Off the Record by Elizabeth White is about Judge Laurel Kincaid. She is running for a judge position in Alabama. She is young and hopes to be able to be able to make a difference in the court system. Things get complicated when Cole comes to cover the story for a New York newspaper. They knew each other in college but have not seen each other for eight years. This is an interesting love story that makes you want to keep reading, even though parts of it are farfetched and unbelievable. The plot did include some unexpected twists and turns. This book by White did not have the humor that I found in her other books Fireworks and Fair Game.
