Julie | 3 comments Do you need to have read the prior Alvirah and Willy books before reading All By Myself, Alone? Or can it be a stand-alone novel? I see it's listed as book 11 in the "Alvirah and Willy" series. Thank you!

Mary Ann (mahofacre) | 394 comments Try reading what others say about the book. Some may have better insight if they have read all of the series or feel like they missed something by starting later. I haven't read this book or the series, but I read a lot of other books that are series and know that some can be read stand alone and others make more sense if read in order.

Mary Ann (mahofacre) | 394 comments From what others said, the main characters are on an ocean liner to celebrate their anniversary and since there are 97 characters in 300 pages it probably can be read alone.

I read it first without reading the rest of the series. I think it should be fine.

97 characters? There is no way there is 97 characters in that book!!!

Julie | 3 comments Thank you, Kirsten, for letting me know what you think about reading All By Myself, Alone as a stand-alone novel. Wasn't sure if reading the "Alvirah and Willy" books out of order would give away crucial plots and villains, thus spoiling the enjoyment of solving the mystery. :)
