About this ebook

Life after the war takes an unexpected turn for the Kopp sisters, but soon enough, they are putting their unique detective skills to use in new and daring ways. 

Winter 1919: Norma is summoned home from France, Constance is called back from Washington, and Fleurette puts her own plans on hold as the sisters rally around their recently widowed sister-in-law and her children. How are four women going to support themselves? 

A chance encounter offers Fleurette a solution: clandestine legal work for a former colleague of Constance’s. She becomes a “professional co-respondent,” posing as the “other woman” in divorce cases so that photographs can be entered as evidence to procure a divorce. While her late-night assignments are both exciting and lucrative, they put her on a collision course with her own family, who would never approve of such disreputable work. One client’s suspicious behavior leads Fleurette to uncover a much larger crime, putting her in the unlikely position of amateur detective.  

In Miss Kopp Investigates, Amy Stewart once again brilliantly captures the women of this era—their ambitions for the future as well as the ties that bind—at the start of a promising new decade.

cozy-mystery, family-dynamics, friendship, law-enforcement, lawyers, swindles, historical-figures, historical-novel, historical-places-events, historical-research, situational-humor, verbal-humor, post WW1, New Jersey***** The war is over and the Kopp sisters find themselves giving up their dream futures and returning home to New Jersey because their only brother has suddenly died. Turns out that his finances were pretty dire because of loyalty to his employer. They make housing arrangement based on the children and that the widow is expecting another. Then Fleurette comes down with strep, is ill for some time, and lost her singing voice. Norma rules their world, Constance winds up as a store detective, and Fleurette comes upon a better paying position but the older sisters pitch such a fit that she moves out and away (but still in New Jersey). Then thing really get interesting! Another great read! Loved it! And I'm glad for the reality comparison at the end, too. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/Mariner Books via NetGalley. Thank you!
