"LADY COP MAKES TROUBLE takes readers on a lively chase through a lost world. It’s a colorful and inventive adventure tale that also contains a serious message at its core about the importance of meaningful work to women’s identities and, in some cases, survival." - Maureen Corrigan, Washington Post
"Whether Constance is tackling a criminal 'in what had to be the most undignified position a woman had ever been seen in on the streets of Brooklyn' or pouring punch in a theater lobby for Fleurette’s Christmas pageant, her days and nights come vividly to life. And although the real crimes are solved by the end of the novel, Stewart leaves the reader wondering about one mystery still developing unsolved: the relationship between Constance and her married boss, Heath...Readers will just have to wait — impatiently, no doubt — for book No. 3." - Boston Globe
"In the long-awaited sequel to Girl Waits With Gun, Constance has to take matters into her own hands. Lady Cop Makes Trouble, based on actual events, is another irresistible madcap adventure featuring the Kopp sisters." - PopSugar
"Amy Stewart (Girl Waits with Gun) continues the fictional adventures of Miss Constance Kopp in LADY COP MAKES TROUBLE. Constance is based on a real woman who, just prior to World War I, became a deputy sheriff in New Jersey, one of the first of her kind in the country. And yes, she does make trouble. Escaped convicts don’t stand a chance against this adventurous woman, as Stewart crafts a heady brew of mystery and action in a fast-moving, craftily written novel that’s fueled by actual news headlines of the day." - BookPage
"It’s 'True Grit,' New York style. Stewart (“Girl Waits With Gun”) delivers the second novel in her series based on the real-life antics of Constance Kopp, one of the few female deputy sheriffs who lived 100 years ago. With encouragement from her two sisters, Constance tracks a German con man through the streets of the Big Apple. The book’s title is inspired by several actual newspaper headlines of the time about the small number of women who worked in law enforcement." - New York Post
"Constance Kopp is one of the most fascinating characters in recent mystery fiction. The fact that Stewart bases her on a real person and uses real events in her plots make Constance even more fascinating....Lady Cop Makes Trouble is one of the best mystery novels of the year: wonderful and very entertaining characters based on meticulous research, understated humor, and an accurate snapshot of the times just prior to America’s entry in WWI. One could hunt for a downside to Amy Stewart’s series, but it would be a vain search. Kudos to Amy Stewart and Constance Kopp. May there be many more sequels to follow." - New York Journal of Books
"The second entry in Amy Stewart’s historical mystery series based on the real-life Kopp sisters is as compulsively readable and effortlessly enjoyable as the first....Stewart expertly plays imagination and research off of one another in a way that is a pleasure in itself...So bring on more of the Kopp sisters! I can’t wait to see what they get up to next." - Emerald City Book Review
"Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart was one of the most enjoyable literary surprises of 2015, and the sequel, Lady Cop Makes Trouble (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), pursues its clever premise. Based on the real-life Kopp sisters of Bergen County, New Jersey – and the career of Constance Kopp, one of America’s first female deputy sheriffs, in particular – this adventure finds Constance’s deputy sheriff status at stake when she tricked by a nefarious con man. The multiple crimes that Stewart weaves into her tale are one thing, but equally compelling are the lovingly rendered characters, including a shining cameo by William Carlos Williams." - Seattle Review of Books
"Constance Kopp’s real-life adventures as “New Jersey’s first lady deputy sheriff” again make savory grist for Stewart’s fictional mill (Girl Waits with Gun, 2015, etc.)….Smart, atmospheric fun, with enough loose ends left dangling to assure fans there will be more entries in this enjoyable series." - Kirkus Reviews
"The multiple players in the story provide wry situational humor and a backdrop for Kopp’s unique, forceful character, while Sheriff Heath's surprisingly supportive regard lends a hopeful relational perspective. Stewart adeptly introduces details of early twentieth-century life in Hackensack, New Jersey, a burgeoning city on the outskirts of New York, and timely concerns such as jail reform and women’s rights, rounding out this immensely satisfying mystery." - Booklist
"In this comic mystery set in 1915 and based on actual events, Constance Kopp, the first female deputy sheriff in Bergen County, N.J., is still packing a pistol and an attitude after her first crime-fighting adventures in Girl Waits with Gun. Stewart’s second volume in her Kopp Sisters Series is a clever, suspenseful, and funny tale of a formidable woman facing crime, politics, social stigma, all while nailing evildoers….Fans of the first Kopp Sisters novel will find another treat in this follow-up. " - Publishers Weekly
From the Inside Flap
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 is six feet tall, lives on a quiet farm with her two sisters, and yearns for fulfilling work. The Kopp sisters, though, aren t going to be living the quiet life anymore. They made the news 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 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 ripped from the headlines, 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.

perhaps because there was less of the charming Fluerette and the determined pigeon keeper, Norma. However, for the historian of this
era, Stewart presents a view seldom seen: women and jail.
Since Ms. Stewart was primarily a non-fiction writer prior to these two novels, I think the fault of these weaknesses of which I speak, should be directed at Ms. Stewart’s editor who should have picked up on them.All in all though, after I went back and reread the scenes and got myself straightened out, I found both books to be interesting and intriguing tales with a laugh or two thrown in along the way, and maybe other readers won’t notice the weaknesses that I perceive. When book three comes out I’ll probably buy it, because there are still a few things in the lives of the Kopp sisters that I’m interested in knowing about.
