A fun romp through 1915 NJ and NYC. I really enjoy this historical fiction series. The main character is based on Constance Kopp, the first deputy sheriff in the country. ( )

The real-life Constance Kopp was the square peg in a world of round holes. She didn't fit in, and so she carved out her own space. The Kopp Sisters Series takes us on a fictionalized jaunt through her world.

Lady Cop Makes Trouble is a fun story that has us chasing down an escaped prisoner throughout New Jersey and New York. I love the way Amy Stewart captures the era. Little observations and details bring the setting to life, and the dialogue is perfection.

The plot is straight forward, without a lot of surprises, but the journey is totally enjoyable.

This is the second book in the series. While it can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend starting at the beginning for a better sense of Constance Kopp's personal life and backstory.

Book 5 is releasing soon, and I still need books 3 and 4. I have some catching up to do!

The magic Amy Stewart instilled in “Girl Waits with Gun,” the first novel in her Kopp Sisters series, remains in her second, “Lady Cop Makes Trouble” (2016). Oh, maybe it’s not quite the same magic. Her characters, so original and surprising in the first outing, are now familiar, and the plot lacks complexity. Even so, the second novel entertains from beginning to end.

Constance Kopp is now working for Sheriff Heath, but without a badge. The sheriff questions whether he is legally permitted to hire a female deputy in New Jersey in 1915. So Constance is made jail matron, in charge of female prisoners. When she is called to assist with a hospitalized male prisoner because she speaks German, she sees it as a break. Instead it is the prisoner, the Rev. Dr. Herman Albert von Matthesius, who gets a break, or rather makes a break. And he escapes while Constance is supposed to be watching him but briefly leaves his hospital room.

Now with her job on the line (as well as the sheriff's), not to mention any chance she might have of ever becoming a deputy, Constance is determined to track down Matthesius herself, never mind that the sheriff has ordered her back to the jail. So most of the novel involves her disobeying direct orders while staying a step ahead of the sheriff and his deputies in tracking down the escapee.

There are no murders here, although there is a killing in a subplot, and we are never entirely sure what Matthesius is accused of doing. (The novel is based loosely on actual events, and the crimes of the real Matthesius are unclear in the historical record.) Still there is plenty of action and plenty of suspense. Supporting characters — the sheriff’s unhappy wife, Constance’s older sister, Norma, with her passion for homing pigeons, and the theatrical younger sister, Fleurette (actually Constance’s daughter, although Fleurette doesn’t know it), fill out the story without slowing it down.

This is the sequel to "Girl Waits With Gun" and is just as much fun! Inspired by a real person and actual events, this is an enjoyable read. The author uses her imagination to describe the characters when she can't verify details, so fact and fiction blend to provide a page-turner. Just found out there is a third book, "Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions." I'm hooked - will be looking for that one! ( )

I love this series! Constance is now acting as matron at the women’s jail since the freeholders are reluctant to give a woman the badge and title of Deputy Sheriff. The Sheriff takes her with him to the hospital where one of his prisoner’s has been taken because he needs a German interpreter and on arrival there is an emergency from a train wreck and he’s called to help with bringing the wounded in. During the storm the lights go out and Constance was told to guard the prisoner’s door. In the darkness Herman von Matthesius manages to escape after faking his illness. She’s to blame. However, there’s the threat of the Sheriff being jailed because it is his prisoner that got away. The book is about the manhunt and the family life of both Constance’s family and Sheriff Heath's family and problems resulting from their jobs. ( )
