Like It or Love It: Girl Waits With Gun

Posted on

At its latest meeting, the Mystery Book Club discussed Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart. It’s the first book in Kopp Sisters series. The book is based on the true story of one of the US’s first female deputy sheriffs, Constance Kopp. In 1914, when a ruthless silk factory owner runs down their buggy, a dispute starts between the three Kopp sisters and the factory owner and his gang. Can Constance, assisting the local sheriff, outwit the gang before they harm her family?

Here’s what members of the Mystery Book Club had to say about Girl Waits With Gun:
