Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart- Feature and Review



Girl Waits with Gun (Kopp Sisters, #1)Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart is a 2015 Mariner Books publication (e book- library edition)

Constance Kopp is my kind of heroine!

Based on the real -life adventures of Constance Kopp, this first book in the Kopp Sisters series has Constance doing battle with the owner of a silk factory after his car collides with her horse and buggy.

Determined to force the man into paying restitution for the damage he caused, Constance slowly emerges from the isolated life she’s been living, becoming more embolden when her family is threatened.

Finally, Constance can face her past and embrace a new chapter in her life, which would help pave the way for women to have a career in law enforcement and proving herself to be an inspiration, while showing compassion and determination in seeing justice done.

Constance harbors some shocking secrets by 1914 standards, and so has retreated to a quiet farm life, living with her sisters. The accident proves to be a catalyst for Constance as she rises to the occasion after receiving threats and being blackmailed.

This is no shrinking violet! Constance is my hero, but all the sisters are distinctive, and play a huge part in how things play out.

This is very cool historical mystery, which moves along at a good steady clip, has charm and character, wonderful dialogue and a fair amount of action and adventure to round things out. I enjoyed every minute of it!!
