Lady Cop Makes Trouble
Lady Cop Makes Trouble | Amy Stewart
The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gun returns with another adventure featuring the fascinating, feisty, and unforgettable Kopp sisters. After besting (and arresting) a ruthless silk factory owner and his gang of thugs in Girl Waits with Gun, Constance Kopp became one of the nations first deputy sheriffs. She's proven that she cant be deterred, evaded, or outrun. But when the wiles of a German-speaking con man threaten her position and her hopes for this new life, and endanger the honorable Sheriff Heath, Constance may not be able to make things right.Lady Cop Makes Trouble sets Constance loose on the streets of New York City and New Jersey--tracking down victims, trailing leads, and making friends with girl reporters and lawyers at a hotel for women. Cheering her on, and goading her, are her sisters Norma and Fleurette--that is, when they aren't training pigeons for the war effort or fanning dreams of a life on the stage.Based on a true story, Girl Waits with Gunintroduced Constance Kopp and her charming and steadfast sisters to an army of enthusiastic readers. Those readers will be thrilled by this second installment--also ripped from the headlines--in the romping, wildly readable life of a woman forging her own path, tackling crime and nefarious criminals along the way.

Second book in the historical mystery of the Kopp sisters. Constance is the first female sheriff in the early 1900s until there is a problem with her deputization. She makes a mistake costing her the job she loves and getting a demotion. We follow her as she tries to make it right and gain her badge back. I liked this book, it was fast paced and rooted in history (as can be seen from newspapers of the time) with a dash of fun. Recommend 👍🏽

Such a delight to reunite with Constance, Norma, & Fleurette Kopp. Stewart does a wonderful job weaving the facts with the fiction, and I do enjoy reading her notes at the end. June #DoubleSpin complete! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My March TBR Jar pick is Lady Cop Makes Trouble! I loved Girl Waits With Gun and am looking forward to another adventure with Constance Kopp, one of the US's first female deputies! Though the series is fiction, Constance was a real person and these books are based on true stories from her life. She's a spitfire and the hero I want to read about right now. 😆

Tamra I wonder if I could stick to a TBR jar given I‘m such a mood reader. I really like the idea! 2y
valeriegeary @Tamra I'm only picking one book a month from it because I too am such a mood reader. So far it's been fun and I'm reading at least a few of my own books now. 😅 2y
Tamra @valeriegeary terrific monthly plan - I think I could manage it. 2y

Another good reading month! Lady Cop was what I would consider my most fun read, A Dry White Season made an impact, and She Said was great nonfiction. I also loved my two rereads this month, The Two Towers & Emily of New Moon. I haven‘t quite finished one of my #1001books choices for February and I might read another issue of Locke & Key yet tonight, but I‘m calling these my stats for the month.

I finished this book late last night and was going to wait to review until after our discussion today, but we‘re postponing a week. These are absolutely wonderfully fun historical fiction books with a great message. Constance is a strong character with realistic and interesting interactions between all of the characters. I enjoyed this one just as much as the first in the series and again read it in just a few days.

Another great romp with Constance Kopp! I actually enjoyed this book better than the first and I felt like it moved at a much faster pace. Fleurette was definitely less annoying in this book, but that‘s probably just because she‘s not in as much, haha. I definitely plan to pick up the next book!

In this sequel to Girl Waits With Gun, Constance Kopp is determined to earn a deputy‘s badge, but a con man escaping under her watch has Miss Kopp and Sheriff Heath on a wild goose chase to put him back behind bars before the sheriff is jailed in his place and Miss Kopp loses her job. Although this features less of the other Kopp sisters than the first book, I still enjoyed it. Fantastic writing and characterization. I‘m hooked on Constance!

I really enjoyed this second installment of the Kopp Sisters series. It‘s based on the real life exploits of Constance Kopp, one of the first female deputy sheriffs in the country. She was a real trailblazer, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

TorieStorieS I love this series too! The Audible versions are also great! 4y

The second Kopp Sisters book made a much-needed change of pace for me. I like Constance's narration and the author's note that explains how fact and fiction are blended in this book.

The question I had in the previous post turned out to have a satisfactory answer in the end. Constance is hard at work proving herself in this book and I admit by the end I was sympathetic to the Sheriff‘s exasperation! Definitely a leaner book than the first one, less backstory-heavy.

blurb

Ok, I can‘t be reading this right. So the old Italian lady says she shot the boarder, ran away on a trolley and then came back to the scene of the crime; but the cops have witnesses that the shot happened at the time she said she was on the trolley. Constance interviews her and discovers that she was trying to shoot her husband and hit the boarder by accident; she came back to the scene b/c if she was arrested she‘d be protected from her husband >

jfount > But this doesn‘t solve the timing problem at all?! It makes sense of the motivation for coming back but I don‘t see how it changes the timing at all? 4y

There is a plot involving the capturing of an escaped criminal. However, the part I liked about this book were seeing Sheriff Heath a little more flawed. In the first book he seemed the perfect sheriff. Here we see that he has flaws and can be insensitive. Enjoyed watching Fluerrette continue to come into her own. Because of a charade that was set up in the first novel, Constance cannot discipline her as she likes,creating conflict for Constance.

Stanley Cup finals and a book. Who says you can‘t have it all? 🏒 📚 📖

Soubhiville Yay! I‘d be happy for either team to win. Who are you cheering for? 4y
LisaJo @Soubhiville So neither one of these teams are “my team“. Sort of rooting for Vegas because they‘re new and they made it to the finals for the first season. Plus Fluery. However, if they can‘t pick up those rebounds and help out their goalie a little bit, they are going to lose. Just excited for some good hockey. To be honest, I would be excited for bad hockey team. 4y
Soubhiville Lol, I feel the same, pretty much. My husband is the real fan in our house, and he‘s a Devils fan. But he‘s rooting Caps because they haven‘t gotten a cup in a long time. It‘d be cool for Vegas to win their first year though! I‘m just hoping for some good games. 4y

1. Book club read.
2. My plans today should be to read the tag book. It‘s due on Sunday. I have 200 pages left. However, I only feel like watching down my DVR pile. It‘s rainy. It‘s humid. Tropical storm is on its way.
3. Hotdogs. It sounds so pedestrian, but I enjoy a good grilled hotdog with some relish and mustard. That will not be happening today because it‘s raining.

I did a Google search for "Constance Kopp" just now, and one of the links brought me to this website, which I was previously unaware of. The link I'm posting below corresponds with the screenshot above... with links to historical topics and figures (good and nefarious) who have been in the news. ? If you're a fan of true crime or historical fiction, this is an amazing resource!

1. Tagged book. Second in a series. Reading it for my book group. We read the first one last year and really enjoyed it.
2. We always had books in the house, but the Hardy Boy/Nancy Drew TV series made me want to read the books. I was hooked on books and the library from there on out.
3. Morning before work/evening after work.
4. Recently - characters in Desperation Road. In the past Sherlock Holmes, Jane Eyre, the DeWinters, Scout.

Another delightful and exciting installment for Constance Kopp!
I enjoy the dynamic between Constance and her sisters a great deal. It is written to be realistically supportive and nit-picky which those of us with siblings can relate to.
I appreciated hearing more about Mrs. Heath as well, allowing her character to become more three dimensional.
