Sidebar – Carsen Taite

Sidebar by Carsen TaiteAttorney West Fallon has promised a federal judge that she will take a year away from her career to clerk for him, she may even wear a suit. However when he is taken ill the plans change and she is forced to clerk for a different judge, something she hadn’t bargained on and certainly isn’t looking forward to.

Judge Camille Avery, newly appointed to the federal court is looking forward to her new role, however a complex murder case, unruly attorneys, broken rules and her attraction to West Fallon all add up to make her life miserable.

As the two women work together they offer each other something they crave. As their attraction grows so does their fear and insecurities. Is it possible to let go of the past for the sake of a chance of happiness?

I really enjoyed the book, it keeps you interested from start to finish. There are so many different threads to keeps you on your toes. I found myself rooting for West all the way through, hoping that she would eventually find the happiness she deserved.
