‘The feisty, fiery Kopp sisters are back in another unforgettable romp’
This novel is based on real-life historical information from the First World War. It is from a time when it wasn’t seen as correct for a woman to be doing a “man’s job” when it comes to solving crimes. Amy Stewart cleverly engages her reader and takes us back to a time when things were so much more different to how they are now. This is a fun, easy read, full of entertainment giving plenty of insight into that time period.
Deputy Sheriff Constance Kopp is our heroine here. She is one well-loved matriarch and nothing is going to happen on her watch. Constance begins witness a lot of young women being sent to prison over suspicious charges. There is a classic case of sexism in the works here and our leading lady will do her best to try and sniff it out. Although, how will Constance act when her own sister, Fleurette, starts causing mischief?!
Amy Stewart has definitely done her research. You can feel the passion of her love for history in her writing and she has created some excellent characters as a result. To see a female lead in a book like this, and the fact that there was a historical figure like this during that time, certainly hits the spot and makes me feel empowering as a woman.
Although there are no typical fight-scenes or high speed car chases, there is plenty of adventure and it is enjoyable to follow Constance on her journey. There are many storylines to keep you buzzing and quick-wit to humour you along the way. This is the third in a series of books based on the ‘Kopp Sisters’, the first two of which I have not read but will now be adding to my shelf of books to read.
Thank you to Adam Howard at Scribe for sending me a copy of this book in return for an honest review. I enjoyed reading it, especially as this isn’t my usual kind of book!
