Publisher's Summary

The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gun and Lady Cop Makes Trouble continues her extraordinary journey into the real lives of the forgotten but fabulous Kopp sisters.

Deputy sheriff Constance Kopp is outraged to see young women brought into the Hackensack jail over dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. The strong-willed, patriotic Edna Heustis, who left home to work in a munitions factory, certainly doesn't belong behind bars. And 16-year-old runaway Minnie Davis, with few prospects and fewer friends, shouldn't be publicly shamed and packed off to a state-run reformatory. But such were the laws - and morals - of 1916.

Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and defend these women when no one else will. But it's her sister Fleurette who puts Constance's beliefs to the test and forces her to reckon with her own ideas of how a young woman should and shouldn't behave.

Against the backdrop of World War I, and drawn once again from the true story of the Kopp sisters, Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions is a spirited story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.

    "An Entirely Different Kind of Woman"

    This is the third book in Stewart's series about the real life Kopp sisters set in 1916 New Jersey. The first half of this book really focuses on the limited and controlled lives lived by women in pre-WWI America. At times this felt overly dark and discouraging. Historically Stewart offers an exacting and detailed view of the struggle women had, and how much Constance Kopp was breaking the mold with her job as deputy sheriff. To be honest, for me, this all felt drab and humorless. But, I stuck with it and I'm glad I did.

    Do not worry. Once Stewart sets this dour scene she returns in full force to the quirky humor, wry antics and almost Keystone Cops dashing around from the previous books. The interplay between Norma and Constance is sharp witted and funny. The stories of Vaudeville on the road, life on the farm and work at the jail are all perfectly developed and contrasted.

    I love how this series continues to remain absolutely grounded in the history and headlines of the time. The dialogue and characters were excellent. Moore's narration was good. Recommended if you love historic fiction strongly based in reality. A vibrant look at life long gone.
