North Jersey’s girls with guns return in Amy Stewart’s third Kopp sisters novel

Like the irrepressible Crawley girls of “Downton Abbey,” New Jersey’s own Kopp sisters had three very large and very different personalities. As women navigating their way through the 1910s and 1920s, they also had to work hard to shatter Victorian notions of womanhood. And did they ever. One of the sisters, Constance Kopp, even was named a deputy Bergen County sheriff, one of the first American women to hold that rank.
Ridgewood NJ, Save the date! Amy Stewart–along with audiobook reader Christina Moore–return on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 7pm to present the new Kopp Sisters book, Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions. Bookends will have all 3 books for sale and signing.
Amy Stewart is the author of nine books, including four New York Times bestsellers. She lives in Eureka, California, with her husband Scott Brown, who is a rare book dealer. They own a bookstore called Eureka Books, which is housed in a classic nineteenth-century Victorian building that Amy very much hopes is haunted.
Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is the much-anticipated third Kopp Sisters novel, following the true story of Constance Kopp, one of America’s first female deputy sheriffs, and her two remarkable sisters.

Ridgewood NJ, The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gunreturns with another adventure featuring the fascinating, feisty, and unforgettable Kopp sisters.
In 1915, lady cops were not expected to chase down fugitives on the streets of New York City. But Constance Kopp never did what anyone expected.
Constance Kopp and her sisters aren’t going to be living a quiet life anymore. They made the news by fighting back against a ruthless silk factory owner and his gang of thugs. And after Bergen County’s Sheriff Heath sees Constance in action, he appoints her as one of the nation’s first female deputies. He knows she’s a powerful addition to his force, and she knows she can do the job, but when the wiles of a German-speaking con man threaten her position and her hopes for this new life—and risk the honorable sheriff’s being thrown in his own jail—Constance is forced to prove herself again.
Lady Cop Makes Trouble sets Constance loose on the streets of New York City and New Jersey. Even as she tracks her fugitive, she’s also tested by other cases—helping runaway girls taken in by unscrupulous men and sorting out why an old woman is taking the fall for a murder she couldn’t have committed. Cheering her on are her sisters Norma and Fleurette—that is, when they aren’t, respectively, training pigeons for the war effort or fanning dreams of a life on the stage.
Based on the Kopp sisters’ real-life adventures, Girl Waits with Gun introduced the sensational lives of Constance Kopp and her unconventional sisters to an army of enthusiastic readers. This second installment, also based on their true story, takes us further into the romping, riveting story of a woman who defied expectations, forged her own path, and tackled crime—and nefarious criminals!—along the way.
