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.

    In this latest episode our intrepid lady cop faces losing her job as her current Sheriff ends his three year time in office. Along the way Deputy Constance Kopp helps several women improve their lives especially one who is regularly committed to an asylum every time her husband wants to bring home another woman. Apparently this is based on a real case which is one of the things I love the most about this series. Constance and her sisters were rea...

    Constance Kopp loves her job as Deputy Sheriff and prison matron and is highly effective at chasing criminals and taking care of the female prisoners. She knows she's lucky that Sheriff Heath has some progressive ideas about prison reform and sees the value in having a female deputy. However, it's 1916 and an election year, Sheriff Heath's term is up and he will soon be replaced by either John Courter, a lawyer who dislikes Constance intensely or...

    3.5 starsAnother cute caper by the Kopp Sisters. This is book #4 in the series. This series started out based on a real story about Constance Kopp, first female deputy sheriff in Hackensack New Jersey. I believe now, into the fourth book, that maybe fiction has totally taken over. As we come to the end of Robert Heath's reign as Sheriff we are left with a less than fulfilling ending. Constance is up in the air as to what her future will be. The n...

    First Sentence: On the day I took Anna Kayser to the insane asylum, I was first obliged to catch a thief.Deputy Constance Kopp is a target of politicians who don't believe women belong on the police force. With her boss, Sheriff Heath, running for higher office, she is in a precarious position. Jumping into a river at night to save a prisoner who escaped from another officer is bad but becoming personally involved in the case of a wife whose husb...

    Miss Kopp Just Won’t Quit is the fourth book in the Kopp Sisters series by NYT best-selling American author, Amy Stewart. It’s 1916 and Deputy Constance Kopp has been in the job for over a year. She’s very satisfied with her position as Matron of Hackensack’s jail, looking after the female prisoners. She also finds her role as probation officer for certain wayward girls fulfilling, although she doesn’t hesitate when there’s more activ...

    I have come to greaty enjoy Amy Stewart’s extremely well-researched historical fiction series about kick-ass lady deputy Constance Kopp and her sisters during the era of World War I. They were real people, and the story is based on newspaper accounts and records of the time. The stories of the inmates were based real stories of people of this era. The election, the attacks on Miss Kopp and Sheriff Heath, who hired and stood by her, are all real...

    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...

    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 s...

    All the stars! This is one of my favorite series ever, and this is the best installment yet. Constance Kopp is one of the best characters out there and we get to see her in a somewhat different light in this book. In general I would describe the series as somewhat serious romps as Constance follows a case and has humorous interactions with her sisters, but there are also important and weighty reflections on issues women faced at this time in hist...

    Miss Kopp Keep ‘em coming, Amy! I couldn’t read this fast enough. Loved it all, and I’ve loved the whole series. Wonderful historical fiction that combines social issues of the day (some of which have persisted for the past 100 years) as well as a spunky, no-nonsense heroine — a woman well ahead of her time with respect to women’s rights and abilities. I’m crazy about Constance Kopp!I’m sure, from the way this one ends, that a #5 is...

    Four books in, the Kopp Sisters series is going strong! Constance Kopp is an independent, strong, career woman -- at a time when these were not considered desirable attributes for a female. She works as a deputy sheriff at the Hackensack jail, where she essentially does double duty, both capturing criminals and carrying out deputy funtions, and serving as the jail's matron for female inmates, whom she views as her charges.Both Sheriff Heath -- a ...

    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...

    This might be my favorite book I've read all year, and it's book FOUR in a series. That's unheard of. But, I love these books. The inter-dynamics between the three sisters, Constance, Norma and Fleurette continues to be a delight and also very sweet how they love and annoy each other. I'd love to live next door to these sisters and snoop on their conversations about pigeons and dresses and who ate all the roast beef. What I love about them, among...

    A truly fascinating historical-fiction/mystery series, based on real characters, locations, and events. Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit is every bit as good as the first three books. Highly Recommended to readers who enjoy history and mystery equally - without need of psychological contrivances or ploying plots; just straight forward, great writing of integrity featuring the fascination Constance Kopp and the early days of women deputies. FOUR **** His...

    A fun and light mystery even if it seems I did start with the 4th one in the series. So it was easy to follow regardless and can be read as a stand alone. I personally think this should have a lot more ratings then it currently does as its highly entertaining.I think I'll read more by this author.

    Thank you to the author, Amy Stewart and The Kopp Sisters Literary Society for an advance reading copy of this fourth novel in the series. This novel takes place in the Fall as the election for Sheriff and Congress looms closer. Sheriff Heath is term limited and is now running for Congress which leads to much stress for Constance Kopp, the first female Deputy in Hackensack, New Jersey. The men both running for Sheriff are not happy with the idea ...

    I hope this isn't the last one of these books, but if I follow the actual biographies of Constance Kopp and Sheriff Heath, I'm afraid it is. I so look forward to these episodes. It's ironic how what happens in a book of fiction parallels what is happening in real life.

    The fourth novel in the Miss Kopp series by Amy Stewart is a strange story. It is promoted as a mystery (all the series is), but it is hardly one. I mean, there is a mystery - not a very mysterious one - but that’s not the main plot. In fact there are a few threads running alongside each other and in the end they do all come together, but so late in the story that for the most part I kept wondering what was this story I was being told all about...

    I continue to love Constance Kopp. Her passion for saving Anna Kayser in this volume really connected for me, but it also made me happy as it revealed how much she's grown over the years and what a support system she's developed of determined women. I love all of them and the ways in which they have worked together over the last couple of books. Surprisingly, I also really enjoyed how Fleurette has grown since her adventure with May Ward. She's b...

    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...

    How come I never heard of The Kopp Sisters? Of all the years of browsing the bookstores, I still haven't heard of these books until my request was approved to read this. I'm mighty glad I read this book. I intend to read the previous 3 books before this one. Even though, it's a 4th book in the Kopp Sisters series, I was able to get the hang of everyday going on in this story with Constance Kopp. It can be a stand alone book in my opinion.This sto...

    Ms. Stewart, please keep writing these books. I laugh out loud by page 2 in each Kopp Sisters novel and feel like my life is a little more pleasant when I get buried in the lives of Constance, Norma & Fleurette. Personally, I'm hoping for a BBC-esque miniseries of these stories.

    MISS KOPP JUST WON’T QUIT is historical fiction, the latest in a series about Constance Kopp, a deputy sheriff in New Jersey at a time, 1916, that is still early enough to refer to her as “lady deputy sheriff” rather than just “deputy sheriff.” Most of the characters in this book really did exist, and most of what happens is based on actual events that occurred either to these characters or to someone there at that time.For these reason...
