I’ve been really interested in reading this series about three brothers (or actually two brothers and a widowed brother in law) who are lawyers in Manhattan. This one had a summery touch with being set in Martha’s Vineyard. Finn had updated the will for his neighbor in Martha’s Vineyard as a favor and now finds himself reading the will to their son and daughter. A daughter who is a famous Broadway actress and who was also badly injured during the accident that claimed the life of her parents.
I often find myself thinking the stories by Ms. Proby fall a little in the sweet and uncomplicated category. ALL THE WAY is very much like that. This was a charming story, really, but the low angst can also be a little boring.
Finn and London as characters were the best part of the story. They’re both mature, interesting adults. They’re both successful and have built the lives they wanted in terms of their careers. Both have money and accomplishments. I really liked seeing that because there’s too much of the younger or just plain immature characters around. This is also the thing that will keep me reading the series because I want to read more of it and I loved the glimpses of Finn’s family.
That being said, the plot was lackluster for me. There’s a tiny bit of suspense that so easy to figure out and it’s also non-existent for most of the book until we get to the very end. By then, I was expecting at least some danger to keep my attention. But it’s all very easy to resolve and I was a bit dissatisfied with it.
Overall, though, I know I’ve pointed out some bad things but I did enjoy reading this story. Like I said, it’s packed full of charm and family. I loved the Cavanaugh’s and I do want to see more of them. If you like reading about mature characters, definitely keep your eye out for this one.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
