The saga of the Kopp Sisters continues with Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions. This time Constance takes on the even for the time ridiculous laws regarding what women can and cannot do for the sake of their virtue. Constance does not find this to be fair and works hard for her own equality and the equality of the women she encounters both in and out of the prison she has been put in charge of. Incredible historical fiction (based on actual people) for fans of Miss Fisher's Mysteries.
“Constance Kopp is back, solving mysteries and making headlines! Deputy Kopp is a heroine of her day and continues to inspire today. Whether assisting young girls in finding their footing on a law-abiding path, using her voice to stand up for the voiceless, or fighting crime alongside her all-male counterparts, Constance Kopp is breaking with traditional female roles and navigating sometimes-stormy waters with grace, dignity, and a bit of humor. What does a feminist look like? This is what a feminist looks like!”
— Donna McFadden, Wellington Square Bookshop, Exton, PA
The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gun and Lady Cop Makes Trouble continues her extraordinary journey into the lives of the fabulous Kopp sisters.

“Stewart has another winner on her hands.”—Suspense Magazine
Constance Kopp is back—with a badge and a taste for justice. She has finally earned her deputy sheriff’s badge and is ready to tackle a new kind of case: defending independent young women brought into the Hackensack jail on dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. Such were the laws—and morals—of 1916. Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and support these women when no one else will. But it’s her sister Fleurette—who runs away from their sleepy farm to join the glamorous world of vaudeville—who puts Constance’s beliefs to the test. Is there a wayward girl in her own family? Set against the backdrop of World War I and drawn from the true story of the Kopp sisters, Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is a spirited, page-turning story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.
“Readers will eagerly await the opportunity to spend more time among the fearless and funny Kopp sisters.”—Book Reporter

"Perfect for book groups."—Booklist
"Constance's ability to hold her own in male-dominated investigations and courtrooms, as well as her determination to present the facts, makes her a welcome 'vision of an entirely different kind of woman,' hopefully with more tales to come. Lively and admirable female characters emboldened by their circumstances, impeccably realized and given new life by Stewart."—Kirkus
"The cases here are based on the experiences of real women, a technique that Stewart has employed in previous volumes. Collectively, the story lines intersect to create an intriguing window into women's rights and the social mores that women challenged on the eve of World War I. VERDICT A lovely addition for series fans and aficionados of historical fiction."—Library Journal
"Stewart’s third novel in her clever and original Kopp Sisters series continues the thorn adventures of Constance Kopp."—Publishers Weekly
