    Baroness Troutbeck loves a challenge, so she jumps at the chance to be a visiting professor in America. But when she gets there, she finds she has a murder investigation on her hands. Can she persuade Robert Amiss to come to her aid?

    Kaye says: "A healthy laugh at American university life"

    Overall

    An interesting extension of previous Lady Troutbeck stories, with the majority of this novel taking place in the USA. The witty jibes on being Politically Correct in the world of American Academia are well done, as is the commentary on how Jack finds the local food.

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "Well written, challenging, empathetic"
    Overall

    I am often impressed with the talent Jodi Picoult displays for creating home scenes so vivid and realistic, they sound autobiographical. This is one of those stories. Perhaps just a little drawn out at times, I still found it difficult to put down (or rather, press stop!). One of her better ones, particularly for anyone who enjoyed My Sister's Keeprer.
