“If you like reading about mature characters, definitely keep your eye out for this one.  ”
~ Under the Covers

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.

Thanks for the review.


I do enjoy reading mature characters but I’ll pass on a lackluster story.
