    "Insane is such a mean word. I prefer mentally creative." (Unknown)Constance Kopp, the first female deputy sheriff in Hackensack, has one challenging assignment. She and Deputy Morris must accompany two individuals to the local insane asylum. The male prisoner sits in the front seat of the vehicle reacting with wide eyes as the rain storm lets out its fury. The female patient must be picked up at her home after a judge has committed her. As they ...

    Another excellent book about Constance Kopp, a ground breaking woman deputy in Hackensack, NJ at the beginning of the 20th century. Using the historical record about the real Miss Kopp, Amy Stewart continues a fiction series aiming to flesh out Deputy Kopp and draws her readers in with every book. Deputy Kopp is starting to feel like she knows what she is doing and is expanding her duties into ways that she feels is helping women who need help. T...

    I love this unique and clever series loosely based on the real Constance Kopp. However in this installment, there are numerous plot lines, and I struggled to follow some of them and was not particularly intrigued by others. The story is set during 1916 which is an election year for Kopp’s boss Sheriff Heath, and I felt the portion of the story devoted to the election was the least interesting and the most detailed. Every series has its ups and ...

    In book four, Constance is busy kicking butt and taking names as usual! One evening she's sent with Deputy Morris to accompany two people being committed to the Morris Plains Asylum.  She arrives at the home of Anna Kayser, who is being committed to the asylum by her husband and physician, and immediately feels that something isn't right; Anna is clearly not insane and Constance's instincts tell her that she needs to look deeper into the woman's...

    I was really sad when this book was over because I really wanted to know what is going to happen next to the Kopp sisters, Constance, Norma and Fleurette. They were at such an interesting turning point in their lives and I can't wait to see what happens next. What makes this such an interesting series is that it is based on a real life character who was the first female deputy sheriff in New Jersey in 1916 before women had the right to vote. They...

    I loved this spirited novel, the fourth in what must be an excellent adventure of a series featuring female cop, Constance Kopp and her sisters as well as a colorful cast of characters. This historically accurate series is great for fans of Maisie Dobbs and Stephanie Plum - I love the fearless female who stops at nothing to solve the mystery and overcomes all odds to be the heroine of her own story. Amy Stewart is a best-selling author (The Drunk...

    Don't expect any murders in this series, let alone mysteries. The only mystery in this book is who will win the election for a congressional seat and for sheriff of Bergen County, New Jersey. We already know that Woodrow Wilson will win his bid for reelection as President with a campaign slogan of "He kept us out of war." I love this series of historical novels about a woman who becomes a sheriff's deputy before women even had the vote nationally...

    "Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit" is a solid, energetic addition to the Kopp Sisters series and I enjoyed it as much as, if not more than, the others. It was well worth my time to read and kept me interested and involved from beginning to end.Without giving too much away (making the journey through the book and finding out what happens on your own is too much fun to spoil!), the main emphasis in this installment is on the politics involved. Constance (...

    The newest addition to The Kopp Sisters historical fiction series, Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit by Amy Stewart (book 4 of the series) is delight to read and a must have for fans of the ballsy character Constance Kopp and her independently minded sisters. I have read all four of the books in the series and enjoyed each one. I would recommend reading the first book in the series, Girl Waits With Gun, to learn more about the characters, the background ...

    At 6 ft tall, Constance Kopp is quite a force! Based on the life of the first lady deputy, "Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit" is the latest novel in the Kopp Sisters series, taking place in NJ during the elections of 1916.I have followed the Kopp sister's adventures since the first novel "Girl Waits with Gun" and love how historically accurate its depiction is. The three Kopp sisters have become a part of me and their stories are beyond impressive, as w...

    I truly enjoy the fourth installment of the Kopp Sisters series. The fourth book is just as enjoyable as its predecessors. "Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit" literally is not a mystery novel but more about what it was like to be a female deputy in a male-dominated environment in the early 1900s. Constance Kopp, the protagonist, was equipped with strength, intelligence, compassion, and many other excellent qualities that made her a top notch officer yet ...

    ★ ★ ★ 1/2 (rounded up)This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.--- So it's been roughly a year for Constance Kopp working as the ladies' matron for the Bergon County Jail. In that time she has investigated crimes, tracked down murderers, sought justice for women of all walks of life, and put her life on the line more than a few times. She's gained nationwide notoriety, and caused more than a few scandals at home. About now, some...

    Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.In MISS KOPP JUST WON'T QUIT (September 11th 2018 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), Constance Kopp's job as a deputy is on the line as she is dragged through the wringer during the campaign for the new sheriff. The political infighting is fierce, and Constance finds herself to be the target of a lot of the mudslinging. The one man who is running for the sheriff has made it clear that he doesn't like ...

    I can't remember exactly how old Constance and her sister, Norma are in this series, though I think it is in the same ballpark as my own and sometimes I'm in awe of what they had to go through being single women, just like me, in only the last century.They couldn't vote. The two sisters of "a certain age" still single, were considered spinsters, definitely not a grand term. Younger women often had to fight in courts just to leave their parent's h...

    Another enjoyable "Miss Kopp" saga. This is number 4 in the series, and many of the same characters from the earlier books return - sisters Norma and Fleurette, Sheriff Heath, and a few of the women prisoners under Constance's care in her role as New Jersey's first female deputy sheriff. Constance Kopp tells her own story with wit, honesty, and determination. What elevates this entertaining series is author Amy Stewart's brilliant concept and her...

    I first read about Constance Kopp, the first woman deputy, in Girl Waits with Gun for my book club. I had not gotten to the second and third books in the series, but when I had the opportunity to read the 4th one as an ARC from NetGalley, I jumped at the chance. This installment is centered around Constance's duties at the jail, and her program to get girls on probation that had not done serious crimes. In the course of her job, she and a deputy ...

    I was over the moon excited to receive an advance readers copy of Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit and submit an early review. I've read through the past four years with the Kopp Sisters, and it is true that these tenacious, intelligent and quirky women just won't quit breaking the social norms of their day in order to be true to themselves. And the books don't ever quit entertaining me. I always get happily lost in them.The other thing that I love abou...

    I have eagerly awaited this third Kopp Sisters novel, and was super excited to get an advanced copy. Constance Kopp was the first female deputy police officer in New Jersey, and Miss Kopp Won’t Quit was a real headline in the papers at the time.I had a harder time getting into this - lots of action, but the election and potential of Sheriff Heath and Constance losing their jobs made me dread reading. At about 50% it really picked up and I had a...

    4.5 stars. This latest installment of the Kopp Sisters pulled from an actual Headline of the time, was another interesting fact filled thought provoking look at the 1910's and how society was changing to a more modern sensibility, especially in regards to women's roles. This time the author shed some light on the subject 0f women and mental health, marital rights and the political climate at the local level just before WWI. It is sobering to see ...

    Ah, the persistent, witty, determined "always get her man" Deputy Constance Kopp. Having to prove herself over and over again to her male colleagues, the press, and multiple critics, she still pushes on. This time she is tackling a case of a housewife whose husband has her committed to an insane asylum every time he wants some breathing room at home for his extracurricular activities. Feeling that this woman has been treated unjustly she tries to...

    Much of this fourth novel following a fictionalized Constance Kopp focuses on the election of 1916 in which the results could have a big influence on Deputy Sheriff Kopp's future. If Stewart hadn't added a note at the end explaining the parallels between her novel and the real 1916 election, I would have sworn she took the 2016 election (how coincidental is THAT?) and used it as her foundation. As it is, there are some fabulous quotes and dialogu...

    I received an e-ARC from the publisher.The fourth book in the Kopp sisters mystery series does not disappoint! This time our intrepid Constance deals with a runaway lunatic, a woman committed to an asylum by her husband for no apparent reason, Sheriff Heath's run for Senator, and the local sheriff's race to replace her boss. Will it be John Courter, her sworn enemy who doesn't approve of Constance's job with the jail? Or will it be an unknown per...

    I savored it as long as I could... reading slowly...re-reading bits. I didn't want it to end. This is an amazing series and I'm so lucky to be part of the fan club and get an ARC. I love the Kopp sisters. Deputy Kopp takes it upon herself to investigate a woman's circumstance who she was instructed to transport to the mental institution. Things are not very kosher and of course our hero duty sniffs that out right away. WWI is brewing and this is ...

    I feel like the intensity in the series ramps up in this book. The stakes for Constance's main prisoner are higher (involuntary commitment to an insane asylum for an unspecified amount of time by her husband), the elections are in full swing (for Sheriff and for Congress), and in the background, the war is starting to show a larger impact. Unfortunately, Constance just cannot keep out of the newspapers, and the political implications of her appoi...

    What is most interesting is that this is a fictional account of a true story based on the life of Constance Kopp and her two sisters in approx. 1916. Constance was hired as the first female deputy sheriff in Hackensack, NJ and the book takes place during the election campaign year for a new sheriff. As you would imagine, life was not easy for the female deputy, especially one more interested in justice than politics. I find some historical novels...

    Another great Kopp sister story! I love that this series is rooted in historical facts and headlines (check the notes and sources section at the end of the book if you don’t believe me). When you take that historical foundation and add the appropriate level of sass and creativity like Amy Stewart does to the characters you end up with a book you can’t put down! I’m always rooting for Constance in whatever situation, and I’ll always be gra...

    1970-01-01
    This, fourth book in a series, doesn’t really have a mystery, but does reflect the difficulties of working women in untraditional jobs (Constance Kopp) and how the good old boy political system defames and punishes those who really try to do good. Not much seems to have changed in these times except that women now have the vote. But things are about to change! World War I is on the horizon. Women will get the vote in 1920. And I can’t wait to...

    I have loved Miss Kopp and her lady deputy adventures since the very beginning. The fourth installment is just as grabbing as the first, it’s characters so well developed and enjoyable. It left us with the possibility of a continuance, but this novel felt very finite. I truly hope this isn’t the last of the Kopp sisters. With WWI brewing I think Constance, Norma, and Fleurette would be the perfect heroines to lead the female fight.

    An excellent addition to the Kopp sister series. Constance Kopp and her sisters are such fascinating characters and Stewart does an excellent job of bringing them to life in this book. Constance's experiences as the first female deputy sheriff in the country bring her many troubles and in Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit Stewart presents the latest issues that my favorite female deputy sheriff has to deal with. Based on real women (which makes this even...
