were [...]


    10. This is my first book by prolific suspense author Mary Higgins Clark and it was very fun.It includes the new but and 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 enjoyable outline Instead of an English country manor, we have all of our people isolated on a cruise ship Instead of norovirus, they have a jewel thief and murderer.I will definitely read another book by Mary Higgins Cl [...]



    11. Mary Higgins Clark always writes a mystery that leaves me guessing and changing my mind about who did it throughout the book In fact, her books make me realize that I wouldn t be a good detective at all This story is a little different in that it takes place on a cruise ship and with jewel thieves, murderers, and mayhem about, the passengers are in for the trip of a lifetimeif they can survive.There are a lot of shady characters roaming this ship and I honestly didn t trust any of them, excepti [...]



    12. I started reading Mary Higgins Clark s books right from the first onein the 1970 s when I was a teenager Her books were exciting to read for a very long time but they have grown boring to me over the years as she wrote and about rich people and had less true mystery, suspense and thrills They used to be page turners Now it takes me days to drag myself through this dry, dull stuff This book was predictable and I couldn t whip up enough emotion to like,love, or even hate any of the characters A [...]


    13. InkvotaryUntil a few weeks I wasn t even aware that this series exists Well, that sounds now a bit awkward As a huge MHC fan, I probably should have known it But in Germany the books are not always published the way they are supposed to be In her usual gently style, Mary Higgins Clark wrote this thriller with style and class The tone is soft and wonderful to read and the plot beautiful created and thought through Good, some dialogues and scenes show a Alvirah I am not so fond of But mostly she i [...]


    14. Sadly, this book missed the mark for me I ve been reading MHC since middle school and have read every book she s ever written, so I do have a certain sense of loyalty to her That said, I had felt for a while that her books were starting to get a little formulaic attractive single woman in peril, two potential love interests and one ends up being the killer I was thrilled when she started co authoring the Under Suspicion books with Alafair Burke because I think frankly she needed someone younger [...]


    15. This book is terrible.Mary Higgins Clark was my favorite mystery writer in middle school and high school and it may be time to break up with her First, the murder doesn t even happen until like 150 pages into the book This book takes place on a cruise ship and we have to be introduced to every single passenger on this ship Second, I do not like Alvirah and Willy I find them to be annoying busy bodies always butting in where they don t belong.The main mystery is just dumb Basically a rich old lad [...]


    16. These days, the best thing you can say about a Mary Higgins Clark book is that at least it wasn t her worst The days of gripping thrillers like A Cry In The Night, I ll Be Seeing You or Remember Me are long gone These days they re weak mysteries, with far too many characters, view points changing within the same paragraph, stilted dialogue, too much repetition, and too many useless facts that have nothing to do with the plot That s all in abundance here, but she has at least kept a lid on the to [...]


    17. Rated 3.5 stars Not a bad story but not as much of a thriller than mystery.



    18. I am a massive Agatha Christie fan, who has read and reread pretty much everything she wrote, including the pseudonym romance novels So it is probably a bit of a surprise that this is my first book by this author.I was so unimpressed The writing was pretty dire A case in point He is such a liar, she thought He was born lying Everything he told me was a lieSo, I guess he is a liar Lots and lots of telling instead of showing, and lots of this sort of repetition.The characters fare as well as might [...]


    19. Celia Kilbride, in hopes of escaping public attention concerning the arrest of her husband to be, proceeds to lecture on a luxurious ocean liner On the brand new cruise ship Queen Charlotte, Celia meets Lady Emily Haywood the owner of a priceless emerald necklace.Three days later, Lady Emily is found dead and her necklace is missing.If you ve enjoyed Murder On The Orient Express, this book is the one for you They re almost very similar, except the latter is a modern version of the former.Each pa [...]


    20. Novela de misterio con una trama que a priori seg n lees la sinopsis parece entretenida, pero cuyo desarollo no me ha gustado No me ha atrapado Personajes y situaciones forzadas La prosa es sencilla y se lee r pido, pero la historia me ha parecido simple y poco intrigante y con un final poco sorprendente.He le do otras novelas de la autora que me han gustado mucho m s, esta me ha defraudado un poco.


    21. too quick of a read same storyline when on a cruise out to sea always a rich older woman someone wants to kill for her million dollar jewelry.



    22. 2.5 Stars This was not one of MHC s better books I am happy that I checked it out of the library instead of purchasing it.


    23. Unos pasajeros se embarcan en un crucero de lujo, entre ellos se encuentra una millonaria poseedora del collar de Cleopatra y que cuenta con una maldici n.El comienzo del libro es muy similar a los libros de Agataha Christie, los personajes, la ambientaci n, te engancha a seguir leyendo, sin embargo, se enreda mucho en contar la vida de cada personaje y que les ha llevado a embarcarse en el transatl ntico Queen Charlotte, esto lo hace a trav s de cap tulos muy cortos, algunos de media p gina Tar [...]


    24. 4 25 5 Ahora que conozco a esta autora, estoy segura de que no ser el ltimo libro que lea escrito por ella Es un libro ligero, tambi n gracias a la edici n, ya que al ser la letra de tama o grande y de cap tulos cortos, da la sensaci n, por poner un ejemplo cotidiano, de estar comiendo pipas, sin poder parar y sin darte cuenta de ello Con este libro no puedes parar de leer A la vez ha sido un reto para m el imaginarme a cada uno de los personajes y cada escenario que la autora describ a, ya que [...]


    25. Many years ago, before I knew anything about the craft of writing, I thought Mary Higgins Clark was a good writer I thought she wrote nice, clean mysteries Then I learned how writing works and I realized the difference between cheap, supermarket novels, and something worth reading Shame on me for forgetting that and wasting time on Ms Clark Not to say that I m a literary snob, because I m not I love supermarket paperbacks But they have to be fun Her books are NOT fun They re plodding and dull an [...]


    26. 4.75 Me ha encantado Es un libro muy din mico que se lee muy r pido gracias a sus cap tulos cortos y trama llena de acci n No paran de pasar cosas, te engancha, entretiene y no puedes soltarlo hadta acabarlo Le coges cari o a los personajes y es una historia que se queda contigo Muy recomendable
