"The best-selling author of Girl Waits with Gun and Lady Cop Makes Trouble continues her extraordinary journey into the real lives of the forgotten but fabulous Kopp sisters... Deputy sheriff Constance Kopp is outraged to see young women brought into the Hackensack jail over dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. The strong-willed, patriotic Edna Heustis, who left home to work in a munitions factory, certainly doesn't belong behind bars. And sixteen-year-old runaway Minnie Davis, with few prospects and fewer friends, shouldn't be publicly shamed and packed off to a state-run reformatory. But such were the laws--and morals--of 1916. Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and defend these women when no one else will. But it's her sister Fleurette who puts Constance's beliefs to the test and forces her to reckon with her own ideas of how a young woman should and shouldn't behave. Against the backdrop of World War I, and drawn once again 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"--… (lisätietoja)

This is very different than the first two books in the series. It's much less action-packed, for one. Whereas there is an active plot of a bad guy to be caught in the first two books, in this one, the antagonist is less a person and more the idea that women could not be trusted to be independent. There's a number of plot threads about girls who get arrested for waywardness (apparently this was a thing and hoo boy, the flames that were on the side of my face to learn about that), often at the behest of their parents, or illegal cohabitation, or similar. Stewart even spent a good portion of the book describing a government-run reformatory for girls.

HOLY SHIT am I glad to live in 2017 because my mother would have probably sent me off to that place post haste if such a place existed back when I was a kid. I was a mouthy teenager with a stubborn, independent streak and she had no clue what to do with me.

Fleurette also got a nice subplot of her own, and it was nice to see her in a more adult light.
Odd though, while I didn't find Fleurette annoying in this book, Norma made me want to scream at times. Though reading some interviews, that seems to have been her personality.

I really hope I don't have to wait too long for the next book. I love the Kopp sisters! ( )

Another great installment in this series. Constance Kopp, who is based on a real person, is a likable, strong character. Her sisters also are well fleshed out in this third book. This story takes place right before World War II and involves runaway girls and morality laws. A historical fiction/mystery at its finest. ( )

As in my scale below, a perfectly decent read, but my least favourite of these books thus far. The stakes seemed awfully low. The author introduced situations that were posed on the precipice of excitement, and then very little happened of interest. I think the marketing of this series as somehow mystery/suspense/thriller (at least that's the section of the bookstore I see them in, plus that's the general appearance of the cover) is undermining their effectiveness, as I'm judging them as mystery/suspense/thriller instead of as a gentle domestic drama of three sisters.

So go in with the right mindset, and you might enjoy it more. But I kept expecting the narrative to swerve into something dramatic, and that failed to happen. (I suspect if the author gave herself freedom to extrapolate even more, it would solve the problem—she made May Ward a lush without any evidence to support it, surely she could have tossed in an actual white slavery ring rather than several non-rings)!

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). ( )

As the first female deputy sheriff in Bergen County, New Jersey, Constance Kopp has responsibility for the female prisoners. And she thinks there are way too many of them. In Amy Stewart's “Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions” (2017), the third novel in this excellent series, Constance is troubled by the fact that a runaway boy is just a runaway boy, while a runaway girl is a criminal, or at least treated as one.

Her prisoners include Edna, a young woman who believes the United States will be pulled into the war in Europe (the year is 1916) and, wanting to make a contribution, runs away from home to work in a munitions plant. Minnie, 16, runs away from home with a man who promises to marry her but doesn't. Her parents don't want her back, and now she faces years in a reformatory until she reaches adulthood.

Constance must really put her convictions to the test, however, when 18-year-old Fleurette, her youngest sister (actually her own daughter from being seduced as a teenager), runs away from home to join a vaudeville troupe. Her other sister, Norma, wants to bring Fleurette back by force, if necessary. Constance is torn.

Stewart bases her novels not just on a real person but on actual newspaper accounts from the period. Much of what takes place in Miss Kopp's “Midnight Confessions” actually happened, as Stewart shows at the end of the book. Her fiction fills in the blanks with remarkable success.

I have been impressed by each of the Constance Kopp adventures so far and look forward to reading the next one. ( )

I can't believe that I left this Miss Kopp languish in my TBR pile for so long! I adore the characters , writing style, and historical exploration in this series. In this one, Constance finally gets a badge to accompany her handcuffs and handgun, Fleurette goes off with a vaudeville troupe, Norma gets ready for war by training messenger pigeons, and two young women are rescued by Constance from the idiocy of some misogynistic laws of pre WW1 New Jersey while fending off long distance marriage proposals from clueless idiots. Loved it!
Narrator Christina Moore is excellent in her audio interpretation. ( )

"You try to help your prisoners, then?"
"Certainly. Often a little help is all they need to get back on the road to straight living -- sometimes help against others, but very often help against themselves. They come to me often at midnight, after I have gone to bed in my cell. At midnight a woman will tell almost anything if she finds one who is sympathetic to tell it to."
