Publisher's Summary

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 nation's first deputy sheriffs. She's proven that she can't 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 Gun introduced Constance Kopp and her charming and steadfast sisters to an army of enthusiastic listeners. Those listeners will be thrilled by this second installment - also ripped from the headlines - in the romping, wildly listenable life of a woman forging her own path, tackling crime and nefarious criminals along the way.

Critic Reviews

"Narrator Christina Moore continues to shine in the Kopp Sisters series.... Moore captures Constance perfectly--at times vulnerable but more often a strong and determined turn-of-the-century woman who feels she's finally found her calling. In addition to Constance, Moore expertly gives voice to a cast of secondary characters, including men and people with distinctive accents, making each one a believable individual." ( AudioFile)

Fantastic Series Continues

Stewart has used her unerring research skills and sharp wit to elevate the standard of historic fiction to an entirely new level. I loved book one in the series, Girl Waits With Gun, and was hoping that book two would be up to the challenge. To me, Lady Cop Makes Trouble is even better than the first book. There is more action, so much detail and such a high level of historic accuracy that reading feels like traveling in a time machine.

The plot is taken from the headlines of the time and in doing so lends a feeling of authenticity to this historic fiction detective book. Stewart opens a window into the early 1900s and beckons the reader to climb through and into another world. Descriptive, detailed, exacting dialogue and excellent character interaction and development all converge to create an enthralling book.

Moore's narration is spot on once again. Her use of pauses, sighs and her precise tone and timing really captures the no nonsense feel of the era and the characters she is voicing. Her skilled delivery makes listening a pleasure.

I really am looking forward to book three--I can't wait to see what happens next. Recommended if you enjoy historic fiction with quirky characters, some funny bits and a slice of life from another era. I loved it.

Excellent!

Highly recommend! What a great story. I'm hoping for a third in the series as I am left with only just a few developments I'd love to see :) , but for the most part - everything was wrapped up very nicely! Would be great for a book club choice as there is mystery wrapped up in the plot. Exceptional narrator! Will be seeking out more of both ladies' works. Thank you!

The narrator makes a huge difference!

What made the experience of listening to Lady Cop Makes Trouble the most enjoyable?

The combination of smart, witty writing and a narrator who performs as if he/she were right there, makes this an incredibly positive experience!

What other book might you compare Lady Cop Makes Trouble to and why?

Girl Waits With Gun -- the first book in this series (and hopefully there will be a ton more) is brilliant for the incredible writing and the terrific narration.

Which character – as performed by Christina Moore – was your favorite?

All were terrific -- Constance, the Sheriff and Fleurette.

Any additional comments?

Sometimes I wonder who chooses the narrators. Sometimes I wonder who actually pays them to do such a poor job. In this case, Christina Moore is among the best I've ever heard. She invests herself in each character, she doesn't pause after every fifth word and the flow is marvelous. Kudos, Christina!!

Great Story Telling!

I read this book before listening to the audio version. The narrator brought it to life for me! It felt like a completely different story. Christina Moore is so talented and consistent with all the different voices, accents, and emotions! Thank you Amy Stewart for a book that is not riddled with bad language...a rare thing today! Amy's writing style is what attracted me to her first book, Girl Waits With Gun. One of the best writers I've come across! You can't have good narration without good writing to narrate! Amy and Christina are a fantastic combo!! I'll be reading or listening to all the Kopp Sisters books!

A new favorite!

This series quickly became a new favorite of mine, the only disappointment is that there isn't another ready to pick up now that I'm done with the first two! Christina Moore's narration is superb, she does an excellent job bringing the characters to life.

Another winner for Amy Stewart!

Any additional comments?

I borrowed the first book - "Girl Waits With Gun" from my library. Enjoyed it very much, and looked forward to this one being released. I was not disappointed. I found the story interesting and engaging, and especially liked that there is nothing offensive in the story. No foul language, no sexual situations. Highly recommend!

Excellent read and excellent research!

historical-fiction, historical-places-events, historical-research, action-adventure, law-enforcement, family-dynamics

What do Amy Stewart and Clive Cussler have in common? Great storytelling and impeccable historical research! As a mystery I really enjoyed it, as law enforcement history it is excellent well done, and as a window into the lives of women a hundred years ago it is an education for the uneducated. I totally enjoyed it!
Christina Moore does a great job as narrator, and really adds positive things to the story!

Continuation of Girl Waits With Gun

This book picks up where Girl Waits with Gun left off. Without adding any spoilers I can say that Constance causes a situation through an error of her own doing. One of the reasons I love this series is that it is believable. Ms. Stewart doesn't overly glamourize Constance. While I'm sure it's not 100% historically accurate, I can very much see most of the scenarios playing out. I like that Constance is a tall, sturdy, plain woman and that she makes mistakes but has such drive to remedy them and bring justice. I love her work ethic. I love that she never plays victim to anyone and is not only self-reliant but is in fact, a force to be reckoned with. I've already started the last in the series, Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions and wish that there were more.

Even when I'm not driving

i am powering through this series and already dreading what to do once I finish the third book. Great look at life for lady detective in the 1910s and 20s
